Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

CE Fixes QM Server

Send Article to a Friend
Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Late last month, CE Software, Inc. announced a new release of its QuickMail electronic mail server software, version 2.6v2. The update, which affects only the server software, fixes two problems in previous versions.

CE reports that, when messages with large file enclosures were forwarded from one user to another, other local users were sometimes disconnected from the server. CE also corrected a problem that prevented the 57th and 170th users defined in any given MailCenter's user list (alphabetically) from connecting to the server remotely using the QM Remote utility.

CE will distribute new QuickMail packages with the fixed software. CE customers who pay for premium support will receive a disk-based updater. Other customers may download an updater from CE's support forums on America Online, CompuServe, and AppleLink, or the Internet from: QM_Server_2.6v2.sea.hqx

QuickMail users without Internet or online service access may request the update on disk for $10 by calling CE Software.

The updater utility works on existing installations of QuickMail server software 2.6 or 2.6v1. CE released a 2.6v1 updater a few months ago. There have also been 2.6v1 updates for the QuickMail client software, the QM Administrator application, and the NameServer control panel since QuickMail 2.6 was released last year. You can find at least some of the previous updaters in:
