You can insert a table or import csv into a table.
Happy holidays to all!
If it's not already in the works, would highly suggest a scheduled backup mechanism.
As a follow up, I created another database and started downloading email once again. While attempting to create a password DPIM did this:
It occurred multiple times and never responded. I then created yet another database and immediately changed the password without incident.
I think I'm going to step away for a bit before trying yet again to retrieve email via the Google export (for which I just received a download link).
thank you for the reply and way forward. I will give the Google export a go and report back.
DPIM offers a lot to like; I hope you continue to make it better.
DPIM is loaded on my laptop, so no USB issues to worry about.
That said... I should have made a backup. That's on me; I won't make that mistake again.
As suspected, creating a new database requires downloading mail from GMail... Again... All 13,000+ emails.
Last time it took almost 20 hours over two days of continuous monitoring and engagement with DPIM to download all those emails because DPIM limits autocheck to every 5 minutes. DPIM doesn't even provide an option to download the most recent emails first; DPIM starts with the oldest first, in approximately 300 email chunks, then will slow down to ONE. EMAIL. AT. A. TIME.
I'm not so sure the effort is worth it at this point, especially given the emails imported indicate they were received today and don't default to the date/time they were actually received in GMail. That makes no sense to me. In addition, the download process doesn't even respect GMail assigned folders or tags, turning the messages panel into one big message dumping ground requiring review of EVERY. SINGLE. MESSAGE. to sort into the proper subfolder.
Outlook pst import capability would be awesome about now, especially if DPIM respected Outlook's folders...
Is there even a way to attempt to import data, any data, from one DPIM database to another? Or do I have to reenter everything manually? Again? I'm not so sure this part is worth the effort either.
And just for fun, the newly created database indicates I've been signed in a while...
I thought DPIM would help me streamline and work more efficiently. I thought DPIM would work for me. Backups notwithstanding, I thought wrong.
I'm not sure what's on your DPIM to-do list, but addressing email issues would be a much-welcomed priority.
When selecting either Compact or Repair database, the progress bar immediately appears at 18% then freezes DPIM and shows (not responding) in the progressbar popup window title. In addition, duration displayed on popup never goes past 0 seconds.
Note I have actually tried to uninstall and reinstall DPIM. It didn't help.
For some reason, DPIM stopped downloading GMail about two weeks ago. I changed zero settings in either GMail or DPIM. I am able to send email from DPIM, but unable to receive any into DPIM. When it checks, it quickly flashes the following message after showing the usual "Connecting to pop.gmail.com" with timer: "Examining existing 296 on server..."
Here are my DPIM settings:
Receiving messages: POP3
User Name: correct
Uses SSL (check)
Leave message (check)
Include this (check)
What about a custom tab with custom fields for each existing type?
