Menu Button Extension


Menu Button Extension for Pegasus Mail

Overview

The Menu Button Extension is intended to provide an easy method to add additional buttons to the Pegasus Mail toolbar to invoke existing menu functions with the click of the mouse instead of having to drill down through the menus to find the desired option.

Pegasus Mail 3.x now provides this functionality within the standard program. However, some people may want to continue using the Menu Button Extension since the choice of bitmaps is very limited at this time.

Pegasus Mail 2.x versions are limited to only 5 additional menu buttons to be added. The newer 3.1x versions can support up to 10 additional menu buttons. Also some functionality may not work in all circumstances as menu options are only available at certain times. At this time the extension does no checking to verify that a particulr menu option is enabled. Therefore problems may occur if a function is invoked at the wrong time.
