Pegasus Mail has two html rendering engines, IERenderer (default engine) and Bearhtml. IMHO there is very little advantage of Async over Sync, as email messages typically contain very few images (that are fetched at message opening time). Secondly, both IERenderer and Bearhtml operate cache'ing for images, so for second and subsequent opening of messages, there is no noticeable delay.
Finally regarding programming languages and code from Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer etc, none of these browsers are public-source available, as they are developed in Python and other weird languages and glued together with things like Visual C.
Firefox has only limited extension capability, Chrome currently has none, and Internet Explorer has a highly complex extension API (good luck with that !!).
On outbounded support for WinXP many Pegasus users are upgrading to Win7 or Win8. It's so easy with Pegasus because you may simply copy you mailbox directory. But there is a little problem, if they have configured special content viewers.
With WinXP in german there is a directory "c:\programme" (in english installed Windows "c:\programs" I think) and if they copy there Pegasus mailbox (including individual VIEWER.PM) to Win7 / 8, obviously there still is a "c:\programme" (or "c:\programs" in english versions) ... but it isn't. Since Win7 (or may be Vista - didn't have that) independant from installed language and shown directoryname the directory physicaly is called "c:\program files".
Problem with that: if the user want's to open a attachment with a VIEWER.PM migrated from WinXP, the configured content viewer is due to changed pathnames not available and Pegasus does ... nothing. I think, there should be an error message / popup pointing to the problem.
Although I did like the "Don't send" option with the Spell checker, the new Hunspell dictionaries are a major improvement over the older one. Not only does it offer multi-languages, the presentation and greater clarity of the new one make it worth-while. If the "Don't send" option cannot be added to this much-improved Spell-checker, I will count it a small price to pay for this greatly-appreciated update.
There are still a lot of folks using POP mail accounts, and one of the really useful features of Pegasus is its ability to view and delete mail on a mail server without having to download it. This feature could be useful for folks who might not want, or cannot use, Pegasus. Having a small utility that allowed one to view and delete mail on a mail server without installing the full Pegasus email program could be very popular, and folks might be very willing to pay a small fee ($10) to have it.
One such utility, free, is Magic Mail Monitor: http://mmm3.sourceforge.net/ Current release is a Beta dated October 12, 2007. The POP feature works well with all the email accounts I have. Since I don't have a mail account that requires SSLv3, I cannot verify if it works with it.
As a matter of interest, up until I don't know just when -- the rollout of PMail V3.x, perhaps - ? -- it was in fact possible to move an address book entry from one book to another, in one operation, at least under an OS prior to XP.
Holding down the ALT key while dragging & dropping moved the entry; same with the CTL key just copied the entry.
Why this function was deprecated I do not know. Perhaps the ALT key was being captured by another process, or perhaps too many errors resulted. Or perhaps it simply was a byproduct of other OS changes, without intention.
I miss it, myself. Now it takes two steps to do what formerly could be done in one.
I see that someone scaled Mt. Snowdon naked -- perhaps the political statement of the year. (Which isn't very old yet...)
How splendid that Mr. Harris is not just concerned but was moved to take steps against email snoops. I'd like to think of his actions as a small step forward toward the human Snowdon's elevation to at least Man of the Year.
I discovered this by checking the 11/13/13 Developer News Page. It's a good read as always. I recommend it.
And I was thus reminded to make my neglected 2013 donation.
I hope some of you -- all of you! will join me in that.
I only just started using it on Turkey day and it has grown on me mainly because the color schemes are "Heaven Worthy". Even the slight off color makes it look like lightning in the sky from Jesus Christ if I could be so humiliated to say so myself. It took a couple of hours it seems for the learning curve of setting up the mail-client, but it is worth it so far. You are probably surprised to see that someone had fun sending funny jokes to oneself. During the test some frustrations came up like some companies are very harsh on their requirements of proprietary information and matching criteria. If you do not fit the mold then your POP3 and SMTP service provider may not even allow you to access their system. That is what I have tried so do not dispair if you have all the correct settings yet connections are impossible. Just make sure you switch to a service provider that caters to your needs. Other than that little hickup, great job so far. I hope you continue on to be the best; In other words, "Heaven Worthy!"
When I try to find where a mail is, I get a folder as part of the search results. It would be much more useful if the folder was a path starting at the mailbox. The reason for this request is that my mail is stored in a tree. I have customers and suppliers, but some people may be in both under the same name. I also have many "Misc" and "zzz" folders for the odds and sods. If I get a folder of zzz there is not enough information to find the mail. However, if the folder result was "Company/Suppliers/zzz", the chances of finding the mail are very high.
Crazy subject and the command for unsubscribe is included two times.
Maybe you include a meanfull subject like "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" (if not set in listheader - some mailservers want commands in subjectline) and remove the second command, because this will result in an error-message?
Yes indeed 6.54 is top notch - with later versions of Mailwasher all filters have to be recreated as the two are incompatible - bad development strategy,
I have been using Mailwasher for years and over time have built up a very effective list of filters to delete mail from open proxy servers - 99.9% of which is spam. Anyone wishing to download this filter list from me is very welcome to do so.
FYI Pegasus Mail V5 has a completely new Address Book facility (Contacts), which provides icons for most functions, including the Delete and Edit you would like to see. $64,000 question: When? Answer: Wait for an announcement hopefully this year.
May I suggest that you look at a General Ruleset, and use the "Age older than" rule with an Action set to Move the message to a seperate folder. Notice that the Age rule can be either a number of days old or older than a specific date. Attach the rule to the folder to be controlled.
This will require the setup of a series of folders with similar name to the originals (but not identical). I would suggest names such as "Arc-Mainfolder" so that you can see all your archive folders grouped together to monitor the archived capacity using Windows Explorer or one of the Pegasus Mail tools (ie PMRestArch)
Whether it is a "Live Sync" or a simple import/export of vCards (any version) doesn't really matter at present, because the current Pegasus Mail address book is very limited in the number of data items it can hold. As well there are structural differences which cannot be avoided. Even things like vCard sets will need some conversion. So until the finalized layout of the new version of Pegasus Mail is published, it will not be possible to program a conversion process.
For now there are a number of third party apps, that can exchange vCards with Google and maybe via Live Sync as you mentioned.
