[pskmail] Re: SSL error for gmail using pskmail_server

And the solution for the bug in the SSL.pm perl script is (from a debian site):

Replace the first string with the second:



With this fix I’m now able to send outbound messages on gmail. Inbound ones are 
not available over the server - it still reports invalid email settings. But - 
there is progress!

Now - my test messages have text that says:  "PSKmail message from none” Where 
does this “none” come from? I wonder if I have to set "none” = “user” to 
receive emails sent to this “none” entity.
