Pimmy 4.2  - What's new

IMPORTANT for 4.0 users

Since version 4.1 and so in this 4.2 too the configuration file and the address book file format have been changed and will be converted at first start of this version. The new files could not be read by the previous versions of Pimmy . The old files will be kept as "Pimmy.cfg.49" and "Pimmy.dir.2". Before installing this version please carefully read chapter Important note on Pimmy update and configuration files.

4.1 users

Compared to version 4.1 no format changes have taken place so you can go back from 4.2 to 4.1 in any moment . In this situation any group in the address book will be converted to a contact with the member list as address.

Summary


Main new features

These are the main new features of this release compared to Pimmy 4.1

Groups

The address book can now contain groups of contacts which may be used to send a message to several persons. A group can contain an unlimited number of contacts and even other groups. The program avoids cycles automatically. The alias of each group must be different either from other groups and other contacts.

In the message editing window a group may be used as it is a contact. Before the sending the group is automatically expanded and replaced with all the addresses of the members of the group. It is also possible to expand the group manually with the proper command. If a message is saved as a draft the group is not expanded, whereas the sent messages have the group expanded.

In the message list window and in the message editing window new commands are available to add the sender address, the address of one or more recipients or an address in the text to a group. If the address is not present in the address book Pimmy lets you add it.

In the filter window a new rule can be used to check for the presence of an address in a group. Please note that the "Forward" action of filters does not work on groups but only on single contacts.

Searching for messages

The message search feature has been dramaticaly improved and now lets you search all folders or the selected folders or the open folder for messages. Many search criterias are available. As usual this feature is also available to search mailboxes, newsgroups and RSS channels. In this situation if the text of a message is not in the cache is will not be downloaded. It is also possibile to search an external message source, as a MBOX file.

The search feature is available in the main windows with a new button and new menu commands and in the message list window where you can search for messages and display the list of all messages found or go to the first / next message found. In the result list you can change the search criteria. In this list a new column has been added to show the folder where the message is present.
