Thanks!  That pointed me in the right direction!

Workspace/toolbars/customize/[shortcuts tab] looks like what I was trying to
find. When I have a chance to look around in those options, I'm sure I'll
find many of the useful shortcuts I've been looking for.

I've been using this great email client for so long (since v1.x), and my
usage has evolved in so many directions over time, I can sometimes lose
track of where to look when I want to get back to some options I haven't
used in a while.

Thanks again!  :)

That's the first place I looked, but there are only nine (9) listed.  In the

Is the compete list available somewhere for download/installation?

Hotkeys for expanding/collapsing threads?

2020-05-21 Thread Melissa Reese

Hello,

It's been a while, and I've forgotten many of the hotkey combinations I used
to use for various functions while reading mail and following discussion
threads.

Ever since clicking on "Help" sends us to a website instead of opening up
"in-program" help files, I've found "Help" much less helpful. There used to
be a very long list of key combinations for all sorts of functions, and I
can't find that list anywhere. Perhaps it still exists, but I'm just not
looking in the right places?

In any event, I'd at least appreciate being reminded of the hotkey
combinations for expanding and collapsing individual threads. Any help here,
and for finding the list of all other key combinations would be very much
appreciated.

Thanks!

Not sure it's helpful to note, but just for the record, I've not been
experiencing either of these issues with TB v9.x and Windows 10.

In the past (with older versions of TB and Windows), I've *only very
occasionally* seen the shutdown/task management issue, but haven't seen it
for a long time, and certainly not since using v9.x on a new computer
(moving to new computer is very recent).

I've also *never* seen the "starts with Windows" issue with any version of
TB and/or Windows (never selected that option either -- ever since TB v1.x).

I suppose the only potentially useful aspect of mentioning my past and
current experiences is that these issues don't seem to happen consistently,
and I have no idea why/why not.

Hello,

I'm having issues with time stamps being incorrect in some folders.
Sometimes it's in incoming folders (inbox and various sub-folders),
and sometimes it's in outgoing folders (sent and various
sub-folders).

I haven't gone through all of the hundreds of folders/sub-folders in
all accounts, but here's an example:

In my main account, I have "inbox" and "sent" folders for various
individuals.  I sent a few emails to one particular person today, and
in the "created" column, they're all listed as having been sent on 1
January, 1970.

I've seen anomalies such as this scattered all over, with some
incoming and sent messages even listed as having been created or
received in 1899!

The computer's time is set correctly.

Can anyone tell me why this happens?  And how to fix it?

Thanks!

That's what I thought.  I called my email server provider late last
night, and they were able to provide at least a partial solution for
the moment (restored email in that folder going back as far as 7
March, 2020 -- though I've been using this IMAP installation since
August, 2019).  I'm still waiting to hear about what happened to the

Next week, they'll be migrating me to what they say will be a better
version of IMAP-like protocol -- "Exchange"?  I guess I'll see what
happens moving forward.

Not gmail. Nor is it the account through which I'm sending this
message. It's on my own domain. It's a service I've had through
GoDaddy for many years now (POP3 until last August, when I decided to
give IMAP a try).

In any event, I'm happy to have the most recent emails restored, and
will see what happens in trying to recover the rest.  Thanks for your

I'm trying to do this right now, and have encountered a problem.  I

On the new computer, after installing TB, I come to the "Create New

"Restore from...".  That's when I pointed it to my freshly created TBK
file.  Instantly, it went into "Not responding" mode, with the little

Am I supposed to somehow get past this "Create new account" box and
actually open up TB without having created a "new account", *then* use
the "restore" option to point to the TBK file?

I did run the maintenance option before creating the TBK file.

Some very specific help would be appreciated here.  Thanks!

I'm using Windows 10.  Do I accomplish this via Windows Explorer?  Or

Also, I'm noticing something peculiar with checking messages via the

The "Connection Centre" doesn't pop up on-screen automatically as it
does when I check for new mail in my POP accounts, but apparently, it
does open (have to click on it to show on-screen). However, it says
it's in "IDLE mode", and I have to "abort all" and manually close the

nothing.

IMAP -- for dummies, please

2019-08-26 Thread Melissa Reese
Hello fellow Batters,

It's been a while since I've had to ask a question here, but now it
seems I'm going to be switching to IMAP after using POP3 forever.

I've been trying to set up my primary email account (not the one used
for this email list), but have been so far unsuccessful.

When I look at my settings after filling in all the supposed IMAP
stuff, it still says "Protocol: POP3". When I click on "Change", I'm
only presented with two options: "POP3" or "Exchange". I'm currently
using TB version 7.x.

When talking to the tech person at my email server provider, he said
"Don't use "Exchange".

Could someone please give me--or point to--all the proper settings I
need to get IMAP working in my TB? With thousands of messages in the
many folders of the account in question, I certainly don't want to
have to start a whole new account/folder and potentially lose all my
messages, which I refer to often when looking for something.

