If I got you right you expect Pmail warns you you are offline when trying to access the Internet after turning this access offline, right? As I said, I look at the icon first and act accordingly. YMMV.

I think I didn't explain myself clearly. Pegasus Mail warns you when even while connected to the Web/LAN you can't establish a POP3, IMAP, SMTP or direct connection. My bad.

And yes, I'm sure your suggestion is welcome. Cheers.

Hi John,

    There is no vulnerability. Its Gmail trying to sell its two factor authentication as well as SPF, DMARC and DKIM . Almost no-one has implemented all these protocols and any, if not all users have experienced disabling problems. The solution is to turn off this new setup and go back to the previous standard international protocols.

You need to contact David Harris directly who can add you manually. Since I'm not at home I can't exactly tell you where to get his address from, but I think it's somewhere on the Help > About > Info screen in Pegasus Mail.

The reason for implementing it were serious issues (like crashes IIRC) when being enabled, otherwise it would never have been considered at all.

Hello,

   Just to let you know that Html V5 has made a number of formatting changes, including the Strike tag which is now deprecated, as well as the simple S tag. The recommended solution is to use CSS commands instead.  You can look up, in Google, the details of what html tags are dropped as well as put on end-of-life notice (deprecated).  I doubt this will affect us any time soon, as take up by the software vendors is slow until a majority of users insist on the changes.

I trust you have installed Pegasus Mail in C:\PMAIL and NOT c:\program files directory tree. The latter has read/write access set to Read Only, and that is only bypassed when software is installed.  Rules are normally set up in its NewMail directory (ie: c:\pmail\mail\admin).

Hi Jim,

[quote]When new mail is collected via POP3 it is deposited at the top of the list (as desired) but it is not sorted. If I click the Date/Time column heading twice (which is what I usually have to do, and what I'd like to avoid) the sorting is done correctly. I have not changed these settings; this is how they've always been.[/quote]

Times I was using POP3 have past long ago ... but if my memorization is correct, this was always the behaviour of Pegasus. When getting mails per POP3 they are put into the local NMF at time they arrive. Pegasus doesn't make a refresh on that special folder[/quote]

Yep, that's exactly right, and that's why I posted this in the suggestions forum. Sure, there's a workaround (double click on the Time/Date column header) but it seems like a reasonable feature to add.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Hi!

 

I'm running Pegasus Mail Version 4.72.572 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

 

I have my Pegasus set to do word-completion on the To: line.  I very frequently have two recipients whose username has the same beginning, e.g., johnny15@example.com and johnnyboy@whatsis.com.  When I first start typing "jo", Pegasus correctly completes "johnny15@example.com", and I continue by typing a comma.  When I then type "jo" again, Pegasus again suggests "johnny15@example.com", which is unlikely to be my second recipient.  How often would the sender want to put the same recipient's name twice in the To: line?  It would be better if Pegasus could ignore the recipient which I have just typed, and could suggest "johnnyboy@whatsis.com", the second on its list, instead.

 

Thanks.

C.

As it stands now, large folders are an issue both for filtering and the file size limit.  I'm sure v5 will address the size issue but selective folder filtering on the read status would be a nice addition provided checking the status results in significantly improved efficiency.

This is so trivial I'm embarrassed to even write about it.

 

If, when writing a message, one wants to include a hyperlink, the "URL to invoke" line is already set up with "http://" and as one click on a URL in all the browsers on all my devices now includes those characters, I get rather tired of always having to select and overwrite them. And invariably wonder how much trouble it would be to eliminate the characters in some future iteration.

Try 'tabbing' into that line and you should find the 'http://' already highlighted.  Then a Ctrl+v or Rt-click, Paste will overwrite the contents with your link.

I use K9 on my Z5 Compact smart phone.

The only thing I don't like about K9 is it is too easy to send an email to the trash folder, but there is no way to move messages back from the trash folder to your inbox, or any other folder.

Luckily, I don't let K9 delete emails from my server. I leave that up to Pegasus.

In the past (when I did admin a couple Exchange servers v2000-2010) we would disable POP/IMAP in order to block any non Outlook clients from using. Was a 'security' procedure (right...), client licensing (CAL) under Exchange and of course overhead running the protocol stacks.

Microsoft does like to lock users to their products

Along the same vein is the problem of false positives in header searches because the headers contains the text content of the message in a header added by a Spam detection product like SpamAssassin used by a domain host.  Below is an example:

X-Ham-Report: Spam detection software,
 running on the system "host215.hostmonster.com",
 has NOT identified this incoming email as spam.  The original message has
 been attached to this so you can view it or label similar future email.  If
 you have any questions,
 see root\@localhost for details.  Content preview:  AUCTION ENDS TODAY!!
 TIME IS TICKING!! GET YOUR BIDS IN!! DON'T MISS IT!! HOTTEST DEALS GOING ON
 NOW!!! GOING ONCE GOING TWICE SOLD!! ...

FYI,

You can establish a default folder layout and then apply it to other folders.  To do this, open a folder (not the new mail folder), configure the column widths to your liking, go to the Folder pull-down menu, select Default size and layout > Use this window's layout as default.  You can then apply that layout to other folders (when open) using Folder > Default size and layout > Apply default layout to this window.

Many thanks!  I am, frankly, not best pleased with the web-based displays of Yahoo, and was astonished to discover that AT&T relied on Yahoo for its email.

 As I own a domain, I can add a mail server to it its server at a nominal additional cost and use that as for the email transactions I have run from my former ISP and kept out of gmail and .  Then wave 'goodbye' to AT&T's email.  Then I can stick with Pegasus, which I have used for over 15 years.
