Greetings: I have the nosaprs documentation..

Tuned to the 30Metre APRS fq am able to print several stations reliably
so thought I'd try to send eMail to an INet address, via my PK232 TNC..

Invoking aprsc; am able to enter /r <callsign> and then enter
:EMAIL:user at someisp.net Short text.. The xmitter keys and sends a

Invoking F9 I can view the sent intermixed with the previous receive
reports and all looks well, AFAIK.. However if the /r callsign I enter
was not heard I'm not able to enter another /r callsign without getting
the report "APRS Message Centre Already Active." How do I reset that in
order to enter another callsign try?? If I enter reset 1, the whole
program crashes back to the $> prompt...

I, also,  haven't gotten far enough yet to figure if "local" or
"passthru" is correct for the aprs email entry.. Local is default of
course.. TIA.. (Do I need to quote all the .nos entries, for this
