Author/Date v1.84 feature requests.

1.84 has been the most stable version for quite a while for me, no crashes no nothing- works like a charm. Here are a few things I'd like to see, maybe in the next few versions if possible.

- Ability to reply by pressing Ctrl+R in the message window
- Ability to go to next/previous mail by pressing Alt left/right
- When I restore the window from the status bar, the message list should have focus, instead.. right now none of the 'frames' get focus.
- I dont know how hard this'll be, but it'll be a hell of a sweet feature: Send myself an email when any 'reminder' becomes due. This way even if i miss the reminder, I'll get an email waiting in my inbox about it.

Thankyou for a great program fret!

Nice suggestions.

- I've added: Ctrl-r -> reply, Ctrl-f -> forward
- Next/Prev hotkeys already implemented as Ctrl-n and Ctrl-p.
- Also added: made the list have focus on restore from trayicon.
- When you "miss" a reminder, because the program isn't running then it will pop up that reminder dialog as soon as you run Scribe. So I don't see how an email in the inbox is going to be any better than the reminder dialog, considering both need Scribe to be running.

Thanks for the quick reply.. seems as if all the things I thought were missing from scribe are there or will be soon enough!

Re: the reminder thing, I use a web/pop3 account, so lets say I check my email from my library, I can see the reminder from the web interface too, thats all. Its not an urgent feature or anything, but would be a nice addition.

So Scribe is running somewhere at the time?

Because obviously if Scribe isn't running there is little I can do about :)

Sounds like an option.

Scribe is usually on 24/7 on my home pc.

Also what I like doing is, Setting up a reminder with to-do stuff in scribe, and i get an alert for it at 7 in the morning, it would be useful to get an email for it too, so that it can be accessed from anywhere.

Another thing I noticed, when I press Ctrl R/Reply to a message it puts the 'Replied' flag immediately. Would be better if it put the replied tag after the email has been sent or put in the outbox.

Once the reply has been created from the original message there is no reference to the original email. Currently the architecture of Scribe can't maintain a reference between emails between sessions, or even during runtime.

So I can't go back when the reply is sent and find the email that was being replied to. Instead I make the original mail replied to straight away while I still know which one it is.

v2.x of Scribe will have unique ID's for each object so that I can reference things properly.
