Thanks for your reply.  My error I meant send email to
system at microvax3100.vintagecomputer.net

If the older version of vms and multinet have these limits then so be it.
I found only newer docs for Multinet to use.  Whoever owned this machine
before me must have used for local mail and some sort of development or
computer support work before open Internet emailing.  I have to pull the
battery, etc. and stabilize the system but I prefer to keep everything
as-was and not upgrade the services. I only changed the networking values
so I could do comms.
