Email Plugin???

Does anyone have a working e-mail plugin? Does the xmail pluging from old still work (it doesn't seem to for me).

Xlobby seems to pretty well be my whole house user interface, but an e-mail plugin would be a great addition.

Why not just launch the app?

because the email should be integrated within xlobby... :)

the old plugin sort of works, try resurrecting the thread and see if you can get it fixed.

OK, I was doing some more testing with the Xmail plug-in from here http://www.xlobby.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4599&p=47426&hilit=xmail#p47426, and have found that this plug-in will work except for one indentifiable bug.

After you go through the alt-F2 plug-in set up process (to allow the plug-in to connect to and grab your e-mail) and populate the xmail.xml database for the first time, you will likley have problems when you go back and re-start Xlobby (I did).

What I found was that the xmail.xml database had a number of occurrences of improper "&" signs that cause the file to be an improper .xml file. Once you manaually strip out the "&" signs, the plug-in behaves as it was originally constructed.

Now, the question becomes, who can modify Mr. Dalibor Lanik's code (he should be asked if it is OK to use his plug-in in V3). I am NO programmer!!!!, just a lowly user.

I shot dalanik an ICQ message....hope he sees it.

The problem i described only happens with some of my e-mail messages. It seems that if the is an "&" sign in say the subject, or the e-mail To line is craps out. When I imported all my mail (maybe 50 emails), it only bombed on about 3-5 emails.
