Hi Wolf,

I don't think it is difficult, as both pskmail and the OpenBCM BBS use 
interfaces. It would be really nice to have a coupling between the two entities.
But the time I can put into the project is limited to 24 hrs a day. We are 
to find a workaround for this, but until now we have to live with that.

Having said this, it would be nice if we could find somebody who is 
on the subject, and who could tackle this project. 
I would be available to help on the pskmail side.

I am sure it would be a valuable extension of the possibilities of both systems.

Meanwhile there is a 'cheap' solution, a local mailbox in the server.
You can send mail to it by using CALL@SERVER as an address. The SMTP agent 
will then deliver the mail to a local mailbox. This is maintenance-free. No 
handling hassle etc.
