Hide the menu

Post by HeelsBQ » 04 Jun 2005, 23:29

Hi,

Since 1 week, I installed Popman as a replacement for my old mail checker jetMAilMonitor. I love your checker.

As jetMailMonitor, this features are nice if implemented:
- Tray icon animation
- Preview HTML formatted e-mail if Internet Explorer is installed (security is handled by the firewall)

As View/ToolsBar and View/StatusBar, can you add an option to toggle Menu (with View/Menu )
- So when the menu is hidden, right-clic in messages box displays context with View options


Thanks

No, please do not do this because of security reasons.

This would definitely be a security risk.

HTML preview

Post by amaroo » 05 Dec 2005, 11:42

So we can pretty much take it that HTML preview will "never" be a feature with PopMan? This is on account of, quite valid, security reasons. But is there a way we can have this feature as a "plug-in" or option for those with whom security concerns have been assessed enough to warrant the ability of HTML preview?

Well, never say never! There is even a way to use mozilla for rendering HTML in any app:

But I guess I will not have the time to implement this in the near future...

Hasn't this been explained somewhere before? Popman is not an email client, if you want pretty coloured text with shiny flashing widgets, scrolling banners and annoying background midi music then shouldn't that be the job of your email client, not a mail checker?

I think for clarification we might like to point out to novice users, browsing this topic that Popman does display HTML emails, it just strips out all of the formatting and displays the plain text.
