Thanks a lot, I remember that thread but it didn't occur to me they are speaking about next major version, I thought it was about another minor update.

The forum is active, and we're expecting a beta for v.4 towards the end of the month.What is supposed to be in v.4 ? I didn't catch any discussion about upcoming major version on UR forums.-ashwken (February 19, 2008, 03:36 PM)
My needs are not so critical, but it is improtant for me to be able to locate specific strings in past e-mails (up to 25,000+ so far) quickly.I'm using Archivarius. It can search both Pocomail and The Bat!, and many other way weirder formats (Zoot !). It takes a second... and that's an exageration.-CodeTRUCKER (January 24, 2008, 04:31 PM)
Still, is that a valid reason? Majority rules?It's a business decision.
I don't really care if others are lax in patching their OS. Are you saying that it is the email client developers' job to protect the users who do not practice any security at the expense of other users? Oh, please! Those fools aren't using Pocomail or The Bat! anyway, right?Not sure about The Bat! as it has different average user profile than Pocomail.
I think you are mixing up IMAP and MAPI, true?I'm sorry for the typo, of course "MAPI has a history of security threats" and it shall read that I'm not supporting their "no MAPI" stance. (Which has actually changed recently...).
I used Pocomail for three years previously (and Barca for a while when they first released it), and I recently looked at "The Bat!", but I simply don't wish to live with what I consider the "crippled" HTML rendering along with the extremely limited support of IMAP mail accounts. Personally, with common security protections on my PC (and other PCs I use) I have not seen any security threat from an HTML message that wouldn't easily be handled by an Antivirus and/or Anti-Spyware program.1. Problems with HTML in Pocomail/Barca on forwards or replies are not intentional, ie. it's not to "increase security", it's due to a limited viewer/editor control used. Btw. AFAIK it is getting replaced.-J-Mac (January 24, 2008, 01:00 PM)
And I have no idea why these apps do not willingly support IMAP. Anyone know why IMAP is a problem with either Pocomail or The Bat!?Not sure, my guess is that it's way more complex to implement, and way less people use it than the POP protocol.
All those apps are subject to allowing malware to use that path to spam people - I don't believe that's a valid concern. (Someone should point me to the last time that issue was recorded in the last five years. I cannot find any!)
FeedDemon is overrated and hyped. FeedReader is better IMO.What are FeedReader's advantages over FeedDemon?-sri (January 14, 2008, 12:26 AM)
(I recently noticed that the project is still being carried on SourceForge as if it were still active.)Marek moved there in an attempt to find collaborators or someone who will take over.
