Saving email on disk ?

Post by Shub » Thu Feb 02, 2006 6:37 pm

Hello

I've got a question for you :)
I'm a long time user of Poptray 2.1 and I have to say that since I know this software I'm using it every day :)

Well, I'm looking for a specific option which doesn't exist in 2.1, and I'm wondering if it's necessary to update to the latest one or not.

What I'm looking for is to download/save emails as *.eml files into a specific directory. Does this option exists in 3.x version?

This is just to help paranoid people (like me) to get a message back that you accidentally deleted. You would have to manually clear out the PackRat directory from time-to-time.

Available on the Plug-ins page.
I'm not sure if you will need to upgrade to the new version or not, but I think you will.

I suggest installing the Plugin and see if it becomes available in your current version of PopTray on the OPTIONS TAB, PLUGINS.

If so, check the box and then SAVE OPTIONS, QUIT PopTray and RESTART for changes to take effect.

Hello and thank you for your answer :)

I've tested the plugin with poptray 3.1 (plugins seems not supported on 2.1) ;) and it works perfectly!

The only problem is that I can't chose the saving directory. Do you think it's possible to change that? I've tried to edit the PackRat.dpr file but it's the same result :(
Maybe PackRat.dpr file is the source file of PackRat.dll file?

The link to the source file for the Pack Rat Plugin is located on the page at the url below...

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... p_id=76783

or for a direct download after choosing your site click the link below...

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/popt ... p?download

Maybe, the developer, Renier can answer the question of changing the directory where the files are saved.

The PackRat plugin is very simple and doesn't have any config settings.
