Probably a small issue in the bigger scheme of things, but I still have to modify rflinkserver.pl to connect to my ISP's SMTP server.

In the subroutine send_mail{}, I still have to modify the line :-
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new($relay,Debug=> 1);

to read:-
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new($relay, Hello => 'my.mail.domain',Debug=> 1);

Would having this entry permanently set break the system for other people?
Maybe a option to switch this on or off read from ~/.pskmail/pskmailrc.pl ?

Hi all,

I don't know how many of you follow the twitter streams but we have been
working on a few things and have talked a bit about it on twitter. Twitter
is nice but it does cut down the number of messages sent to the mailing
list, figured I should inform about what we are currently working on to
not have the list go completely quiet.

Anyway, it seems sending emails with attachments are broken through gmail.
Its fine with "normal" smtp servers, its just gmail. We should release an
update there very soon as the problem is located and handled. Sending
short and standard emails through gmail smtp is fine, its just when an
attachment is added that there is an issue.

Date and timestamp for messages has been acting strangely. I'm to blame
there as that time stamp is lacking a time zone indicator. Smtp requires
local time for that time stamp and when the time zone is missing between
servers it can transform the time in various ways. Thats why emails
sometimes seems to have been sent from the future (a few hours ahead).

Another thing I have not addressed yet but would like to is the status
messages sent while connected to a server. The other day I looked at a new
user checking for emails. ~QTC was sent to the server and it answered "No
mail". The user then disconnected. The server should really have answered
"No record for you, don't know how to get your email" as there was nothing
in that database when I checked. There could also be other things to
report, like "Login refused" or any other problem.

Perhaps this can be start of a thread where you can add whatever you would
like changed/fixed? Perhaps we can even "crowdsource" and handle the most
asked for things first?

Anyway, a sunny and really beautiful day here in Stockholm.
