Re: The Bat! v9.2.1

Hi Stefan,

Reinstating the toolbar is reason for me to upgrade.. Thank you!

My partner is leery however, as version 7.0.0.56 runs on Linux
also. Would it be possible to revert from the new version if we
find out Linux is not working?

This happens to me periodically, and it seems to be related only

it happens, the accounts that are hanging are all of the same
one. The latest problem is occurring with the two I have on small

I am not on Win10 so the MsMpEng.exe is not the problem here.

Thank you for everything, Marck - even the trouts. Looking back,
I can't believe it's more than 20 years, While it doesn't feel

somewhere in the 1990s.TB! is as fresh as it ever was, and the

When I look around and see everyone doing mail (poorly) on their

Converting to new system

2019-08-26 Thread Maggie Meister
Hello Bats,

Converting to a new system seems to be in the air. 

I'm switching from laptops (Win 7, Linux, & MacBook) to a
desktop computer. with Win 7 Pro on C: and Linux Ubuntu on D.
There will be a data drive E to store data from the other two
drives.

I have two questions: a) Can The Bat! be configured to run on
the C and D drives with both using the same version? b) Can
they both use the same data drive E:?

IIRC I am running version 6 because it was the most stable
version going through Crossover for this Mac. My partner is
running version 7.0.56 on a Linux, so it seems I will be upgrading
to version 7.0.56 and the current Ubuntu version. Will this version
of The Bat! run on Win 7 Pro?

G> Ah... Now it is there! :-)



Thank you for bringing this question to the group. I have been
following this thread avidly since I have never understood the
PGP and related encryption methods and I have some questions and
an observation.

1. I largely use text and not html to communicate. Using GnuPG
seems to take up lots of space. Do I remember correctly that
proper email etiquette advocated no more than 6 lines in a sig,
or, is that just a piece of the past that just stuck in my
memory?
  
2. How will correspondents using smart phones manage this 
considering the screen size? 

3. For correspondents who don't use a dedicated email program
such as TheBat! handle this if they are using web mail? 

4. When replying without trimming in an email thread, this could
potentially take to not only scroll through, but to even find the
actual email amidst all the other security characters?

5. Are these questions also relevant to PGP or only GnuPG?

Isn't choosing VPN more effective w/o having to use the keys and
the added issue of having to convince other people to adopt this
system in order to communicate with me? These are the ones who 
say, why should I do this, I've got nothing to hide?

In the sorting of the account, I did not see where to paste the

be copied from 'beginFilter' and end with 'endFilter'? I have
never used a filter such as this, even though I have seen various
similar filters in the list over the years. Normally, my needs
are so simple that the macros one can choose for message
filtering are enough for my needs.

Thanks for your patience.

F4 not copying selected text in reply

2015-09-13 Thread Maggie Meister
Hello Bats,

Recently, I have encountered a situation where hitting the reply
does not include any of the text from the incoming mail. 

Possibly related: selecting specific text, then hitting the F4
key does not copy the selected text into the reply message. This
behavior happens regardless of server of the incoming mails. I
have two recent mails where this occurs. Is this behavior from my
end or something they have done?

I've still got the same ol' setup, and I don't do auto updates of 
anything. 

Also, after my last email to the list, I noticed that my question 
was posted twice. Am I missing something in preferences? Do you 
all see two posts, or is it only on my system?

Upgrading to v7.0.0.56 icon animation

2015-08-14 Thread Maggie Meister
Hello Bats,

My partner recently upgraded from 4.2 to the current version on a
Win 7 and noticed that the icon in the taskbar doesn't flap when 
mail is received. The Bat! program window icon flaps and the 
popup mini window has a flapping icon when hovering over the 
taskbar icon, but not the taskbar icon itself. I checked to see 
if the  Preferences|General|icon animation box was checked and it 
is. Do any of you know if this is Win7 behavior or is it 
something changed from TBat4?  We must have flapping!

BTW, a sigh of relief was heard when TheBat flawlessly brought
over all the old files to the 'new' machine. The old TB wasn't
even installed, only sitting in the downloads directory. Bringing
over the Thunderbird mails from the Linux machine however was
another story.

Let me see if I understand: if I want to see one folder in an

restore this more safely if this were done on a
different/old/spare machine where I wouldn't have to worry about
either losing messages, but setups, too.

I thought sanboxie might be able to do it on the same machine if
it were capable of holding a copy of TB! to which I could
restore, then just dump the whole thing later. With the registry
involved though shudder maybe the separate machine is the
better deal for me.
  
Sandboxie may be useful for something else though. Neat concept!

Address book and New Message Template

2008-01-24 Thread Maggie Meister
Hello Bats,

  I have a new message template in the address book for a couple with whom I 
correspond. They both have different email addresses.  In the first name line 
in the address book, I have Joe and Sue. The Display Name As is User Defined. 
The Display Name is Joe and Sue. 

The new message template says Dear Joe and Sue.

If I choose a new email from the New Message button in the address book when 
their name is highlighted, all is well and the new message reads: Dear Joe and 
Sue.  

If I create a message by calling a new message from the main screen and using 
their nickname (handle), the salutation says Dear Joe only.

How can I get the new message to read Dear Joe and Sue when using the nickname 
to call a new message?

Thanks for showing another point of view, Thomas. I couldn't

 Personally, I did not have the above problem. Going back from .07 or .08 to
 .03 solved them problem for me.

There was a small discussion with Marek a few months ago about this
MAPI problem, but it wasn't exactly as you described. I have had
problems with the MAPI interface with all programs from Esoteric
Technologies, and Rising Sun Solutions, as well as 40tude, where the
program freezes (window of program becomes blank, white screen). The
change with the last few betas of TB! added that the new email doesn't
even open. In 3.80.06, if you try to email a document from within Open
Office, the Microsoft product opens.

The fix mentioned in the TBBETA message you quoted talks about Outlook
which I don't have on my system, so I'm not sure how it could help me.
Thank you for trying, Mark. :-)

 When  you go into customize and select the Standard container on the

 say toolbar.

  Right, Stuart, it worked after I re-started. Thank you very much!

MAPI and white window - TB! not releasing control?

2004-08-20 Thread Maggie Meister
Hi Y'all,

A while back, I asked about a problem where some of my applications
freeze with white screens when I attempt to email from them - until
the email is sent. At that time I didn't get a response from anyone
here, so I'll try again. I've been in contact with the programmer of
one of the programs I use and have copied our interchange below.

MaggieIs the 'problem' on both sides? For instance, if there is
Maggiesomething small which can be tweaked for it to work from your side if
Maggiethey do such and such?

 Possibly. From my recollection of the problems you described, the
 main issue seems to be that when an application (Atlantis or
 anything else) sends an email to the Bat using the MAPI calls, the
 problem seems to be that the Bat does not return control to the
 calling application until the email has actually been sent by the
 user. This means that the calling application is locked up until
 then. However, other email programs (such as Eudora and Outlook)
 accept the email and return control to the calling application
 straight away. The user is then free to edit/send/cancel the email
 at their leisure whilst the calling application continues.

 You could try sending the above paragraph to the Bat guys to see if they
 have any comments on it.

Also, when using MAPI to send these mails, it is necessary - for each
email - to type in a password. Is there a setting in TB! which permits
the password to stick?

  Maggie
