We accidentally missed the release of Uncomplex’s Mailplane 2.5 a few weeks ago, which gives the Gmail-specific email client support for full-screen mode in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, along with support for the new Preview Pane feature from Gmail Labs. Otherwise, the Mailplane 2.5 release fixed bugs relating to Boomerang and Rapportive, addressed some Lion-specific bugs, and automatically adds the Evernote toolbar button when the Evernote application is installed. The just-released Mailplane 2.5.1 adds a Window > Enter Full Screen menu item and keyboard shortcut for Lion users, removes the conflicting keyboard shortcut from Mail > Forward, and fixes some problems with sending messages, uploading attachments, and two-finger swipes in Lion.

Just Show Me the Pictures!
Do you ever find that you don't have time to read those long email missives from Aunt Carol, but really do want to see the photos that she has lovingly attached? In Apple Mail, click the Quick Look button located in the message header. You'll get an easily browsed view of just the attached photos, and you can even add them to iPhoto, if you like!
