Norton's anti-virus won't allow the file to install - doesn't give an option to go around it

MIST 2.0 was just released and shouldn't have the problem you mentioned, Peter.  If it does, please let me know.

Any chance of building this into TNTMPD so that it would work on Mac as well?

Hey Johnny. Unfortunately I don't have a way of building this *into* TntMPD (though Troy is welcome to do as much of that as he'd like!)  However, I am currently working on an improvement that *should* let MIST run on Mac as well.  Stay tuned...

Johnny: MIST 3.1 was just released today.  It includes support for Mac OS X.  I'd love to hear your feedback!

I tried this on Mac osx 10.9.1 and works, so long as I take care to copy only donor emails into the tntmpd folder I made in Apple Mail. I found when there are a lot of emails not in the TNTMPD database the program hangs...or possibly delays for a long time when I threw about 500 emails at it that may or may not have been donor email addresses....but I wanted to see how much I could throw at it to make it choke...I did (smile)

Thanks for noting that, Stephen!  I've had others report something similar, but I haven't been able to track down the "why" yet.  In particular, for some people, 499 of those emails work just fine but one of them has some kind of problem that makes MIST unhappy (and so it never gets to the other ones).  I haven't quite figured out what causes it yet.

If you're interested in doing some debugging for me and can narrow it down to one message in particular, that'd help a lot!  You could go about that by taking out about half the emails and seeing if the problem persists.  If so, take out another half, etc., until the problem goes away.  That narrows down the set of emails until you're left with one (or a few?) emails can trigger the problem.  We can then try to figure out what about them specifically results in the hang.

Having an install problem.... Windows 7 64Bit on a Dell laptop. When MIST launches the first time I encounter a JAVA error...

"WIndows cannot find 'javaw'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Have installed MIST in this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\MIST

Javaw.exe lives in this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin

Have uninstalled/reinstalled with MIST is this path with no change in the error: C:\Program Files\MIST

Suggestions?

Also, I am running the most current version of JAVA - (Version 7 Update 51)

Sorry you're having trouble!  Since you also wrote up the issue on the MIST website, I'll respond to the problem there.

Is the MIST program giving problems connecting to IMAP servers? I'm have no success setting it up with my personal email server account and with a Gmail account.

Hi James, You might want to Google this.  From my own experience, I know that I have to go into my Gmail account settings and check a box that says something like "allow less secure apps to connect" to allow IMAP, and in the Gmail settings, there's also a box to enable IMAP.  If you try connecting with Outlook or Thunderbird to connect via IMAP and it doesn't work there either, than it's probably not a MIST issue.  --Troy

If you have 2-step authentication turned on for your Gmail account you will need to generate a specific App Password for MIST. Go to myaccount.google.com/apppasswords and under Select App, choose Other. Type in MIST. Google will generate a specific password for you to use in the MIST Preference screen to login.

I just set up MIST 4.0 with my TNTConnect 3.4 r3.  I've successfully set it up to connect to my gmail via IMAP.  While I'm able to import email I've dragged into the TNT label I created in gmail, MIST will not recognize the replies I've sent to these contacts in the Sent Mail folder, even though it appears that the entire conversation is labelled as TNT.  Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?  Is MIST still actively supported ?  Thanks so much.

Please disregard my prior question...found the answer on the SourceForge page for MIST.  Feel free to delete these two comments if you'd like.  Thanks!

I'm occasionally getting a problem upon opening MIST 4.0.  It will not let me reconnect to the database.  I found an old thread on the support site (for an older version of MIST) that said to try the Compact and Repair DB option in TNTConnect.  That solved it (for now), but I'm wondering if MIST 4.0 is fully compatible with the most recent database changes in TNTConnect (current version 3.4 r3) ?  Thanks for any help.
