MailServe 2.1.2

Category : Technology/MailServe2dot1dot2.txt

I've released MailServe 2.1.2. It contains support for the Via parameter for Fetchmail, and a new Traditional and Simplifed Chinese Localisation.

Actually, I've also updated Postfix Enabler 1.2, silently, with both a Traditional and Simplifed Chinese Localisation. Didn't think it was worth changing the version number for. But what I hope to have is for every one of our applications to have a Chinese localisation. Will Luca ever hope to replace the abacus in a Chinese business man's heart? Will have to find a Sinicised name for Luca, then.

There was also a couple of interface bugs at MailServe's Monitor panel. The log monitor table shows an extraneous empty last column when the window is enlarged. (This looks like an Interface Builder bug but we've found a way around it). Thanks to Patricio Mason from Santiago, Chile, who reported this problem, and the next. Saludos, Patricio.

Also, the Mail Queue table didn't work right in certain situations. The problem was that the mail queue output is generated by the system in a variety of ways, depending on the problem found during delivery. Sometimes you get a Remarks/Details line about the problem with the mail delivery, and sometimes you don't. And sometimes a few destinations are coalesced into one queue ID and sometimes they're split with one queue ID for each destination.

So, we've got to test for as many permutations as we know about. It works OK now for those that we do know of - at least for now.

So MailServe 2.1.2 is out and I'm preparing another update for WebMon next.

I'm adding the ability to set up multiple WebDAV folders to WebMon. And to choose whether to turn on auto-listing of directories. It's almost done.
