Can no longer Export Friends or Blocked list?

Beitragvon Ahzz » 27. Jan 2012, 05:49

It seems that the newest version of Spamihilator 1.0.0 has broken both it's own export friends/blocked list ability under the export settings section as well as the Export Senders plug-in version 1.2.2. It seems that the lists have been removed from the spamihilator.ini file & placed in a senders.db file, while both exporters are still looking in the old location. So my question is do we now just copy the senders.db file if we want to back up or transfer our friends/blacked list or is there more to it? Also should the the Export Senders plug in now be moved to the Obsolete Plugins section?

Hi!

Yes, all you have to do is to backup the senders.db file.

Bye,
Michel

Thanks for the verification.

Update: I did indeed copy the the senders.db file from a Windows XP Pro 32-bit system to a new Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit system, exited out of Spamihilator, then relaunched it & the full list of friends/blocked senders is now present.

Note: If you're coping it to another machine do it before you enter any senders on the new machine because there is no way to merge the senders.db files & the copied file will overwrite the one already on the machine. However, you can still import the exported friends/blocked senders lists from older versions of Spamihilator.

You’re right, even though some users could take it for older Spamihilator versions.

As a manually used workaround, you can read .db files with the SQLite Administrator and copy-paste entries from one file into another.

Kind regards,

Hello Chactory :)

I downloaded it, fired it up & opened senders.db. At first I didn't see anything, until I clicked on the tab that said "edit data". At that point I got three columns titled "mail", "name" & "block". As I only use the friend list all the "block" entries where 2's. I expect the "blocked" senders would be 1's?

I also noticed that each entry under each column would have to be copied separately. Now as I was reading about SQLite Administrator on their site, they said that data could be imported & exported. So you can export all the senders to a .CSV file, then load your current sender.db file & import all the exported senders into it, complete with their blocked status.

Note, if you're nervous about messing up your current senders.db file & you only use friends or blocked senders like me, you can use Spamihilator's own sender import, the first sender it will offer you to import is "mail" & "name", just reverse them (Spamihilator import expects "name" first) & don't accept the first sender "name(mail)", as it is only the exported column titles. After that you can select which senders to accept or chose to accept them all.

I have verified that both ways of "combining" your sender lists as described above will work.

Many thanks for the link & all the help, Ahzz

Hmm, so do I.

Thanks a lot for your contribution, Ahzz! :)

Hi Chactory and everyone!

I hope all of you are well!

I have finally updated the Export Senders plugin so that it will read the senders.db file. A new version of the plugin (v2.0.0) is available here:

http://www.peaktopeak.com/spamihilator/index.htm

The direct link to it is here:

http://www.peaktopeak.com/spamihilator/ ... _2_0_0.exe

Let me know if you have a problem with it. The plugin is still 32-bit version because I can't compile it for 64-bit.

Regards,
Bob Loeffler
