2005-06-13 Thread K. Shantanu
Hi,
I have around 2000 email addresses where I want to send notifications 
every week. Is there an easy way to do it through The Bat! instead of 
pasting the email addresses in the BCC: field?

Thanks,

large mailboxes

2005-02-02 Thread K. Shantanu
Hi,
A friend of mine has recently started using The Bat! and has over
50,000 messages in it (most imported from OE). The problem is that it
takes quite a while to close The Bat!. It shows Compressing folders
for more than a couple of mins.
Is there any way to get around this suitation?

Thanks,
Shantanu

 Yes.
 
 Account - Properties - Options - Remove v from Compress folders on
 exit.

Thanks all for the tip. I will indeed remove Compression and see for
speed difference.
Is there any chance with using the compression facility (even a remote
chance) that I might lose data in any case?

 It is actually the other way around, if you do not use it the change for file
 corruption increases.

Can someone tell why NOT compressing and purging the data increases
chances of data corruption.

Hi,
I am using The Bat! version 3 with an IMAP server. Now I want that whenever

 You need to make TB! use a server side 'Sent' folder. To do this, 
 go in the account properties and visit the 'Mail Management'

 Enable the 'Sent Mail' option and leave to default folder there

IMAP again: deletion

2004-12-05 Thread K. Shantanu
Hi,
I had 2 mails in my Inbox which I retrieved through The Bat!
using IMAP. I read them and then went to webmail to delete
them permanently. I assumed that The Bat! must have kept a
local copy on my disk, but when I clicked on those messages
in The Bat! they vanished. Is this normal? If no, how do I avoid it?

spam filtering

Hi,
I am trying the latest version of The Bat! profesional. I have a question
on spam mails. There are a quite a few spam mails I get daily. If I mark
them as Junk, will that ensure I don't get them in future? If possible,
I would like The Bat! to delete them without even downloading them.
Is it possible and if yes how do I go about it?

Thanks.

Well, on one account I get only spam and maybe real ham in 1000. I
selected all mails and marked them as junk (around 200 of them) in
last few hours.  I am using the bayesfilter 1.5.6

Then I created another account (this) and downloaded mails. I found
out that all the legal mails even ones from the The Bat! list today
were going into Junk mail folder. What is the reason of this?
What do I do now for it?

much. If I had used several To:/CC:/BCC: addresses like,
[EMAIL PROTECTED], [EMAIL PROTECTED],
[EMAIL PROTECTED], [EMAIL PROTECTED] etc, in Eudora when I started
typing sha it would give a pull-down list of all addresses from where I

 You have to create it under the INBOX folder. Courier-IMAP doesn't
 allow folders to be level with INBOX unless it is #shared, which the
 administrator has to setup.


How do I do that? I tried the same way except while creating a
folder I asked it to be created as sub-folder of INBOX
But I got an error now which says,
Could not create the mailbox named INBOX.

Any clues on these strange errors?

 Select the account, go to Account, Properties, Mail Management,
 check the Sent box, and in the drop down list, select the folder you
 want to use.


Thanks. But now the problem is that the mail is not been sent at

 where Accountname should be the name of the account you want to send

 Then, while writing the message just type A1 (with surrounding

 account from Options/Active account.

Whenever I type Al in account body just the email gets printed there in

Inshort, it acts like an abbrevation and not as macro.

 In the message window, go to options|Active Account.  If you do this
 before you have entered any of your own text into the message,
 the footer will change to the one associated with Account B, if there
 is one.

WOW! got it. It works that way.
 
 You could also do this with a QT, and associate it with a key
 combination, which would make it even easier.

Can you please explain this. I didn't get any of this at all.
Maybe a small example. What is QT?

 Customising header is possible only in versions above 2.0. If you have such
 version, you can add new header filed in Options | Preferences | Message
 Headers. Having defined new field, you can display it in editor window and
 insert there appropriate address.

Yes I have version above 2.0. I went into Options | Preferences |
Message Headers and added an header. A menu box opened where I had to
state 2 things viz,
- name which appears in editor box for that header - I put
  MFT
- rfc822 name where I put - Mail-Followup-To:

But this does not work. I cannot see this field when I compose a new
message. I tried putting just MFT for rfc822 field and then it worked,
but in the mail sent, the header was described as,
MFT: and not Mail-Followup-To: 

Can someone solve this?
