Sorry, James, if you are getting this three times, I couldn't, for the
life of me, figure out how to send a plain text email from an android
phone *headdesk*.

Here's the basic concept: https://goo.gl/photos/HTv2hNNxaM66fK2AA


What is the easiest way to set up a sniffer?

I will set up some time this weekend to deep dive documenting this.
The Google doc should take only abou 20 minutes on a *debian box.
Usually less after the first time as I try to cache as much as I can.
I turned on comments if youd like to try it and want to dialogue.


I can also dd a lite weight copy I can verify as bad, first and also
post it online. Should take just a few minutes
