Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Released

Friday October 31st, 2003

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.6 Alpha, the first milestone of the 1.6 development cycle. Amongst its other enhancements, 1.6a features many Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, an option to remove mail from a POP server after x days and a preference for placing the user's signature above quoted text when composing an email or newsgroup posting. For more information, see the Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Release Notes. This latest release can be downloaded from the Releases page or directly from the mozilla1.6a directory on

Update: The original Windows builds did not contain the Personal Security Manager, which enables encryption for services such as HTTPS and secure IMAP. This error has now been corrected and new builds are available. Windows users who have had problems accessing secure Web pages or using other secure Internet protocols should re-download.

I seem to remember finding a bug with this request in it, but can't remember the number I'm afraid. It's true that this would be a great feature in any email program, and I'm always surprised by the apparent lack of any program that can do it. Providing that the pop3 server implements the optional top command, this is a simple thing to do manually. I've always assumed that there is a good reason why email programs don't offer this, but have never found out what it is!
