Mike,

In Fldigi, Configure, Miscellaneous, NBEMS, if you check the box labled Transfer direct to executing flmsg, each flmsg that you receive will appear in a list without opening each one. If you uncheck this box then each Flmsg you receive without errors will open up in a new window.

Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 15:03:20 EDT 

An interesting wrinkle to this is if you do not check this box, then every (correct) message will open a new instance of flmsg, as Ron states. However, if yo DO have it checked, the the FIRST message received will open one (1) instance of flmsg, and populate it with the message. The second received message will open the Rcvd Msgs window, and enter the message in that window. Further messages will not open any more windows, and will add to the list in Rcvd Msgs. Note that the first message received is not in the list (Rcvd Msgs) at all, so if you view a different message, and then wish to go back to the first message, you are out of luck and have to open a file browser of some kind. If, however, you had manually opened an instance of flmsg before any messages are received, then ALL messages get listed in the Rcvd Msgs window. Also note that for some reason, configuring fldigi to automatically start flmsg (like it does for flamp) does not work (Bug?).

My personal preference would be for fldigi to (optionally) open flmsg, just like flamp, and then all messages will get listed in the Rcvd Msgs window and can be viewed at will.

Autostart of flmsg does work correctly.  You must have something configured wrong.

If you have Sync modem to fldigi checked in the Flmsg configuration then it will send it with Olivia 8/500 if you have that selected in Fldigi even though it doesn't show in Flmsg. I just tried it and it will work.
