Pegasus crashes on attempted display of certain emails ...

    Pegasus crashes on attempted display of certain emails ...

    Quite recently, Pegasus has been crashing out on an attempt to display certain emails.

    They are all from eBuyer, and Pegasus crashes under all display circumstances, whether no images are displayed,
    whether images are displayed after the message is opened (that is by right-clicking on Show pictures (HTML) ...), or whether
    the source is added to the "remote graphics" list before opening the message.

    After re-starting Pegasus Mail, the offending message is marked as having been read, but is still in the New Mail folder.

    I am perfectly happy to copy an example of the offending messages into a post on this forum, but wondered how it preferred
    for this to be done.

    Thankyou

    Kenneth Spencer

    Kenneth, please do as advised in the static (FAQ) post at the top of this forum first.

    What version of Pegasus Mail are you running?  A recent report of crashes when opening certain messages was resolved by updating to the latest version (v4.73.639).

    Thankyou, Brian - indeed updating to the latest version, 4.73 has resolved it. (Sorry about the delay in replying)

    Its a pity about the loss of Native standard English though ...

     Best wishes

    What are you referring to?  IIFC, the only recent language associated issue is with accessing the help file in language other than English.

    Hi,

    I have a similar/same problem, that has recently started happening.

    (Mostly with ebay, but also with some others) 

    I assume an update to some public domain HTML library has caused this.

    Pegasus Version :  4.73.639

    IERender turned OFF.

    (At least some don't crash when IERenderer is turned on, not well tested) 

    I have made a fairly minimal CNM file (Text below) that will reliably crash my normal Pegasus

    (And a new install, once IERenderer was turned off)


    Thanks 

    Regards

    Roger

    This may have to do with CSS3 not supported yet by BearHTML. Use IERenderer instead unless you are running Pegasus Mail under Wine/Linux.
