Just upgraded to slimserver on an XP box. Noticed it doesn't auto start the service like it used to. I saw the password request during setup, but left it as the one and only user account doesn't have one.

Also, any way to set the preferences for this list to give me a "Yahoo" style digest, all emails pasted together, instead of all these damn attatchements?

Max -

At the bottom of the list there's a link...

http://lists.slimdevices.com/lists/listinfo/discuss

you can set up a digest version there.

good luck

Try installing the latest nightly version, available here:

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest

And me know if the service starts up for you.

Note: Windows doesn't allow services to start up running as a user
without a password, so if you leave the password field blank, the
service will start as the SYSTEM user, which means that it won't be
able to find your iTunes information (if you are using iTunes.) You
can resolve this by adding a password to that account.
