Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background

If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.

SpamSieve 2.9.8

Send Article to a Friend

C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.8 with a variety of improvements to the app’s filtering accuracy and a change to the Train as Good command in Apple Mail, which now considers the message’s CC recipients when determining the correct destination inbox. The spam-filtering utility has been updated to handle the recently released OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion (see “OS X 10.8.5 Fixes Nasty Text Rendering Bug,” 12 September 2013), but not the upcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The release also improves how the installer works around incorrect Apple Mail folder permissions, removes unused code from the Apple Mail plug-in, and updates several sections of the manual. ($30 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 10.8 MB, release notes)
