Great new features on the server and client! I'll install, test, and provide feedback in the next day or two.

I had a few minutes to get started and put the perl modules on the server. Also had to install Email::FolderType, Module::Pluggable, and File::Path::Expand but they got prepended to the modules listed below.

Great work(?)!

I uploaded a new version of the server:

The following changes have been made:

* Receiving APRS beacons now without necessity to link
* Built in local mbox.
* Radical changes to timing to fit PSK125.
* New server prompt giving more, and shorter, information.


You must install a few perl modules via cpan:

There are slight changes to the pskmailrc.pl file.

Local Mbox

As requested by various users there is now a local mailbox in the server
which functions without the internet connection.
Mailbox address is the server call, e.g. PA0R@PI4TUE.
You can only reach this mailbox via pskmail, not via internet (which is
not present remember... (hehe...))
You can generate the mailbox by simply sending a mail to the mailbox,
the account is generated automatically.
You can list the mails with ~LISTLOCAL
You can delete the mails with ~DELETELOCAL x x x
You can read the mails with ~READLOCAL x x x
This facility has been added for special purposes, normally you would
like to use the internet account.
You can see if somebody has left mail for you in the new prompt:

PI4TUE 0.2.9-IL2M4>

meaning you have 2 local mails and 4 on your internet account...
The 'I' means there is a working internet connection.

Enough for some nice testing...
