    Hi, ok, but then when this error happens:

    Iris(imaps://christoph.poelzl@gmail.com@imap.gmail.com:993/IrisFolderCacheSynchronizeJob): ENOTCONN: not connected

    I can't read the emails anymore which are not local but on the server :-(

    I need to quit Iris and start again so that it works.

    Shouldn't be normal, no?

    Best regards

    Hi, I also noticed that the above seems to happens when I iconify Iris then I get this ENOTCONN: not connected but when I leave the window if Iris open, then I rather get this in the log:

    Iris(imaps://christoph.poelzl@rmsvideo.ch@server1.weboffice.ch:993/IrisFolderCacheSynchronizeJob): Socket is not connected.

    and also this:

    Iris(imaps://christoph.poelzl@rmsvideo.ch@server1.weboffice.ch:993/IrisFolderCacheSynchronizeJob): Operation timed out.


    Best regards

    Thank you very much for beta 44. Iris is a very good mail application and the new beta very nice. I really like the new button bar. Even though the buttons are self explaining I think tooltips could be nice there nevertheless.

    Regards

    Ah, with enhanced Display enabled it is working with VNC Server.
    With enhanced Display disabled there are Problems.

    Beta44 works very well! Got nothing to complain about and the button bar comes in very handy. ;-)

    @Tom

    Unfortunately I have not enough spare time to try and debug VNCServer.

    @all

    Thanks for all the kind words and reports - both of things working and not working. My MorphOS time is currently restricted to a few hours a week, so it will likely be a few more weeks before the next build is released...

    Hi Just tried your new beta 44 Iris. I did have a little issue where it setup fine the first time then I closed it and opened it again and all the windows where empty. I managed to get it working again by deleting the iris folder and also delete the iris entries in envarc and copy the iris folder back again and re do the account. One thing I would like in a future update is for the option to go straight to the inbox. keep up the good work im really starting to like Morphos now after many years of my powerbook sitting under my desk collecting dust.

    Please note that all Iris versions seem to suffer from a bug where Iris sends an empty email if you close an email reader view after the writer window was already opened. No eta for a fix just yet.

    Can Iris already be used by OpenURL?
    What would be the Settings for OpenURL?

    Iris beta 45 is now available.

    - Fixed the bug where Iris would send an email without contents if editing in html mode and some other html view was opened while editing
    - Tweaked the toolbar to avoid inflating the size of the folders column

    Iris sometimes 'hangs' at sending emails. Reading incoming email and check for new email still works then. The good thing is 'to be sent' emails remain in the 'Outgoing' folder when they can't be sent. After restarting Iris managed to send the two failed emails. Which is good for me, but bad for checking the logs what went wrong in the first place. ;-)

    Yes, well aware that the handling of connection issues is not ideal. It’ll improve in futue releases. Sending is done by contacting two servers (SMTP and IMAP) so if one connection gets stuck, the process will not complete.

    I am currently busy with other stuff (but it’s stuff that will make me more efficient while programming Iris), but my current Iris build has OWBSlave integrated into main binary, and stable. 2 more weeks!

    After giving this a lot of thought, I have decided to phase out POP3 support from Iris. This will happen in the next few versions. Due to time constraints, I’ll realistically be able to do either good POP3 support or things like calendar and contacts.

    This is your chance to protest before the removal happens.

    Dropping POP3 seems plausible to me. The other Amiga email clients handle POP3 quite well, not so IMAP. I vote for calendar & contacts.

    I vote for POP3 as I still do it the POP3 way (I prefer it locally) and YAM is okay, but I would welcome Iris as successor.
    Regarding a contact manager, I am working on my own (mailaddresses, web addresses, phone, addreses, birthdays, pictures, relation), hence no need, by me at least.

    Unfortunately support for Microsoft technologies is not planned. It is my understanding, however, that these days Microsoft provides IMAP support in Exchange servers so you should be able to use Iris via IMAP.

    I'd prefer to keep POP3, as well as the other IMAP, calendar & contacts benefits, as I predominantly use POP3, but if I have to choose, then IMAP & POP3. ;-)

    Thanks for all your hard work for us all jacadcaps
