pilot-mailsync

pilot-mailsync is an application to transfer outgoing mail from and deliver incoming mail (from a mail source like IMAP, POP or local files) to a Palm OS device using the Palm Mail application. It relies on the libraries installed by pilot-link.

The current 0.9.2 release can be downloaded as .tar.gz.

You can contact the maintainer directly at jochen@pms.garcke.de.

News

No new releases

	* I stopped working on pilot-mailsync (as one could guess from the lack of releases)
	* The code is of course still there, feel free to do with it what you like.

0.9.2: 24 Nov 2005

	* works with pilot-link-0.12-pre
	* compiles with gcc-4.0

0.9.1: 15 Sep 2005

	* PalmMail Sync-Option "Unread" with better support
	* brought jpilot-interface up to date
	* fixes (sending mail in certain cases, configure)

0.9.0: 10 Mar 2005

 	* basic VersaMail support, syncs one mailbox with one account in VersaMail
	* bug fixes when sending mail
	* fix for possible bigger mails in eMail
	* deleted mails, which are still present on server get not transported to palm
For more VersaMail support the format of its preferences has to be understood further, see my mails on "versamail account" on the mailing list with the versamail_appinfo.c for accessing the preferences in the first one.

0.8.3: 17 Dec 2004

	* SMTP authentication can have own user/password
	* Can disable authentication types for SMTP (workaround for certain uncorrect servers)
	* Fixed bug which prevented sending Replys from Palm with some SMTP-servers
	* Mail identification again (change of behaviour: Palm gets date/time of sender not recipient)
	* Still no support for VersaMail, basic support will be in next version

0.8.2: 13 Aug 2004

	* set keepdays=number in .pilotmailrc to keep only mails from last number of days on the palm

0.8.0: 07 May 2003

        * SMTP after POP possible (smtppop=on)
          Uses same username/password as for fetching mail.
        * Draft and Filed of the Palm mail application are also synched.
          Mail on the mail source gets transported on the palm but
          _not_ vice versa. Deleting in Draft and Filed on Palm has no effect.
          Use draft= and filed= in .pilotmailrc

        * FindMail bug concerning hours/minutes fixed
