Darwin: Yes, I was just after some more feedback.
allen: You could've disabled it from using its Permissions feature by doing this:
              1. Click Tools, Options
              2. Click the Permissions tab
              3. Click the Settings tab
              4. Uncheck the first three checkboxes and click Save.

Nope, it can't be used to download files from the BitTorrent network.

Wivi (http://www.wivi.com) is a new p2p application through which you can broadcast live video to an unlimited audience.

Wivi is now in open beta and is unique in that it is completely decentralized (there are no servers and no filtering or regulating of content) and in the simplicity a user can broadcast his own live TV (all a user needs is a regular internet home connection).

You can download the Wivi Beta at http://www.wivi.com

Yes, its working just fine for me. Maybe its your graphics card that's having problems displaying them (since Fast Picture Viewer uses it for rendering them).

I did. Just thought I would ask for a temporary fix until he fixes it.

Espresso is a mail client and is set as the default. The problem is that when clicking a Mailto: link, its compose window pops up without the To field filled. Somehow, its ignoring the info given via the %1 variable.

I just want a program that takes whatever Vista gives to the e-mail client and give Espresso the e-mail address that's in the original command line parameter (Espresso uses the -compose mailto:%1 parameter in order to fill in the To field of the compose window).

I would like it if someone could make a program that forwards Mailto: links to another program (such as Espresso).

Yes, but as a program that resides in the system tray.

Is there a program that can forward mailto: links to another program? I know there's wsendto.exe, but it only works for Pegasus Mail.

I think it does. Plus, you can import that format into it.

Intro:

Espresso is a powerful permissions-based email client designed to completely eliminate spam as you define it from your Inbox.

Espresso's unique email filtering system is based on common sense. Everyone knows from whom they want to receive email. Anyone else who sends you messages is sending you junk, otherwise known as spam. Espresso does not filter junk. It only looks for messages you want to receive based on simple, yet powerful rules. Using a number of options available, you decide how to handle messages from unknown senders.

Who is this app designed for:

It is designed for anyone that wants an e-mail client that won't bog the system down and still have most of the features found in others that are bigger than it.

The Good

  • Lightweight and portable email client
  • Powerful junk mail filtering based on permissions
  • Filter messages using regular expressions
  • Ability to add notes to individual messages
  • Hide private messages from prying eyes
  • Automatic blind copy on all outgoing mail
  • Easily flag important messages
  • Supports POP3, IMAP4, HTTP protocols
  • Preconfigured for easy setup of Hotmail and GMail
  • Built-in ability to backup and restore mailbox
  • Powerful spell-checker for outgoing messages
  • Choose to save or delete messages when you send them
  • Automatically mark messages as read when moved to trash
  • Fast searching for text in the selected folder's/all messages

The needs improvement section

  • Has some non-standard keyboard shortcuts
  • Doesn't catch mailto: links in Vista unless you modify the Registry (EDIT: I fixed it by reinstalling Vista)
  • Doesn't allow you to sync its local folders with IMAP folders
  • Doesn't automatically add outgoing e-mails addresses to the address book (even with the option checked)
  • Can't disable the dialog that appears when closing the "add contact"/"compose" dialog
  • An additional Re: is added to the beginning of the subject of each reply you make to a message
  • Unicode isn't fully supported (characters used in other languages look weird)
  • There should be a space between the user's reply and the quoted message

Why I think you should use this product

I think that you should use this product because its light on RAM/HD usage, is fast when launching it/viewing messages, and is still feature-packed.

How does it compare to similar apps

It comes with most of the features that they have. Such as Spell Checking and Flagging/Labeling messages.

Conclusions

In conclusion, its a really good e-mail client that is lightweight and is still being worked on (the developer stated that he would update it later this year). My rating for it is a 4.5/5.

Well, I've stopped using WazTree III until its worked on some more. Now I'm using a file manager called FileMatrix (http://www.gardenero...filematrix/index.htm).

No crashes so far. But, it does flicker (refresh) more than it should.

Here's a new file manager that i've been using for a couple of days:
