OE Classic 1.64 released (Compact, Reply flags)

Sep 30th, 2013

This version brings you option for compacting folders. In Outlook Express compact folder was source of many folder corruptions, so we took extra measures to make sure this doesn't happen in OE Classic. To ensure this, compacting has a built in integrity check. So, before the compacting even begins, folder is scanned and checked for possible errors. If there are some errors compact function can detect, it won't start and will report the error to keep your data safe.

As usual, this is not the only new feature - so take a look at the feature list.

Compact can reclaim lost space due to message deletion. It also displays how much space has been lost.
