Re: POP Peeper crashing shortly after start, Runtime error

This issue should be fixed in v5.0.3; however, it also means that you have an underlying issue that your "data" folder is not writable. If you go to: - main menu: Tools / Options - Select the "Storage" page Presumably, your "data path" will be something like "c:\program files..." If that's the case,...

Re: Yahoo mail changes

Thanks for the info, Sampei.Nihira. That's kind of an interesting tactic -- on the one hand, Yahoo/AOL have promised to deprecate the password method, which is presumably why Thunderbird is doing this; but on the other hand, I believe that app-passwords will still be allowed, which means people usin...

Re: Pop Peeper Exit problem

The timestamps on your data files appear to be recent. There have been cases where something (possibly Windows Restore) causes the files to be restored after a system reboot, but I would think that simply exiting and restarting POP Peeper (as opposed to restarting your computer) would preserve the p...

Re: Yahoo OAuth2 in PP

lakrsrool is providing instructions for creating an app-password, which is an alternative but not the same thing as Oauth2 and may or may not always be the best solution. There are 2 requirements for the Oauth2 button to appear for Yahoo accounts: 1) You must be using IMAP (not POP3 or WebMail) 2) T...

Re: Undoing the PopPeeper Pro 5 vs PopPeeper 5 Gordian Knot

I would be absolutely happy to address any of the problems, but my main concern with your post is that you did not provide any specific examples. I get unnecessary icon alerts, pop-up messages, notices that won't go away even when i've acted on them. Please provide more information about this. What ...

Re: Problem with SSL/TLS negotiation - missing ciphers in suite

As I alluded to above, POP Peeper uses the system's API for http/https calls, that's why you need the OS's support for RSS feeds. The SSL plugin is used for IMAP, POP3 and SMTP.

This is effectively a way to test fixes before it is released to everyone. To enable this option: 1) On the main menu...

Re: Problem with SSL/TLS negotiation - missing ciphers in suite

Reggorf is right, it depends on what your version of IE supports (it's not really "IE" but IE uses the same system-provided technology that POP Peeper uses). I've seen cases where the relevant options were disabled, so make sure that you've enabled the appropriate settings: - In the Windows Start me...

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

This issue has been resolved. The fix is addressed in v5.0.2 ("Fix: Potential crash at startup due to AntiJunk initialization") and was fixed for ws3333 by modifying the ini file.

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

What if you: 1) delete the poppeeper.ini file (in the current folder, not the "old" folder) 2) Create a new poppeeper.ini file and copy/paste the *text* from the "old" file into the new -> ini files are just plain text, so open them in any text editor like notepad or wordpad -- just make sure that i...

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

Ok, good. So the next step I would do is to copy just the ini file -- this will include your accounts and most settings. I wouldn't allow it to check the accounts; so if PP starts, immediately exit and then copy all the other files (make sure you copy and not move as it may be necessary to delete fi...

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

Well, you would need to grant permission to the UAC prompt, but that does not necessitate the need to use an administrator account (granting UAC permissions when prompted and running the installer as admin are not exactly the same). But if you installed PP to a different folder and it has the same p...

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

Based on your descriptions, it sounds like there's probably a permissions issue. Here's what I would try: 1) Rename the folder where you installed POP Peeper, presumably: C:\Program Files (x86)\POP Peeper\ to C:\Program Files (x86)\POP Peeper-old\ 2) As your regular user (not the admin account), re-...

Re: Pop Peeper won't start

If you right-click on the POPPeeper.exe file and select "Properties" -- do you see an option to "unblock" it on the bottom? If so, press it and things should work.

Otherwise, what are your settings for the following 2 options:
under main menu: Tools / Options / Storage
- Ini Location
- Data Path
