    You appear to be using the Windows version of POPFile. Those "WARNING: POPFile may require Perl module..." entries just mean some of the optional POPFile components offered by the installer have not been installed, so you can ignore those warnings.

    The installer offers a selection of optional components and if you select any of them then the installer will ensure that all of the necessary Perl components get installed.

    Those warnings are provided as an aid to users of the cross-platform version. POPFile requires several Perl modules which are not part of a standard Perl installation. Users of the cross-platform version may need to install some extra Perl modules. Those messages help identify the extra Perl modules the cross-platform user may need to install.

    In the next release attempts have been made to make those WARNING messages less alarming. I'm not sure when the next release will appear.

    The crash may have been caused by a "bad" email message (possibly a badly constructed spam message?). The next release should be able to cope better when an unexpected null character is found in a message.

      Phew, Thanks Brian. I've used every version of Popfile since it's inception and have never come across this before. Will look out for the new version. Like I say I just restarted Popfile and it downloaded the messages ok. Yes I'm running the Windows version.

      regards
