[nos-bbs] Winlink mail and JNOS

I'm now successfully sending and receiving Winlink mail in JNOS using the 
latest JNOS version and the new secure password. The problem was the secure 
password had to be entered in the JNOS password manager in upper case. I 
could log onto the Winlink web site with both upper and lower case.

Thank you Maiko for the jump start.

Jerry, N0MR

I would like that, from time to time, all primitive JNOS2 features
be revamped/improved to the state-of-the-art :)
