Dismissing the notification about new Mailspring version has no effect–Mailspring auto-updates itself upon restart without asking the user.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Install Mailspring 1.7.6
- Receive notification about new version (1.7.7)
- Hit Dismiss (not Update)
- Restart Mailspring
Mailspring should just start
Mailspring silently auto-updates itself to 1.7.7.
- OS and Version: Windows 10 Version 2004
- Mailspring Version: 1.7.6
This is unacceptable behavior–if the user did not consent to auto-update, it should not happen. There might be valid reasons, e.g. work-stopping bugs like this one that would make the user want to stay with the older version till the bug is fixed.
I was looking for a setting to disable the auto-update behavior, but there does not seem to be any–did I miss something?
Found a workaround:
cd %LOCALAPPDATA%\Mailspring del Update.exe
