But I cannot receive a file in the Newton's inbox when I choose to receive and when I send a file from my Mac.  I was hoping to install some packages using this method.  Any thoughts on how I can get this working?  I followed the instructions found at http://40hz.org/Pages/Blunt.

It's been a while since I used my Pico Card & Blunt, but some basic
troubleshooting steps. First, to make sure Blunt et al are working and
that your Newton is paired with your Mac, try sending something from
the Newton to the Mac first. Timing can be key when receiving files
via Bluetooth on the Newton, so make sure that you click the "Send"
button on the Mac immediately after (but not before) the "Receive"
window pops up on your Newton. I recall also finding times where I
needed to perform a soft reset to get Blunt working again. Naturally,
there's also the Bluetooth Setup package where you can try re-pairing
and/or deleting, reconfiguring, and re-pairing.

Hope something in that is helpful,
