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.

 
 

QuickMail early birds

QuickMail early birds miss out on CE's latest offer. Hoping to entice more of their installed user base to upgrade to QuickMail 3.0 (see TidBITS-240), CE Software is now offering a free copy of QuicKeys (the company's personal automation software) for each multi-user QuickMail package upgraded. (Upgrading costs $12 per user.) The offer is valid until the end of December, 1994. Mixed reviews and the absence of academic or quantity discounts for the upgrades have kept many sites from moving to QuickMail 3.0. SoftArc is even advertising "sidegrades" to FirstClass from earlier versions of QuickMail at a lower per-user price. [MHA]
