Convoluted Install

    Convoluted Install

    A professor at my university uses Pegasus.  He recently migrated to an iMac.  In a virtualbox WinXP SP3 install I managed to move his thousands of meticulously maintained Pegasus folders, over to a brand new install of the most recent Pegasus (pretty painless once it was determined some emails lived outside the default structure).  I updated POP3 and/or SMTP settings et cetera and it all worked swimmingly for two weeks.  Folders were deleted, mail sent and received, generally working fine.

     Now it occasionally advertises a new version, and promptly reverts to the initial install settings from the first succesful transfer.  Conceivably this is related to some old number in the ini? In a possibly related issue we see a lot of IMAP errors when sending mail.  Sometimes fine, sometimes not.

    How do I find out why it keeps auto updating itself and stop it?  Manually reinstalling Pegasus latest version doesn't do aught.


    I will attempt to observe this behavior first hand!
