There are three options in the General tab, as shown above in fig 10.1.
- The first is to choose which tab you want eMailTrackerPro to start on. This
can be either the main welcome screen, the my inbox tab or the my trace reports tab.
- The second option is a check box, which when checked will start eMailTrackerPro
in the systray when your machine boots.
- The third option is a check box, which when checked will minimize eMailTrackerPro
to the systray instead of the start bar.
My Inbox Tab
There are numerous options for the my inbox tab. There are shown above in
1) The first option is to choose the default action for eMailTrackerPro.
This means you can set eMailTrackerPro to either receive or receive and clean
your mail ever 'x' minutes.
For example if it was set to "Automatically
receive mail ever 3 minutes" then eMailTrackerPro would check your default
mail boxes every three minutes. If it was set to "Automatically receive
and then clean mail every 3 minutes" then eMailTrackerPro would check
your default mail boxes every three minutes, then once the mail has been received
it would remove any email marked to be deleted.
You can set it to never automatically
2) The second option is how many lines to get for the mail preview window.
The more lines that are received the longer the mail will take to receive.
third option is how many tabs to open when tracing a certain number of emails.
For example if "don't open any" is chosen then no matter how many emails you
select to be traced from the my inbox view they will all be traced in the my
trace reports tab.
If this option was set to "3 emails" then if when you trace
one, two or three emails they will be traced in new tabs. If you were to trace
4 emails when this option was set to 3 emails then all four would be traced from
the my trace reports tab.
Even if traces take place in new tabs they will still be stored in the my
trace reports section.
4) The fourth option is to instruct eMailTrackerPro how to deal with
unused blacklist items. This entry is in days. Note if the number of days entered
is 0 then eMailTrackerPro will never remove blacklisted entries.
For example if this was set to "90" then any email address that is in your
blacklist and is not matched to any incoming email for 91 days will be removed.
5) The fifth option tells eMailTrackerPro how to act when resizing the window.
If this option is checked then the columns will shrink and expand to make sure
they always fit in view. If unchecked this will not happen.