So far, the closest I've gotten is to "TLS handshake complete" -- then
nothing. No incoming email, even though I know there should be
incoming messages.

I would need the proper settings for the "Authentication" options as
well -- for both sending and receiving.

Thanks!

Can I set up an IMAP account for a gmail address?

2017-03-05 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

I've always used pop3 for my accounts, but I have one new account that
would be more convenient if I could set it up via the IMAP protocol.

I tried to set up the account as IMAP, but the incoming authorization
(according to gmail) seems to want "SSL", which is not listed in the
available authorization options for incoming mail.  Do I need a v7.x
Bat to get that option?  Or will this v6.x version work as well?
Because...

I'm still using a v6.x Bat on this computer. My main computer, which
has v7.x installed, isn't working properly at the moment, so I've been
using this other computer for a few months. As far as I know, I
purchased two different licenses for the two computers, and I don't
think I can "upgrade" this Bat without purchasing a new license.

I'm wondering - since the Bat with the newer license is on a
misbehaving computer at the moment, could I somehow use that license
to upgrade this instance of Bat?

In any event, I'd like to know if there's a way to set up this new
gmail account as IMAP on this machine with Bat v6.x.

Thanks!

Depends on where you are, who you know, how much patience you have, or
how lucky you can be.  Here in the US, even the full retail price
wouldn't come close to 200€ ($200 USD, at most).

My main laptop came with Windows 7 installed, but my two new (used,
but new to me) little netbooks needed new OSs after I installed new
hard drives in them. I got a legitimate copy of Windows 7 for $45 USD
(unused, on Craigslist - someone got it as a gift, but didn't need
it). There was even someone (a computer tech) selling a System
Builder DVD for the same price (these contain all versions of Windows
7, both 32 and 64 bit - with pre-programmed license activation) for
the same price. Not being an official system builder myself, I did
feel a bit awkward about that, so I just went with the plain Jane
copy of Home Premium. Good enough for my purposes.

Microsoft still has to support Windows 7 for several years to come,
and since I've had a really good experience with this version, I see
no point in messing about with a pre-SP1 Windows 8.

To each our own. :)

 I do a bit of manual folder management while reading email, which

 I don't need to be told just how much is released every time I

 I've looked all over the preferences, and can't seem to find a way
 to disable this annoying feature.

The solution to my problem was this:

In Account Properties | Mail management | Deletion, there's this
option:

Compact emptied folders automatically

With this option, selected on this level (account level, as opposed to
individual folder level), every time I would right-click on a folder
and select empty, it would also compact the folder, giving me the
bytes saved message.

I've reset my account options to what I prefer -- to just compact
everything upon program exit. All is well again, and I've now restored
v5.2.2 on my main computer.

Sometimes, it just takes a while to figure out precisely what type of

Thank you - that's interesting! :)

 Someone else chimed in that instead of installing the program to the
 Program Files folder to install it to another folder then the
 built-in restrictions on writing to the Program Files folder would
 not apply.

Here's my actual agenda in this regard...

During initial installation, I just wanted an easy place (easy for me
to remember/find) to temporarily store the Mail folder, so that once
everything was up and running as I wanted, I would then take that
folder out and put it into an encrypted TrueCrypt volume - in an
undisclosed location (sort of like a vice-president ;)).

Thanks again - I appreciate the information!

I realize it's in bad form to reply to myself, and I apologize for
this, but since no one else replied to this message, someone had to do
it! ;)

Just wanted to offer a little update...

Though I'm still waiting for my new OS software to be delivered
(thought it would arrive last week, but it looks like it'll be Monday
instead), I did decide to at least give this Bat migration a good
test. I'm happy to say that while the backup/restore process wasn't
perfect in every way, it was mostly painless, and now I have a
perfectly working Bat on this new machine.

During my first attempt at fresh installation and restoration from
backup, I ran into a problem that still seems a bit peculiar to me,
but I got around it for the moment: it kept claiming to be unable to
create a Mail folder within the main Bat program folder.  At this
point, the installation would abort.  I finally tried one of the other
options, and that allowed the installation to continue.  Then...

I have several current accounts, along with many folders of [much]
older accounts just used as archives at this point. When I chose
select all (all folders/sub-folders), clicking next would bring me
to a not responding error, and again, the installation would abort.
I tried again (after removing the newly created RIT folder in the
registry), and same problem.  So then...

I cleared the registry again, and started another fresh install. This
time, I only selected the two most essential current accounts for
restoration, and finally, everything went smoothly. Once I got that
going, I decided to recreate the two other active accounts one-by-one
from scratch (didn't really need to keep those particular account
archives anyway). Now everything is up and running, and working very
well! :)

I'm still wondering why the new installation had trouble creating a
Mail folder within the main program folder, but this is something I
can investigate at my leisure.

