bmetelsy, I kinda thought that's what it was

Your double-click problem is kinda strange, though. That part works fine for me (WinXP, btw). My problem is that I use Mozilla, and it's built-in mail client won't open that way. I've got to open the mail client after MailChecker opens Mozilla. I could use Thunderbird, I guess, but...

What's your the path you set for the emailclient?
What exactly happens if you doubleclick?
Comment #23 Friday, October 03, 2003 3:13 PM
digital_trucker, maybe a solution (I don't use mozilla): there is a chance Mozilla will open the mailclient directly by using some parameters like -mail or something, maybe there is something in the documents about this?

If I try to double click after mail notification, the dialogue with headers pops up and interferes with the normal opening of the mail program (outlook) that I have pointed to. If I click on and there is no mail, it does open outlook without problems.

AndreasV - nope, that won't work. Apparently, only the developers builds can use command-line parameters. Oh weel, time to dust off the Thunderbird.

Sorry to be a nag, but if you choose a different icon, mailchecker always reverts to the default one when you restart OD. The work-around for this is to pick your new icon and rename it to 'mailcheck.png'. Shouldn't have to do that, though.

bmetelsky - I get that too, but luckily it doesn't seem to interfere with my prog (I don't use OE, though). I still have to close the dialogue box.

digital_trucker, oeps forgat to save the custom image...

bmetelsky: hmm, seems to me like the Object Dock doesn't do double click properly, I will fix that right away

Hey guys, if you use Mozilla like I do, you've probably already discovered that you can't open the mail client directly from mailchecker. I finally figured out a workaround so that you can open Mozilla's mail client from mailchecker.

Create a shortcut in your Mozilla folder and call it MozillaMail, and set the path to mozilla.exe. Click OK and all that. Then right-click the MozillaMail.lnk you just cerated and select properties. Modify the path by adding


OUTSIDE the quotation marks. Then set mailchecker to point to MozillaMail.lnk. You'll have to type MozillaMail.lnk in by hand because for some reason you can't browse to it and have it work.

digital_trucker: great work:)

Oh, and another thing...

If you want to use a different icon without having to reset it every time you start OD, just take the icon you want and replace the mailcheck.png with it. Of course, you have to use a png and rename it to mailcheck.png.

Is it possible to encrypt the e-mail password? I noticed in the ini file it is displayed in plain text. Scary!

hashonboat: oops, you got a point there :shame: It will be done in the next release:)

Thanks for the good work, Andreas! I'll second the icon change request. Also, could it just be a single click (and skip that popup)? Christ, what a whiner I am!

Again, thanks!

Lee Talbert: I am working on an update, it will be done soon

Would it much trouble to add multiple e-mail accounts from a single docklet?

fkewe: nope
