Ver 44051, December 7, 2016 Fixed bug that caused a password longer than about 55 characters to be sent to an SMTP server as multiple lines by the kSendFile or kSendText function. Fixed bug that caused some email messages to be marked as read when the brief (h) flag was used with the IMAP (4) flag and the kGetMail function. The bug caused the first messages to remain unmarked but all following messages were marked as read. Per the IMAP protocol, messages should not be marked as read when the brief flag is used. Fixed bug in the kGetMail function that caused random data to be written to the specified output file when the '4h' flag combination was used in the 'flags' parameter. Ver 44050, September 14, 2016 Fixed bug in base 64 encoding that caused a long user name and password combination to be sent as two encoded lines. The IMAP protocol requires that user name and password responses be on a single base 64 encoded line. Ver 44049, January 21, 2015 Fix buffer overrun problem that sometimes causes a generic system error message when using base 64 encoding. Extender can now provide more error information about severe system errors in both the wwwbatch.ini file and the WinBatch 'More Error Info' error message dialog. Ver 44048, July 11, 2012 Fix an attachment mixup problem in the kGetMail function that ocurred when a single email had both multiple attachments and alternate text. ver 44047, June 15, 2011 Fixed process heap corruption problem in the kGetMail function that caused the extender to occasionally report a 1004 unknown system error. Ver 44046, February 07, 2011 Fixed bug that made the 'kDeletePop3' function unaccessible. Ver 44045, January 19, 2011 Removed restrictions on the length of text parameters passed to the kDest function. Ver 44044, January 05, 2011 Added a sixth optional 'connection security' string parameter to the kInit function. If specified, this optional parameter causes the extender to use either the Transport Layer Security (TLS) or its predecessor, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), cryptographic protocol for privacy and authentication when communicating with an SMTP, POP3, or IMAP server. The parameter accepts a blank string (""), "ssl", or "tls" as a value. For most servers you can use "tls" when you need to securely connect to a server. The "ssl" option is provide for compatibly with legacy server implementations that may not support the newer TLS protocol. A blank string is equivalent to omitting the parameter entirely and indicates that no TLS or SSL protocol is to be used with the connection. In most cases you will not need to specify a port number in the function's fifth parameter when using "tls" or "ssl" as the extender automatically uses the default TLS or SSL port for both sending and receiving email. Fixed a bug that prevented the kExtra function's third parameter from being used as the domain name in the HELO EHLO messages. This version of the extender requires WinBatch 2004b or newer and Windows 2000 or newer. Ver 44043, May 25, 2007 Fixed a problem with iso encoded Base64 header string. Ver 44042, Mar 27, 2006 Removed a stray debug error message introduced in the 44041 version. Ver 44041, Mar 17, 2006 Fixed a problem where doing an IMAP4 PURGE would redownload the entire contents of the purged mailbox. Ver 44040 July 28, 2005 Added ability to override domain info used in the HELO and EHLO SMTP protocol messages as parameter 3 of the kExtra function. If paramter 3 of kExtra is not blank and is not 0 then it will be used. Generally it should be a hint to the mail server about what mail domain to use. Ver 44039 April 14, 2005 Fixed a possible bug introduced in the 10034 version that caused a crash when trying to get header information with IMAP4 in some cases. Hopefully this is a benign fix. Ver 44038 Mar 31, 2005 Fixed an issue where if multiple file attachments followed a multipart/alternative message block (i.e. message has both text/html and text/plain version) then the names of the attachments were not applied to the correct attachment. The Postie extender has been updated to a new format to allow more descriptive function names and additional parameters. This version of the extender requires WinBatch 2004B or newer to run. This extender will not work on WinBatch 2004A or older. In addition, so as not to affect existing scripts using a previous version of this extender, the extender DLL has been renamed to include a 44I in the DLL name instead of a 34I. Old and new versions of this extender can *usually* co-exist side by side. To use the new extender with old scripts and with WinBatch 2004B or newer you will need to change the AddExtender line in the script to reflect the new DLL name. e.g. AddExtender("wwpst34i.dll") should become AddExtender("wwpst44i.dll") Version 10037 13 May 2004 Further fix to the 10035 version. Attempting to save the Content-Type information even at least the extract flag is set even if there is no target file name specified as of yet. Version 10036 6 May 2004 Fixed problem in marking IMAP4 email messages for Delete Version 10035 22 April 2004 Added feature to accept Content Type: line without ;name= parameter as long as some name has been assigned to the attachment prior to the Content Type: line. Version 10034 25 March 2004 Fixed a bug caused by malformed content partitions and the Netsky viri. Version 10033 15 July 2003 Fixed "Date Sent" header to compensate for daylight savings time. Fixed kGetMail "d" option to not download entire message and just delete the message. Note "d" option is multually exclusive to all other options Version 10032 04 Mar 2003 ????? Version 10031 28 Feb 2003 Fixed problem where machines that do not have "NameServer" or "DhcpNameServer" configured in the registry, was resulting in a DOS box popping up and running IPCONFIG /ALL to parse that information. The command window should no longer appear on these particular machines. Version 10030 19 Feb 2003 Re-enabled a number of options, e.g., the "h" flag for kSendText/kSendFile and "n" for nntp posting, which were unintentionally disabled in the newly migrated v10027-v10029 versions of WIL Postie. Version 10029 07 Feb 2003 Added back in the Aug 17, 1999 fix for CGI incompatibility problem. Version 10028 06 Feb 2003 kGetMail now correctly saves text/plain messages to an outputfile. The "h" flag saves the first line of each message body to the outputfile. The "f" flag saves the full message body to the outputfile. The "r" flag saves the full message body and the headers to the outputfile. Version 10027 28 January 2003 Ported the October 2002 Postie source code from Infradig into the WIL Postie code. Added ESMTP support to Postie. Use the "e" flag with kSendText and kSendFile. Note that userid and password are required for ESMTP posting to authenticate. Do not specify userid and password for plain SMTP posting. Added CRAM-MD5 authentication for ESTMP and IMAP4. Changed allocation of memory in kGetMail so now memory is allocated dynamically, and download sizes are no longer limited. Now the "Holding buffer size exceeded" message should no longer appear. Added "f" (full headers) flag to the kGetMail function. Version 10026 2 January 2002 Fixed kGetMail so that port number can be reset to the port thru which the user wants to receive the downloaded email messages. Fixed priority settings in kSendText and kSendFile. In v10026, when neither the "1" (high priority) or "2" ("low priority") flags are set, the default "normal" flag gets set, and, in so doing, the "X-Priority" and "Importance" headers now are correctly set to "normal" (these headers weren't showing up for the case when neither the 1 or 2 flags were set in prior versions of the extender.) Version 10025 18 December 2001 Added 'q' option to automatically decode headers with ?charset?q?text?=content. Version 10024 3 December 2001 Fixed kGetMail delete flag so that it is reset to 0 after each kGetMail call, so that subsequent kGetMail calls do not continue to delete POP3 email messages. Version 10023 2 October 2001 Fixed kManageImap so that it did not purge all Inbox messages when used in the same script as kGetMail with the delete flag set. Version 10022 31 May 2001 Added more fixes to kManageImap4 for purge operation, which was GPFing because sufficient memory had not been allocated to return the message string. Version 10021 24 May 2001 Fixed a bug introduced by the fix to kManageImap4. A little cut and paste operation went awry, but now the mail messages are again getting returned to the message buffer in kGetMail. Version 10020 16 May 2001 Fixed the kManageImap4 function, which was GPFing when purging large mailboxes. The memory allocation for this function has been increased to 640K. Version 10019 26 Apr 2001 Added "d" option for dsn (request delivery status notification) & "m" option for mdn (request mail disposition notification) features to kSendText and kSendFile functions. Added "c" option to kGetMail to return a receipt when retrieving mail from a server that has either a dsn or mdn request in it. Version 10018 16 Apr 2001 Made another change to kGetMail to clear the delete flag. Version 10017 13 Apr 2001 Fixed problem wherein if you set the delete flag in kGetMail and then ran subsequent kGetMails in a loop NOT setting the delete flag, the delete flag never actually got cleared. Version 10016 16 March 2001 Added error checking for the following illegal specifications: pat|nopat - Illegal to have both pat and no pat; they're mutually exclusive. pat| - Don't follow pat with a vertical bar. |"" - Illegal to have null string for nopat. Version 10015 20 Feb 01 Changed X-mailer text to: "X-Mailer: WIL Postie Extender www-winbatch-com" so that the header info doesn't act like a link. Fixed Postie so that email addresses starting with '!', e.g., !firstname.lastname@example.org, will now be processed. Version 10014 Fixed Postie so that tabs in messages, attachments, and headers are not converted to spaces. Version 10013 Dec 12, 2000 The POSTIE extender has been updated to a few format to allow more descriptive function names and additional parameters. This version of the extender requires WinBatch 2001A or newer to run. This extender will not work on WinBatch 2000C or older. In addition, so as not to affect existing scripts using a previous version of this extender, the extender DLL has been renamed to include a 34I in the DLL name instead of a 32I. Old and new versions of this extender can *usually* co-exist side by side. To use the new extender with old scripts and with WinBatch 2001A or newer you will need to change the AddExtender line in the script to reflect the new DLL name. e.g. AddExtender("WWPST32I.DLL") should become AddExtender("WWPST34I.DLL") Version 10012 Nov 27, 2000 Fixed Postie so that the "\" backslash character is not stripped off in text of To, From, Subject, Msgs, Files, etc. Version 10011 Oct 10, 2000 Dispensed with the limitation on 255 length limitation in parameters in kSendText, kSendFile and kDest. Version 10010 Sept 12, 2000 Added "t" (-text) option to kGetMail to allow for text attachments to be written in native mode (the default setting is binary mode.) Version 10009 May 24, 2000 kSendText/kSendFile now work during daylight savings time. In previous versions, all messages sent via these functions were showing up with a time stamp that is the sending computer's time +1 hour. Version 10008 Mar 7, 2000 Removed IMAP4 posting from source code and help files. From RFC 2060: IMAP4rev1 does not specify a means of posting mail; this functionality is handled by a mail transfer protocol such as [SMTP]. Version 10007 Mar 6, 2000 Attachments now get CRLFs added to end of lines. Version 10006 Feb 23, 2000 kStatusInfo now returns the status of the previous statement executed and any error information. Version 10005 Feb 21, 2000 Added base64 encoding of Subject, To, and From headers along with the message body. Version 10004 Feb 14, 2000 Added kExtra function, to specify charset and base64 encoding. Attachments now get written out to the current working directory regardless of whether or not the second parameter, outputfile, is specified. See help file for details about how attachments are handled when using the "raw" and "headers" options. Version 10003 Sep 7, 1999 New version of Postie extender posted. This posting of Postie publishes the procedures that allow you to purge the postings that you are potentially perusing. Version 10002 Aug 17, 1999 New version of Postie posted. Works with WebBatch now. Version 10001 Aug 16, 1999 Released Postie v10001, which increases the second parameter in kSendText (the message body) to an unlimited size (only limited by your machine's memory). Version 10000 August 13, 1999 03:51 PM Initial Release. *** NEW POSTIE EXTENDER v10000*** The Ultimate Internet Email extender. Sends and receives POP3, IMAP4, and NNTP (newsgroup) email. Able to send and receive mime or uuencoded attachments.
