This is nice. Multiple-accounts, good implementation. How do I reset this? I got the emailnotify plasmoid installed too and a misconfiguration or something has caused gx-mail and emailnotify to not detect mail that has been deleted. Whenever I get mail on gmail it just gets added on - the deleted email doesn't get detected. I think this has to do with the config because before emailnotify would notice if an email has been delete. Is there a way to delete the config file and try again?

Hi, it's interesting.

Plasmoid delete their configuration and immediately check new mails every time if you click on OK button in configuration dialog. But i don't think, problem is here.

Plasmoid search unreaded emails in INBOX folder (on IMAP Accounts).

I don't know what's happened, really... :-/.

Think this was a bug on my system been getting some odd problems as of late. Thanks for the great program, attributing to my system, will probably have to reinstall to get rid of all the crazies. :)

Nice little widget this. However, there is one bug that i noticed. After I initially installed it and went into the configuration and added 4 email accounts, it seems only one of them was really activated (the first one). To bypass this behaviour i had to add them one by one, hitting the "OK" button in the main config after each new account i added. Then bring the config up again, add another account, and so on.

i would vote for the following:
- popup notify
- possibly launch email program (from popup?)

that would be really great!

yes, a notification showing the email headers would be great :)

i would also like an option to show the email header for every email when you click on the icon, not just how many mails you've got

yeah, showing the subjct (maybe in the notification) would be a great thing !

Hi,
unfortunately there still seems to be a bug at least in the ssl mail lookups.
After setting up my account the first time gx looks for mail I have to accept the certificate and it correctly gets the status of my account. But all subsequent lookups produce the following error messages:
Error while reading: error:0D07209B:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_get_object:too long

Hi,

it's interesting. I tested ssl with three different accounts and it worked.

Plasmoid seems to load badly certificate from config file.

What's your mail account?
What do you have distribution?
Do you have 32bit or 64bit OS?
What do you have version of openssl lib?

Maybe it'll be problem here.

Hi,

I am using 64-bit Kubuntu Jaunty with libssl/openssl 0.9.8g.

The error occurs with my account at the University of Karlsruhe (pop.uni-karlsruhe.de) and I just found out that using my gmail account, everything is fine. So the problem doesn't seem to be related to the specific system I have installed.

What is still weird to me is the fact that it gets the status once, but only once on my Karlsruhe account...

Hi, there is simple answer.

What Plasmoid do:

First encrypted connection:
- accept certificate
- save certificate
- check messages


Second encrypted connection:
- load certificate (in your case probably badly) - you get error
- if success then compare certificate
- if equal then check messages else show new certificate and save, etc.

So is there any known workaround? I'm having the same problem on Mandriva x86_64. I have a Lavabit email account.

Also (maybe those problems are related) the certificate from yahoo.co.jp (unlike the one from yahoo.com) doesn't seem to get saved properly, as I'm prompted to accept it on each e-mail check.

To dsherk and DuckZ2:

Please test new version (0.4.2). I fixed problem with certificates, I hope.

Tested on Lavabit and pop.uni-karlsruhe.de mail servers.

Probably is the bug in QT SSL class. I changed method of saving.

Thanks

What about writing a DataEngine?
I see so many similar Plasmoids here around, and all write their own Data-Handling without a DataEngine. Plasma is designed to seperate Datahandling and viewing.

So probably someone wants to write a complete MailCheckerDataEngine, with good luck this will take its way to kdebase ;)

Hi, maybe in future...

This is my first plasmoid and my first c++ application. I studied DataEngines and its good idea, but it's not time for this.

I wanted only plasmoid for checking e-mails that really works ;-).

This plasmoid almost replaces the old KDE mail checker Korn which was part of Korganizer in KDE3. I've been looking for months for a replacement in KDE4 and this is a great plasmoid!

One feature request: please show the subject and sender headers of new messages. They should flash when new mail arrives and appear again in the extender that appears when single-clicking the plasmoid. This helps the user decide whether it needs a response right away and its worth opening a mail client or if the new message can wait to be read.

I'd also like Yahoo! Webmail support but I realize that that's probably not possible.

And what do you mean with "Yahoo! Webmail support"?

Report

I guess he meant an access to Yahoo Mail via their publicly available API - http://developer.yahoo.com/mail/

Report

Yep, there are many mail checking tools in Windows but only a couple can check Yahoo's mail, and none for Linux (that I know of) so if it can be done in this plasmoid that would be wonderful. :)

But the fact that this isn't a common feature may mean its hard to do, Yahoo isn't exactly as well known as Google for their APIs. So not a high priority.

Does Yahoo! provide access via IMAP4 or POP3? Or only via webmail?

I will check this in future.

Only via Webmail (pay users get POP3)

Did you try YPOPs! or FreePOPs apps? It's good solution for this.
