Sylpheed

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd try out the email program called Sylpheed. I downloaded it yesterday at work (faster connection than here at home) and installed it on the XP machine in my office. Very nice looking email program! I brought it home and installed it on my Win98SE machine here at home. It installed fine, but the program will not open. On the Sylpheed site, it *says* it should work on Win98SE.

Have any of you had the experience of Sylpheed not working in 98SE? Have any of you had the program work for you?

Thanks in advance for any input!

What do you mean, 'will not open'?

I click on Sylpheed.exe, I get a busy cursor like something is going on, then the cursor reverts back to the regular cursor, without the program's having opened. Sylpheed does not appear in the task list, so it's not even running in the background.

Have you tried the Kernel Update?

I'll counter with a question - what do you mean "Kernel Update"? I don't have a clue what that is or how to "try" it.

If you'd searched the forums for that exact term you would've found this: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=71476
