Author/Date bug: converting old mail3 format
06/11/2017 10:42am
I imported an older mail store (mail3) (circa 2015) and the To field and Internet Header are both blank in the Sent folder. When I loaded it, it prompted to confirm if I wanted to convert the file as a few fields were of the wrong size.

Since I'm trying to find an email that I sent to a specific person, this bug is defeating my searching efforts.

Short term, can you install an old copy of Scribe that reads/writes that folder format natively?

I'll have a look at the upgrade process at some point.

And by "install" I mean not over your existing install, but somewhere temporary.

Okay, I was able to fish out the information that I was looking for. I had to install v1.90 Test6 (thanks for keeping the old versions lying around).
I'll keep the old version installed for the time being, in case of more nostalgia fits. :-)

Converting the old mail3 format works now.