Thanks again to those who offered their help in the other thread.

Migrating to a new computer - a few questions...

2011-11-09 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

Tonight, I'll be migrating from this old Win XP (32 bit) desktop
computer to a new Win 7 (64 bit) laptop. In order to make this as
painless as possible, I hope I can get a few questions answered before
I leap...

I've never yet used the restore from backup function in the Bat, so
this will be a new experience for me. As I try to understand it,
here's what I'm planning on doing...

1. Install a fresh copy of Bat (v4.2.44.2) on the new machine, and
input my registration code.

2. Restore from saved copy of backup (will have this saved on an
external drive)

3. Replace default Mail folder with copy of current Mail folder
(it's nearly 2 GB)

4. Install a new copy of TrueCrypt, move Mail folder into new
TrueCrypt volume in a new location, then set appropriate new Mail
file location within Bat preferences.

I'm hoping this process will yield a perfectly functional clone of
my current Bat setup.

Does all this seem reasonable, so far?

Are there any specific issues/problems I should be aware of in moving
my Bat installation from this Win XP machine to my new Win 7 machine?

Then...

I've been using K9 SPAM filtering for many years now.  Will this older
program still work on a Win 7 64 bit machine?

Thanks for any and all comments, recommendations, etc. that you might
be able to offer!

specifically refrain from using the term upgrading).

Filtering and its associated options has become a true pain, where
before it was very powerful, and everything worked as expected. System
resource usage also seems to become more cumbersome as each new

they just stopped responding at all. No solutions.

I'll keep using TB!, as I do still like it more than most other email

Also, very unfortunately, I'm much more reluctant to recommend TB! to
new users (just not reliable enough anymore). There was a time when I
sent all sorts of new customers to Ritlabs. That's just not the case

 that address (and there could be multiple address book entries for
 one address, so check them all).

Perhaps I should start a new, more specific thread for this, but I
guess it's also a reply template issue...

A little while ago, I complained of select text to quote/F4

instead.  I think I've narrowed it down to this:

I receive a PGP/MIME encrypted message.  If I perform the select text
to quote/F4 procedure on any part of this (before decryption)...

This is a PGP encrypted message. Click the security button to
decrypt/verify it

...the selection and quoted text works as expected.  However, if I
then decrypt the message, and the decrypted message is now in its own
tab, the select text to quote/F4 method does not work at all, and
the entire message is quoted in the reply.

Something is wrong with this reply quotation handling.  I consider
this a bug.

2010-06-29 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

I'm not having a very good time with this new version of TB!  It could
just be that I haven't yet figured out some basic changes; or, it's
simply not working as it should.  I hope someone can assure me that
it's the former, and steer me in the right direction...

1) After an unsatisfactory support ticket experience, I'm still unable
to get a simple auto-response filter to work. The ticket was abruptly
closed...without a solution.

2) Selecting text in a message I wish to reply to, and hitting the F4
key no longer creates a reply message with just the selected text
quoted. Instead, the entire message is quoted. I tried finding a macro
that might help in a reply template, but so far, no satisfaction.

3) Where did the Edit Shortcuts option go? The Help file still
insists that it can be found at View/Edit Shortcuts, but it's not
there, and I can't seem to find it anywhere else.

While this new version looks somewhat polished, it's not working
very well for me.  At this point, I'm beginning to expect the
unexpected, and not in a happy way.  Help!

TheBat.Net/Gmail issue (aka: continuing curiosity killed the cat mode)

2010-06-21 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

Out of curiosity, I decided to try a @thebat.net (Gmail) account.
Then I ran into an issue that I think needs solving...

Checking and sending email both work, but first, I have to deal with
these Unknown CA Certificate messages:

http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab360/qajaq/TBUDL/TBNET-GmailPOPCertError.jpg

http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab360/qajaq/TBUDL/TBNET-GmailSMTPCertError.jpg

Is there a specific certificate I can download and install that will
solve the problem? Obviously, having to click OK on these dialog
boxes every time I wish to send or receive email is a major buzzkill.
Indeed, it makes the email account pretty useless.

 There are two different issues here: the fact that auto-reply is not 
 sent immediately and the fact that no reply at all is generated.

One more issue to confuse matters...

After several hours (seems quite random), some replies were generated
and sent (a small batch at a time). Still not as many messages as the
test attempts, but they just seemed to appear and send themselves
whenever they felt like it; many hours later.

 Let's get to the second one first. Are you sure that the filter was 
 'tested' and 'not triggered'? You can see this in the statistics tab of
 the filter and in the log.

Yes, I've been watching the statistics tab. Now, with many more tests
(with two different filters), I have a 20% and 3.7% trigger rate
(the greater the number of test attempts, the lower the trigger
rate), and the send rate is still far lower than the number of
messages just sitting in the outbox (triggered, but never sent).

 - If the filter was tested and not triggered, what are the conditions in
 the filter?

