PLEASE no!  If someone has a PC to run UIVIEW then they should
connect to a TELpac node and do their email directly!  The
conversion between the WinLINK system and APRS called APRSlink
is inneficient, and was ONLY designed for those people and those
special circumstances when the user had no other message means
available to him except a D7 or D700 radio.

Using Uiview to access the WInLINK system through the APRSlink,
is something like calling your Mom long distance and asking her
to communicate with your wife in your next room by mailing her a
letter via the post office...
