Microsoft is closing us down

As of June 30th 2008, my plugin will cease to function as Microsoft has decided to terminate HTTPMail (also known as WebDav) protocol access. They have replaced this protocol has been replaced by a new one called DeltaSync. Unfortunately DeltaSync is undocumented and uses non-standard compression and encryption of message data.

Latest Release

On Wednesday July 20th at 6:34pm my wife released offspring 1.0. At this time I estimate at least a couple of weeks work to make sure the new systems are properly configured. Support for the plugin will, however, continue at a much lower priority. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Tips on invoking the sleep mode between the hours of 10pm and 6am would be greatly appreciated.

Release 1.41

Well, the 1.41 release seems to fix the "Not Implemented" error. It is available for both Jaguar and Panther.
However, now we have a new problem. Since Microsoft has decided to start charging for WebDav access to the Hotmail servers, unless people cough up, they will not be able to connect using programs like Outlook or Entourage. Unfortunately this also affects the plugin :(
There isn't a lot I can do about this, but I can verify that the plugin still works with "upgraded" Hotmail accounts

Release 1.40 - Panther Only

I've finally figured out the preferences bug in the Panther version. This makes the plugin much nicer to use under Panther :)
This release also includes a global preferences page in the Preferences Window

The 1.38 release fixes a really nasty memory leak that has been around for a while. It should now be possible to run Mail for extended periods of time without it taking your machine down :)

Release 1.35

This is the first release in a while to add any new major functionality.
Simple synchronization code.
Also, it is one year to the day since I released the source to the plugin here on sourceforge :)

Release 1.14

Release 1.14 adds an Installer for the plugin. This is an experimental piece of code that should allow most people to successfully install the plugin.
Several bugs have been fixed, but there is still quite a bit of work to be done.
