[sylpheed:33921] SMTP auth problem

Hello,

   we've been using Sylpheed for a while with a (standard) SMTP server,
until recently... We switched to an Exchange server that only supports
GSSAPI and NTLM authentication methods for sending mails, too bad!

Is there any solution through some sort of SMTP proxy?
Is there any plan to support the NTLM auth method in the (near) future?

Francois.

Hi!
There is proxychain program which can help you to send mails trough external proxy or by means tor network.

I have no experience with this, but Exim (for example - I have no idea
about other MTAs) can apparently handle NTLM authentication on both the
client and server sides, so all you'd have to do is run an Exim
instance, configure it to do NTLM with the Exchange server, and then
point your Sylph(s) at the Exim instance.

This may help:

Bruce -

You wrote

What I am finding, when I go to Configuration-->Edit Accounts-->Account
Preferences, is _no_ option under Server Preferences other than POP3. The 
IMAP4 option has been blanked out. How, then, would I try and select that
option?

It may be.

A rule:
  "'From' contains ''" (empty entry)
is recognized as:
  "If 'From' header exists".

[sylpheed:33928] Two functions that does not work as expected

Hello everyone,

first of all thanks a lot for this great lightweight mail programme! I
recently changed from Evolution because I was looking for a smaller and
faster programme. I am using Sylpheed for a few weeks now and in general
it has always worked flawlessly. However I encountered that two
functions do not work as I would expect that they should work:

– Sylpheed does not go offline when the Internet gets disconnected.
  This is a problem because when the computer gets offline during
  looking for new mails on an IMAP account, Sylpheed freezes that means
  does not react any more. With POP accounts this is a bit less
  problematic because after about a minute it aborts displaying an
  error message (“connection failed” or the like). This “freezing
  problem” is a bit annoying if you want to use Sylpheed on a laptop
  that is connected to the Internet by wireless and you have configured
  the programme to look for new mails every quarter of an hour for
  example. If the Internet now gets disconnected e.g. because you go to
  a room where there is no wireless any more, Sylpheed will not react
  after trying to check the mails, so that you have to kill the process.

– The second function that does not work as I would expect is Sylpheeds
  tray icon function: You can configure Sylpheed that the minimizing
  function of your window manager does not minimize Sylpheed to the list
  with the running programmes in the task bar but to the notification
  area (also known as system tray). However it is not possible to
  configure Sylpheed that minimizing the programme works as usual (that
  means minimization to the window list in the task bar) and that
  clicking on the icon in the notification area will hide the window
  (kind of minimization to the icon in the notification area). This were

With the Win32 version (XP/SP3), I find clicking on the sys tray icon
does hide/open the program.  And if a compose window is open, as it is
as I write this, it toggles back and forth between the program and
compose windows.
