The ax25 BPQ and FBB bbs have a pop and smtp server and are set to 
certain ports different from my regular linux server to avoid a conflicts.

Fetchmail pops from BPQ, FBB, Jnos and other Internet email accounts to 
a linux mail server.
So everything for me at whatever mail address provider ends up in one 
mail account at my server.

Thunderbird at the client computers reads the mail from the server using 
IMAP so that all mail remains available
for all other clients  so everything keeps in sync. (sent, read, 
whatever) You will see exactly the same, sent, read and
the other mail directories at whatever computer you are at the lan with 
the same contents.

My Thunderbird mail inbox at whatever computer for my account contains 
mail to different mail To: addresses for me, all in one big inbox.
At the account settings you can setup outgoing smtp server(s) and 
identities. Separate identities are setup for these (To:) addresses
You can link an identity to a particular smtp server for delivery. ax25 
and Internet/Amprnet mail handling is just the same, you just
fill in an ax25 mail address like a regular Internet  mail address.

If I reply to an ax25 mail for ve3tok at ve3tok.#scon.on.can.noam from 
ja1abc at 7M3TJZ.13.JNET1.JPN.AS for instance, the
write pane in Thunderbird will show automatically "From: 
ve3tok at ve3tok.#scon.can.noam" and sending it will go to the right smtp 
server what is
the one at my ax25 bbs in this case. This is valid to whatever identify 
the mail addressed is to in this inbox.

In a new message to whatever ax25 / Internet mail address I can change 
the From: address identity (drop box)  from  the default.

Amprnet, Internet and ax25 personal mail handling are fully integrated 
from whatever computer at the lan.
