The advantage of Identities is most of the hard work (not that it is that hard) is only done once

I run 21 ID's across multiple ISP's, mail is filtered (AutoFilter) to a folder for that ID, any reply is sent from that ID (ID attached to folders), some times I "may" forget when starting a new mail to change to the correct ID, but that's user error (senior moments)

You can start Pegasus with the -ID switch, which sets the initial ID used

[quote user="battles"]I am thinking that there may be a flaw in Pegasus in that when there is no 'Default identity', the program will not go on to check any of the other identities.

I don't believe that is the case although I don't have any installations that don't have a default identity.  I don't use the default identity though, always using the -id command line option to open as the specified identity.  Mail checks work as configured.  Are you using the -id command line option?  If not, when you started Pegasus Mail were you immediately setting the identity that you wanted to work as?  My thinking is that Pegasus Mail didn't have any instructions to follow for downloading mail if an identity wasn't set.

Brian,

I am running v. 4,72572. It may be that the later version includes the updated DLL's. And actually, verizon no longer offers email service. But when they dropped it, they transferred all the accounts to AOL, allowing those who moved over to retain their verizon addresses. It is quite possible AOL changed something, but they made no announcement.

I supposed it would be 4.71 or 4.72. Version 4.73 introduce the most stable OpenSSL libraries, those I sent you. Maybe you should consider update to 4.73 that have many other improvements and a security fix.

I figured out the problem: somehow the window had become too high to fit in the Pegasus "window". The bottom pane was hidden.

I have been able to reduce its height. Add Attachment now shows.

Perhaps Covid is getting to me!

 Thank you for the great support  over so many years!

[quote user="PaulW"]Probably the only way you have of sending the email while preserving the headers is to forward it as an attachment (3rd option on the forward window).[/quote]

Yes, and even in such cases spam detection might block outgoing messages like my provider's does (unless you get it out within the time slot before getting black listed), e.g.. In such cases - if not resorting to a "cloud service" - the next thing to try would be sending a packed version like in a ZIP archive (what my provider recently suggested).

NB: I was forwarding spam for proper investigation ...

Many thanks to you both for quick and to the point answers.

I might need help with:

""Then proceed to your folder tree view, right click to that folder name, click "Folder Information"  ""

I'll let you know.

I have down loaded the latest IER version.

Dennis

[quote user="MajorAlex"]And the fact remains that when IER is not running, the link does work in Chrome. Am I still missing something here? And it seems I am the sole complainer about those redirects. [/quote]

I can't tell without having the orignal unprocessed HTML available. From the URL I can only tell that it contains blanks encoded as %20 which is most likely to cause issues. But without the actual message I can't tell whether there's something going wrong or not. If you don't mind further investigation you may forward this message to <beta-reports [@] pmail.gen.nz> without any editing or processing, the preferred way being as an attachment to another message, preferably with a subject line pointing to this forum thread so I can tell it apart from all the spam being sent to this account. If you need further assistance with forwarding please let me know. Don't post it here and don't forward to my account because it might get bocked by my ISP.

[quote user="Joerg"]

When composing an email or answering thereto, simply mark the text section you would like to color, choose "set text color" from the icon menu bar (located between the address/subject area of your mail window and your email text) and that's it. And of course, you could set different colors for consecutive replies.

[/quote]

 But I'd have to do that for every email? No automatic way to set them? My business has me doing maybe 500 emails a month. :-) 

Oh wait, it's not as complicated as I thought. Wonder if I can set that up with custom colors?

This is normal.  What we are trying to confirm is that STATE.PMJ is being updated when you close a folder after making a change to its sort order  I'm guessing that it is since the normal updating at open and close appears to be working.  

[/quote]

Sorry - wrote that around midnight and woke during the night thinking the same.
Yes, closing the folder does change the STATE.PMJ timestamp

OK. If I got it right the app you're using is that provided by Google itself (that of the M icon over an envelope). If so, it is just a shortcut to the Gmail web interface. Try clicking the menu button and pick All mail. Most likely you'll find your deleted messages archived in this folder. Of course this depends on your current settings.

[quote user="PaulW"]You can also use the group address format

List description:;

This a list description followed by a colon, and an empty list terminated by a semi-colon.

(See rfc 2822 and subsequent) [/quote]

This just worked for me using a three recipient test dlist.

Thanks Paul!

Not sure if this is relevant, but I had a very similar problem with AT&T, who, IIRC, was using Yahoo SMTP servers. This had worked okay for years, but then suddenly I was having to send and resend messages multiple times until they would actually go thru. This was a huge pain. At that time, I suspected that AT&T or Yahoo had cut back on their SMTP servers since most people were now doing webmail. That meant that I was now finding their reduced number of SMTP servers busy, and there was no chance that I was going to get AT&T/Yahoo to backtrack on their reduction.

My solution was to find an alternate SMTP server. There are places out there that offer this as a service. I looked around and found authsmtp.com. I have been using it for several years and it has worked flawlessly. I use their minimal subscription which I believe covers up to 1000 outgoing emails a month for a cost of US$32 per year. I believe I can register up to 10 sender email addresses within this plan.They want you to pay by the year, but they allow you to cancel and back out in the first month if you're not satisfied.

They also seem to take spam very seriously, so I don't think I'm supporting a spam farm.

Since my POP server is also not AT&T or Yahoo, this now means that I'm not tied to them in any way, so I'm free to change ISPs without fear of having to change email addresses or anything else. I've used this while traveling around the US, no problems. I assume it would work equally well, anywhere in the world that had good internet access.

I have no connection to authsmtp other than as a satisfied customer.
