All morning I have been playing with PSKmail.

So, I did upgraded my jPSKmail to 1.4b7 - that was easy thanks to precise 

Now I have no problem connecting to my server in PSK250 mode, that is 
recognized by server.

 I still get error :

Use of uninitialized value $lengthlastframe in numeric gt (>) at 
/usr/local/share/pskmail_server/arq.pm line 4925

I tirtured my client - server many times.
I did 4 trials to see how modes are switching depending on condition. While 
connected I simply turn server's radio off and waited until mode deteriorated 
to MFSK32 and switched radio on again. Things worked as expected. One point, 
maybe, can we make blocks smaller while in slower modes, I understand that it 
will make communication slower, but also give a chance to upgrade the mode if 
there is a chance. 

Next I tried send some mails. 
Sending mails from client to server both without attachment and with it worked 
well, but receiving mails from server with compressed OTA eneble created 
problem. Email without attachment ended up being empty ( From NULL, Subject 
NULL, Date , Size 85) - that happened numerous times . When I disable OTA I was 
able to receive mail with no trouble, 
While receiving mail with attachment and OTA the same story, null in subject, 
From, and not decompressed text in the body of email. So I guess the problem 
with decompression on client side?? Any idea how to fixed this ??

Also twice observed situation when server and client got out of synch while 
sending file from client to server. I am thinking is  that server i is 
transmiting RSID while client is sending a file so is not able to receive it 
and react. I guess adjusting squelch may help. 

Thanks all of you for help,
