Thanks for the help, I've got it working now, but I seem to be experiencing an 
anomaly which might be a server issue. 

I succesfully connected to VE7SUN today, and, since it was my first time 
connecting to it (or any other server, for that matter), I did an "update 
server" from the "edit" menu. This is how I register my email account info, no?

I'm not sureif that update happened; I don't recall anything specifically 
indicating success nor failure. Anyhow, it sent me message headers, but I don't 
know whose they were - not mine, to my knowledge. I'll paste them here; maybe 
somebody recognizes them as theirs?

Anyhow, I'm guessing perhaps it didn't have my email account info and it used 
someone else's - perhaps the last client's (maybe VE7CUS). Should it not have 
returned an error if I tried to fetch mail headers and it did not have my info? 
Anyhow, I'm glad I at least have successfully communicated with a server - the 
going should be easier from here on :)

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail 
in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And 
radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them 
there. The only difference is that there is no cat.  --Albert Einstein, 
describing radio.
