Pegasus Mail

Although I intended that v4.62 would be the last v4.x version of Pegasus Mail, it became apparent that there were numerous small problems that would be best fixed by another interim release, rather than waiting until the first iterations of Pegasus Mail v5. As a result, we have put together v4.63, which has over 70 small changes, bug fixes and corrections. The modifications are mostly internal, and there are few visible external or cosmetic changes in the program. It should be very stable, and it is our intention that it serve as the formal release while the v5 beta process takes place over the course of 2012. A parallel release is being made of both German and English versions, with other translations to follow soon.

It's also worth noting that the Pegasus Mail installer and executable files are now digitally signed, using my name ("David Harris"). If your browser or installer complains about them being unsigned, or tells you that they have been signed with a signature that does not use my name, then the files are not authentic. A small security measure, but we believe it is quite worthwhile.

Version 4.61 is an interim release – not quite

version 5, but part of the way there. We're releasing it primarily

because it incorporates some important bug fixes, but it has some

extremely worthwhile new capabilities too.

  • New HTML renderer  HTML has

    become increasingly common in e-mail, even though it is actually not

    especially well-suited to the medium and is technically challenging to

    implement there. Version 4.61 includes a new HTML renderer that uses

    the built-in power of Internet Explorer to render HTML. Developed by

    Michael in der Wiesche, this renderer has been exhaustively tested and

    secured, and we believe it meets all our very high standards for

    security. For people who really don't trust Internet Explorer, though,

    Martin Ireland's BearHTML renderer has also been improved and can be

    used instead with a single click of a button.
     

  • New graphics, updated interface

     Version 4.61 sports beautiful new graphics designed by Sven Henze. The

    program is also most of the way towards a redesigned user interface

    with a more "modern" 3D look. We believe the combination of Sven's

    graphics and the new look make the program very attractive in a

    classical way.
     

  • Numerous bug fixes  including,

    but not limited to the following: HTML messages with very long lines

    will now render correctly; mailto: specifiers are now removed correctly

    when adding addresses to addressbooks and lists; fixed crashes caused

    by various types of malformed message; corrected the colour selector

    for filtering rules; allowed folders to be dragged onto closed trays

    when rearranging the folder hierarchy... and many more.
     

  • Accent expansion in the glossary

     you can now create accented characters using the Glossary Expansion

    key (Ctrl+E in the English version). Simply type the base character

    followed by the accent you want added, then press Ctrl+E. For example,

    to create an e-acute character (é) simply type e' then press Ctrl+E.

    For a complete table of the accented characters that can be created,

    consult the full Pegasus Mail help file.
     

  • Confirm-reading prompts  You can

    now have Pegasus Mail prompt you for whether or not a

    confirmation-of-reading message is sent when a message contains a

    request for one (the original options for always and never sending them

    remain available as well). Make this change in the "Advanced" settings

    page.
     

  • Size column for drafts and queued mail  The window that displays draft messages and messages in the sending queue now includes a size column, by popular request.
     
  • Attachment size controls  System

    administrators wanting to control the maximum sizes of attachments sent

    with the program can now do so by running the LIMITS.EXE program

    supplied with the system. LIMITS.EXE allows you to specify both soft

    and hard limits (a "soft" limit pops up a warning but still allows the

    user to add the attachment, while a "hard" limit does not allow the

    attachment to be added). LIMITS.EXE places values in the Windows

    Registry, and system administrators may wish to remove it from the

    installation directory to a location not accessible to users.
     

  • Commandline and GUI versions of MBXMAINT

     The Mailbox Maintenance utility, MBXMAINT, now comes as two versions:

    MBXMAINT.EXE is a commandline utility that can be used in scripts,

    while MBXMAINT_UI is the traditional GUI version of the application.

    Both have also been slightly improved in the types of error conditions

    they can handle.
