Software News : Sylpheed 3.0.3 for AmiCygnix released
Posted by cygnusEd on 2020/8/31 8:31:16 (297 reads) News by the same author
Software News

Sylpheed is an email program based on the GTK+ GUI Toolkit. The design and the user interface are similar to many well-known e-mail programs from the Windows world, e.g. Outlook Express.




Why another mailer? Sylpheed has very good support for the IMAP4 protocol, which is only available with a few Amiga mailers. Sylpheed also has other interesting properties.

New in this package:

* New version 3.0.3 with many new features compared to the previous version 2.6.0.
* The program was linked with GTK+ 2.24.32. This means that drag 'n drop, among other things, now also works.
* A spell check with Aspell is now integrated. A German and an English language catalog are included. The catalogs available for AbiWord can also be used.
* Mail addresses and personal data can now be determined via LDAP. For this purpose, Sylpheed was linked with openldap 2.4.49.
* Spam filter function using "bogofilter". The program "bogofilter 1.2.5" is included in the package and is installed automatically.
* Now uses an icon set in the style of AmigaOS 4.1.
* New start scripts for the start on the desktop and the standalone start.

Supported protocols:

* POP3 / APOP
* IMAP4rev1
* SMTP / SMTP AUTH
* NNTP (News)
* SSL / TLSv1 (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4rev1, NNTP)

Features:

* multiple accounts
* thread display
* News reader
* printing
* address book
* template
* powerful filtering
* powerful search
* customization of toolbar
* mark / color label
and much more...

 Re: Sylpheed 3.0.3 for AmiCygnix released
Thanks, Edgar

But after setting up my 2 IMAP accounts, it will neither retrieve nor send messages for either. I've used the same account information which I used in Simplemail, which is able (with the occasional lock up or crash) to send and receive from both. I can't find much online about setting up IMAP on Sylpheed. Most of it seems to pertain specifically to Gmail, which is not where I have my accounts.

Any insights from you or others appreciated.

Paul

Sad to hear, that it crashes. Thanks for the crashlog, I will try to fix it!

@Paul

Tested it here with a GMX account and it works fine. It also was well tested with a gmail account.

What does the log say? Open the log window with the menu item "Tools/Log window".

For more debug information, please launch sylpheed in an amiga shell with "sylpheed --debug".

When trying to run debug from sell I get:

8.Programs:AmiCygnix/Software/Sylpheed/Sylpheed-3.0.3> sylpheed --debug

(sylpheed:275): Gtk-WARNING **: cannopt open display:

I opened the Sylpheed log window and tried to download all emails, and to simply get new emails. Nothing shows up in the log.

For good measure, I set up Sylpheed with my Gmail account, too. It did try to run that through, but stopped with a complaint about insecure SSL. This was set up with the specific Gmail IMAP setup option.

@Paul,

Oh - I forgot to say: before you can start sylpheed in a shell, you must launch the desktop before!

What kinds of account did you define? Also POP3 accounts? It is really weired, that you got no output in the log window.

That's strange as gmail / IMAP was successfully tested before. Maybe I have to add a newer OpenSSL to sylpheed.

Here are some screenshots:

The green messages (or similar) must appear, even if it fails.

Hi Edgar,

Well, I took the sledge hammer approach. I deleted Sylpheed, re-downloaded it and reinstalled it. I can now access my two main IMAP accounts. The Gmail account is another story. I got a message from Google that I had tried to access Gmail with a less secure app. It directed me to choose leaving my Gmail accessible to the less secure apps, which I did from my Windoze computer. But it still won't let me access the account.

This really doesn't bother me since the only reason I have Gmail is because Goggle requires it as part of owning an Android phone.

BTW, I don't have any POP3 accounts to even try on Sylpheed. But it's doing what I want it to do now.
Thanks for providing the program.

Paul
