Release

✔ Timestamps used in FEI's Timestamps and Attachments views are now displayed in 24-hour format.

1

Have timestamp formatting reflect the OS system regional setting or ISO 8601.

The Timestamps sub-menu shows timestamps in the short date (yyyy-mm-dd) and long time (hh:mm:ss) format which matches the preferred one configured in my OS regional settings except that FEI uses a 12hr clock instead of a 24hr one. If you want to use hardcoded formatting then please add the option for users to switch to a 24hr clock. Otherwise please adopt the formatting specified by the user in their system's regional settings. The Attachments sub-menu appears to have a different hardcoded timestamp format of mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss with a 12hr clock. Please make the formatting of this sub-menu consistent with the Timestamp sub-menu. If this timestamp were directly copied and not parsed from the email then I could understand why the formatting is different but based on my testing I believe this is a parsed value.

✔ Intelligence panels—such as the DKIM and Insights views—which may take some time to be displayed now show a progress spinner to make it clear that FEI is doing something.

0

Pressing the DKIM & ARC button should show progress status instead of no feedback.

When the DKIM & ARC button is pressed for the first time, it can take a while (30 seconds) before processing completes and the results are shown for some emails. In the meantime it is not clear to the user that the email has applicable records, that those records are currently being processed, and that the application actually registered the mouse click and is not hanging. Usually when such background processing occurs, the user is informed with a progress bar, spinning icon, or a textual message that says processing is occurring. I have no preference on which method is used, but some sort of processing indicator should be shown so that the user knows that FEI is doing something.
