Can you add ssl support and ability to specify custom port (e.g. to fetch mails from gmail)

Ok I'll do this. After investigation about ssl pop connectivity, I guess this should not be a too difficult feature to add.

Hey szamrok I guess you're an arch linux fellow. If I'm right about this, I thank you. I am a convinced arch linux user too.

In my opinion such software uses less memory than normal email client, and this is enough to be usefull. There is no point in having opened "normal" mail client whole time.

Thank you szamrok for supporting me ! :) And I perfectly agree with you.

I guess not everybody needs such an app as a mailbox notifier, but people who use them know why.
First of all I did not invent this kind of app at all. You can see that there is a lot of them available for windows, for instance. I guess I went through this because I did not find what I exactly wanted for Linux/Kde.
The first purpose oh this apps is to notify in realtime people for new mail, without the need of having your email client opened, which is often a heavyweight application. But KPopAssistant has absolutly no intention of replacing a full featured email client.
From there one can imagine what to do when noticed about a new mail arrival (here, from a systray icon) : read it, delete it, reply, check for attachment or size. You can check the whole mailbox size and see if it is not 100% full. You may also look for spam mail and delete it. In that concern I'll be certainly programming an extended version with an automatic spam filter in a near future.
Finally you may use this program when you're not at home with your own computer, and still manage your mailbox without a full email client properly configured.

So, some people need it or just find it's cool or handy, and some others just don't. It's up to them.

heh.
at first.
e.g. Kmail can stay in tray and check emails. notify u and do all filtering fob for u including spam filters and so on.
u are just reinventing the wheel and email client itself according to ur last comment.
yeah u are cool , man! i will say thanx for that at least because u made software for linux because u didnt find the equivalent for win* soft.
but it seems it is a great event for u to receive new mail. :)))
i have email client opened all the time. it is notifing me with sound + tray icon.
on the other machine (office one) i have thunderbird (with no tray icon in linux , unfortunately, or i just didnt find the right extension) and it is enough for me to hear "beep" from inside of my computer. also i keep it at another workspace. and the fact that it is opened/working all the time doesnt influent on perfomance of whole system.
p.s.
if u want to leave this notifier as notifier - give up developing. and leave it just notifier. or rename the application :) and add the same quantity of functions as Kmail/thunderbird/etc have :)
good luck:)
i hope u understood my idea

The mere fact that you don't find it useful doesn't mean it's useless.

It might be very handy for some people to be able to check mail headers before downloading the mail from the server. While KMail and other mail clients may support filtering and spam detection, their POP filtering capabilities are quite limited.

I used to use KShowMail but had to abandon that tool because it didn't support SSL. Now I'm hoping KPopAssistant will have it implemented soon.

 small bug

Score 50%

first, I like your app. in the old days, when i was a windows user, i used simplecheck, which was similar to your app.
second, i have a problem, when i try to view some mails. i get the exception from line 1243 'sorry, network error occured retrieving this e-mail'. a bit of investigation showed, that the only difference (to the messages without this problem) i could find was, that these message have more than one recipient in the 'to' line. say user1@addr1, user2@addr2. can you look at this?

Sorry for my late answer. First of all I am very happy you use my app.

The error may be caused by some networking problem, or, - in your case - more probably by some specific charset decoding/encoding. I have to say that this is my worse nightmare in this project : handling specific charsets (.i.e. iso-8551, utf-8, etc.) in different languages. It seems I haven't found the perfect method yet.

Does this problem occur very often or just from time to time ?

Have you tried, eventually, to generate some more locales for your distro ?

Maybe you can try to preview your mail by pushing the "toggle view" button, this could help.


Let me kwnow.

Hi,

thanks for application.

In any case I have thee notes:

1. I'd like to see all messages from all mailboxes in one time (not by clicking on each mailbox)

2. I prefer to open mail with doubleclicking on the mail

3. It can be useful to have possibility make order by clicking to date, name etc.

Thank you and we will see ;)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
