    4.61 (minor) problems

    A few problems with Pegasus 4.61 (because they are minor problems I put them in one posting):

    • the menu entry "Window" and the WindowBar present different lists. As of this version the menu entry apparently does not list open individual mails only folders
    • there is no "x"-button to close the queued mail folder (nor a "Window"->"Close" menu entry), but Ctrl-F4 works (same as in previous versions)
    • as far as I remember the previous version were satisfied to show new mail in "Folder - New mail" (when it was open?). This version insists to focus on "New mail folder"
    • in Folder-Preview mode one (at least I) cannot see which window is active: the selected folder and the selected mail are marked the same way. I would consider it helpful if the selection in the active window differed (same as in previous versions)


    I don't know if the following is a good idea:

    • Allow in "Message properties" to change the date

    Recently I had a mail with a date setting of 2005. I took a while to discover it in the New mail folder. To be able to find it in the Main folder I had to edit the new mail file manually.

    vdhagen:

    It's actually a bit more complex (and David Harris cannot provide a solution), there will be a (fixed) work-around with an upcoming IERenderer update.

    vdhagen:
    there is no "x"-button to close the queued mail folder (nor a "Window"->"Close" menu entry), but Ctrl-F4 works (same as in previous versions)
    Don't use maximized (inner) windows and you'll not encounter this (IIRC David Harris doesn't know how to fix this): I'm using "pseudo-maximized windows", i.e. open each window as the only one in Pegasus Mail and click Window => Tile, then close it (provided you have Tools => Options => Basi settings => Save ... desktop state ... enabled).

    vdhagen:
    as far as I remember the previous version were satisfied to show new mail in "Folder - New mail" (when it was open?). This version insists to focus on "New mail folder"
    I don't think so ...

    vdhagen:
    in Folder-Preview mode one (at least I) cannot see which window is active: the selected folder and the selected mail are marked the same way. I would consider it helpful if the selection in the active window differed (same as in previous versions)
    I cannot duplicate this ...

    Thanks for the response. On the last point I was probably not precise enough. In "Folder preview" there are three subwindows. In each subwindow a selection is displayed white on black and I can't see which selection is "active"

    Enable Tools => Options => Basic settings => Use system-defined colours ... and you're done with it.
