    unknown user in Mercury Stats

    Checking over Mercury_Stats msr files I am seeing stats for a user ÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌ

    Quite strange - anyone any ideas?

    I don't log stats so can't check for similar but was hopeful that a response might provide a clue into why Pegasus Mail users occasionally see an entry in the new mail folder list containing ÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌ in both the From and Subject columns.  It goes away following a refresh of the NMF.

    Re: unknown user in Mercury Stats

    Thanks Brian

    I've been wondering if this might be connected with the way I had it set up here. When I used MS Excuse ::cough cough:: I had users in Mercury with the same names as mailing lists.

     Just wondered if that might be contributing  to this weird username appearing in the stats?

    I've removed all unnecessary mailboxes now and restarted Mercury so we'll see what happens.

     

    Out of interest, *how* do you refresh the NMF on Windows? it's just a directory...?

    Re: unknown user in Mercury Stats

    The "NMF" reference is specific to the new mail folder in Pegasus Mail which can be refreshed by closing/reopening it. 

    When "ÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌ" appears there, my sense is that Pegasus Mail had a problem reading or displaying the From and or Subject content of a message.  A refresh of the NMF window fixes it.  I don't know if there is relevance to what you are seeing in Mercury.  The similarity of what is displayed is what caught my eye and why I responded.

    Thanks for trying to help Brian.

     

    Unfortunately, I'm not using Pegasus... and I still get the weird username
