secure POP

Afaik, GMail only supports POP3 over SSL (aka secure POP) which is accessed on port 995. Poptray doesn't do secure POP by default, so maybe you could try installing the secure POP plugin or the GMail plugin. However, I don't use either plugin, so I can't vouch for them. Instead, I've been using Free...

Re: Regular Expression Question

This would be possible with a regex, specifically a Lookahead or Lookbehind assertion. However, these are quite advanced and would be near the limits of my regex skills. Plus I've never gotten spam as you described. So, perhaps you could post the actual spam headers (not log entry), and I'll take a ...

Re: checking a regex rule

Your regex appears to be correct. It could that there is no log entry simply because you did not have it marked as spam or deleted. I'd recommend mark as spam first for testing. In addition, you could also read the spam score with a regex instead of counting the asterisks. I had previously written a...

Hi bateman, a slight variation of the previous regex should do the trick: ^re:? ?\[\d{1,2}(\\|/)\d{1,2}\]: The (\\|/) section looks for both back-and-forward slashes. This should match the following: Re: [0/18]: Re:[0/18]: Re[11/20]: Re [23/1]: Re[11\20]: and all variants. However, you should test t...

Headers and spam scores

If you just need to detect the presence of the header, you can use the "Header" option under Area. This would parse thru all mail headers. The complete rule would be: Header -> Contains -> X-HE-Spam-Score But if you actually want to read the score and create rules based on it, you would need to use ...

Forget boolen, go regex

You're thinking of boolean operators, and the answer is yes. Poptray supports the AND, OR and NOT operators. The "All Rows" option is equivalent to an AND statement, while the "Any Row" option is equivalent to an OR statement. The "Not" checkbox is self-descriptive. But who needs boolean operators w...

It is by design

PopTray is not meant to be a full mail client, and by default will only download mail headers. It only has a "quick preview" function which does not display attachments. IMHO, attachments should not be processed in the interests of security and speed. Anyway, that is what your main mail client is fo...

Re: Del Spam tab function

No, PopTray doesn't have "learning" capabilities.

Hmm... +OK is a valid POP server response, but I dunno why you're getting the integer error message.

Got this off some FAQ. I'm guessing something else (possibly Outlook Express) is attempting to access your mail server at the same time: "This is the result of the POP3 design. According to the POP3 specification, only one client can access a maildrop at any given time. Once a client has been authen...

reading spam percentages from K9

I'm also using K9 in conjunction with PopTray. The rules you created can easily be summarised to single lines by using regular expressions. To match any email with spam percentage of 50.0% - 85.9%: \[Spam\]\[([567]\d|8[12345]) To match any email with spam percentage of 86.0% - 99.9%: \[Spam\]\[(8[67...

Re: beware "retrieve the message body"

Yeah, even for a few lines. But I think it's a mail server-specific feature. Probably doesn't apply for most other users.

Be careful with "retrieve the message body"

Not really a bug, but a gotcha. On my setup (Eudora, Win XP, PopTray 3.1), the "retrieve the message body" option causes all mail to be marked as read by Eudora (even new, unread mail). Not a big deal for me cos I sort mail by date, but it may cause some people to overlook their new mail. -Lemming

I don't see what SMTP settings have to do with your problem, authentication required or not. SMTP is for outgoing mail, whereas PopTray only handles POP mail (incoming mail). So the SMTP server settings don't affect PopTray. A couple of things you may want to try first: 1) Confirm that your POP serv...

Two-row regex

Sure, you could come up with a one-row regex. But in this case, I think you could live with a two-row regex rule to make things readable: Row 1 = 123\.123\.23[4-9]\.\d Row 2 = 123\.123\.24[0-5]\.\d The first row detects all IPs from 123.123.234.0 to 123.123.239.255 The second row detects all IPs fro...
