Re: Fail to access my pop account - Bug 908

 I hate to say it, but it's a bug in your server. It doesn't advertise USER
in its AUTH reply which, according to the POP3 standard, means that it
doesn't support USER, and as it also doesn't include AUTH capability in its
reply (and doesn't support it, anyhow), there is no way to login to it.

 So formally Mahogany behaviour is 100% correct. Informally, it would, of
course, be more useful to be able to login to the server, even if it's
broken (and for what reasons could a server be *that* broken is really
beyond me...). The fix is trivial, but you'll need to wait until the next
Windows snapshot/release to be able to use it, unless you can build it
yourself. In the meanwhile, please complain to the server admins and tell
them to install something at least vaguely standard compliant instead of
this horror.

viewer

I prefer to use the plain text viewer whenever possible.
Sometimes it is not possible, because there the sender
sends HTML with no plain text version.  Would it be possible
to set a default viewer in Mahogany but to have the viewer
"switch" automagically if there is no plain text version of
the message?

Thanks,
Alan Isaac

A very good suggestion. Would be very nice to have.

replying with many initial recipients

If I reply to a message that has many recipients,
it takes a *long* time between pressing 'r' and
getting access to the composer.  It seems the time
is used to create a "To:" or "CC:" field for each
recipient.  This takes place even though I did not
use ctrl-g (i.e., I have only asked for the sender).

I consider this bad behavior.

Options?
i. Do this only for ctrl-g.  For a simple reply,
use only the sender and discard the rest.
At least as an option.
ii. leave everyone except the sender on a single
line.  (An [enter] on that line would then produce
the list currently produced, if wanted.)
iii. speed up whatever if slowing down the current
arrangement.

There are several reasons I would like (ii).  In addition to 
the speed increase (really needed), this would allow 
changing all the recipients (except the sender) to "CC:" 
from "To:" in one go: a big plus!

Thank you,
Alan Isaac

 I'm afraid I don't know if this code works at all. It wasn't done by me
but by another person who has mysteriously disappeared without any warning
nor leaving a contact address since then and so unfortunately I'm afraid
there is nobody who knows how -- and if -- this works at all.

 Sorry,
VZ

 Ctrl-Shift-S is already taken by "Send messages..." and, again, the only
real solution to this I see is to make menu bindings customizable. Luckily,
there is hope now as someone has written code to allow doing and it looks
very nice (http://wxcode.sourceforge.net/components/keybinder/index.html)
and I'd like to use it in M as soon as possible.

 Yes, this would be nice to have but I don't plan to do it -- simply not

 This would be the way to do it, yes, but after a quick look this is still
very much a work in progress and doesn't look like an easily pluggable
library (it's more of a tool which you could use for "open with..." from
M).

 Yes, indeed. I thought a lot about it but the problem is that this would
be very complicated to do generally, i.e. not supposing that we have just
the 3 viewers we have now but an unknown number of viewers with differing
capabilities. OTOH hard coding the behaviour for the current viewers is
certainly much simpler but just doesn't look like the right thing to do.

 So right now I don't know what to do but I'll try to still do something
about this tomorrow.

VZ
