Don't forget to make it available @ the mirror sites too! :D

Man, the Balloon notification on important mails (rule) is awesome, but why does it dissappear after 20 seconds? I want it to stay :cry: so it is still there when I return from a meeting etc.

Otherwise the implementation rocks! I like it! :)

Hi Renier, hi all,

Hey hey, wonderful, you did it. The feature (pop up associated with rules) is very nice for me, thank you very much. Just 2 little problems :

1) Sometimes when the pop up window appears, during i'm using another program, it disappears very quickly. It is then visible in the taskbar, but not like a window. I'm not sure, but it seems to me that sometimes the pop up window doesn't pop up, but pop directly in the taskbar :-) Would it be possible to make the pop up window always appearing on top, and staying on top until we click the "ok" button (because if we click in another program - mail, news, ... the pop up go behind).

2) Poptray stay busy until i have clicked on the "Ok" button of the pop up window. Before i click, Poptray does'nt show the little icon in the taskbar with the number of mails, but a little lightning above the envelope.

Well, this is just my 2 cents to play my role of beta tester :-) I greatly appreciate your work and the respect that you have for all of us who are using your program.

Serge.

The italian mirror was updated.
Available version:
2.0.0
2.1.0beta4

I just deleted the 2.1.0beta2 version.

I'll start debugging asap.

Ciao,

ps Renier, isn't a good idea to upload the mirror before updating the website?

I'll see if the balloon can stay forever.

Thanks Gerepa, I haven't tested the dialog mode at all. Under Win2000 (and up) you get a balloon instead of the dialog.

I'll see what I can do.

I've updated the California mirror, but for the one in Italy I don't have access to upload myself. I'll just have to wait...

What do you think about using the disabled icon on the tabs?

I also prefer the balloon pop up and stays forever. That's very useful.

I think it should be a configuration.
ex: Balloon always stays on top or popups for 10 seconds.

Note: Don' t even try balloons on Win98! :D

I have learned that the "index out of bounds" or whatever the text is, is bothering quite a few local users. We all use the betas and not v2.0, so perhaps you could release a beta5 with just this problem fixed? :)

It is not very very very important, but it certainly would help us.

I would prefer a configurable balloon as well. At least when it comes to a rule action. Maybe it's also possible to implement in the balloon the senders or the mailaddress or something similar that it's obvious in the first place who has written.
