==================== Compatibility ==================

  • ARA Server 3.0: There is an incompatibility with this version of ARA server that causes SnapMail to continuously scan the network, The current fix is to use a different version of the Server software.
  • Apple Data Detectors: If you are installing SnapMail for the first time, and you are running Apple Data Detectors please disable the ADD extenstion until after you have successfully installed and rebooted SnapMail. If you don't ADD will cause lock up you mac durring boot once you have typed in your SnapMail id (or restored identity). You will then have to force a reboot. After that reboot, everything should work fine, so this advice is only to prevent you from having to force the reboot.
  • Suitcase: Old versions of Suitcase will cause an error alert to appear at start-up time that proclaims an unexpected error -109. Upgrading to Suitcase II version 2.1.2 or later fixes this problem.
  • Escapade: Old versions of Escapade can cause a crash when opening a log item in the Delivered Mail Log. Upgrading to version 1.3.2 or later fixes this problem.
  • Retrospect Remote: If Retrospect is set to intercept shutdown for a late night backup SnapMail will not get a chance to dump any pending mail to a server until AFTER the backup, when the shutdown procedure completes. If this is a problem for you, you should turn on the "Send all mail directly to server" preference.
