Apple Acquires MailShare -- Apple announced last week that it has acquired both Glenn Anderson and his excellent program MailShare, an SMTP and POP Internet mail server for the Mac. Apple will rename the program "Apple Internet Mail Server" and plans to continue making the current version of the software available as freeware on the Internet, although future versions will be commercial products. Glenn will be moving to Cupertino from New Zealand to work for Apple as a software engineer. It's nice to see additional recognition of Internet talent from Apple - particularly if Apple pays Glenn's moving expenses. [GD]
Expand Finder Columns Quickly
Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
