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.

Mailplane 3.3

Send Article to a Friend

Uncomplex has released Mailplane 3.3, which now automatically signs out accounts with empty passwords as well as clearing cookies and caches when quitting. The Gmail-specific email client also enables you to preview and download attachments shared from Google Drive, plus open Google Docs in an external Web browser. The release also fixes the bulleted list insertion (Command-Shift-8) so that it works in a pop-out window, prevents inline images from being inserted into plain text messages, opens Google Hangouts if opened via a Google Calendar event, and ensures that print works if a language other than English was selected. ($24.95 new, free update, 17.4 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
