What's New
What's New in PopTray 3.0
New features and enhancements added since version 2.1.

Some of the most significant changes are:
  • XP Look
    All toolbars and buttons now look more like Windows XP applications. All icons are true color (including the tray icon). The PopTray controls now also support XP themes.
  • Plug-ins
    PopTray 3.x now supports plug-ins. These are DLLs copied into your plugins directory for more functionality in PopTray. PopTray 3.0 supports two types of plugins: Protocol and Notify. Example plugins (like IMAP4, POP3SSL, Hotmail) are available for download from the PopTray website.
  • Attachments
    The preview screen now has proper support for attachments. It will list them with icons, and you can save them to disk.
  • White List / Black List
    Quickly list your friends and enemy email address. Messages from anyone in the black list will be deleted (or marked as spam) without you having to create a rule. Mail from people in the white list will be protected against auto-deletion.
  • Customizable Toolbars
    There are three fully customizable toolbars (mail,accounts,rules). Use drag-and-drop to add and remove buttons from the toolbar.
  • Options new look
    The options screen has been redesigned with a tree-view to break the options into logical divisions.
  • New Options
    The following new options have been added:
    • Remember viewed Messages - Poptray will remember when you've viewed a message and save the IDs to disk so it will be saved even after quiting the program.
    • Quick Checking - Quick Checking has been improved a lot. With this option only new message headers will be downloaded.
    • Advanced Show Info - This will popup a info window showing all new messages since your last check. Also show a summary of all your accounts, and includes buttons to quickly run your email client or ignore the new mail.
    • Hide Viewed Messages - This is handy for people the leave their messages on the server and don't want the PopTray window cluttered with old messages.
    • Don't Check between - Specify the hours that you want to automatically disable checking in PopTray.
    • Retrieve Body while Checking - Usefull when you have fast connection. The complete body can be checked by the rules, and also external Bayesian filters can analize your message body.
  • Command-line Options
    PopTray now supports calling actions from the command-line for powerful scheduling options.
