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.

CloudPull 2.5.3

Send Article to a Friend

Golden Hill Software has released CloudPull 2.5.3 with a number of improvements and bug fixes. The Google data backup application ensures that your inbox mail folder will be found even if it’s not named “INBOX,” increases the allowed amount of time for a Gmail message to be downloaded, adds error handling improvements when downloading Gmail messages, retrieves a fresh list of calendar events to avoid an issue that prevented Google Calendar from backing up, fixes a problem that incorrectly caused mail messages to be listed as unlabeled, and confirms that all previously backed up files are still present in the backup repository at the start of each backup cycle. ($24.99 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 9.7 MB, release notes)
