The Bat! 4.2.33 improved speed of POP3 message retrieving
08.04.2010 We are pleased to release our regularly-scheduled update to our email client The Bat! We have worked hard to bring you numerous improvements and fixes in this new version. However, one feature that you will notice right off the Bat is a significantly faster retrieval of messages via POP3 servers.
Here is a list of some other improvements in this version:
[+] Added a new registry key "DisplayCommandLine" (DWORD). Set it to "1" to let The Bat! display the command line on startup. This may be useful when you are having difficulties in using The Bat! command-line parameters.

[*] Added a workaround for a potential erroneous birthday entry in the address book.

[-] Significantly reduced CPU load during POP3 sessions. This essentially improves the speed of retrieving messages on computers with slow CPU and fast connection (e.g. Ethernet) to the POP3 server.

[-] Fixed a spell-checker related AV on exit

[-] The progress form about loading the antivirus plugins no longer overlaps with the splash screen.

[-] (#0004357) No account username/password update dialog during failed POP3/SMTP login

[-] POP3 password was not updated if a server broke connection

[-] Fixed "stack overflow" crash related to tbuser.def

[-] The action to execute an external program from The Bat! task scheduler didn't work

[-] Cosmetic fixes
