A minor but crucial update to a system announced here a few days ago: the
PyMailGUI POP/SMTP email client now supports SSL modes on servers. SSL is
generally recommended by many servers, and required by some (e.g., Gmail).
Also in this update: a new config file for using the program with Gmail
accounts; a new Linux screenshot; a minor patch to a patch for older 3.X
libs; and additional book code imported only on rarely-used PyEdit actions.
The scene on Linux:
The original announcement:
> There is a new standalone release of PyMailGUI - a POP/SMTP email client
> which is a major example in a large Python book (shameless plug omitted).
> This release's code is identical to that in the book, but has a different
> launcher and a self-contained package structure for standalone use.
> PyMailGUI is a bit limited because it was written for use as a teaching
> tool in a book. On the other hand, it does threading, MIME attachments,
> Unicode, and more, and is useful enough to have served as its author's
> primary email tool for over a decade. It may also reduce the probability
> of your email being read by a giant evil company without your consent.
