More detailed release information

OE Classic 1.01b released

Jun 20th, 2011

Bug fixes
  • International characters in headers (subject, from...) are correctly decoded
Yes, only single bug fix but the one that we've been trying to solve for months. OE Classic no longer has issues with ìñtërñåtîøñäl çháràctérs in message headers (fields like "subject", "from", "to" and others). And some minor improvements in installation program.

New features
  • Two versions - basic (limited) and pro (unlimited) available for purchase
  • Messages are now deleted from server after successful download
  • Expiration date removed
  • Added mini-tabs below the message view for source viewing
  • Welcome message when Inbox is empty
Bug fixes
  • Message list doesn't count attachments twice anymore
IMPORTANT: Starting with this version OE Classic will delete emails from server (after it successfully downloads them). If you still want to use it in "test mode", then you should set the option Leave a copy of messages on server in your account properties.

This version is now available for purchase at promo price. Use the opportunity to get it while it is only $19.95 because when the newsreader is implemented the price will certainly go up. The price includes updates!

New features
  • Address book - Add, modify or delete contact email and other info
  • Flag and watch columns are now functional
  • Add files as attachment in message edit
  • Auto-complete contact in message edit with drop-down selection
  • Auto-recognition of male/female contact if unspecified manually
IMPORTANT: This is final Alpha version. Starting with next version OE Classic will delete emails from server (after it successfully downloads them). If you still want to use it in "test mode", then you should set the option Leave a copy of messages on server in your account properties. New version (1.0 Beta) will be split into limited free version and unlimited full version available for ordering at promotional price.

Following few releases will shift focus from new features to fixing, speeding up and extensive testing of built-in features. After that is done, we'll continue adding new options like Newsreader, RSS, Calendar etc.

OE Classic 1.0a6 released

May 26th, 2011

  • Create, rename and delete user folders
  • Folders can be moved around using mouse drag&drop

  • Move message to folder from popup and main menu
  • Outlook Express import updated to use folders as well
Bug fixes

OE Classic 1.0a5 released

May 14th, 2011

After a short break due to other projects we were busy with, we're back on track with Alpha 5 version. Beta/release version is also very near.

New features
  • URLs and email addresses are converted to links in plain text messages
  • Better display of plain text message bodies and fixed charset issues
  • Better charset detection in HTML message body for non-English languages
Bug fixes
  • Attachment images are now visible in message display
  • HTML entities are interpreted as text instead of HTML in plain text messages

OE Classic 1.0a4 released

Apr 28th, 2011

New features
  • Message sorting is now much faster and more precise - it will also make program start faster
  • Message sorting by Windows locale (affects non-English languages)
  • Last message in folder is auto-selected on program startup and when switching folders
  • Some configuration items (toolbars) in INI file have new names
  • Main list-view columns positions and widths are now saved in configuration
  • Stored email database will be upgraded to Alpha 4 format to support new features in this version
Bug fixes
  • List-view sort direction triangle disappeared when column was double clicked
  • Some code refactoring to improve program stability
This version can upgrade your stored email database to Alpha 4 format from earlier versions - Alpha 1 to Alpha 3. Future versions will only support Alpha 4 format (and later) and when first stable version is released, it will only offer upgrade from the latest Alpha/Beta version available.

So - to keep your emails downloaded with these early alpha releases you only have to upgrade each version and not to skip them. Database format in stable releases will be less prone to changes and you will be able to upgrade at your own pace.

New features
  • Message multi-select in main window (using CTRL+A, CTRL, Shift etc.)
  • Various operations now work with multi-selection (move, delete etc.)
  • Message-list dates are now formatted according to Windows locale
  • Auto-selection of next (or previous) message after message list changes
  • Status bar now displays messages information
Bug fixes
  • Changing folder didn't work for keyboard, only for mouse clicks
Download new version on download page.
