That is a good APRS email packet.  But the3 next lines indicate
that you were CONNECTING to RS0ISS and not remaining in UI mode.  If y ou are connected, then you get the "crew not available" text, and you will not be able to see any digipeates for your APRS beacon while you are connected.

APRS and the ISS digipeater have nothing to do with connections.  CONNECTIONS to or via satellties are VERY inefficient and should never be used (normally).
