- Moved "Show Smilie Faces" to profile preferences.

- I removed the "graphics" section of the skin editor.

- Added a "auto refresh delay" to profile preferences. This is the time that the "status" page shows after you leave a message.

- Stickymail trashcan and sent mail folder messages expiration should work now.

- Many internal fixes and corrections.

>>- Stickymail trashcan and sent mail folder messages expiration should work now.

Not sure if i have understood it correct, the maximum time you can have a "Sent sticky" in the "Sent" folder is 14 days?

If so i would really like to extend that time range, something like 365 would be better, due to the change i lost all my sent mails, which i would really like to have taken a copy of.

Yes if possible Brett,

14 days max is a bit short.

also is it still possible to retrieve the old sent messages so that we can save them? Same with lazerzubb, my sent messages are gone.

thanks.

You can move messages to other folders. You can create other folders. You can forward mail in mass to yourself. You do have options.

Before I fixed the bug, I checked the age of messages in the sentmail folder on stickymail boxes. There were over 20k msgs setting in peoples sent mail folder that were over six months old.

I just want to get away from this using the sent mail folder as an archive - it was always intended to be a 'temp' folder and not a long term email system.
