Add CalDAV?

When will VM handle two-way sync with CalDav-standard servers, not google or other named backends? That feature would make me upgrade to ultimate lifetime :) These servers connect with URL, username, password - and not a .ICS file. My current tests with version 2019.05 give error 409 'Conflict' or 4...

Re: Sending too many emails at once

Follow-up: For some reason, VM showed an error message like "cannot send email reminders because SMTP connection failed". Yet the destination mailbox contained several new reminder messages that had just arrived. How do VM's reminders both get sent and fail to get sent in the same session? The clue ...

Sending too many emails at once

Using VM Pro 2019.05. When it starts up, VM tries to send out allll the email reminders that would have been sent since the last time it was shut down. This could be fifty or more email messages, all at the same time. My ISP's mail server does not like that, thinking it is getting spammed. So their ...

Solved: Import ICS by double-click

Double-clicking an .ICS file from a file explorer was launching the VM installer instead of importing the events. The relevant registry entry had an unexpected item named 'command': [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VueMinder.exe\shell\open\command] @="\"d:\\FolderPath\\VueMinder.exe\" \"%1\"" "command"=[random te...

Re: Menu bar does not display.

Specifically, to ensure menu items are not blank, your language file such as language_en.tsv must exist in the program folder.

URL property in ICS/import files

It would be useful to import the URL: line item, as listed at https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2445#section-4.8.4.6
The address would then show up on an event's Links tab.
Of course also CSV/TSV files, and CSV-to-ICS ...

Copy+Paste into Event Description: Plain / Unformatted Text

In the Event window's Description field, please add more usability / ease of use to the feature "Paste Plain Text". The right-click / context menu should have a menu item named "Paste Plain Text", listed right underneath "Paste". The standard keystroke for "Paste Unformatted Text" is Shift+Ctrl+V, b...

Re: Import Events and Calendar Name

Yes, that's what I intended to say - the useless default calendar name is coming from the X-WR-CALNAME field in the ICS file. The correct default is used when the file has no such field. Someone could write an ICS pre-processor to strip or change that field's value before VM sees the file. That woul...
