    Iris beta 25 is now available for download from tunkki.

    Changes:
    - Reduced the memory footprint when doing full folder synchronizations
    - Send email using aliases supported by the configured accounts
    - Yahoo! Mail now works with OAuth2
    - Added an X-Mailer field to outgoing messages
    - Fixed: viewing messages while updating existing messages in a folder would lead to bogus unread messages count displayed in the folder tree
    - Fixed: email contents window would appear on Ambient screen even if Iris was open on a public screen
    - Fixed: SMTP message store setting would revert back to default after applying settings

    What's the best way to install this without losing all my account details etc. from the previous release please?

    Can I just copy over the main Iris app or do some/all of the other files/folders need copying across too?

    Cheers.

    You can just copy everything over - the archive contains no files that'd kill your settings.

    Thank you. Just me being overly cautious ;-) I have updated successfully now.

    Really appreciate the update too. Glad to get see the back of the 'viewing a message while updating' bug. Means I will no longer have to sit patiently whilst it finishes updating all my folders before reading my messages! :-)

    Hi jaca,

    sometimes sending an email fails, with this msg:
    -[IrisSessionConcrete onException:](smtp://XXXXX@mail.kontent.com:25): Not connected to a service.

    now this msg appeared:
    -[IrisSessionConcrete onException:](smtp://XXXX@mail.kontent.com:25): ENOTCONN: not connected

    Could you maybe leave the "NewMail" window open, if sending failed?
    And a requester saying that sending the mail failed would be nice.

    Btw, no mails sent with Iris can be found in the "sent" folder, isn't it supported yet?

    Sending is going to be redesigned once the Outgoing folder is ready.

    As for messages not being sent: there is a setting for that in account settings. Just disable the Server stores... checkmark.

    If I disable the checkmark I get:

    Storing email in a remote folder...
    Failed storing email: Error while executing 'APPEND': bad response!

    I tried it again, and now it stored the email in the sent-folder!
    Seems so I had to restart Iris for this.

    Why does Iris always open a blank screen in the background, when opening a mail?
    Isis itself is running on Ambient and mails are also showed there...

    I could test it now also on my G5 at home - there no blank screen opens.....?!? On both machines (G5 and PB) is the same 3.10 installation.

    Hi.

    Has this been asked?

    I've configured an account, which is my own mail server running Dovecot.
    It uses a self-signed certificate.

    When I click "Next" on the "Add an Account" screen, a certificate error is shown.
    When I click "Ignore Errors" in the requester the screen hangs in this "Configuring your email..." screen endlessly.
    Clicking "Reject certificate" in this requester also hangs this screen endlessly.

    Clicking "Next" there does nothing.
    Clicking "Previous" brings me back to the "Add an Account" screen.

    Sorry for the relatively slow progress lately. Making a lot of changes behind the scenes - actually wrote a sampling profiler to figure out why full folder synchronization was eating up so much CPU... I can already promise a 30%+ performance boost.

    Iris does not support S/Mime nor PGP.

    Hmm, the X-Mailer field seems still missing. Sent some test mails...
    Version is "Iris 1.25 (01/05/2018)"

    Some Emails on my account show no content (neither html nor text). I could forward them if wanted for testing/debugging.

    You can save them to file and send as attachment. Or run Iris with trace parameter in command line and see what happens when you try to open them.

    Making slow but steady progress on offline support for IMAP. Local storage can now be enabled per account - that causes all emails to be cached locally. Emails removed from server are also automagically purged from local storage. Later on it'll be possible to move server-deleted messages into a local Archive folder and configure the local storage option on a per-folder basis.

    Once this is in place, the next step will be to handle email storage for POP3 - in this case, emails will be downloaded to local storage and removed from the server.

    Hi jacadcaps, a stupid question:
    Does 'Iris' re-sync an already synced postbox, if the account is used from another machine and altered?

    - Let's say, I've synced an account with 'Iris'.
    - Now I start another system and delete or send some mails.
    - Then I start 'Iris' again. Will the altered mails be re-synced correctly?

    Thanks.

    Yes, as long as both clients use IMAP.

    Beta 27 of the MorphOS' next email client - Iris - is available for download from tunkki.dk. The most notable changes include a 30%+ speed boost of the whole application and custom certificate handling.

    To update, simply extract the archive and copy files overwriting your existing installation - your settings and caches are safe in their separate directories.


    With beta27 released, I will now be focusing on a proper 'Outgoing' mail folder...

    This release really is a lot faster on my PowerBook, thanks for your efforts!

    But still no X-MAILER string it seems. :-(

    I'm pretty sure it's there. Did you check the email file?

    Yep. I sent the mail via Iris to my 2nd mail account and checked the mail via Sylpheed on my Linux box. Sylpheed has an option to show the complete source of an email, and there no X-MAILER string shows up.

    I have successfully used Iris now with Dreamhost's IMAP by following the instructions here:

    https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/215612887#Example_setup_using_a_secure_IMAP_connection

    However it is not the smoothest experience. Messages usually don't always appear in the reading pane when I click on them. I get plenty of timeouts in the log when trying to check for new messages by hitting 'synchronize all accounts.' But I am excited for the prospects. :)

    (I just tried to use the clipboard to copy a line from the Iris log window and paste into this OWB window but it doesn't seem that's implemented.)

    I would be happy to offer the author an email account on any of my Dreamhost-hosted domains, which he could use for testing. Let me know.

    Thanks!
