I'm creating this new topic for DreamMail, not because this promising email client is unbeknownst at TPFC, but for it to have an official forum topic for easy gathering of config tips and other general info now spread hither and tither... so, here goes:

    Re: Some Options appear as ????????? (Translation missing?) / Post by robertcollier4 » Sat May 25, 2013 7:19 pm
    [http://forum.dreammail.eu/viewtopic.php?p=49142#p49142]

    The Resource.en file that comes with DreamMail4692_Green.rar (downloaded from http://www.dreammail.eu/intl/en/download.html) is incomplete and is missing many entries.

    I fixed the problem of the missing entries in above screenshots by switching to another langauge, deleting Resource.en and then changing back to English. Then DreamMail prompted me that it could not find Resource.en and if I wanted to re-download. I said yes - DreamMail then redownloads the proper version of Resource.en that does not have the omissions shown in the screenshots above.

    The Resource.en file included in DreamMail4692_Green.rar available for download on this site needs to be updated and fixed.

    Not portable - reg keys written for KSEdit Control / Post by robertcollier4 » Sat May 25, 2013 4:31 pm
    [http://forum.dreammail.eu/viewtopic.php?t=17710]

    The following registry keys were created by DreamMail. While this is minor - this makes DreamMail technically not 100% "portable" as by portable software standards.

    If absolutely needed to interface with the IE HTML Viewer Edit Controls - it would be nice if DreamMail would create the registry entries at startup and then remove them at application exit - which is what PortableApps.com launchers do. An option could be provided for "true portable mode" - meaning there should be 0 registry changes left behind on the system when the application has exited.

I tried to access the European DreamMail webpage today and found this message instead: :roll:

    END OF SUPPORT

    Hello,

    I have been supporting DreamMail for almost 8 years, but as you may
    know, I am not the developer. I created DreamMail Europe Community
    website, because I thought DreamMail was one of the best email clients.
    So I used to spend some time translating into French and creating this
    website and forum.

    But now, it's been more than a year I have no reply from Zeng Xiquan,
    and I cannot continue supporting this software without him. So I decided
    to end this adventure, and move forward. So, I will *NOT* reply to
    future emails, and this page will disappear soon.

    Also, a vulnerability has been found, and a Proof of Concept is
    available here
    :

    http://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/27805/ (thanks to loneferret)

    I receive spams with trying to use this exploit now, so you MUST change
    your email software.

    There are many email software available (Thunderbird, Opera Mail, ...),
    so you can check one of these to get support.

    This community website is now over, so do not blame me, but I cannot
    continue this.

    BUT, I will let the forum available, so you can continue to ask question
    and help others. You can access it here:

    http://forum.dreammail.eu/

    Thank you and see you on new projects.

    Clément

Considering that even on the Chinese DreamMail homepage the latest version (v4.6.9.2) was released in 2012-02-20, it looks to me that unless something happens pretty soon, this may well be the end of the line for DreamMail (at least outside of China)...

What a sad state of affairs, yet another highlight in the forever predicted demise of the desktop email client -- which I still refuse to accept, let it be noted. :(

And we are the real travelers? Wow! I didn't even know that! Would you be so kind and teach me Russian (without occupying my country like before) so I can enter?
Straight to the point: what's DreamMail got to do with your contest?
I wish you were banned, but still, С новым годом!
Sincerely, Administrator of "my living room".

DreamMail (the web-site is in Chinese) at version 5.16.1004.1018 (Softpedia has also reviewed this update- there are new screen-shots- compare them with those of Portable DreamMail version 4.6.9.2).

Direct Download Link for the installer:

Name: dm5_setup5.16.1004.1018.exe
File Size: 17704210 Byte(s) (16.88 MB)
Modified Date: 2016-04-18 05:28
Version: 5.16.1004.1018
MD5: fdd21002d68f5d1e34041c65f24e080b

CRC32: c365c3f7
VirusTotal analysis - 0 / 54

Who released the portable package of version 4? The original developer? The European Community? Someone else?

Has anyone tried the latest release? Is there a procedure to make DreamMail version 5 portable?

Edit

It turned out that there was a newer version of DreamMail- 5.16.1006.1001:

Direct Download Link for the installer:

Name: dm5_setup5.16.1006.1001.exe
File Size: 17580151 Byte(s) (16.77 MB)
Modified Date: 2016-06-01 09:41
Version: 5.16.1006.1001

SHA256: d1ed045ccb923c32c7fb411f294d2c9a693571d0d5c3953cd024a5cbbf1d5b98
CRC32: 56a00686
VirusTotal analysis - 0 / 54

I extracted the installer (version 5.16.1004.1018) and did a brief testing- it seems that DreamMail is portable but not stealth (C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\DreamMail5\Log- empty folder).

Some strings are not translated to English. The default interface is Ribbon but one can switch to Classic, this operation needs restart.
