It is supposed to, yes. Please try it out and post your results. The Wx version (0.45) works fine in Windows 10.

Hi Mike, will this work on Windows 10?
General Discussion / Available now: Wx 4.0 version, TLS 1.3
« Last post by Mike on September 03, 2018, 11:07:59 pm »
There is a WxWidgets 4.0.2 version being tested, including a working Windows binary. I am also using OpenSSL 1.1.1 and have confirmed that TLS 1.3 works. This is available for download now.

If anyone has more than 10,000 keys (as shown by Repair/Check) in an account, the Repair Account function in version 0.44 will fail. That is an easy fix (and a dumb mistake) and is fixed in version 0.45 which is available now.
Support / Re: GPG 2.2 passphrase

Did it ask you to create a passphrase (GPG popup) when you created the key?
The thing about GPG 2.x is it does not let me do anything with the passphrase. It pops up and asks whenever it feels like it, and returns an error when it doesn't get a passphrase.
Support / GPG 2.2 passphrase

Feeling silly. Installed CM on Kubuntu 18.04; GPG version 2.2.4.

During Easy Setup, CM does not ask for a password. In another thread, Mike wrote:
The password field is supposed to be grayed out. Proceed with the key setup.
GPG 2.1 handles its own keys and therefore does not use the password field.
so I went ahead. But if I then click [New Msg], I get the popup saying "Please enter the passphrase to unlock the OpenPGP secret key" which I obviously don't have.

If I then leave that password field empty and hit OK, there are no error messages but also no message composition window.

I tried both confidantmail_0.44-1.deb and confidantmail_0.44-2.deb with the same results.

I'm clueless (as well as incompetent... :-[). Any help is much appreciated.

If you run the wxpython demo ( do you get the same problem?
This does sound like a wxpython library problem. If you have CM up please contact me in CM.

Hi Mike, is there another solution to this issue? Dave's workaround doesn't seem to do anything for me.

The wx 4.0.0 port works pretty well now. I got rid of the deprecations and all the GUI functions seem to work. I should be able to upgrade CM to 4.0.0 as soon as distributions start including it.
Development / WxPython 4.0.0 porting
« Last post by Mike on October 27, 2017, 12:14:38 am »
WxPython 4.0.0 is now available a Windows package, and I am working on porting CM to it. I am hoping for a more reliable Rich Text Editor. Some people have reported problems with the editor in

There are a lot of little changes where things have been moved around. So far I have it sending and receiving; now I have to hunt down various bugs and fix all the "deprecated method" messages. At the moment the Linux distributions are not shipping 4.0.0, so once it's working I will release a source package and possibly a Windows package for anyone who wants to try it.

Yes, the attachments are files in the zip archive preceded by an underscore. The underscore is removed when you extract the attachment. It is also possible to forward a message with the original sender signature intact, by adding the message zip and sig into the outer zip. There is a spec PDF on the download page that fully explains the format and protocol. You seem to be into this stuff, so please post your opinions.

I have had an email exchange with one well-known open source guru, and that's exactly what he wanted: a scriptable toolkit. It's possible but would require something more complex than command line invocation. I am not sure what the best type of interface to provide is. CM is already divided into a client agent and a GUI, and I have several automatic clients which drive the client agent. One of those is a mailing list server, and another is a file server.

I can definitely add a "show me text by default" option, and all messages are required to contain text. HTML and XML are optional.
