        Release Notes: This release features greatly improved multiple charset support, attachment deletion support in reading messages, file permission modification support in Webdisk, displaying a message with its own charset, multiple global address book support, and URL support in file uploading. It also fixes a problem with unexpected process death because of an aborted piped child, huge memory usage because of improperly handling of a disconnected POP3 server, improperly parsing of DEFAULT_* options, and problems with global address book corruption because of running conversion for more than once.

It also fixes the following problems: the Perl $1 taintness bug in some version of Perl, the problem that some pam modules doen't check the old passwd before changing the passwd, the "application bug: perl5.8.3 has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait()..." warning in the system log on Linux systems, and the "recursive call...,out of memory!" error in the httpd error log.

            Release Notes: This release has the following changes: a new option enable_globalfilter, a learnspam icon, and better support for unofficial charsets. It also fixes the too many zombie processes problem with Perl 5.8.4 or later, the incorrect size and message count summary of folders in some cases, the improperly parsed DEFAULT options in the config file, and the incorrect import/export address book routines that didn't handle fields with comma or multiple lines.

            Re: Vista Issue?
            This turned out to be a setting on my Kaspersky Security Suite. Once I paused Kasperky, the problem with OpenWebMail went away. Now all I have to do is determine which setting it is. :-)

            Vista Issue?
            I have a laptop with Vista and when I try to set the message format to HTML or HTML and Text the HTML code shows up in the message. Also, the HTML toolbar does not show up.

            I've already tried all the settings in OpenWebMAil preferences.

            This isn't a problem with other computers I use which have XP on them. Is this a vista issue or a setting on my laptop?

            Not a happy user
            Nope, I'm not one of those happy OpenWebmail users. I find the documentation incomplete lacking even the simplest of functions.

            This isn't all to bad if there are forums for Openwebmail, there is this mailinglist system but it's harder to use than a Nasa Space Shuttle.

            What's wrong with setting up a PHPBB forum or something?

            I'm almost forced to use another mail client since I can't even get the most basic of questions answered.
