Good evening,

I wonder if there is any continuing development going on with PowerMail.
Specifically, there are a number of areas that likely need help in the near
future for the program to remain relevant.

1) Future Mac OS' beyond Mojave will no longer allow 32-bit applications.
2) Transport Layer Security (TLS) in PowerMail is stuck at 1.0 whereas the
world has moved on. Even Sierra uses 1.2. Many ISPs are turning off TLS 1.0
support now (pair networks, for example) Long Term, POP downloads will no
longer be possible for many users if TLS stays at 1.0. That in turn means
that the lovely sorting we have gotten used to will no longer function
also.
3) The IMAP implementation of PowerMail is quite simply weak. I hope that
can be overhauled and made as robust as the POP3 functions that preceded it.
