K9 version 1.21 has been released (Jan 3rd 2004).

Bug fixes and changes:

- Implemented right-click list menu "Organize" functionality for the
   Storage Area and Server Check pages. The menu item was present in
   version 1.20 but not functional.
- The whitelist and blacklist files are now monitored for changes so
   there's no need to hit the "Reload" buttons after making manual changes
   and thus the buttons have been removed.
- Minor changes to the installer.


This release is mainly to explain something I forgot to mention in the
previous version...

 From version 1.20 onwards, when K9 starts it checks for the presence
of the K9 registry entry called "EmailsPath". If this entry doesn't
exist or the path it refers to doesn't exist on the hard drive it
looks in the current directory for the "Emails" folder. If it doesn't
exist it creates a new "Emails" directory in the user's "My Documents..."
area. Specifically, it creates it at

<drive>:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\K9

where <username> is your Windows logon name.

This is the "official" place you are supposed to store per-user
application data.

Now that K9 knows where the Emails directory is located it saves this
information to the "EmailsPath" K9 registry entry so that next time
it starts it can find it straight away.

One other related item was the addition of the button on the Statistics
page, "Change data storage location...". You can use this feature to
choose a different location for the K9 "Emails" directory and it
will move all of the existing data to that new location.


The latest version of K9 can be downloaded directly from the following

   EXE installer version (installer and uninstaller)

   ZIP version (no installer or uninstaller)

You can safely install over any existing copy without losing any
