Updated: Outlook Export, v0.1.16

Just finished updating Outlook Export. The updates are;

Fixed: Runtime error when last folder loaded no longer exists
Fixed: Wrong email loaded when viewing selected email

Added: Search headers/body

You can find the new version in the usual place, and thank you.

INFO: Machine issues

Just a note folks, my machine got majorly corrupted whilst I was in Mexico, and whilst I've now transferred everything to a new machine, I've lost around 800K emails (tried repairing the PSTs and manually exporting then importing them, but those attempts failed miserably). If you sent me one between April 4th - April 19th, please re-send it.

I'm going through those I've received since the 19th and ask those waiting for a reply to please be patient (I've got around 40,000 to go through that have arrived since the transfer). If you don't receive a reply in the next few days, please feel free to re-send it and I'll get to it as soon as I can.

ALERT: Green Tech Software LLC

... and the crapware just keeps on a' comin'

This one was found on bayfiles.net, and yep, they're fully aware of it (impossible to miss). See if you can spot the two problems here;

Spotted it? What do you mean no!

Seriously though, the first is far more obvious than the second, for those not used to being able to spot this rubbish. See that lovely little "bar" at the top? Well that's the blatantly obvious one. This leads to utorrent.descargar.es.

The second is the download button that err - isn't. These lead to crapware from Green Tech Software LLC, via 1phads.com and fishcod.com, and guess what it actually delivers ........ Yep, "Codec Performer".