Here's an example of what I'm testing.  I start with a mailto link:

mailto:willkayakforf...@gmx.com?subject=test%20auto%20replyBody=Test%20auto%20reply

Then, to be as specific--and basic--as I can in the filter, here are
the conditions:

Subject is test auto reply
AND Text is test auto reply

Options:

This filter is active

Send generated messages: Immediately

 - Id the filter was not even tested, do you have any other Incoming
 filters that may have triggered first avoiding the test of the
 auto-responder? If so, do you have any of these filers NOT set to
 'continue processing with other filters' in the options tab?

I've checked all this, and even moved my two test filters to the top
of the incoming filter list. No better luck.

Auto-respond filter not working

Hi,

I've set up an auto-respond filter, but it's not working. Though I set
it to send the reply immediately, in five test attempts, it only
created the reply message once, and instead of sending it immediately
as specified in the filter, it just put a copy in the Outbox (and
never sent).

In the four other identical tests, nothing at all happened (no
reply message was even created).

I've just recently upgraded to v4 (from my trusty old v2.12), and
this is the first time I've attempted to use the auto-responder in
this version. Never had this problem in v2.

I've been away for a while, and I'm just getting back to setting up my

having problems with it, and decided to use a different account.  The
problem is that I built a large folder tree with both incoming and

possible, to simply move all these folders and their corresponding
filters to the new account.  Would this be possible?  Or must I build

I realize that at the very least I'll have to go into the filters and
change the email addresses, but if I can at least move all the folders
and the basic filters in one graceful movement that would be
wonderful.

 The pretty same setting I have here, although I keep both TB and

 surprised since I thought that you already practise similar

I usually do, but a few months ago, my PGP seemed to be acting a bit
peculiar, so I moved the mail folder to another location while I
sorted out the PGP problem. Naturally, I have no decent excuse for why
it took me so long to get back to it, so I'll offer a moderately lame

 NOW, A QUESTION:
 Is anyone here running more than one A/V product on their PCs?

 It has always been a no-no to do this but the threats out there and
 the coverage any one product may be able to protect against almost
 seem to demand it!

The one thing that's getting very little mention here is the concept
of careful practices above and beyond any particular choice of AV/AT
and other types of protective software. This involves a
multi-layered approach involving the careful selection of software
(email/news clients, browsers, etc.), safe configurations of said
software, and enough sense to know what not to click on, download,
etc. regardless of what any AV/AT software might or might not have to
say about it.

What the situation really demands is a bit of end user education,
and there's just no way around it; regardless of how many bits of
AV/AT software someone might want to run concurrently (or even having
only one running on-access and the other just being available for
on-demand scanning).

If someone is either very determined to infect their machine, or
simply clueless in the realm of prevention, even the best AV/AT
software can eventually let something slip by.

 I am considering running side by side nod32  AVG...

At best, that's useless overkill in my view (I also still have
questions as to AVG's overall quality). As far as *anti-virus* goes,
NOD32 alone should be enough (see again my comments above concerning
careful practices). Trojans are another issue, and even with a great
AV like NOD32, I still feel a little better running BOClean alongside
(these two do not conflict, as they work on different levels, and in
different ways).

 You really believe this, do you? Ever heard of the average Joe

Do you excuse a bad driver just because they might not know what a red

In the greater scheme of things, it really doesn't matter what one
chooses to believe.  What matters is learning how to use the tools we
choose to use.

It is unfortunate that we have to be so concerned with various
security and privacy issues, but since these tools (PCs with their OSs
and other software) are not entirely safe and/or secure *out of the
box* with regards to what might come in to them, invited or not, from
the Internet, I still *believe* that there's no real substitute for a
bit of end user education.

No amount of protective software will eliminate the necessity to learn
something that is necessary to learn. Since our lack of knowledge and
vigilance *can*, and obviously *does* affect others in negative ways,
being willing to learn a thing or two is not just for your own
benefit, but for the benefit of others as well. In that sense, it is
our *responsibility* to learn how to most effectively and safely use
these tools we insist upon using.

As far as Anthony's one particular comment above goes...

 If you don't open attachments,

...I have mixed feelings if a small caveat is not appended. While
*never opening any attachments* will indeed keep one relatively
safer than if one were to *never* open any attachment, if the
admonition to not open *any* attachment is taken too literally, the
usefulness of the Internet in this respect can be somewhat diminished
for the end user.

I send and receive attachments all the time, and it *can* be a very
convenient *and safe* way to obtain and share various types of files.
Again, the safe exchange of attached files of any sort depends upon
how much a person is willing to learn about the potential dangers of
opening certain types of files; whether they be attached to an email
or downloaded in some other way.

Hi Mica,

On Monday, March 07, 2005, at 10:09:46 AM PST, you wrote:

 That's my contribution: if you use some more complicated or
 unusual filtering rules -- be careful.

