Better previews

Tue Apr 03, 2012 1:37 am

Ni Nick,

When you hover your cursor over a subject you see a brief bit of the message in the tooltip. This needs to be a better preview. For one, a lot of people won`t know its there and secondly, the brief preview available isn`t always enough to determine if its junk or not.

Thanks.

Hi Hamasaki

Sorry about that, I'm not sure why I was not notified of your first post.

Anyway, yes I agree it's not obvious that the mouse needs to be moved over the email to show the body. We've almost finished designing a new GUI (the present one doesn't allow for expanding options).

You can get more preview lines by changing the options in the registry/config file
See: http://www.firetrust.com/en/products/ma ... tries-mean

Displays the number of characters used in the email preview when the mouse is moved over the subject
view_body_max=200
# 200 characters is the default but feel free to adjust this to a higher value.

Thanks Nick. Sorry if I sounded a little abrupt there, but it can be frustrating when I see messages not answered for weeks. Like this one actually:

Looking forward to the new GUI.

When will the NEW GUI or new version be out?

Just curious...
