Friday, September 30th, 2005

I have volunteered my time to help update and complete the documentation for Sylpheed-Claws for the soon-to-be-released v2.0.0. Paul has started a mailing list already. If you are a SC user and want to help out, join up.

Sharper Claws!

Monday, September 5th, 2005

Sylpheed-Claws has hit 1.9.14 and with an astounding amount of updates, fixes, and new goodies! From a UI perspective, it contains three big improvements worth mentioning: Colourisation of quotes, signatures and URIs in Compose window. If you’ve ever read an email that shows you different colours for different ages of quoted text, you’ll realise that […]

Printing Is Coming to SC!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005

After a super job of correcting IMAP, Colin has started work on printing in Sylpheed-Claws. This was perhaps one of the biggest issues in SC and it’s wonderful to see him getting his hands dirty on this. Paul tells me this was the first commit after v1.9.12 (released today) too. Whoo! 😀 Now only if […]

10 Minutes or Less!

Friday, April 15th, 2005

I have noticed that in work hours, I reply to all my business mail within 10 minutes of receiving them. It has not gone into 11th minute since the last 3 days that I started noticing it. That has to be good by some standard.

Upgrade Time

According to Brad Garlinghouse (VP, Communications Products) on Yahoo! Search Blog yesterday, Yahoo! Mail now has three new features: Better Search DomainKeys Implementation DHTML Nothing too surprising or exciting in search features since it was expected after Gmail‘s search within their mail interface. Yahoo! merely seems to equal their feature list for now; only Gmail’s […]

Apache Software Foundation Refuses To Implement Sender ID

Friday, September 3rd, 2004

I just caught it on /. that ASF has refused to implement Sender ID. They’ve written an open-letter to MARID IETF Working Group about it. The current Microsoft Royalty-Free Sender ID Patent License Agreement terms are a barrier to any ASF project which wants to implement Sender ID. We believe the current license is generally […]

InfoWorld is reporting that Microsoft has decided to enforce Sender ID on all email sent to its Hotmail, MSN & email addresses from October 1. Microsoft will begin matching the source of inbound e-mail to the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of e-mail servers listed in that sending domain’s SPF record by Oct. 1. Messages […]

Hotmail’s 2GB & Webmail Wars

Thursday, July 22nd, 2004

According to an article on PC Magazine: Microsoft launched its MSN Hotmail Plus subscription service in 30 markets worldwide today. The upgraded service, as announced in June, offers subscribers, for $19.95 a year in the US, 2GB of storage, the ability to send 20MB attachments, no account expiration, and no graphical advertising. That is 4 […]

Hotmail Updates

Monday, July 19th, 2004

I just ran into two reports on BetaNews about Hotmail. The first reports that in the first moves towards competing in the email business, they have enabled Anti-Virus scanning. Now existing users might remember that they already had a tie-up with McAfee but they have apparently expanded from scanning attachments being downloaded to scanning entire […]
