HELP! Winlink + SCS DR7800 + ICOM801e + Airmail 3.5.036

Looking for suggestions. I am trying to get underway for an E -> W Atlantic passage in a just purchased boat. Cannot get SSB Email working.

The hardware:
SCS P4 Dragon DR7800
Remote radio control from modem
Blue tooth from PC (XP) to modem.

Airmail 3.5.036 installed overtop of WinlinkExpress
Winlink frequencies inserted.
system.Sailmail.ini removed.

The problem:
No stations will respond. I have attempted close to 100; with an eye to distance to station and frequency.

What does happen is this:
I open an HF Terminal session.

Connection to the modem display as OK

I select a frequency (my list is current as of today).

The ICOM is now signalling REMOTE and has tuned to the requested frequency.

I listen, no traffic.

I click the go button.

The modem makes noises and the lights dim. It cycles Tx / Rx pulling over 10amps (12 volt)

After a while, it gives up, no answer.

Other information:
I am using Airmail instead of RMS (Winlink) Express because I did not get even this far with RMS Express. Could not get the radio remote control from the modem configured correctly.

I am in a marina. I know that is not the best situation.

I did the Airmail install the way I did due to instructions found at this link:
