Print edition just arrived: February 17, 2004 issue, with "The E-Mail Mess" on the cover. The story is on p.76. Are you seeing any increase in the number of downloads? A request for the next beta, now that I've got your attention <smile>: could we turn QuickChecking on and off for each account, rath...

Somehow that last message got posted under the name "guest" instead of my login name. Apologies for any confusion.

Can't turn off rotating star under XP

Hello Renier,

Using 3.0.2 under XP on my laptop. Is there an option to prevent the star from spinning during checking? Under Win98 on my desktop, the star doesn't spin during checking and the screen is a lot calmer.

Thanks!

Hello Michael,

For totally free IMAP, try www.myrealbox.com (it's a demo site from Novell).

Best wishes,

Oh well, I guess I can hope - I know that much of the code in the IMAP plugin isn't yours. It just locked up again on my wife's machine when she previewed a message on an IMAP server - I almost wish there was a "disable preview" option available for some accounts. BTW, if you want a free IMAP accoun...

IMAP4 plug-in: lockup with preview

Hello again, Renier, 3.0 is a total marvel: ideal in every way, so much so that I probably waste time checking my mail just to watch the program at work. The only problem I've still got is with the IMAP4 plugin under Win98SE. Almost every time I preview an IMAP message, the program locks up with the...

Wait, now I can't reproduce the lockup-on-preview problem with a POP account - but it happens very often with IMAP. Does that help??

I still get a lockup on preview about half the time I use the preview feature, but if it can't be reporduced, then I guess there's no way to fix it! The symptom is that the Downlaoding progress bar gets between half and three-quarters of the way across, and then stops. The only thing that gets out i...

Sounds reasonable! Anyway, I suspect my Win98 system is getting to the point where I need to start over. A few other things are acting strangely too....

Lockups on preview

The last few releases have had a problem that I've seen on my Win98 setup and also, I think on my XP setup. Sometimes, when I Preview a message, the progress bar gets about three-quarters of the way across, and then stops - and the program stops responding. However, when I shut down and then restart...

Hi Renier, Test account is VERY helpful - perhaps it needs an "Explanation" button that would pop up an explanation of the output and tell you to send yourself a mail if there's nothing on the server. One request for a later beta: could you check the keyboard accelerators? On the Accounts tab: Alt-A...

It seems almost random: the icon does display normally on most Win98 startups, but on some startups, it simply doesn't appear on the tray (there's a blank space instead), until I right-click on the blank space, choose Quit, and restart PopTray.

Tray icon sometimes goes blank in Win98

Hello Renier, Here's a strange one that first appeared with beta 11: sometimes, on startup under Windows 98, the PopTray tray icon is blank - just a blank space on the tray, no star, no envelope, no lightning bolt. When I shut down PopTray and start it up again, the icon appears as usual. Did someth...

Yes - DelSpam works as advertised. The problem was user idiocy, not anything in the code. Someday there'll be a program that fixes user idiocy, but I don't think it's possible with current technology....!

My fault - I think the "spam" problem is my fault: I somehow never made a rule for SpamPal that would let PopTray mark as spam the messages that SpamPal had already marked as Spam - and I managed to get myself confused about this. The DelSpam option in PopTray probably works perfectly - I'll just wa...

Beta 9 doesn't remember sort order?

Hello Renier, Beta 9 is superb, as usual. Two minor issues: In one of my accounts, PopTray doesn't remember that I want to use "Date minus" sorting. Every time I restart my machine, the messages in that account are displayed as "Date plus". Also, Del Spam is still grayed out. Is there anything I can...

Del Spam button grayed out in beta 7.1

Hello Renier,

I realize there's already a thread about this and beta 6, but the Del Spam button is grayed out on beta 7, and shiFt-clicking Check doesn't bring it back. I'm running under Windows 98SE.

Thanks!

... but one of the very best things about PopTray is that it's by far the most keyboard-friendly mail checker in existence - nothing else even comes close!
