Hello Greg,

Glad to see you using Pskmail.

The objective of the session password was to ensure that, since the details
for a given call sign are stored on the server you use, if someone was to
use your call sign they could not use your email address to send
unauthorized emails.

I think the initial request came from a MARS member, but I am not sure.

You can use the same password for all servers since it is stored encrypted
at the server.

Let us know how you go. If you were to get the same error after the
setpassword entry, it means that the authentication to your mail server
failed. If so, verrify the details and check if you need
yourUsername@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx instead of just yourUsername.

Currently I am very interested in your usage and your experience with the
Android version since we just released the beta version.

Best 73, and Merry Christmas.
