The image is a java executable (.jar) file, which can be started with :
java -jar javapskmail.jar

The easiest way is to copy the image over an older one, e.g. install 
jpskmail-0.5.1 with the installer, and copy the alpha image over the 
javapskmail.jar file.
That will make sure your config files are used properly, and also the rxtx
