Manitou-Mail 1.7.0 is released and available to download. The main changes are:

  • The counts of archived messages per tag are now constantly visible in the interface.

  • Outgoing messages can be “sent later”. As detailed in a a previous post, the sending is done by manitou-mdx, so it works even when the user interface is closed.

  • There is now a built-in image viewer for pictures in attachments.

  • The login dialog allows to force an encrypted session with the database.

  • The segmentation of large lists of messages has been improved and exposed through the “Fetch previous/next segment” commands and the “Query selection” dialog box.

  • It is now possible to use an external editor to compose messages.

  • In the database, the cache/staging table mail_status has been obsoleted.

Pre-compiled binaries for Windows and macOs come ready-to-use with Qt-5.5 libraries (including WebKit), and binary packages for Linux Debian 8 and 9 and Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 are also available through the APT repository. Check out the download page.

Please note that the APT key has changed. The signing key has been regenerated with SHA-512 due to SHA-1 being obsoleted. The new key is E330764A.asc.

As always, if upgrading from a previous version, make sure to run the server-side command:

manitou-mgr --upgrade-schema
