The easiest and simplest way is to right-click, "open message in web browser", then print from the browser.

[quote user="djmeydey"] Is there any possibility to use html in outgoing e-mails? [/quote]

Pegasus will automatically send emails in HTML if you include any formatting or hyperlinks, images etc when composing the message, provided the "Disable all text styling options (never send styled mail)" option in the "Message formatting" tab of the Tools -> Options... dialogue is unchecked.

I think if you check the "Rich text" box in the top of the composer window it will also send the message in HTML.  Inserting formatting etc as described above will automatically check this box if it isn't already checked.

It also helps if you ensure the "Do not display the editor 'styles' toolbar" option, in the same tab is also unchecked.  However even if the styles toolbar is hidden you can still do formatting using accelerator keys, eg control/B for bold etc.

You should also make sure that "Generate multipart/alternative versions of richtext messages" is checked in the "Sending mail" tab of Tools -> Options...   Otherwise, your formatted messages will be sent in HTML only, rather than with alternative plain text and HTML parts.  The former is not considered good practice, and HTML-only messages may be rejected in some quarters.

See the help texts for the two Tools -> Options... tabs for more information.

Thanks toab,

you hit it ! [:D]

-ROAM is the right thing to solve this problem!

As the stick is already protected with the U3-System,  with this option I can run PM from any XP-Computer, no more Sign-In is required.

 

Thanks again !

Solved it myself, using info from http://community.pmail.com/forums/2551/ShowThread.aspx: I've found pmail.ini, where the temporary folder is actually written to be

Temporary files directory                 = C:\Windows\Temp\Pegasus

Now although C:\Windows\Temp was no problem, the \Pegasus subfolder wasn't there anymore, and apparently Pegasus doesn't create a fresh one automatically.

 

Sorry if I bothered anyone - and hopefully other people will benefit of the problem + solution sometime.

[quote user="jcp"]

is there a way to show the sender's email-address instead of (or additionally) to his alias name in the bar above the preview-window?

[/quote]

Not at this stage, no. Funnily enough, the totally ancient DOS version of the program has this ability, but it never made it into the Windows version (mostly because nobody seemed to want it back then).

Part of the problem is that it's an "expensive" change - I'd have to go through the folder reparsing every message to extract this information (at the moment, I just display the contents of the index entry, which is very fast).

It may be possible to do something along these lines with the new folder formats in V5, though.

Cheers!

I have not received any sample message yet, but looking at the html tag you supplied above, I see the problem. The Url is dynamic. This means that the server creates the graphic when requested.  I decided a long time ago to do no cache'ing for these dynamic Urls, as I would then have to cope with cache and server versions becoming different. Dynamic Urls usually contain a question mark (?) indicating the submission of variable information to focus graphic content, but can also supply a Url with no filename.

As for alternatives, you can always right click on a message that is not displaying the way you like, and pass the html message to your favorite browser.

Might help.

1.    Use Help | About Pegasus Mail | Info and note your current HOME & NEW mail directory setup.  IIRC, yours should already be in UNC format like \\server\volume\pmail\mail\~8

2.    Install Pegasus Mail to c:\pmail on the laptop.

3.    Go to c:\pmail\programs and run pconfig.exe.  Change the Standalone Home and NEW mail directory spec to point at the current server mailbox location.  Save and exit.

Now the program is running locally and points at the remote location of the folders.   

You can also simply use IMAP4 from the local version of WinPMail on the laptop (my preference in fact) via your Mercury/32 setup so that the loss of connectivity with the mailbox directories will be further isolated.  Makes it better when the laptop goes on the road as well.

NOW I am completely off the hook!

could someone with in-depth knowledge jump in please for an explanation what is going on?

how

could ellie experience multiple running copies of pm without the -ms

switch and what is in effect the meaning of the -A swich since ellie

solved her problem (multiple instances of pm running) by removing it?

[/quote]

Well, why or how removing the -A switch could have solved Ellie's problem, is a puzzle for me as well. In NON-NOVELL-NETWARE mode the -A switch is ignored anyway. So it might have something to do with other options (or illegal characters) on the commandline. Deliberating on that would end up guessing... so I withhold.

Running multiple copies of Pegasus Mail is something that shouldn't be considered unless you know exactly what you do and NEVER run 2 instances on the same mailbox. Pegasus Mail is not designed for that. There are multiple ways to run more instances at the same time, either by setting an environment variable, using the Pegasus.ini file or (since version 4.x) using the -MS commandline option.

I am using PM 4.41.  I am on vacation and trying send mail using cox.net.  I csn recieve mail great but can't send any.  The error I get to that has something to do with smtp settings.  I need to reply to mail using Pegasus.  Is there anyone out there who can help? Thanks

 [/quote]

It's common practice nowedays that you can only send using the server from the location where you actually are logged into. Many ISP's do not allow using their mail server for sending. It might be that cox.net can be used, using any authentication method.

Is it possible that the message  (.CNM file) is being deleted by some other action in the background. I have seen where Pegasus has displayed a message in the list of newmail, but in the background (sometimes on the server) a process such as an antivirus program has detected some malware in that message and deleted or quarrentined it. Pegasus still displays that message in the list and attempts to delete it from the list fail.

But, it you close NewMail and re-open, the message is gone. 

 The other cause of messages that really are there, not being deleted is that somehow thet have been marked as read-only. When the message is highlighted, press F12 and check that the read-only field is not set. Remove the setting if necessary and continue...

Hi
This could be the problem. But what drivers can I take, but those from HP themself?
I have these printers: HP deskjet 1280 and HP PSC 1210
I really don't know if there are other drivers available.
[/quote]

 You can get drivers for these printers directly from HP.  To test is you are really having a printer problem though create a new printer set to print to a file and then use that as the default printer driver.  If things speed up then this is a printer driver problem.

Run pconfig.exe from the program directory and reset the HOME and NEW mail directory spec.  The path for the new mail directory should point at the locatin of the pmail.ini file; the home mail directory should pint at the PMM files.  They are probably the same.  With an old version it should look something like c:\pmail\mail and with a new version it should be c:\pmail\mail\admin or c:\pmail\mail\~8  Also since these were recovered from a CDROM make sure they are not marked as read-only.
