OK, we have the good news and the great news! Which one do you want first?
So the good news first.
OE Classic web site now uses TLS encryption and this means you can access the page using https://
protocol so - https://www.oeclassic.com/
works and displays a padlock icon in many web browsers, indicating secure connection. The encryption is not forced upon user because many pages are public such as news or download page and they don't really need the encryption. Also, some older web browsers don't work well with the encryption and we wanted to support those too.
However, some web pages do benefit from encryption as they send/receive sensitive data (username and password, Pro version download) and these are - registered user page, IAF file decoder and so on. So for a few of these pages the encryption is mandatory and if you open them using non-secure URL (not starting with the https://
) the page will automatically switch to secure version. If you prefer to load all pages using secure connection you can simply update your web browser bookmark to https://www.oeclassic.com/
We also plan more updates to the web site to better serve you so expect more news in a while. Keep in mind that we now also have a Facebook page so like us and follow us there as well - https://www.facebook.com/oeclassic
And the great news?
At last, OE Classic 2.5 adds the Message Rules
feature. And it is already available for download
for OE Classic Pro users on the registered user page!
