...which reminds me of one issue I've just had: how do you get rid of a 2 MB text attachment? It still qualifies as "to be deleted". Text files are supposed to be small, but there are exceptions...

AHHH, Another real TODO

Allowing deletion/zapping of text attachments *that have filenames* ( IE .. a real attachment )
let me see.

RE: IMAP.. I will look into it but not making *any* promises

Cheers

Wow, was that easy..

FYI Allowing deletion/zapping of <b>text</b> ( text/plain )attachments *that have filenames* ( IE .. a real attachment ) is working now
in ZapAttachment(s), DeleteAll, ZapAl, and DeleteAttachment(s).

Working on IMAP possibility now

Well, that wasn't so easy but it works now hehehe

IMAP support is a go !

I repeat, AttachmentTools <b>can now</b> delete attachments from IMAP messages *and* the new stripped message is still in the IMAP folder !

I am still creating a temp folder in the 'local folders' trash folder tho so its a bit slower than Attachment Tools is when used on non-IMAP folders (unless you are on broadband, in which case it will be fast & I dispise you :wink: ) but IT WORKS now hehe.

Unfortunately, importing an eml file and 'add msg attachment to this folder' still must be done from a local ( to your computer ) folder

"add msg attachment to this folder":
Wouldn't it better to name this feature "import attatched eml to this folder"?

Is the new version (which is now *better than* 110% ;-) ) already released (with zap one/more att.)?

OK guys, nearly there. Attachment Tools has been localized ..

Only thing left to do is test that I have not broken something.

Then I will release ver 0.4.3 to the world.

Yes, I agree ( and secretly hated what I called it in the first place) .

You should get it added to the extension database (if you haven't already) so that it will show up in Quick Manager.

I am glad sboulema is mirroring it cuz my site is down for some unknown ( to me anyway ) reason.

I have been able to get the just the left-hand column for some reason.

Btw, your sig isn't showing up in this thread for some reason.

Guess that was my config problem. I never use a sig and the default must be to have sigs off. . .now I can see them and this thread is twice as long. . .

Btw, what I am saying is that I only get the buttons that lead to the downloads of thunderbird and firefox. . .now it is totally gone

In 0.4.3 is a fault in your settings.xul:

You've forgotten to change

Code: Select all
<!DOCTYPE window SYSTEM "chrome://delattach/content/delattach.dtd">


to

Code: Select all
<!DOCTYPE window SYSTEM "chrome://delattach/locale/delattach.dtd">

BTW: Thank you very much for making it localizable. German version will be ready tomorrow... I recommend for future versions, to seperate the debug-strings from dialog-strings. It's not necessary to translate the debug strings ;-)
