The thread is in Site Feedback. I moderated the set of messages he send into the Moderated Messages folder. I wrote back to him and got a reply. I also requested David H or Peter S delete the user id. I don't know how he got an Id.
I normally agree, but as both a moderator and contributor, that can be involved with both public and private messaging, I am willing to take the risk. I have some heavy spam protection and filtering code.
I will delete my posting after a few weeks, so it is not available .
[quote user="rgakins"]Sorry -- I meant vs. 4.73.[/quote]
Yes, 4.73 is the latest version. You will then want to update one or both of the HTML renderers, IERenderer and Bearhtml.
IERenderer is here: http://community.pmail.com/files/folders/community_add-ons_for_pegasus_mail/entry24145.aspx
Martin posted the url to Bearhtml earlier in this discussion.
FWIW, a couple of valuable pieces of information for us to begin helping troubleshoot your double-click problem is knowing which HTML renderer you are using and how Pegasus Mail is configured to invoke the brower. The configuration setting is in Tools > Options > Incoming mail > Hyperlinks. Start a new discussion if you need more info about the renderers or if you need help determining which one you are currently using.
[quote user="caisson"]In answer to the original question Pmail certainly has the capacity to create .mbx folders as can be seen from the add folders drop down box.[/quote]
This explains how they might have been created. Now to figure out why duplicates were created as Pegasus Mail mailboxes. Hierarch shows them both with the same folder name bu different internat names so I still intend to access the users mailbox and try to figure out what is showing up in the folder list. It has become difficult with folks maintining an IMAP connection while working from home.
A couple days ago I tried to install Pegasus Mail in my Linux Mint machine (under Wine). I copied my 4.73 installer package into a thumb drive I used to install it. It did very well installing Pegasus Mail to Wine's C: drive. Shortcuts were correctly created and my only intervention was to rename IERenderer.fff to IERenderer.fff_ to avoid its call. Everything worked so fine I'm astonished. In the forthcoming days I'll play with add-ons like the Hunspell dictionaries, SpamHalter, etc. I think I'm finally on my way out of Windows world.
I also had the invaluable assistance of Michael D. Setzer II, a long time Pegasus Mail on Linux user, to details I should be aware of though all went just fine all the way.
You would need to build the folder structure in Pegasus (for your POP3 session) and use filter rules to move messages to those folders, if your rules (or defaults) don't "Delete Mail On Server Once Downloaded" your IMAP side will be synced
What you "may" miss whilst in POP3 is the Spam/Junk folder at your ISP, I have to use IMAP once in a while because Yahoo (even with filtering turned off) still send good mail to a "Bulk" folder so I need to go in and "teach" that these mails are not Spam/Junk
Turns out I AM in multi-user mode and was easily able to create another user account. I created a couple batch files I will use to start up the separate instances once I work out the details of managing and synchronizing folders as per my other inquiry.
FWIW, I too am under quarantine for 14 days, but have other projects to work on, so I will put this one on hold until later.
No problem occurs if I address an email to one distribution list: all the recipients listed in that distribution list will receive their copy. But if I address an email to more than one distribution list, AND if the addresses of some recipients occur in more than one list, then the email is not delivered to any of the recipients. Instead, Pegasus shows me an error message with the word "pipelining" in it, as well as listing each in that error message each of the duplicated email addresses. Pegasus then places the email in the queue for re-sending.
To proceed I believe I have three options:
1. Log into my ISP's webmail page, and send the email from there. This involves copying and pasting all of the addresses in each distribution list and placing them in the BCC field on the webmail page. This is a tedious thing to have to do, but the email is sent without any problem.
2. Go to my laptop computer and use Thunderbird, which has a similar distribution list system to Pegasus's system, though not as good. Moving over to that computer for the purposes of a bulk mailing is tedious, and it means that my records in Pegasus Mail are not accurate (I have to make an artificial record of the email which I have sent). I also have to check my distribution lists inside Thunderbird to make sure they are up-to-date, as I do all of my work in Pegasus on my desktop computer. The laptop with Thunderbird is only for rare periods away from home.
3. Go into Pegasus Mail's distribution lists and remove some people's email addresses from some of the lists so that there is no duplication. But this messes up the lists, because some people do qualify for membership of more than one distribution list, and it's important for me to know that, for example, Distribution list A consists of 78 people, Distribution B consists of 34 members, and so on. And people who are duplicated in my Distribution lists do not mind receiving more than one copy of an email: they know they qualify for membership of more than one group, so receiving two or more copies of an email re-assures them that I still have them recorded as belonging to more than one classification.
This problem began for me about six months ago. Is it because of a change in Pegasus, is it because of a change at
Yahoo, or is something else responsible?
Is there a work-around? Is there something I can do within Pegasus so that I can maintain the integrity of my distribution lists, but not have emails rejected because some email addresses occur in more than one distribution list?
I just have tried the above solution at home and it works. Regarding one drive syncing interference with Pegasus Mail i haven't noticed problems yet but since I started using this configuration couple days ago there is still time for issues to show. I always leave Pegasus Mail when I'm leaving office/home-office, that is I never leave Pegasus Mail running on computer I do not use currently.
Only issue I have had was Pegasus Mail twice crashing at office without any obvious reason. However at home I haven't noticed such behavior (but there is important difference at office PMail is active for 7-8 hours in continuity, at home it is active intermittently when I read or send emails up to 1 hour max in continuity.
I agree with you, an option for activating the saving of embedded images and attachments in copy-to-self would be nice. In Germany, all business related e-mails have to be treated and saved as business letters with a legal retention period of 6 years. But if parts of the business conversations are always missing ...
The workaround with BCC is not very practical from my point of view, since I have to move them manually to the Copy-to-self folder as soon as they appear again in my inbox so that they don't automatically move in my different inboxes on closing Pmail. Maybe this could be solved by filters. But further, when moved, they are showing the FROM address (my own address) and not the addressie where it has been sent to.
