    If you load up a backup database, do you get the same problem?
    Try importing into a fresh database first. Do you get your folders correctly?

    Also consider, doogiePIM import of bookmarks won't replicate URLs. So if you had a bookmark URL in two folders at the same time in your other browsers, doogiePIM will only import the first one. This could be a custom setting added to the next update, if required.

    As always, many thanks for reporting this and I hope we can sort it out for you.

    @mikeinnc I see in an earlier reply (9 Aug 2017) that you say the Home Page refreshes at midnight

    I'm still looking into this issue. The Home Page should refresh at midnight under normal circumstances. If you hit Refresh manually, it will always take your local time. I'm not sure why this isn't working for you, but as I said, I have an Australian test machine running to test this on.

    Thanks for the report and I hope I have good news for you soon.

    Chris posted in Journal order.

    There is an option in the setting to automatically sort by various details. This automatic option will apply to all items.

    For finer control, you can use the icons or context menu commands to move a folder or journal entry [Up] or [Down].

    I'll work on selective folder's sort order in a future version which will give a variety of sort options for each folder's children, not just one setting for all.

    There's no mass send feature and unlikely there will ever be one.

    I would try a mail send service, such as mailchimp.com Being a dedicated sender (for free) you don't risk marking your email server as abuse. The last time I used them (over a year ago) they were free for up to 2000 recipients.

    Good luck with your campaign.

    The Plain Text view I mean is here:
    -image-

    This option displays the plain text part of the message, if any. I plan to add further text filters to this menu so it becomes a faster way to filter the message, thereby turning it into a more readable state.

    The message you get "View this in a browser" is actually written by the sender of the message and isn't part of doogiePIM. Some use this so they can show you a nicer layout for their "advert".

    You are correct in assuming all I wish on users is to be safer when browsing their email.

    doogiePIM doesn't have the ability to download IMAP Folders (as yet). ;)

    This is a feature, to support IMAP properly with "always online" folders and messages in a future version.
    Keep watching this space :)

    On a second issue, it is better to use POP3 when using Unicode characters for the current version of doogiePIM (v2). The messages will decode better.

    In addition to help support of this, I've gone ahead and signed up for the company you mentioned. I shall look further into their messages I receive. I'll use their messages as evidence to provide a better rendering of their email.

    The more I know, the more we grow.

    Many thanks for the further observations and for the sample message.

    Be advised, the following is my opinion and doesn't reflect any attempt to force my vision or interpretation on to you or others.

    A great deal of the problem is to do with the complicated construction of the email message and the image source. It is important the images (jpg, bmp, png) are served from a valid secure source (https) and that the construction of the email doesn't include any tactics to hide content (hidden CSS etc). If it does then doogiePIM will tend not to render that content. You get this with some advertising type email messages.

    Also consider the number of remote images in the message. The sample you sent to me contained over 50 images from many different sources that were used in constructing a jigsaw of a single page. This may be acceptable for displaying on a public web page, albeit highly uneconomical, but not for an email message that is used for private communication. As doogiePIM is attempting to concentrate on securing your data and privacy I wouldn't like to let through an email message that lacks consideration for bandwidth, privacy and security.

    If you switch to plain text only, you should be able to understand the message without CSS styles and remote images.

    Finally, consider the effect of remote images. Upon downloading and showing an image in a message, you are telling someone else, (the server the image is stored on), you've opened the email message. Again, acceptable for public pages but not for personal correspondence.

    I appreciate doogiePIM has flaws and needs be enhanced further with better rendering of messages and my goal is to realise this as soon as I'm able to find ways of doing this without compromising our privacy.

    I'm very happy you've considered doogiePIM and hope you continue to use the features and sections sans Messages.

    Respectfully yours,
    Chris
