MailManager 2.0.6 released

Fri, 20 Jan 2006 13:09:20 -0000

I've just uploaded the latest stable release of MailManager 2.0 to Sourceforge. You can grab it from here:

It's purely a bug fix release with the following issues resolved:

- We're now using html2text (included) instead of stripogram for converting
HTML to its plain text equivalent (when sending out HTML mail, we also
include a plain text alternative for those who can't read HTML messages).
This results in far prettier plain text conversion.
- Notify user/group flags can now be set/cleared correctly on account
preferences (#1404595).
- Improved address validation. Well, it's now a bit more lax, but it's
completely conformant to RFCs 2821 and 2822 (#1396051).
- MySQL: Default categories are now set up at installation (#1392386).
- HTML parts of multipart/alternative messages are now encoded as UTF-8
rather than, bizarrely, being forced into ISO-8859-1 (#1368283).
- Make sure the user is informed about *why* test data cannot be removed

As usual, let us know how you get along, and if you've any problems please report them through the Sourceforge bug tracker with the 'Group' set to 'v2.0.6':
