    The next beta (23) is currently being tested. If all goes well I'll make it public in a couple of days...

    Changes:
    - Reworked job priority queue to avoid situations where one has to wait for email contents for too long
    - Folder full sync jobs can now be done in steps (unlocks email reading while syncing)
    - Fixed email counts in the folder tree for IMAP
    - Reworked autoconfiguration for OAuth2 providers
    - Cut text (cmd+x) shortcut added to the email writer
    - Revamped transport security settings - now a switch between TLS, STARTTLS and opportunistic STARTTLS
    - When replying or forwarding mail, an appropriate flag on the source email is set
    - Fixed: quick folder synchornization would call Close on a fh twice if ChangeMode() failed
    - Fixed: Removing an account did not kill the entry from the settings list
    - Fixed: After an account was removed but not removed from the list, collecting properties for the non-existing account threw exceptions
    - Fixed: there was a rather nasty race condition in the main Session class
    - Fixed: after adding a message to a folder and synchronizing the folder, each time it was synchronized, the message would duplicate in the index

    I've added support for Yahoo OAuth2, but that is still pending until Oath enables access for Iris.

    It's working pretty good for me. One issue is that if I start a new message I can't type into the text entry window even if I click the mouse pointer inside it and the cursor is flashing. I have to press TAB multiple times to make the text entry window the active gadget before it will let me type a message.

    Hi,

    I'm afraid I cannot get this to work with my email at all. Have installed it onto a clean 3.10 system (as I'm new to MorphOS too) but it's not having any of it.


    I'm using the mail facilities offered by my web hosting company and have no problems using apps on iOS, Android, Mac and Windows to connect to it. I typed in a very detailed post about this issue last night on my MorphOS machine but the timed slow-down caught me out and by the time I hit 'post' it all went pear shaped...

    So I'm posting from memory now - basically it seemed to be failing on verifying the security certificate. Normally I have to select SSL/TLS port 993 for my IMAP server and use plain authentication . I was selecting TLS in Iris, and think I tried pretty much every type of authentication with no success. Clicking ignore or reject when the certificate failed had no effect either. I didn't mess with the oAuth thing as that seemed to be for specific providers.

    Thanks!

    @ stylon

    Thanks for your report. I am afraid you need to provide more details. Do you mind sharing the name of the web hosting company if it is a third party vendor? If you are running the mail server yourself, what software and which version do you use?

    Not a problem - the hosting company is https://www.unlimitedwebhosting.co.uk/. I don't really know what software they are using but I can manage the creation of email accounts in it using a Plesk control panel. The SSL certificate was created using the Let's Encrypt option that they also provide.

    Would it be possible for you to set up a temporary test account and sent the credentials to the developer of Iris either as a message here on MorphZone or via email?

    Attempts at describing what goes wrong might take up more time than simply allowing the developer to do a quick test run.

    Your web hosting company provides the following instructions:
    Instructions for how to set up email clients

    This seems pretty straight forward.

    @stylon

    Thanks for the bugreport. I need to check if the invalid certificate bypass is actually working right - haven't tried that in a while.

    Anyway, just as ASiegel has mentioned, a temporary test account would make it trivial for me to fix this. That'd also let me check why the certificate validation is failing.

    No problem, I'll have one final stab at it tonight in case I've overlooked something obvious and if it doesn't work I'll create an account and email the details to you to have a look at. Thanks.

    OK I hold my hands up - it was my fault. I had not realised I needed to use a different server name for SSL to work. Once I put that info in correctly it worked like a charm. Presumably back when I setup my other apps/programs they must have auto-configured the settings as I've never had to put that info in before.

    Anyway it is all good now and I'm pretty impressed with the app so far and look forward to seeing it grow.

    Thanks for the latest beta!

    I also want to report a bug. I am using Iris on its own screen with a maximized window. When i click on a mail the content appears on the ambient screen instead of the Iris Pubscreen.
