  • Re: Filtering out phishing emails

    Help me here.&nbsp; (I am not a programmer or computer geek, so need to beg your indulgence).&nbsp; The Whitelist is automatically populated only when you send a message TO somebody.&nbsp; So the spoofed addresses in the emails will not be reflected in the Whitelist, and will be passed on through to the Spamhalter filter.&nbsp; This is unable to ...

  • Re: Filtering out phishing emails

    I am not sure you are on the same wavelengths.&nbsp; When the previous poster said he wasn't sure ''what the purpose was'', he wasn't questioning the purpose of the whitelist.&nbsp; What he was asking was what the purpose of the ''List'' option in the Filter Rules was.&nbsp; (It refers only to the distribution lists - why?) Just for what it is ...

  • Re: Filtering out phishing emails

    Neat!&nbsp; I have tried this by creating a distribution list copied from my whitelist, then created a Scan List rule to move any messages with&nbsp; from (or to - and this may or may not cause problems)&nbsp; NOT in the list, into a folder marked Phishing.&nbsp; I will report back as to what actually happens. (And, yes, I appreciate that the ...

  • Filtering out phishing emails

    I am getting a deluge of emails with ''from'' addresses consisting of slightly altered names of people with whom I have exchanged emails in the past, and spoofed headers.&nbsp; They have links, which vary with each and every message.&nbsp; Spamhalter has been completely unable to recognise these, (hardly surprising, given that there are no ...

  • Re: Disappearance of folders

    Absolutely brilliant!&nbsp; Fixed it perfectly.&nbsp; And, probably more important, I understand exactly how it all works, (and why some folders disappeared).&nbsp; Thank you so much.

  • Disappearance of folders

    I am running Pegasus 4.72.572, on Win-7.&nbsp; The latest Windows dot-net and security update in Windows failed to load a week or so ago, but did load today. BUT.. since this last update my Pegasus has become corrupted.&nbsp; (May be chance occurrence, or may be related)&nbsp; I had a number of filing trays, with individual&nbsp; message folders ...

  • Graphics and HTML

    I am an unsophisticated old man, with only a hazy idea of email protocols.&nbsp; So be patient with me...&nbsp; I have used Pegasus for decades, as a POP-3 client.&nbsp; When my university abandoned their own mail system and subscribed to M-S 360, they discontinued POP-3 support entirely. (They have only IMAP.)&nbsp; I do not want my mail stored ...

  • Crash on opening

    Sudden problem developed yesterday afternoon, with no apparent reason.&nbsp; Running PM 4.5, with both regular filtering and Spamhalter enabled, in Win-7.&nbsp; When I opened PM in the afternoon, I got only a partial screen paint, (only New Mail folder listed on left, most of screen below blank), with a message in bottom left saying ''Applying ...

  • Re: Odd characters appearing when creating message

    I am less willing to accept your suggestion that Pegasus has nothing to do with either this or the other issue I identified in a separate post, (sudden loss of all carriage returns, resulting in the message I am typing being re-formatted into one great long line.)&nbsp; When Pegasus suddenly drops into an alternate keyboard layout it is not ...

  • Re: Sudden loss of line breaks

    The issue is not whether Ctl-J reformats the text, (it does), but, rather, what is causing the sudden loss of formatting in the beginning.&nbsp; It is not triggered by backspacing.&nbsp; It happens while I am typing (two finger, and not very accurately hitting keys, so you are correct that it probably has something to do with my typing).&nbsp; But ...
