Changes in PackRat

Post by dacosta11 » Tue Oct 31, 2006 4:19 pm

Hi.
I have made some changes to PackRat:
.- Default destination directory can be changed (Poptray.INI)
.- Added a friends list where you can set the ID of the people to save their e-mails to other locations.
ex:
Friends=pcpop;
pcpop=C:\Mails\Pop

When poptray catch a mail comming from PCPop (it gets this info from the mail's message-id), it save the mail in that folder.
The friends in list must be semi-colon separated and must be in lower case.

I think many people will find this useful.
There's some situations:
1.- no user friend interface to chenge things. must edit poptray.ini.
2.- all e-mails are always downloaded, but only saved in disk those who meet the criteria in poptray.ini - this happend because packrat needs the "retrieve body while checking".

If someone wants this release, please let me know.
If there is another way to download the mails that meet the criteria in the friends field of poptray, let me know.

Greetings,
DaCosta11

I guess you could use the whitelist in PopTray too.

If you are willing to share the source too, I can put it up on the plugins page in the place of the old PackRat. Just add your own name to the comments in the source, maybe.

glad am talking to you Renier.

my packrat saves the e-mail using the subject instead the message-id as initially does.
this is good, bescause let you know what the mail is all about.
As a FoxPro programmer, I develop some routines to handle properly the base64 and quoted-printable encode that came with some mails.
For me its difficult to translate to Delphi (am only using the compiler not the IDE). Can u help me?

BTW: how can i send you the packrat source and the compiled version?

How can I use de Whitelist to set the friends list that I define in poptray.ini to use in packrat?
the definition must be something like:
friends=pcdacosta11;renierpc;
pcdacosta11=c:\mails\dacosta11
renierpc=c:\mails\forum
this can be done in the whitelist or you have a different approach?

Instead of posting an email address on this forum,

I suggest sending the email address through PMs.

Hi DaCosta and Renier,

Could the executable version of PackRat that uses the subjects as filenames be placed in the Plugins section of the PopTray website please?

Thanks,
Ron
