Question about WL2K messages
- I sent a message from a "club" system to my winlink address and then I picked it up from my own BPQ BBS via the CMS port "linkage".
Here's my question.
Why does the return address get converted to a hierachical packet address when it came from a winlink system?
Is it possible that the sending client system puts in a "reply-to" somehow?
Here's the example:
Sent message using AirMail from N4xyz@... to AC4IY@.... Sent fine.
Went home, polled my email in Thunderbird and my BPQ system fetched the Winlink message fine for me and I got a message in my inbox, but the return address (or FROM:) is N4xyz@N4xyz.#RICH.VA.USA.NOAM. If I attempt a reply, it wants to send it via packet obviously. This isn't correct. It should send the way it came.
If the AirMail client is setting a "Reply-to" address I need to know for sure so it can be set properly or we will have a confusing mess when dealing with Winlink messages.
Does anyone know if AirMail even has this capability?
Excellent! That will make the config very simple. using the SIMPLE template, a Telnet port with CMS and a TNC port. It's a beautiful thing!

Yes, if a WL2K client connects directly to the CMS then there is no need for the RMS user. But if you want a BBS user to be able to send to an internet address, you need it. If you aren’t running a BBS then it doesn’t apply.
