Gotmail 0.8.8 Released!

Filed under
Software

The Gotmail project, a perl script which downloads mail from hotmail.com without user interaction, released version 0.8.8 today. This is a simple maintenance release with only a few basic bug fixes applied including better dealing with spaces in folder names and extra lines in config files.

While normally the project releases versions with more changes, the development community decided that releasing with some bug fixes is a priority. This is especially true now that the program, Gotmail, already accomplishes its primary goal of "downloading mail from hotmail.com."

Full Announcement.

Hotmail

Hard to believe there is anyone out there that uses a Hotmail account for anything other then sending spam.

I've been blocking inbound Hotmail traffic from all my SMTP servers for years as one of my general reduce spam setup measures.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
