we’ve just update links and pages for Eldytv English and German, other language coming right after them
as asked by Jeremy, here’s the preview of the feature “Eldy shutdown computer when Eldy is shut down”.
Works fine on Windows and Linux (with sudo package).
I think we need to consider this carefully… it’s very important we state if clear we are shutting [...]
Dear all, we are back.
All has gone smooth these weeks but we’ve been spending some time planning the future.
Two most important points:

Vacation really helps sometimes, to identify the [...]

Most importantly, this is based on a UTF8 architecture that works fine with any language!
So please, Arabic, Greek , Hebrew, Ukrainian etc:
can you please how it looks like?

Dear all, we receive very often some requests on change of labels.
Example …. just some minutes ago:
“I do have one question – why in the e-mail area do you change naming formats from “new mail” to “mail read”? Given that in English present and past of the verb “to read” are the same, this is [...]
thank you for all your efforts to localize Eldy in your languages, from the very first translation to the latest.
We’ve seen Brazilian, Mexican, Swedish, to mention a few. …
Training are going on in Switzerland, US, Ireland, UK, … every where.
It’s very strong feeling for us to see Eldy spreading so much in so far [...]
do you experience problem on ELDY email, getting a “check connection settings”?
that might be because ELDY by default uses SMTP 25 tcp port.
Some providers prefer to allow only authenticated SMTP, to avoid spam.
Just set your ELDY with the following settings (obviously use your password and settings!)
finally 2.3 for linux is out, and so is multi user Eldy for windows.
See widget on your right to download latest
Please let’s finalize translations, so with Eldy 2.4 we can add new fascinating languages (Arabic, Portuguese…)
Enrico & all Eldy Staff
thanks to your debugging, localization work and support we have made Eldy 2.2.2 public, in the name of Eldy 2.3.
In Eldy 2.3 our seniors can find your local content and labels, magnifier in browser and email, full imap support, and a large list of bug fixed (please see bugzilla).
No, we did not make it [...]
it might be you experience a strange situation, in which email and chat works, while other component (e.g. “surf the web”, “eldytv” etc) don’t work.
that is very probably because you have an antivirus Norton active.
Go in the Norton menu, select firewall and set the following rules in the application rules:

to configure ELDY with Yahoo do as follow:
An important, first thing: YAHOO! email does not allow pop3 access in standard service.
To access email via pop3 (as ELDY or any other email client) you need YAHOO! email plus service (http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/overview/overview-03.html)
pop server = plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
some users experienced problem accessing a website with applets using Eldy browser.
that happens for some missing symbolic links in some configurations:
A) create a symbolic link for applet engine in xulrunner
1- cd /usr/lib/xulrunner-188.8.131.52/plugins
2- ln -fs /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
B) if problem persistes, and sun-java6-plugin is installed:
1- apt-get remove sun-java6-plugin
2- cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.16/plugins
3- ln -fs /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
4- cd /usr/lib/xulrunner-184.108.40.206/plugins
we have just released Eldy 2.2c – for test.
