Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

SpamSieve 2.9.1

Send Article to a Friend

C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.1, which primarily addresses the recent release of Microsoft Outlook 2011 SP2 (for the most recent update, see “Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.2.1,” 26 April 2012). If you’ve previously used Outlook 2011, the spam-filtering software will update its scripts automatically. However, if you have a new installation of Outlook 2011, you can choose Install Outlook Scripts from the SpamSieve menu to start running your rules. Additionally, SpamSieve 2.9.1 addresses some problems with its Apple Mail plug-in, detecting any damage and attempting to auto-heal the installed copy of the plug-in as well alert you to download and install a fresh copy. The release also no longer triggers Mac OS X’s “accept incoming network connections” firewall dialog, plus adds some exception guards to work around bugs in the Growl SDK. ($30 new, free update, 9.1 MB, release notes)