This is something that concerns me, as over that past few years, I've
implemented more complicated/convoluted filter rules than I can
count or even remember. All I know is that they're working! :-)  I
had to dig into my filters and make some adjustments when I moved from
v1 to v2, and I'm wondering if I'll have to do the same if I now move
on to v3?

 I myself am waiting to see what will happen before I decide to buy
 a copy of a v3 using *my* name. The main reason of mine was
 encryption on the fly, and I was already prepared to buy a Secure
 Bat but they entombed this form of the popular mammal, just in the
 moment when I pulled my wallet. Pity, since I do not need any
 additional features, as hardware tokens etcetera. Just a
 possibility to keep my mail in an encrypted form, while still using
 all the resources of a standard TB.

I share some of the same concerns here as well. I also don't use IMAP,
the HTML editor, Rich Text Viewer, or smileys, so I'm mainly
concerned with keeping my email management as stable and trouble free
as possible. So far, v2.12.00 has worked brilliantly for me, and I'm
just a bit wary of moving on to the next major version just because
it's there. I will at least try to learn more about the new filtering
system before I make up my mind.

Being a bit more conservative these days about using bleeding edge
software, and since TB! development seems to move at a pretty fast
pace in certain areas, I guess I'll continue to monitor v3.x from a
distance to see if anyone encounters any real show stopper problems,
or can demonstrate any real advantages that I just couldn't live
without. I'm all for supporting TB! development by upgrading, and I'm
sure that someday I will again upgrade, but I'm just so happy with how
my 2.x version is working for me now that I'm a little reluctant to
mess with it. :-)

My mother is still using v1.62r, and when v2 was released (and also
v3), I told her about it, but she's even more afraid than I am to try
something new and improved; especially while she's still coming to
grips with v1! (which, if you know how my mother gets along with
computers in general, is pretty impressive already!). :-)

Hi,

In the past, I was always eager to jump to the latest versions of
software as soon as they were released. Lately, I've become a bit more
conservative; especially when a version I'm currently using is stable
and working well for me. Now, finally, I'm thinking about TB! v3.

Is the current release version (non-beta) stable and fully functional?
Are there any known issues that I should be aware of?

Problems with GnupG and PGP integration

2005-03-02 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

I'm having problems with both GnuPG and PGP with regards to
integration with TB! The problems are more severe with GnuPG, so I'll
start with that.  Please note that I'm still using TB! v2.12.00.  I'm
using GnuPG v1.4.0, and PGP v8.1.

Here's what happens when I try to verify a simple inline clear
signature using the TB! integration with GnuPG:

gpg: conversion from `utf-8' to `CP0' not available

If I use the GPGtray HotKeys (GPGshell v3.32) to perform the
verification function on the same message, all is well, and GnuPG
shows no error.

I get the same error if I try to use any of the PGP/MIME options with
GnuPG as well.  Just after asking for my passphrase (for signing),
I'll get this error again:

gpg: conversion from `utf-8' to `CP0' not available

I can get no further than that.  So, for the moment, GnuPG integration
with TB! seems to be entirely useless to me.

Now, with PGP integration:

This works, in general. However, I'm having a problem getting it to
create a PGP/MIME encrypted message. PGP/MIME signing and verification
is no problem, but if I try to use the on-the-fly privacy options to
enable a PGP/MIME signed *and* encrypted message, it will only produce
an inline signed/encrypted message.

Now, if I instead use these macros in a template...

%usepgp%-
%pgpmime%-
%signcomplete%-
%encryptcomplete%-

...PGP/MIME works as expected, creating a fully PGP/MIME
signed/encrrypted message. So, why does this work using macros in a
template, but the very same options chosen on-the-fly in the message
editor creates inline instead of PGP/MIME messages?

Any ideas on both GnuPG and PGP problems will be appreciated.  Thanks!

response (14 February):

The current version (2.12.3) came out about a month ago. The only
thing that was changed from 2.12.2 was that a couple of websites had
trouble opening with the default settings. It didn't come as a
component update, but had to be downloaded completely. As this
affected very few people, we didn't mention it to everyone, as we will
be having a major program update within a couple of weeks. As this
will also have to be retrieved by downloading the entire program, we
felt the easiest way not mention the minor update, unless the user was
experiencing the connection problem.

As soon as this next update is available, you'll receive a pop-up
notifying you of it's release.

JJ Not so. You do not need the sender's key to read an encrypted

 Depends on how you encrypt it. If you encrypt a message using your
 own secret key, then people would use your public key to decrypt it.
 This is useful if you want to encrypt a message only to keep it from
 casual eyes.

No, that's not quite right.

A public key is never used to decrypt an encrypted message. Only the
holder of the private (secret) key and its corresponding passphrase
can decrypt a message encrypted to the corresponding public key.

