CTDATA Web Mail Upgraded to Handle HTML Messages Better

Dave Aiello wrote, "Users of CTDATA's Web Mail Service please note that we upgraded from Endymion MailMan Standard Version 3.0.20 to MailMail Standard Version 3.0.30. The primary effect that this will have on you is that you will be able to read more types of messages that contain HTML than you could before."

"Although this upgrade will solve a number of display issues, it will expose other problems with the appearance of some messages. Now that the Web Mail service can handle more types of HTML-based mail, you will be able to open some types that retain the bulk of their embedded graphics on a remote server. Since we run our Web Mail over SSL, the secure server will not display those remote graphics for you. There is no planned work-around for this."

"Remember that we operate this Web Mail service as a convenience to our mobile users, and not as a substitute for your full-featured mail reader."

Dave Aiello continued:

Users with an interest in technical issues may be interested in the Endymion Mailman Product Revision History which discusses the bug fixes and new features between 3.0.20 and 3.0.30. We were not aware of the periodic changes that had been rolled out, and we will attempt to monitor their site more closely in the future.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions. We would greatly appreciate any bug reports. Please send them to webmaster@ctdata.com.
