    MercuryD not saving pop3 account entries...

    Hi,

     

    Version  4.8

    MercuryD not saving entries added.  Click Add, add Host etc, click SAVE, windows disappears and when you re-open the new entry is missing.  Re-start of mercury does not help, as far as I know there are not permissions issues.

     

    ???

     

    Thanks much,

    Hi MP,

    I experience this also from time to time. It seems that you must not save any new entries when Mercury D (POP3 Client) is just polling the external e-mail accounts. Only when Mercury D is in idle phase you should press the SAVE button for new entries.

    Greetings

    Joerg,

    Well your suggestion got the gear moving....I tried pausing MercD, then closing Mercury and restarting and pausing it, both no go.  What did do it was a machine restart, pause all services, and then add!  Not sure the pausing all was necessary but that is what I did and it finally stuck.

    Got it saved now.

    Thanks!
