I have just installed the Server 2.0.3 and if I am understanding this
correctly, it is now possible to send you a local mail through my server
using PA0R@PI4TUE then drop it off on my server? And yes, I do have an
Internet connection. If so, this is huge! How does the server send the mail
to the pskmail.org site?
