    No worries... Thats one bad thing about releasing beta versions, when things change sometimes not everyone is up to date.

    I'm getting there :)

    Instead of adding an additional check each time new mail is retrieved, I thought about a button on the config screen that "Imports" pop messages. That import would pull all the messages for the first time and mark them as read/seen.

    I was also thinking about adding an option for "Sound an alert when new messages arrive". Or should I piggy back the sound with one of the other options? I personally would like the audible alert and not the visual alert (pop-up.)

    Thoughts?

    Thanks Steve, I appreciate the feedback!

    WileECoyote your very welcome!

    How about 1 button delete?
    Is it possible to show read and unread messages in a different color text?

    Update...

    I just uploaded version 0.6. Since there was yet another database change, please delete your old database before installing the 0.6 version. It has the following features...

    - Refactored the way Accounts were being handled (If you renamed a POP3 Account you would lose all messages.)
    - Refactored Config screen to allow a few more options.
    - Added checkbox to sound an alert when new messages arrive.
    - Added single key delete. The 'd' key will delete a message without prompting.
    - Added POP3 Mail import on config screen (To import pop3 messages with the status of read/seen.)

    I refactored a lot of code in this version. Try it out and post any issues with logs.

    I left the old versions in case there are serious issues with the 0.6 version...

    Wile E.

    I add an account, save the config, start MP, it's OK.
    I start again the Configurator, want to add another account and I notice that the new one overwrites the previously configured one :(
    When I add them one by one, it's OK.

    One more thing. I haven't noticed it before, but some POP3 messages won't download from the server. Every time the same messages. I can't see any common patterns in them. This problem occurs with 0.4 too. I can't remember clearly about 0.3 and I don't have it anymore. Any chanche you have it?

    EDIT: Found 0.3a. It downloads almost all messages, but there are some more still missing.

    Hi,

    First thank you for that plugin. It is really useful, has a lot of features, and the skins are really really good!
    There s only one thing bugging me which is the way you deal with unread messages.
    I use IMAP with Gmail. Every 15 minutes you count the number of unread messages and show an alert. The problem is that if i dont read that message i will have that popup every 15 minutes!
    I think the way to go would be to compare to the last time you check, if you have a different number of unread mails or if the unread messages are not the same, then show an alert, but it becomes very annoying to see the alert everytime for a mail which is not new, but just unread.

    What do you think?

    Hey VRM,
    Can you do me a favor and forward a few of your messages that dont download to my MSN account? I will take a look and see what the issue is...

    Yea, currently I am using a very simple algorythm to check for new messages. I will be improving that as time goes on, but there are only so many hours in the day :)

    Update...

    I just posted 0.6a with the following changes/fixes...

    - Fixed "Add New Account" bug reported by VRM
    - Fixed import bug reported by VRM (The difference from 0.3a was I changed the encoding and removed another check for apostrophies, I added the check back in.)
    - Fixed new message algorythm to only report New messages from previous check.

    Please report any bugs here and as always, please post logs with issues...

    Wile E.
