You're better off asking nitrogenfingers himself to fix this, as he made the program.

Also note that this isn't a request forum. I'll leave this thread open, for now.

I think what you're trying to do is possible, but I'm not quite sure how to explain it.

(your computer) <----> [(router), <---> (router), ...] <------> (email server)
If you want to do it like the above setup, then you'll need to create some router software, or find some on the forums.

After that, you'll need to make an interface program, or modify the email program(s) so they'll work properly with the routing system. You could alternatively make a 'host' program that'll convert the routing system's messages to appear like normal rednet_message events (you'd run the host program kind of like monitor: the host program would run the email client/server, capture all rednet_message events, and translate them so they come from the right ID (not the router's ID), etc.). This could get complicated, though.

well you know how the modem has only a range of 50 blocks well i want to make a extension to the software where the mailclient sends the message to the nearest router or mailserver and if the router recieves the message i want it to send the message to either the nearest router that is connected to the mailserver or a router(s) that is connected to the mailserver or to send it to that router and so on till it reaches the mailserver and then for the mail server to send it to the mailclient or router(s) that is connected to the mailclient that i am trying to send the message to.

baisically i want the mailclient to be connnected to the mailserver so the mailserver can send the message to the other mailclient through router(s).