There is a method of signing that is not clear signing, and it's
called ascii armoring. It *looks like* it's encrypted, but it's not.
In that case, anyone with PGP or GnuPG using the decrypt  verify
function will convert the message back to clear text at the same time
the signature is verified (providing that the public key of the signer
is present on the recipient's public keyring).

Again though, the only way to decrypt an *encrypted* message is with
one's own private key and passphrase, and the message must be
encrypted using the corresponding public key. A single message can
also be encrypted to several different public keys, so that each
holder of the corresponding private keys can decrypt it using their
own private key/passphrase.

To re-position a folder within the account's hierarchy, press and hold

Park column width mysteriously resizes itself

2005-01-15 Thread Melissa Reese
Hi,

I'm trying to help someone who is still using TB! v1.62r, and I
thought I'd run this by the real TB! experts before I get back to her
tomorrow.  This is the first time this person has noticed this
anomaly...

Apparently all by itself, the Park column of the message index
resizes itself periodically.  It becomes very wide, and has to be
resized to its original width. This only happens to the account's main
Inbox, and not to any of the user created folder views.

When she resizes it manually (click  drag), it stays that way for a

PGP/MIME signed, PGP/MIME signed and encrypted). Signing and

 Still working out some issues with TB! v2. Does v2 come with an

I know that the BayesIT plug-in works with TB!, but since I use
something else (K9 proxy), I'm not familiar with how BayesIT works.

With K9, there's a choice of having K9 put [Spam] in the subject line
of suspected email, or X-Text-Classification: spam added to the
headers. These can be used as filtering strings...so that messages
classified as spam can be placed in a spam folder (I use a single
common folder for spam from all my accounts).

Perhaps someday when I feel like messing around, I'll try the BayesIT
plug-in, but for now, I'm very happy with K9.

Firstly, since TB has built-in *integration* with PGP v8.x, there's no
need for a plug-in. :-)

Secondly, PGP v6.5.8 does not have some of the vulnerability fixes
that are included in v8.x, so unless there's a really good reason why
you can't use v8.x, it's usually best to use the latest version.

With a program like PGP, deciding whether or not to use the latest

That is peculiar, as it does work as expected here.

 Encrypting/signing/decryption all work.
 When I decrypt PGP wants to save to file.
 Real integration would be that it replaces the encrypted text with
 the plain text. Without loosing quotes/formatting etc.

As I just said above, PGP v8 integration does work as expected here.
I have no idea why it's asking you to save to file.  Are you trying
to use the PGP options from PGPtray when you're using TB!?  Or are
you actually using the integration?  There is a difference in how
these work.

 BTW as long as it works and handles modern ciphers it doesn't matter
 if it's PGP/OpenPGP/GPG/...

I use both PGP and GnuPG on my computer.  Let's get one thing sorted
out here.  *Both* PGP and GnuPG are based on the standard called
OpenPGP (and so is Hushmail...with Phil Zimmermann's help).
OpenPGP is not any sort of separate application beyond PGP and
GnuPG...it's merely the standard both are based upon.

I wrote:

MR With a program like PGP, deciding whether or not to use the latest

Then you replied:

 Tell that on alt.security.pgp :-)
 Many there will not agree with you.

And many others there will agree with me. :-) I haven't had much time
lately to visit alt.security.pgp, but I've been a regular there for
several years. There are indeed those who will continue to prefer the
old 2.x versions, and again, those who mistrust any version after Phil
Zimmermann left NAI (then NAI subsequently sold PGP to PGP
Corporation), but I feel differently about these issues; as do
several other experienced PGP/GnuPG users (including many regular
participants at alt.security.pgp).

Most end-users of PGP are not capable of evaluating the source code of
PGP, so they still have to trust someone...or at least trust the idea
that if the source code is available for peer review, someone is out
there pouring over it, and will let the rest of us know if/when they
find any problems (vulnerabilities, backdoors, etc.). The people who
formed the new PGP Corporation are actually the more trustworthy of
the former NAI employees who worked on PGP. I've corresponded over the
years with Phil Zimmermann and a few of the current PGP Corporation
people (while they were at NAI, and also after they formed PGP
Corporation) enough to feel I can trust in their intentions with
regards to PGP's trustworthiness.

For someone like myself, who couldn't tell the difference between a
backdoor and a bathtub if I were to look at the source code, I
need to find other ways to trust the code; and I feel I've done all
I can to assure myself that it's okay for me to use.

If we want to continue this aspect of the discussion, perhaps we
should move it to TBOT before the fish start flying. :-)

Allie's suggestion is, of course, the first essential setting to

Aside from these basic options and settings, I couldn't find any

Hi Peter,

 This should have been preview pane, sorry...

Um...don't you mean header pane (or header bar?) instead? I may be
confused here, but I've always considered the preview pane to be
just the window with the message in it, and that bar just above it
(between the message index/list and preview pane) with all the
selected header information in it to be the header pane or header
bar.

