The two major commercial mailing list manager programs for the Macintosh, StarNine's ListSTAR and FogCity's LetterRip, have both received free updates recently. New features in ListSTAR 1.2 provide improved templates for setting up new email services and internal changes that improve performance by reducing the number of DNS lookups when sending mail on machines using Open Transport. The ListSTAR update is a 3.3 MB download for either the POP or SMTP versions of ListSTAR. FogCity's LetterRip 2.0.1 is a maintenance release with a few welcome feature additions, including the capability to disable list headers for a list and support for Maxum's PageSentry server monitoring software. LetterRip 2.0.1 is a 2.7 MB download.
