Re: Banner in the program

Just to clarify -- POP Peeper rarely shows a banner; usually only when there's a sale (I believe the Cyber Monday ad in the prior post was the last campaign displayed, even though there was a Winter sale last month) and the banner is often only shown for 1 day. You'll see a permanent banner if POP P...

Re: PopPeeper 5.2.2 will not start

I don't have any experience with sandboxie, so I'm afraid I can't provide much insight. My best guess would be that when you first start PP, that the folder structure hasn't been initialized yet by sandboxie, so the appdata folder is invalid? Try using sandboxie again, and if you get the "setup...

Re: Portable: poppeeper.ini location

I will admit that I regret making the main program folder the default location for portable files (I've changed my ways in other programs). Unfortunately, it's kind of hard to change it now, even adding another (3rd) default location would make it messy and is why I haven't done it before (I have se...

Re: hotmail account issue

Ok, hopefully it continues to work! In regards to the "limiting activity" -- make sure that the "IDLE/Push" option is enabled under edit-account / general. This allows POP Peeper to remain connected to the server and is much more efficient than polling every X minutes. Idle is en...

Re: hotmail account issue

The problem is not on POP Peeper's end, so going to extremes to delete the PP-account or anything else wouldn't have a direct effect. The error is specific to Outlook and is at best vague and at worst nonsensical; but most likely, the "not connected" is referring to something in Outlook's ...

It looks like MS has gone and crushed the little guy once again :lol:

The latest version of PowerToys has an always-on-top toggle (Win+Ctrl+T):

Glad it's working again! You could very well be right; it does sound like it could have been related to permissions.

Re: When reading mail, can you add a "Prior Unread" to go with the "Next Unread" button?

"Prior unread" has been added as a toolbar button. It will also be available as a possible delete action (main menu: Tools / PPtweaker / Misc / "when I delete a message..."). And keyboard shortcut (pptweaker/Shortcuts/window=message/navigate: prior unread). This will be available...

if you run msconfig (or "system configuration"), there's a "boot log" under the "boot" tab. I'm not sure what all this records; the reference I found to it (https://www.windowscentral.com/how-enable-boot-log-windows-10) mentioned this was for device drivers, but I haven...

Re: prevent deleting mail on server

That setting in TB doesn't do what you think it does. POP3 clients traditionally -- by default -- delete messages from the server when they're retrieved. By setting it to "don't delete", it simply won't delete messages when they're downloaded into TB. I could be wrong (it's been over a dec...

Re: prevent deleting mail on server

As you wish. Like I said, moving messages is another alternative and it sounds like the preferred method if you're concerned about efficiency. As long as the message is still in your inbox, it still has to be processed to know whether you've read (or "deleted") it.

Re: PopPeeper 5.2.2 will not start

I've seen this happen with various programs (including POP Peeper, but also other companies' programs I run, like Discord) before. It usually starts happening after a Windows Update and even if it happens several reboots in a row, it eventually starts working again out of the blue. The ini file coul...

Re: prevent deleting mail on server

That's the way that POP Peeper has always worked and probably always will. A couple alternatives: 1) Hide instead of delete. You can assign a keyboard shortcut like 'H' under main menu: Tools / PPtweaker / Shortcuts. 2) Move the messages instead. To facilitate this, you can delete to a different fol...

Re: hotmail account issue

You can get a google voice phone number for free and it will allow you to get text messages. Just go to voice.google.com while logged into your preferred google account and you should be able to set that up.

Re: When reading mail, can you add a "Prior Unread" to go with the "Next Unread" button?

This is one of those suggestions that I'm surprised no one has requested :wink: I mean, I read new messages from the bottom up, so that they're in order and so it makes sense in that case to have "previous unread". Although, "previous" would probably work for me, but I don't use ...

We can try backing up a step, then. Disable Oauth2 like mjs mentioned (change the "Oauth2" dropdown to "password"). Then, make sure that you have the correct password. If you've enabled 2FA (aka 2-factor/step authorization/verification), then you need to use an app-specific passw...

Re: Link opened in internal browser

Sure, I can take a look at it. I suspect it's javascript-based or something like that to prevent normal clicking from working, though, and in that case, there's probably not anything to be done about it for now (ie. once PP supports a different HTML-renderer...). View the message in PP and then sele...
