I would be grateful if you considered purchasing one of my recipes
Key Lime Pie Recipe
and other mail client issues I've run into.
Some stuff for my future reference and maybe help
If you can't see attachments, but the paperclip
indicates one is present- Delete the state.pmj file. It be re-created automatically
next time Pmail starts. The window sizes and positions will be in a different
state, but they're easy to adjust again.
- Putting a -i <username> at the end of a shortcut will
automatically open the mail for that user. Do include the <>.
- When queued mail gets stuck and cannot be deleted, use explorer and delete the .pnx file. I have also encountered this when a .pmx file gets orphaned, which when deleted solved my stuck queue mail. You may have to create a queued mail item to help you identify the two files that make up a queued mail item. Another thing that can cause this is files that are 0 bytes. If you delete them, the problem may go away.
- To switch from Preview, 3-pane mode to "normal" mode where the
email content isn't shown, open the "Folders" item and click "List".
To show a 3-pane view, open "Folders" and click "Preview".
- Does new mail not appear in the New Mail folder? Are there are indications that new mail has arrived (horse flaps wings, sound is played, box pops up)? Do you have to close and reopen the New Mail folder to see the mail? Then I have a possible solution for you. Check to make sure you don't have any rules that move mail to the new mail folder. If you have a rule in the "Rules applied when folder is opened" section that is configured to move mail to the new mail folder, that mail will not appear until the folder is opened. So, if it's already open, new mail arriving won't appear until the folder is closed and reopened.
- Do you get frustrated that you cannot view HTML formatted E-mail? HTML formatted
E-mail is E-mail with embedded pictures that improve the view and functionality
of the message.
Keep in mind that their are slight risks associated with this. If you don't
trust the sender of a message, you shouldn't open it. Otherwise, I would not
worry too much about it. Every other E-mail program in existence automatically
displays these images.
Here's how to configure your Pegasus Mail to always display those images.
- On the toolbar click Tools
- Click Options
- Go to the Incoming Mail section
- Click on Message Reader
- Change the "Display remote-linked graphics in messages..." to Automatically if a
- Pegasus isn't working correctly as my default mail client to mailto: links - Import this reg file or simply go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command and manually edit the key so it reads as follows: "C:\Program Files\pmail\Programs\WSENDTO.EXE\" %1" You may have to change this string depending on where your Pmail executable is located.
- Symptom: Pegasus Mail does not start. A quick flash of the logo may be
seen, but the program does not load and no error is displayed. Cause: The file mailboxp.lck exists in the users mail folder. Deleting the
file solves the problem.
- Symptom: When sending a message with a 200k attachment the "Preparing Mail for Sending" message appears at the bottom and it takes quite a while to send. Meanwhile, task manager says Pegasus is "Not Responding". Large attachments are hopeless. Fix: Try a different outgoing mail server. I did and the problem went away.
If you can't get the password to stay remembered even though you've set that option.Hosting Outlook Express mail files on a server share- It is possible to do this by changing a registry setting. First find where Outlook is storing the mail on the local system, then search the registry for that path. You'll find an item call root something or other. Change that registry setting to point to the server where the mail files are kept. Keep in mind though that if the computer looses its mapping to the server share or the share stops being shared, Outlook will revert to its default file location and the mail will start going to the local system. This may not become obvious to the user and they will happily continue right along until some catastrophe happens only to find the mail wasn't getting backed up. Not Good. It is better to keep the mail on the local system, install Kirby Alarm, create a batch file that runs xcopy and copy the mail files to the server a few times per day. Or use any other backup program that works for you. NTbackup was great for this, especially for Outlook. Too bad Vista destroyed the built-in backup utility.
Are you getting "Unable to open your default email folder Could not open the item. Try again" - Then do this --> Remove the profile in Control Panel > Mail > Profiles
