    Pegasus Mail crashes while sending

    It happens every time I want to sent or forward a message.  Also the minidump file can’t be send by Pegasus Mail. Everything worked for years but on the 18 th dec I had to change the login mailserver for sending mails with encryption security (SSL via STARTTLS). It worked the first time but afterwards everything in Pegasus works fine only I can’t send mail from Pegasus.
    I use windows 10 pro - 10.0.16299 and get an application error code ID 1000.
    See annex.

    Dump report:

    This isn't the dump, if you used the MiniDump extension for creating one you're supposed to just complete and send the message created by MiniDump for being sent with Pegasus Mail. Aside from the contents you posted (which, BTW, disclose details about your system configuration to the public) this message has an attachment which actually contains the memory dump to be analysed with debugging tools provided for software developers. Additionally it's always helpful to provide as many details as possible about the actions and conditons preceding a crash as Martin asked for.

    Re: Pegasus Mail crashes while sending

    Hi Eric,

    if it worked after chainging the encryption and provider didn't change back (tested that?), you should have a look at any files corresponding to sending mails.

    So first have a look at the mailqueue in Pegasus. Is there any mail? In case delete them all. Perhaps have a look at your saved drafts if there are any, you can delete and close Pegasus.

    Next have a look at the files ending on PNX, PMO (drafts), PMW and PMX in your mailbox directory. For any PNX there should be one of the others with same filename. Delete any PMW and PMX and corresponding PNX. If there remains any PNX afterwards - delete it! If there is any PMO with size 0 kb - delete it.

    Start Pegasus and try sending.

    Bye    Olaf

    Hi Olaf, how did you manage to start a new thread with an issue already handled (I could get the crash dump and asked David Harris for help)?

    Hi Michael,

    hmm ... I simply answered the message. It seems Eric created two messages with slightly different subjects.

    bye    Olaf