By the way...when I'm reading a list message, and use the Ctrl+F4
shortcut, the reply is addressed to the original sender - not to the
list - just as intended with Ctrl+F4.

However, on a list where I need to hard code the list address as the
default reply to in a folder template, Ctrl+F4 doesn't work to send
the reply to the original sender instead.  What I use in this case is
a quick template like this:

%TO=%TO=%OFROMNAME %OFROMADDR

Once I select the text I want to quote, then hit F4, I just type the
quick template's handle and the To address is changed from the hard
coded list address to the original sender's address.  This is slightly
clumsy, but it works.  I guess I could try to be a little less lazy
and figure out a new method for this that would just require a single
keyboard combination after selecting the text to quote. :-)

 Why should I use PGP ?

I just noticed your message sitting here unanswered for a few days, so
perhaps I can mention a few reasons why you might want to use PGP
(though PGP integration is a part of The Bat!, if we go too much into
purely PGP issues, perhaps we could move this to the OT list).
Anyway...here are a few reasons you might want to use PGP...

1) To protect your privacy via email, and in doing so, also protect
   the privacy of your correspondents. Basically, encryption allows
   you to put your email in an envelope rather than on a postcard.

   It's kind of amazing what people will put on an email postcard,
   though they wouldn't dare put such things on a postcard to send
   through the post.

2) To give your email and document recipients a way to verify if
   messages, documents, and other files are really from you, and to
   also let them know if your signed documents or files have been
   altered or not since you signed them.

3) To use PGPdisk, or some other disk volume encryption tool to
   protect various local databases, programs, etc.

PGP, GnuPG, and various disk volume encryption tools can go a long way
in protecting our privacy in a digital environment that is, by
default, extremely insecure.

In addition to what others here have said about this, I do find it
ironic that you're complaining about TB!'s handling of URLs when your
own email client has wrapped the long URL you posted here. In order to
even use it at all, I had to paste it into the text editor and
reconstruct it into one line.

Then, there are email clients that can't properly handle mailtos and
other URLs that use the proper %20 space character. The RFCs are
attempts at standardization, so that a wide variety of software and
OSs can deal with common aspects of formatting when communicating with
each other. It seems therefore perfectly reasonable to me for software
developers to try and adhere to the RFCs when they write their code.

Perhaps developers like MS create lenient software because their own
software so routinely breaks the accepted standards in the first
place? Even if this seems convenient in some ways for users of their
software, I'm not so sure it's the best approach to these issues.

There is a sender address with [EMAIL PROTECTED] domain, and it

I really don't like this sort of third party intervention that wants

especially useless if someone is already using an email client like
TB!, where there are plenty of ways to filter out unwanted email

And who knows?...perhaps a service like RiskFreeMail could have
its own sinister ulterior motives; collecting email addresses of those
who click here to visit the site and enter the code?  They may
indeed help *their users* in some way, but how do I know that my email

have time at the moment to reply individually to each, this message
will have to serve as my thank you to all of you.  Thank you!

First, as a plain text person myself, I want to thank you for even
starting up the dreaded HTML editor at all in order to help me out. I
know how painful this can be.

Secondly...all your hyperlinks worked! However, I must include the
following caveat, though I'm not yet entirely sure if this is the only
thing that fixed it for me...

At the time I wrote my original query, I had just recently installed
TB! v2.10.03.  This was the version I was using while testing the HTML
editor and the hyperlink function. For an unrelated reason, between
that time and the time I tested the hyperlinks all of you sent to
me, I had rolled back my Bat to v2.10.01.

In subsequent testing of hyperlink creation/clicking in v2.10.01,
everything here seems to work as expected.  I can create hyperlinks in
the HTML editor, and when I send the test mail to myself, I can click
on them (single click), and they work as expected.

I may do a bit more testing between v2.10.01 and v2.10.03, just out of
masochistic curiosity, but for the moment, rolling back to the earlier
version of TB! seems to have addressed the problem I encountered
last night in my testing.

I'll pass this information on to my mom, and hopefully, in spite of
this working, she still won't be sending much of the HTML email
around! :-)

Thanks again for all your help!

thing).  She has run into a problem, and I'm trying to help her figure
it out...it has to do with the Hyperlink option in the HTML editor.

I've been doing a bit of testing in my own Bat, and I can't seem to
create a working link using the hyperlink button in the HTML editor.
Here's what I've been trying...

I click on the hyperlink button, type in the text that should be
visible, then type a URL in the space provided. When I close that
dialog box, the text shows up underlined in the message body. I send
the message to myself, and view it as HTML. When I move the mouse
pointer over the link, the little hand shows up as if it's a
clickable link, but when I click on it, nothing happens.

I've tried typing the URL in a couple of different ways:

http://www.blahblah.com/  and www.blahblah.com

Neither seems to work.

If I'm doing this incorrectly, can someone please show me the error of
my ways? Or, is there a known bug with the hyperlink option in the
HTML editor?

