I tried v5 as well, but then went back after many weeks. At first, v5 seemed to work fine, but the longer I used it the more nuisances I discovered. For example: - At some point I needed to use TheBat without Internet connection (on a train). It's a pain, I can't remove Flags, can't save messages (since it tries to save them in the IMAP outbox on the server, which is not available), and so on. - I work a lot with virtual folders. Working inside these folders has become a pain, since they get constantly refreshed and messages disappear, see https://www.ritlabs.com/bt/view.php?id=8929 - I also use quick search quite often. It used to work well in v4, but now doesn't, especially if you use several quick searches one after another, see https://www.ritlabs.com/bt/view.php?id=8932 I would recommend to everyone to stay with v4 if you can live with its bugs and don't want to risk trying out new ones :-) -- Best regards, Carsten ________________________________________________ Current version is 4.2.42 | 'Using TBUDL' information: http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
