    from what I read, it's supposed to fix the tmail.exe issues some of us were having when running WM6 and Facade.

    no I didn't, I haven't run facade since I upgraded to 6.1 ( love the sliding panels) if they can figure out a way to integrate facade into the sliding panels then I might use it again.

    if you purchased from EQ just head to software.everythingq.com and go to 'my account' find facade and click 'download upgrade' and your set

    if you got it from sbsh then download the trial and install it you shouldnt need your code

    What are the benefits of the upgrade? Any additional functionality?
  17. maybe it will get rid of the tmail.exe error I always seem to get. didn't know it was facade related.

    It does fix the tmail.exe error as well as the issue of not automatically checking email that some had. I actually am using 1.4.7 after working with one of the dev's on that site to nail down the problem.

    thanks prosper!

    for some reason my email stopped being received every 15min like it used to after the upgrade
    a manual send/receive works but it wont do it automatically anymore
    i rebooted did a manual send/receive...sent myself a test message from another account and waited 20 minutes after my manual send/receive and nothing

    is there a setting that i have to change in facade you know of?
