AirMail and Viewfax software

This is the download page for Sailmail’s Airmail client program for SailMail. Airmail is compatible with all Windows versions from XP onward including Windows-11, both 32 and 64-bit versions. Airmail also runs well on Mac’s using ParallelsVMwareVirtualBox, etc, and on Linux under WINE (with some difficulties, not really recommended). Supported modems include the SCS PTC-II-family and “Dragon” modems plus most Pactor-1 modems.

Airmail is a single installation file that includes everything needed: Airmail and its Viewfax weather companion, the “Icepac” propagation software, and USB drivers for the SCS modems. 

Updating: Your current Airmail installation can be updated in the same way as a new installation– download and install the latest version. Your settings and messages will not be disturbed. To update a Winlink version to also support Sailmail, download and install the same Airmail version from this page and install it into the same folder.
