Can you tell I'm a bit lost
Now you have me confused
CMS is the Common Message Server and is used for internet access to your radio e-mail accounts. So, if you don't have a radio available you can use your radio e-mail software to connect to the CMS over the internet and retrieve your e-mail that would normally be sent over the radio. For that you don't need frequencies, etc.
Are you trying to use the PACTOR system to access a regular e-mail system (like GMail, or Hotmail, or...)? Doesn't work like that. You should have an e-mail account like CallSign@Winlink.org
. You then use your radio on the frequencies in the table to connect to a station, and send/retrieve your e-mail.
Maybe you can give us a slightly bigger description of what you have and what you are trying to accomplish? If you give us your callsign and tell us what system (winlink or Sailmail) I can send a test message if you like (do not post it as an e-mail address - just put your callsign somewhere in the post and somewhere else tell us what service
you are using - or PM me with it - you really don't want to publish a PACTOR e-mail address too broadly).
