Mark Menu Items Grayed Out

Post by Lawren5 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 6:22 pm

Most of the Mark menu items are grayed out so I cannot mark an email as Read or Unread. Only the Spam ones are working.
Is this a bug?

You haven't provided much info beyond what you are experiencing so there is nothing to base a suggestion on...

What program and program version are you talking about. What version of Windows are you running it on. What type of email server are you checking ( POP3, IMAP ).

Moved your topic/thread to the proper forum area for PoptrayU topics/questions... Poptray ( the forum location you posted in ) is no longer supported since it quit being developed.


Marking messages is not supported with POP3 accounts, it is only a feature that IMAP accounts have.

Thanks, I guess I need to use IMAP.
What area did you relocate this post to? I can't find it anywhere else other than where I originally posted it.

PoptrayU ( as is/was Poptray ) is nothing more then email notifier that you can also read emails with and setup rules for certain things. It isn't a full email program so using it with POP3 or IMAP really makes no difference since you still need whatever you use to read emails with.

It's located in the obvious place where it belongs if you scroll down a bit ... Board index-> PopTrayU-> General Discussion ... the other location only has a shadow copy that leads you to where I moved it too.

ok. What I am asking is how do you get that menu to come up when you have more than one message highlighted. I dont need that full menu I just need the mark unread thats in the top right
The "Mark" menu is a right click option menu... You can also customize the toolbar buttons to have various commands including the various "mark" commands but they only apply to IMAP accounts as stated earlier in this thread.
