ok, lets sort this one out... maybe the install scripts don't yet do what I 
Are you running client and server on the same machine? Before installing the 
server for the first time 
you should remove the .pskmail directory, as both server and client use it. It 
also helps if 
you copy the files into the .pskmail directory manually in that case (check 
what the ./install.sh script does..)
If the install script finds an existing .pskmail dir it will not copy the files 
into it (to prevent you from copying 
files over your config at upgrade time...).

Now for some quick tests:


Can you uncomment  arq.pm line 2570 ($logfile = 
"$ENV{HOME}/.pskmail/client.log";) in the 
archive and run ./install.sh  again?


Probably the server is missing pskmailrc.pl in ~/.pskmail, can you copy your 
from ~/ to ~/.pskmail? If this is the case it will also miss the other files in 
Best thing to do may be to delete .pskmail and rerun ./install.sh on the server.
