Very strange, those are my emails. I don't know why you were able to read the headers. I decided to give up on THOR22 as I had nothing but problems using that mode. First of all I didn't realize the client always went back to psk250 when you restarted then after I connected to the server, both the server and the client would transmit at the same time when I tried QTC and I never got the headers. It seems with THOR the server has to do a lot of "thinking" before it answers and by that time the client has retransmitted just as the server is replying.

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.