Thanks!

PS:  Sorry for helping someone to create HTML email, but it's my
mom, and I want her to be happy.  I'll repent later. :-)

No.  I actually did try it the way you described as well...first
typing the text in the message body, selecting it, then clicking on
the hyperlink button, and just putting the URL in the appropriate
space.  Even this technique didn't work for me.

Any other ideas?

That's very peculiar. I wonder if anyone would like to send me, via

hyperlink? Perhaps there's just something wrong with how my viewer is
handling them? I'll also try to send a message like this to my mom, to

 By the way, there is a site http://www.blahblah.com, as I found out!

Yes...it does look interesting.  When I get a chance later, I'll look

That said, I do seem to have stumbled upon the ultimate culprit (and I
do mean *stumbled*!), and if I'm remembering correctly, it may have
been one of the not entirely necessary processes that either my
nVidia graphics card or SB live 5.1 sound card installed, which
insisted on starting with Windows.

I used a program called Windows Startup Inspector to find the
process dependencies and disable the potentially offending
process(es).

In any event, rundll32.exe is no longer constantly activated, and
I'm no longer having problems with sluggish mouse syndrome whenever
TB! checks for new mail. :-)

Thanks everyone!

 This has *never* been a problem for me in the past, but recently, it
 has begun to happen. Whenever TB! is checking for new mail, while

 mouse is virtually uncontrollable.

First, thanks to everyone who tried to help! I *seem* to have isolated
the culprit, but I'm unsure about how I should deal with it...

The apparent culprit here is rundll32.exe (Run DLL as an APP), found
in the ...\Windows\system32 folder (WinXP Home).

When I go into EndItAll and close the rundll32.exe process, I no
longer notice the annoying mouse strain mentioned in my original
message (quoted above), regardless of CPU usage spikes as the
Connection Centre does its thing. In fact, while rundll32.exe is not
running, I haven't noticed any unhappy side effects (not yet, anyway).

However, since I haven't yet tested doing many different things while
rundll32.exe is shut down, I may have just not run into any obvious
problems yet. I do remember, while doing certain things, my firewall
(Kerio Personal Firewall) will pop up and ask me if I want to allow
Run DLL as an APP in order to proceed to the next step of some
process.

After Googling on rundll32.exe, it does seem that this process has
its fingers in several different areas of normal operations, so I'm
not sure if it's okay to look for a way to disable the process
permanently. If, however, disabling this process under normal
operating conditions is not a problem, could someone explain to me
just how I might go about disabling it at startup?

I've looked in the Control panel/administrative tools/services, and
haven't yet found it there (though I may just be missing something
obvious there, so I'll go back and look more carefully).

So...does anyone have suggestions with regards to this rundll32.exe
thingy?

Thanks!

I apologize for replying to myself, but here's a small update...

I have no idea why, but when I got to my computer this morning, I'm no
longer noticing the problem described above. While CPU usage during
email polling still jumps around (also sometimes spiking to 100%), I'm
not currently experiencing the sluggish mouse syndrome as I have the
past several days. As far as I know, I haven't done anything
differently.

Even though this problem has mysteriously disappeared (for the moment,
anyway), I'd still be interested in comments from anyone who has
experienced this anomaly, so that I might be able to avoid it in the
future.

Thanks!

This is interesting. I think the last fresh installation of my TB!

me up to my current v2.04.7. Perhaps I'll make a complete backup, then
un-install, then try a fresh install of v2.04.7, then restore

Before I try that, I would appreciate any comments or hints anyone

Connection Centre and CPU usage

2004-03-23 Thread Melissa Reese
-BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-
Hash: SHA1

Hi,

I know this subject has been addressed here in the past, but in
looking at old messages, I haven't yet found a solution that works for
me.  So...I'll try again...

This has *never* been a problem for me in the past, but recently, it
has begun to happen. Whenever TB! is checking for new mail, while CPU
usage does go up to 30% or so, it isn't until the very end of the
process that it spikes up to 100%, and for a few moments, my mouse is
virtually uncontrollable. Since I have several accounts, each polling
for new mail at various intervals, this recent anomaly has become
quite a bother as I'm trying to do other tasks while TB! is running.

I'm not running any anti-virus or anti-spam plug-ins (just allowing my
NOD32 to do its usual port 110 level scanning, which was never a
problem before).

Is this 100% CPU usage spike a known problem with v2.04.7? Or could
the cause be something else in my system?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

You can add a line space at the end of your template. You can check to
be sure it's the proper line space by doing Ctrl+A on your message,
and if the selected area shows a full selected area across the whole
screen at the level of your last line (instead of ending abruptly
after the last word in your message), then there will be a blank line
between the last line in your message and the beginning of the
signature.

There's no need to add an actual character on the line after your
actual message.

I usually PGP/MIME sign messages to this list, but I'll clear sign
this one.
