As usual, the new BriskBard version incorporates many features and fixes suggested by the users.

Several users asked for more options in the email client to select what messages have to be downloaded in case of IMAP accounts. That function is called “Customized message download” and it’s now available in the button bar and the context menu, allowing you to specify several search parameters like message dates, text contents, etc.

In addition to that, the email account configuration now has a new option to select the initial sync period to limit the amount of messages downloaded the first time you click on a remote IMAP folder.

By default, BriskBard only downloads the message headers from IMAP servers and the rest of the message is downloaded when the user clicks on it. This is usually the fastest way to get the list of new messages but if you prefer to skip that step and download the whole message you can deselect the new configuration option called “Only download headers”.

The new “Customized message download” window also has an option to download only the message headers or complete messages.

The email client now uses some IMAP protocol extensions to move messages faster and to search messages in Gmail accounts.

BriskBard archive email messages

If you have too many messages in one folder and you would like to organize them you can now use the “Archive selected messages” button. This option will move the messages to the “Archive” folder, grouping them by the year they were sent.

This BriskBard update also includes a print preview in the web browser where you can set the printer options and check the results before printing the document.
