The attached whitepaper was created to assist users who needed to move their mailbox directory. The need was prevalent when Windows 10 broke Pegasus Mail for everyone who had it installed in the \Programs Files directory. Fixing it required a clean installation of Pegasus Mail to an unprotected directory followed by a restoration of the mailbox data from the old Pegasus Mail installation. The process is also appropriate for anyone who needs to copy mailbox data to an installation of Pegasus Mail on a different PC or who is having problems with Pegasus Mail and wishes to start with a clean install while maintaining their data.
There have been some changes to Pegasus Mail since it was written but it remains a valuable resource. Specific questions about the process can be posted in the Community Discussions and Support category of this forum.
This version is exclusively about fixing minor issues, annoyances of and enhancing error handling in several places plus hopefully fixing some crashes and hangs under certain conditions some of which I could only duplicate on WinXP.
This is probably the last upgrade of Bearhtml to be made available before Pegasus Mail V5 becomes available. Basic support for Html V5 is included in this release, and some CSS V3 is also included. The implementation of Html V5 is somewhat problematic, as the software vendors implementing the conversion from Html V4 to Html V5 have different interpretations of the new functions. Also of concern is that migration of Html V4 code is being implemented by converting to CSS V3 instead of Html V5.
From time to time I may release further upgrades to resolve these vendor implementation problems. Please bear in mind that you can flip over to using IERenderer if Bearhtml cannot resolve displays correctly.
PMICAL 3.4 is a major upgrade to the existing versions that users may have. It has been introduced to fix various problems in Windows 10 in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes, and can deal with all the current versions of Microsoft Outlook generated calendar events.

NewsMail V2 re-introduced with fixes for Windows 10 systems, including 64-bit Windows. This utility can download News server articles via NNTP protocol, and convert them into Pegasus Mail mail messages. Either individual messages or digest collections of messages can be delivered to Pegasus Mail. There are not many publically available NNTP severs, but quite a few installations still offer NNTP as a way of sharing messages and data.
This update for SendDoc and SendDoc2 fixes problems caused by Microsoft disabling DDE in Windows 10 if user does not have Microsoft Office installed.
It required the installation in the c:\pmail\programs directory, of the MAPIPM.DLL available at this site at: http://community.pmail.com/files/folders/pegadd/entry40687.aspx This file is normally included in the standard distribution of Pegasus Mail.
Questions or issues should be addressed to me (Martin Ireland) at email@example.com
Update to Virscan to support Microsoft Windows Defender AV. See Virscan.i. Also updated DenyExtensions list in Virscan.i to support to remove rejection of DOC, XLS, and PPT DOCF type documents, but forcing scanning.
This utility, given a filename will report the currently associated application that will "open" the file selected. If the result is blank, there is no application currently associated with the filetype.
is an extension to the Pegasus Mail program. This extension is capable of handling quotes; you can collect quotes, organize them in several files and create special Pegasus Mail files in order to use them in your email messages.
This utility will hold a message until scheduled send date then move it to the Pegasus Mail output queue. Instructions with the program show how the message needs to be prepared and moved to the PENDING directory. On a regular basis this program should be run to detect any waiting messages that now need to be sent. User is cautioned to ensure that mailing day is not following weekend dates. Especially for things like weekly and monthly reports that need time to prepare attachments etc before mailing out.
This utility can be run either as at Startup or via a task scheduler such as Wincron.
Utility is freeware available from: http://www.lexacorp.com.pg/software/daymove.zip
Minor update to this small extension that allows Pegasus Mail to run external programs by clicking on a toolbar icon. Additionally a parameter can be passed in to the Dll which will be passed on to the invoked program, which requires an update to the *.fff FORM DATA line .
