Pegasus Mail

As per "V4.3 has been through nearly 60 betas and 14 release candidates, far more than any previous release of the program, and I can count well over 1500 changes in the code. V4.3 is largely about modernizing the Pegasus Mail codebase as a platform for future development, and represents the last version 4 release there will be"

What works

Uploading mail, testing sound with a wav file (Tools -> Options -> User Interface -> Reporting/logging -> New Mail Reporting -> Play a newmail alert sound)

What does not

In a draft, when pressing the send mail button on a draft or the close button, Pegasus crashes with the WINE error:

fixme:storage:StgCreateDocfile Transacted mode not implemented.

When sending, you don't actually lose your message; the next time you run Pegasus, its waiting in the que and all you have to do is press the 'send all queued mail' button for it to send.

There are various other crashes when closing windows with the [X] button (e.g. Folders Window)


What was not tested

I only tested sending mail; thus, I did not test receiving mail or any of the more specialized functions. I also did NOT use any Microsoft DLLs (as per previous reports, using DLLOVERRIDE can help fix things)

Additional Comments

Installer has some text cut off. As per To run, use "wine winpm-32.exe -Z 128". Internet Options will be greyed out on the first use; go Tools -> Options -> General Settings -> Advanced Settings and for "Load Internet Services (WSOCK32.DLL)" select Always or On Demand Only. Close and restart.

Pegasus ShutDown-Problem
by Werner on Wednesday April 19th 2006, 18:28
Version 4.31 has also the "Shutdown" - problem.
No I found a solution; it's not elegant, but useful.

I use the German version of Suse Linux 10.0. At the dialog I use the possibility .
So if I want to exit PegasusMail, first I take the in the file-dialog of pmail, then I close the terminal-window.
After this prozess Pegasus is closed in the normal way and without problems.

Perhaps somebody has a better idea to take this more elegant. I'm only a beginner of Linux, so I try more than I know.

Sorry, there was a write-mistake:

it must be called
...At the dialog for possibilites I use the possibility "start in Terminal".

(This is important, because this is the solution!)

The program hangs on exit. Werner's solution of starting the program from a terminal and then closing the terminal (thus killing the process) works, but isn't ideal.

Originally, Pegasus was also hanging when I sent mail. I changed Pegasus's options Tools, Options, Advanced Settings so that WSOCK32.dll is loaded always, and this fixed the crash on sending. Note that this is the opposite of the advice given for some of the earlier versions. I haven't added any native DLLs.

Further to my previous email, Pegasus does still crash when clicking Send on the email. The email is available in the outbox when you restart Pegasus, and sending it from there works without crashing.

Installed Pegasus 4.41 under CrossOver in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty). Everything seems to work fine, EXCEPT Pegasus closes whenever an email is sent, queued, or when the Folders window is closed. This behaviour is independent of whether winsock.dll is specified to be loaded "always" or "on demand". Have not tried involking Pegasus withy the -Z 128 parameter, but from other posts in this forum, I suspect this does not impact the premature closing of the program.

This behaviour is identical on two quite different sets of hardware; an 8-year-old desktop system with one AMD Athlon processor, and a new HP laptop with a dual-core AMD x64 processor. Therefore does not seem to be a 32-bit vs 64-bit issue. Same version of Pegasus works perfectly on both systems; desktop with Win2K and laptop with Vista.
