• Need to insert a PKT Password in PX Generated Netmail Packet

    Friends,

    I have a little problem here that I am desperate for some help for. I use Winserver and Platinum Express for my Fido Tosser and Bink D/P protocol to
    send my e-mail out. PX will put .pkt passwords in all echomail packets but when I have to generate a netmail packet it leaves it unsecured without a .pkt password.

    Is there a utility out there that can append a .pkt password to a non secured .pkt file? If someone could whip one up that works I would be greatful.

    My uplink that I route my mail through is not budging in his requirement to have .pkt passwords on all netmail messages. I've been told that it's
    unlikely we will see any more Platinum Express upgrades or developments.

    I've tried (unsuccessfully) to get fastecho to pick up the .pkt file from a generated inbound directory and move it to a .pkt passworded file. All I can get it to do is toss it to a .msg and leave it there.

    If someone has any other ideas on how I can get my netmail .pkt to route and send properly I would be very thankful for your help.

    Thanks

    Allen
