FW: [BPQ32] Mailchat /smtp server
I just tested outlook express with BPQ Mail Server, I sent a test message
size of 60138 bytes with no problems,
I have sent test attachments of at least 70K to another BPQ Mail Server then
to his mail client, you would not want
To do this over RF but it does work.
As far as a time/date stamp, it is included in the R-Line, below is an
example from today:
R:140103/1415Z 12705@VE3UIL.#EON.ON.CAN.NOAM <mailto:12705@VE3UIL.>
I don't think you have left anything out, let's let John G8BPQ chime in for
the correct answer.
Just as a Note: I had someone try to break in to my SMTP/POP server by
sending random passwords
Robotically, be careful with Enable remote access.
Let me know if I can be of further help.

Subject: [BPQ32] Mailchat /smtp server
I operate the MailChat POP/SMTP server with several email
clients on my LAN. During a recent exercise, I each of these clients was
associated with a different radio operator and radio. This tied the traffic
coming in/out of BPQ32 nicely with the "normal" radio operations on other
There are a few things I need help with on to make this work
The MailChat POP/SMTP does not seem to put dates and times
on the emails. Is there a place I'm missing to turn that on?
The POP/SMTP seems to be limited by size. At one point I
cut/pasted several messages that came in on MT63 to a single email, and sent
to another desk using the mail server in MailChat. I discovered that if too
much text was in the email, the POP/SMTP server hung on that message and did
not function until it was deleted from the message que in Mailchat.
I'm using the windows software now, but can set up a rasp-pi
if these things are solved in linbpq.
Thanks for the bug fix; I look forward to the next version.
The large message that hung the mail server was in the middle of an exercise last November; I had to delete the message in mail chat to get things moving again; I'll see if I can find it in the "sent" mail folder on the email client, test again, and send you the message if it still hangs things up.
Another list member pointed me to the maximum message size field in the configuration tabs of mailchat; I increased the number from default and tested. It seems to work as expected now. You are correct, this would be too much for RF, but is what I need for the LAN.
There is no physical connection in this LAN to the internet; so not particularly worried about security. The warning is good advice.
The support here is excellent. Thank!
