Gossamer Mail 2.0.1 Released!

We're happy to announce that Gossamer Mail 2.0.1 is now available for download. This version addresses many of the problems people were having, plus adds some new features.

Users who are upgrading, please be sure to backup your MySQL database and Gossamer Mail installation before installing! If you are unsure about upgrading, contact info@gossamer-threads.com to have us do it for a nominal charge.

Changes in 2.0.1 include:

+ = improvement; - = bug fix

2.0.1 - June 22, 2001
+ Added a shut off message in Setup->Misc that allows admin to shut
down system and display a nice error message. Uses new disabled.html
+ Added <%reason%> tag to bounced messages saying why message was bounced.
+ Added Purge Message feature that lets the admin remove messages based
on search results.
+ Moved email header and footer to be per template set. Users new
email_footer.htm, email_footer.txt, email_header.txt templates.
+ Added Empty Folder to admin. This allows the admin to empty all
messages in a folder in one click (for both user and undeliverables).
+ Outgoing footer that is added by the admin is now parsed and has normal
template tags available.
+ New user option Character Set in Compose screen. This allows users to
set the character set for outgoing emails.
+ Outgoing emails are now from "FirstName LastName" <email_address>, not
just email address.
+ New admin option in Setup->Misc that lets you set what template set is
the default, if there is no t= passed in.
+ The email templates have been now moved into the templates folder so you
can have different welcome messages based on the template set.
+ The mass mailer can now send attachments.
+ You can now enable/disable spell checker suggestions, it's an option in the
.prefs file.
+ For large user purges, a progress bar was added to prevent browser timeouts.
It's highly recommended you use the shutdown option while doing a large purge.
+ Support for directly parsing mbox files.
+ Added a view source to email in the admin area
+ Added an alias mail import script
