Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

 
 

SpamSieve 2.8.5

Send Article to a Friend

Surely to the chagrin of Nigerian princes everywhere, C-Command has released SpamSieve 2.8.5. The new update improves SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy, and also improves compatibility with new MacBook Pros, pre-release versions of Mac OS X Lion, and Freron Software’s new MailMate. Outlook and Entourage integrations now work more smoothly, and SpamSieve’s plug-in for Apple Mail now runs in 64-bit on Mac OS X 10.6 when possible. The software’s documentation and localization are improved, too. ($30 new, free update, 7.8 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>

Still won't work with Thunderbird, which is too bad. T-Bird's spam filter isn't great.
