It is important to note that the APRSlink system was 
Designed to allow a D700 or D7 HT user to send and
Receive his WinLink or regular Email using only the
Radio and not even need a PC.  This is not immediately
Obvious on the APRSlink web page. 

If someone has a PC, then usually they would log onto 
a TELPAC node directly to Read their mail.  So the 
Real advantage of APRSlink is being able to send/rx
Email using only the D7/D700 radio front panel if you 
are in A remote situation and need this capability. 
Think Emergency preparedness....   De WB4APR
