I've been a Pmail user since the 90's, and this is the first time I've had to resort to this forum. The other day I downloaded v4.80, and it got hung up in the window that wants to tell you about new features. The only way I could find to clear the window was to restart my system. So I decided to go back to v4.73. I backed up the MAIL folder, uninstalled PMAIL, (all three iterations) and reinstalled v4.73. It starts up, but when I restored the backed-up MAIL folder it no longer starts. It gets to "restoring page layout", puts an icon in the tray and then hangs. Any Ideas?
How does one activate the personal dictionary. Everything in my Pegasus 4.8 works perfectly EXCEPT when the spell check encounters new words. I click ADD but when, in a later message the same word occurs again, spell checker does not recognise it. Is there some way to 'switch it on'
[READ MY LAST POST IN THIS THREAD - this was "a loose nut on my keyboard", and not a Pegasus or IER problem. ~Steeley]
In 4.80 (and perhaps earlier versions) with IR 18.104.22.168 (also applies to IR 22.214.171.124 and perhaps earlier), it looks like there may be an issue with the multipart formatting which can cause sent emails to be discarded by the receiving email server.
With Sending Mail - > "Generate multipart/alternative versions of richtext messages" (in the Tools / General Settings menu), the pertinent formatting is as follows...
Priority: normal X-mailer: Pegasus Mail for Windows (4.80.1028 ) Content-type: Multipart/Alternative; boundary="Alt-Boundary-4747.1126761890" X-PMFLAGS: 570950016 0 1 P5768L0U.CNM

Not sure if anyone has experienced but I'm having trouble clicking on any hyperlinks sent to me they're just not opening (tried different colors and still no go. I am using windows 10& Firefox with FF using latest version. Any suggestions?
Also when I go to check my mail, the Pegasus logo appears but it will be about 40-45 seconds to actually hit the program.....server problems??
I enlarged the DPI settings of my computer but somehow it seems that the userface in Pegasus became tiny. How do you make the size of the font from the words highlighted in yellow to the size of the words highlighted in green?
I also have this problem with Draft Messages and other stuff.
I've been a Pegasus Mail user for approaching 25years and for the past several years I've been a Gmail user, with several different email accounts, who has now become seriously inconvenienced by Google's recent introduction of OAuth2.0.
To date I haven't gone down the route of setting up an App Password on each of my Gmail accounts to enable me to continue to use Pegasus Mail; instead for the last couple of months I've relied on being able to access my Gmail mailboxes using a variety of solutions including the Gmail app on my iPhone, accessing the Gmail accounts using a web browser, and using Thunderbird Mail (with OAuth2.0) to access the Gmail accounts, but it's becoming increasingly inconvenient to continue to use these solutions so I'm reconsidering going down the App Password route so that I can revert to using Pegasus Mail. However, there are several unknowns with this approach that hopefully people on here will be able to help with...
If I set up 2FA and an App Password on one of my Gmail accounts, will the same App Password work with the other accounts?
If I set up 2FA and an App Password on my Gmail accounts so that I can revert to using Pegasus Mail, what effect will this have on my abilities to access the Gmail accounts using other means such as the Gmail app on my iPhone - will they still function as at present?
If I set up 2FA and an App Password on my Gmail accounts so that I can revert to using Pegasus Mail, will I be able to cease using 2FA and App Passwords on the accounts when (or if!) Pegasus Mail is eventually approved by Google to use OAuth2.0 for accessing the accounts?
Hopefully someone can help with answers to the above...!
Hello All. The sending function (SMTP) function on my pegasus mail programme is disabled. Every time I attempt to send a message the programme crashes. When I go back in to the programme have done a re-install the problem re-occurs. The programme generates to two usual "ready to send" indicators. In the "admin" file a locked file appears (.lck) and another one I cannot identify tagged as follows : (.pmx). I use two-factor authentication as I am a GMAIL User.
Send a message to me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) with subject line containing send_index to receive an html file containing links to my extensions. I will then mail the required extension to you as a zip file. Any problems with the zip file, let me know.
I was happily using Pegasus Mail 4.73 on Wine on Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia without any problems at all.
Then a Wine upgrade (to 7.13) arrived. I haven't recently had problems with Wine upgrades so I happily let it do its business. Hindsight says different!
The scroll bars wouldn't work, any of them. No problem with the folders box as the mouse wheel still worked. Similarly with the list of emails. Problem with the message box, as for ages the mouse wheel hasn't worked for fancy formatted messages, so losing working scroll bars there is a bit of an issue. Sadly most people nowadays don't understand that email is intended to be a plain text system.
Knowing that I'd get short shrift on a Wine forum unless I was using entirely the latest of everything, I "upgraded" to Pegasus Mail 4.80. All within the new Wine. And now it won't start at all!
Am I alone, or is this a fault common to others? If others have fought their way out of this, any tips to pass on?
Hi, I've used Pegasus Mail from its first introduction and thought knew all its quirks, particularly when changing PCs or moving mail folders to a laptop.
I'm running a fresh install v4.73 on Win7_64. but because i want my mail folders secure I've installed it on a Veracrypt encrypted drive. Pmail opens and runs to its default setup folders.
However, I have a working install with a large mailbox going back years which I want to migrate to the new installation, then prune the folders for only one year of previous mail.
I copied the MAIL folder to the new install and I'm met with a window:
User name, please "In order to access your mailbox you must enter your Pegasus mail username. Please type it below"
I'm assuming this is coming from pmail not Windows, but what is it? I've never encountered a mailbox security access message before and I don't know what Username it's looking for or where I can find it?
