OE functions & virtual machine

OE functions & virtual machine
Just wondering, have all functions of this OE version here been tested against all functions of the latest OE as by xp3?

Also, is this running in a kinda virtual machine and has therefore some file size limits set by this (e.g. 2gb)? If so, is there a way to expand it?

In any case, @Rafail, great job, mega kudos!!!

RE: OE functions & virtual machine
Hello,
Thanks for your kind words.
All settings work just like on xp, some features like drag attachments directly to email may not function if UAC on windows 7 and newer is turned on but in any case does not affect anything. the file size limit is by default on outlook express 2gb. But i thing that it would be a bad idea to have very large files (larger than 2gb) because of corruption risk.
It is not running on virtualization but directly like on xp.

Tell that to M$ Outlook and its .PST files, which are (now?) unlimited size - I have recently copied 17.5G file over LAN, which took forever (bad ethernet connection and low spec. PC-s).
Best solution (in my oppinion) is the one OE Classic uses - each folder is sqlite3 database, practically unlimited size.

RE: OE functions & virtual machine
sqlite3 database is a very good idea that some software uses (like firefox) for storing data.
The advantages of using common databases (like sqlite3) instead of store files are numerous:
DBX or PST have custom structure and are difficult or impossible to read form, databases (like sqlite3) are not and are easier to recover.
databases (like sqlite3) can be easily accessed by third party software (even web software like php) for many customization's.
databases (like sqlite3) can be accessed by phones or any other device that has a software to read such databases.
i can write many more lines here, but i think there is no point. Your suggestion (ali_dzi) was maby the best that i have read on this forum

Sounds like one should switch to OE Classic, but it has less features than the original OE...so it is hard to let go the known, tried & trusted, working environment.
Anyone using OE Classic heavily & happily?
