I'm running Pegasus Mail 4.8 on a new Windows 11 laptop, having installed it a day or so ago.
Today I'm finding that fairly recent mail with attachments -- all of which I've read and filed away -- keeps being reloaded in the "New mail" folder. The attachments have been stripped off, and the message reads:
This message contains binary or non-textual data that cannot be previewed within Pegasus Mail. Filename: ÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌÌ You can work with this file in the message reader's 'Attachments' page.
I can mark them as read, but I cannot delete them or move them elsewhere.
I've checked the internet settings for each of my identities; none of them are set to download messages automatically.
Any solutions? Suggestions will be gratefully received!
After years of running Pegasus mail without issues, a problem with receiving new mail has arisen and I hope you can help me. Upon start-up the Pegasus mail “you have new” mail pop-up banner appears (as normal) and may repeat many times if there is a lot of mail to download (as normal); however, no new mail appears in my inbox. I tried upgrading from version 4.80 to the new 4.81 Beta, but that did not solve the problem. However, if I shut down Pegasus mail and then re-start Pegasus, the new mail now appears (under my red "is urgent” mail). Another new problem, that seems to have occurred simultaneously with the above problem, is that Pegasus mail very often (mostly) will not close normally anymore. I must use Task Manager to force Pegasus to shut down. Hopefully somebody may know a fix without a complete re-install? However, if I do need to do a uninstall /fresh install to solve this problem, how can I make sure that my past inbox /outbox and all my folders will be brought back into the program normally, without losing emails or setting preferences?
Thank you in advance for your help! Kind Regards, jacobsfw November 16, 2023
This issue has been with me a while but I've got into the habit of copying an email link and entering it directly into Firefox browser. I used to think the waiting time up to 10 seconds was due to the browser opening up but I'm not so sure now.
If I put hyperlinks in word docs or any other doc. the hyperlink opens in my browser within seconds. whereas the same hyperlink in a pmail email takes forever, or so it seems. The other day I noticed at the bottom of the pmail screen there was 'Blacklist' filter activity.
Now I'm wondering if this huge delay in opening the browser to render the link is caused by pmail running filters (slowly?) in the background? What filters are running, do they consume a lot of cpu resource, slow things down, and should I disable them? I have AV and other security packages installed..
I just upgraded my old version 4.73 to v4.81. As per the instructions, after installing the new version, I replaced the PMAIL/ADMIN folder with the one from my previous version, but when I open the new client, I don't see any of my old folders. Any idea as to what I'm doing wrong. Thanks
Today one of my users reported that the plain text line with the list of attachments, added by Pmail to all copy-to-self mails, is missing. I checked it with my account and indeed, for all sent mails this added plain text line is missing. I've only updated IERenderer in last week. Could it depend on it?
Until today (29th Oct) my Pegasus Mail (v4.81 public beta of Jan 2023) configuration has functioned perfectly when accessing my several Gmail accounts using the OAUTH2 capability that David introduced into PMail, but as of this morning every attempt to access any of my accounts on Gmail's POP3 server results in an 'Invalid credentials' error.
Included below is a sanitised version of the error message I get when I try to access the Gmail mailbox for one of my usernames; I've hidden my IP address and also the lengthy string which is presumably associated with the OAUTH2 dialogue.

Is anyone else experiencing issues with accessing Gmail today? I definitely haven't changed anything in my PMail configuration so can only surmise that something has happened at the Gmail end...
Just yesterday (2nd Nov) I became unable to send from Pegasus (using latest version). Tonight I got an email from Bigpond saying they noticed I can't send, and the solution is to "verify and update my email settings (eg. Outlook) to authenticated mode." How do I do that in Pegasus? If I can't find a solution I will have to change email clients, which I dread doing after decades in here. Thanks in anticipation, Bill Purcell, Brisbane, QLD
One particular folder appears to be damaged : the error message indicates that I might be possible to reindex the folder in order to repair it. If I try to do that, I get an seemingly endless series of popups that require the user to press "OK" to close it. After having done that for 200 times, I decided to stop and kill the Pegasus process using the task manager. Is there a better way to repair or reindex a folder? The folder was fine yesterday, but is somehow damaged today.
I do not know when this has started, but lately we noticed that replying to a message with the reply button, including the original text message, works as expected, headers (from, to, subject and date sent) as well as the original email body are added properly
From: "B*" To: "H*" h*****@h*****.com Subject: Bitte Nicht Loeschen Date sent: Mon, 23 Oct 2023 17:02:56 +0200
but when replying with a template results with a template it ends up with extra text:
-- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. www.avast.com
-- Diese E-Mail wurde von AVG-Antivirussoftware auf Viren gepr=C3=BCft. www.avg.com ------=_NextPart_000_00B6_01DA05D2.C4E935E0 Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Emails are now taking about 20 seconds to leave Pegasus Mail on my computer. But if I send emails from an app on my phone, like Yahoo Mail or Gmail, or if I log into Yahoo Mail on my computer and send emails from there, emails are despatched instantly.
In the past year I haven't changed any of the Pegasus settings or other settings on my computer.
I recently changed broadband provider. The download and upload speeds provided by my new broadband provider are much faster than those provided by my previous broadband provider. However, the problem is not the time it takes to upload the contents of an email from Pegasus, but rather the time it takes for an email to BEGIN departing from my computer. It seems to me that there is some delayed "handshaking" or authenticity-checking going on before an email can begin to leave Pegasus Mail on my computer, but these are only guesses.
Can anybody suggest an explanation, or better still a remedy, for this?
Recently the Comcast mail servers have proven to be quite the issue but I have found a workaround
If you have express VPN and Pegasus Mail you occasionally get unable to connect authenticate and other VS messages back from our buddies at Comcast and I have traced the majority of the issue to the default settings in the VPN client to get a proper connection to their email servers you must set TCP in the client list otherwise you will not get a reliable connection to their servers
since ice spent a bunch of time troubleshooting this I wanted to pass on my experience and what seemed to be the best fix
Please excuse the grammar and spelling this is a speech to text program and wireless sometimes makes errors it still better than my typing
I have PMAIL 4.41 installed with tons of existing emails and custom folders and settings in it, and now need to update to PMAIL 4.80, because my mail provider requires newer mail protocols.
I am wondering how to do that.
Here is a snippet of the info about my current 4.41 installation, copied out of "About Pegasus" > "Info":
WINPMAIL.EXE directory: T:\PMAIL\Programs Home mailbox location: T:\PMAIL\MAIL New mailbox location: T:\PMAIL\MAIL TMP environment variable: C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Temp TEMP environment variable: C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Temp
Do I just need to install 4.80 and during the installation process 4.80 automatically detects the existing installation and its folders, and keeps it?
Or do I need to manually change paths in some PMAIL 4.80 file?
Or should I just install 4.80 into a new folder, and delete the files in the then created "PMAIL"-folder, and after that paste all files of the existing "PMAIL"-folder of my current 4.41 version into that new "PMAIL"-folder of 4.80?
