On April 4th, 2019 Bill / W1WAB on Winlink (now known as RMS Express) presented a working session on the configuration and operation of Winlink Express. The Winlink Express program enables email over RF; although it can be used standalone, using just the Internet.
It operates much like the old Outlook Express mail-client in Windows
To download Winlink : Click Here
The current version is 1-5-20-0
Completing the settings screen with your callsign and password sets up your <<yourcallsign>>@winlink.org email account, as soon as you send an email using the program you can send an email to any regular email account, or to any other <<yourcallsign>>@winlink.org account.
Sending email Select:
- New message
- Select Winlink message
- Compose the email
- Post to the outbox
- Open Session
- Press ‘start’.
Your message will be sent via the Internet.
Receiving email: same process, just compose and send your email in your normal email client program, but include “//wl2k” (without the “) in the subject line, and send it
