    Hi aquola, Smile

    I am sending the mails not directly. I use the queue. Then I copy the necessary message (s) before sending in the relevant Pegasus mail folder and after that I send the message. So I have the complete mail with all attachments in the Pmail mail folders as a completely copy without that I have to send the Mail as a BBC to my self.

    I understand you, but at the moment this is th only way so safe completely mails with all attachments without sending the mail (s) to my self.

    Thank you Peggy,

     

    if I understand you correctly basically you're manually copying your emails before sending them. It's an option for sure and thanks for sharing.

    Just wish there would be a flawless way to do it. When software requires users' workarounds or extra steps then there's a flaw.

    I know is not easy for David, with funding stuff and everything, I just hope there might be a chance to see this option in the (near) future.

    AW: How Pmail 5 will handle attachments?

    Hi aquola, Smile

    I click when the mail is ready to send (with the needed attachments) the message send button, then I open the queue and in the queue window I mark the message and then I click copy in  the queue window  ......

    aquila:
    Would Pmail creates a link to the local file would already be something, rather what I see is just a plain text such as: "D:\Works\Production\Client\ClientIn\Reference\Images\Sky.jpg", not even mentioning serve paths where folder structure can be even worst than that.

    Seems a good idea to me ... and is that simple. Just tested in a plain text mail:

    • file:\\G:\W32APPS\INTERNET\PEGASUS47\FILETYPE.PM
    • file:\\G:\W32APPS\INTERNET\PEGASUS47

    First one opens the file in editor, second one opens Windows Explorer with that directory in focus. Perhaps both could be added - the link on directory may help to have a look, if there are different versions of that file. First example seems to be very easy with minimal load on programing. simply add "file:\\" to the path.

    bye   Olaf

    Re: How Pmail 5 will handle attachments?

    Slightly off-topic. The two examples above using the file:// protocol actually need three slashes before the file address, ie:

    file:///g:\w32apps\internet\pegasus47  The third slash marks where the host name would go. See RFC 1738 section 3.10 The default host name is LOCALHOST, so the example fully expanded would be: file://localhost/g:\w32apps\internet\pegasus47

    The various browsers handle this differently, some tolerate the missing slash, others fail silently.

    Hallo Martin,

    irelam:

    Sorry - my fault and Pegasus is that amazing fault tolerant Smile - backslashes should not be there too - right?

    Hey Olaf,

     

    so you're basically saying adding a link to the path could be doable? That would be helpful already...

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I only said, what must be changed in outgoing copy ...  David will decide, if the hack is easy to do for him ...
