As a long-time user of Argosoft Mail Server, I am very concerned that support for this software appears to be slim to none now.  I don't want to continually bug Archie for issues that I come across, the most recent being proper operation of the IMAP protocol, and how it relates to third-party webmail systems.    For example, Argo does not support IMAP SORT, and sometimes has issues responding to the proper commands to display e-mail messages in third party clients, such as Afterlogic Webmail and RainLoop webmail.

To confirm there are bugs in Argo, I have installed hMail Server on another system, and experience none of the issues I have with Argosoft Mail.  However, it would be a nightmare to migrate accounts and messages from Argosoft Mail at this point (while technically possible, it would take a lot of time, with the risk of lost or jumbled messages very high).  So, I am hoping against hope that Archie comes out with his "new version" that is supposed to help with SquirrelMail, and perhaps that will fix the issues I am having with other mail clients.

If anyone has ever experienced issues with:

- IMAP message order (example - messages in Inbox dated June 1 and July 2.  Delete them both.   Then, restore the July 2 message, followed by the June 1... the Inbox will show them in the order of restoration, NOT in original chronological order).
- "Bad Path" errors when using 3rd Party webmail
- Slow parsing of a relatively small mailbox, even when using SQL and on a relatively FAST server (Quad-Xeon, 4GB RAM, Windows 2008 R2)

(Note that I have tried both using SQL and SQL Lite, and the same issues persist for both)

.... please reply here or e-mail me at joe - at -

No, it is not dead, and I will be back soon...

I am not sure I can help you with 3rd party Webmail.  I recommend Squirellmail, or native web interface, but, about the order...  What exactly do you mean when you are referring to "restoring" messages?

Using any 3rd party webmail, Squirrel Mail included, if I DELETE A MESSAGE FROM 2 MONTHS AGO and then UNDELETE the message (drag it back to Inbox, for example), it ends up with the correct date but at the TOP of the message list.

I had discussed other issues with you in the thread about your Webmail Interface.
