I received this message today, completely unsolicited, from Keith Harris, a long-time user of Pegasus Mail.
-------------------- cut here --------------------
program fails sadly now big time.
email to a distribution list and also to the safe sender list but it still comes
up as junk mail.
longer a program anyone wants on their system.
tried to stay true to you but if this crap keeps on gettiing worse, as it is, I
will move away and no longer recommend you.
recommendations I personally made to you were never
includes NONE of my recommendations.
right sunshine or get lost.
I am very old-school, and it shocks me to think that *anyone* could send a message like this - it was like a physical blow.
Nonetheless, it brings home to me forcefully the fact that I may be simply flogging a dead horse. The last four years have been terribly difficult for me, doing dreary code modermization and surviving on almost no income, purely because I believed there were still users out there who valued my work and for whom it continued to provide benefits. But maybe I'm simply wasting everyone's time continuing work on Pegasus Mail? There are days when I really feel like I'm living in a total vacuum, and it's now nearly impossible for me to tell whether or not I'm actually doing anyone any good any more.
If you feel the time has come when I no longer serve a useful purpose, when my work no longer has enough worth to continue labouring on it, now is certainly the time to tell me - if I'm just prolonging everyone's misery, for Heaven's sake, let me know.
