Time to make Ritlabs The Bat more stable, Making ritlabs the bat stable
After more then 10 years in business it starts to be really time to make RitLabs the Bat more stable.

When You close the bat it wants to sync imap folders or do maintenance on them.
When there is a drop of internet connection or another error, there is no time out and the client does hang.

Every procedure should have a time out and a roll back.  Additionally when the mail server timeouts or
delivers error messages or simply block, in the logs it should be proper notified. At least 5 lines of logs should
be permanently visible by standard so the user can find out issues.

Finally it is really time to step away from DBase related database format and switch to MySQL of PostgreSQL
databases.  There is no single reason not to use database abstraction.

Same with the codebase, it should be multiplatform. There is no linux client...

Welcome to this user-to-user forum.

If you have suggestions for Ritlabs, you can submit them using the Support menu on top.

Or better still, join the beta mailing list (click 'thread' to see the most recent messages) so you can talk directly to developers and management:

p.s. The Bat is at least 19 years old, I got my first license in June of 2002..
I volunteer as a moderator to help keep the forum tidy. I do not work for Ritlabs SRL.
