HI Rein,

I have re-sent the mail record and everything seems to be working now.

But I don't understand the usage and objective of the :SETPASSWORD thingy
below. Looking at the client code it seems to create a key but I haven't
seen that being exchanged between the client and server and still I can
access my email.

So I am at a loss as to how that works, and I read the documentation this
time :)
