why does pegasus need two spam folders here?

Hi all,
in order to overcome the invisibility of folders carrying names that
range further down in the alphabet, I use prefixes for many
foldernames that I want to keep in my immediate scope, like
#oldstuffmaillist, >satnews etc. 

In the same manner, I renamed the standard 'junk and suspicious mail'
folder to '#junk...' and set that as the destination for sorted-out
spam in pegasus' spamholder setup. Fine, that worked for years now.
The false positives have reached a good low level, so, everything
looked fine. Having that folder in immediate reach facilitates the
finding of the odd false-positive very much. 

The folders that don't carry prefixes here are more for the purpose of
collecting and archiving various maillist content, so, I don't cast an
eye there often but I know it is there. Also fine so far. 

Yesterday, I glanced at those 'basement' folders again - and saw,
consciously for the first time, that there existed a non-#ed 'junk and
suspicious...' folder, well filled with much less spam than useful
content, even some bitterly missed mails which I thought had arrived
in nirvana a long time ago. 

So, it took me some time to sort the contents to their defined
locations, always making sure that I declared those as non-spam.

Finally, the folder was almost empty, and I renamed it to 'old junk'. 

A few minutes later, there was the 'junk and spuspicious...' folder
again, filling up slowly again.

All the time, the other '#junk...' folder exists on and fills
continuously with real spam. 

There is no place in pegasus where I have defined the non-# folder as
a destination for spam. And the mysterious fact is that pegasus uses
both at its own decretion. 

Pegasus 4.41 german version, Win XP. Pegasus serves as my one and only
mail client for all accounts that I use, so I have defined a couple of
identities - all of that working fine since 1998 here. 

So, where is the catch? How can I teach Pegasus to use just and only
the junk folder that I define? Is there some definition in a
configuration file where I can change that behaviour? 

Thanks for your empathy - and maybe some good advice! 

Cheers,
Ulli.

Check your "Content Control" and "Spamhalter" settings for the folder they  
use.

Michael,

thank you so much! Until yesterday, I was not aware of the 'content
control' relevance in this matter, actually, I had never cared about
it all the years - now I mended the destination folder there, and
everything seems fine now. Sheesh. 

Case closed for the time being. 

Cheers,
U.

merging Pegasus mail folders from two PCs?
I had a glitch on my desktop a while back ("windows protection error"), and instead of fixing it, abandoned my desktop for the laptop for three months. Now I've got the desktop working again, and need to merge three months' worth of mail from the laptop with the several years' worth on the desktop. Is there a way to do it?

I use Pegasus Mail to filter E-mail and block spam for FREE, all spam.pnp updates posted here!
I was using Pegasus Mail in the 90's and recently decided to look at it again. The author's web site is http://www.pmail.com and he has continued its development into something incredibly useful. Most amazing of all is that he keeps it free by only selling the documentation.. Anyway, in addition to its neat automatic spam content filter, you can create and utilize custom filters which will in fact filter everything and do so on the server side, if you tell it to. I figured it all out in one night using the HELP INDEX included with Pegasus Mail. The filter file I...

How do I import/transfer old mail folders to Pegasus V4 in Windows XP??
All my correspondence is in my mail folders in an old version of Pegasus. I got a new pc running Windows XP and installed the old hard drive containing all my files as a second drive, but I can't find out how to transfer or import my mail folders into Pegasus V4. Suggestions appreciated. I have recently gone thru the same exercise. Though my older version of Pegasus was not markedly older. I would think twice - or more - about doing this starting with a '3' version of Pegasus for example! In my case, I have Pegasus in C:\Prgram Files & the actual mail data on m...

Using Pegasus Mail from multiple computers; archiving mail folders
I currently use Pegasus Mail for Windows (XP Professional) from my laptop. I put the mail in a root directory c:\Mail. I am thinking of adding a desktop computer and using my existing laptop much less frequently; I would copy over c:\Mail to a drive on the desktop that could be shared, say d:\Mail, and have a few questions: * I know I'd have to edit pmail.ini to point to d:\Mail . * When I am local and able to access d:\Mail, there should be no problem as long as I have only one client open at a time, I believe. But say that I am remote, perhaps on a trip, and want to use Pegas...

Configuring windows withiin Pegasus Mail
On Pegasus Mail 4.12a (version of Jun 19 2003) on Windows 2000 Pro, I used to get 3 windows: - list of messages in New Mail folder - list of folders - window onto whatever message was selected in first window Now I only get first two windows. If I unselect save desktop in Tools>Options>Basic Settings then I only get the first window (although ctrl-L gets me the second) and if I select it I get the first two (provided they were showing on my last session).

Pegasus Mail and Windows administrator privileges
Hi Group I have used Pegasus Mail under Win98 since several years and I'm happy with it. Now I have a new WinXP machine and want to reinstall. I have the following problem: I tried Pegasus v421c. It seems it only works if the user has the Windows administrator privileges (XP Home Edition SP2). Is this the normal behavior ? I am quite surprised with this. Thanks a lot. I am running WinPmail 4.21 with restricted user privileges on Windows 2000 and as a main user with Windows XP Pro without having any problems and changing any settings. I think, it would be most important,...

POPFile (anti-spam) integration for Pegasus Mail
This post is to see how much interest there is in my POPFile integration for Pegasus Mail for Windows, now up and running but still in development. POPFile <http://popfile.sourceforge.net> is quite simply the best personal anti-spam tool I know of, even though it's free. It actually learns how to classify email according to categories you create -- you can use it to just classify spam versus non-spam, or more sophisticated categories like spam, business, and personal. Best of all, it's dead simple to use -- no need to worry about arcane filtering rules -- just tell it ...

Clear Junk Mail Folder on Exiting Pegasus ?
I would like to clear down Mail older than xx days old from the 'Junk or Suspicious Mail' folder when exiting Pegasus (v4.21c).

Windows Live SMTP access with Pegasus Mail
As of today, Windows Live Hotmail allows free Hotmail account access via SMTP. The server information is: smtp.live.com:587 The MS clients (Outlook (prior to 2007), Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Windows Live Mail) reportedly work by setting the client to use SSL. I have tested this with MS Outlook Express 6, and it works. MS Outlook 2007 reportedly works using TLS. I have not tested this, because I don't have a copy of MS Outlook 2007. Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19, and SeaMonkey 1.1.14 both also work, using TLS. However, setting 'smtp.live.com:587' with START...
