Thanks again for the help.

The server is now on the air 24/7 minus breakdowns and upgrades. It is a Kenwood TS-440SAT running 25 watts to an 80 meter inverted Vee through a tuner. A separate 30 meter antenna may be on the spring project list. I have added the server info to the wiki. Now I'll have to see how well the 30 meter path works to the boat :>)

This was changed because the server would go on endlessly without disconnecting, and some people just forgot to disconnect or the connection would be lost before disconnect.

The server now desconnects after X restries or idling. Increasing $Maxretries 
will solve your

Betreff: [pskmail] server disconnects after every 7 handshakes

After updating server files yesterday to cure the pop3s problem, I notice that the server issues a disconnect after 7 handshakes with the client, if the client is idle (not sending or receiving mail, etc). The client then immediately sends a connect request, the server reconnects and sends WB5CON 0.2.9-I>

This disconnect and reconnect continues every seven handshakes until the Quit button is pushed on the client side or activity resumes.

Is this a new 'feature' or perhaps I need to update more files. I was running 0.2.6 server and then updated arq.pm, pskmailrc.pl, and rflinkserver.pl from Per's subversion server.
