Mailsmith Emerges from the Forge -- Bare Bones Software today announced the release of Mailsmith 1.0, the company's long-awaited email client program. Although the market for email programs would appear crowded, what with Emailer, Eudora, Netscape Communicator, Outlook Express, QuickMail Pro, and others, Mailsmith promises some unusual features. Mailsmith offers multi-threaded processing that enables it to send, receive, and filter mail while you continue to work; filters with multiple criteria and multiple actions; "fuzzy" searching; grep pattern matching in searches and filters; database-based mail storage; full OSA scripting and recording; and the essential text-editing features from BBEdit. Mailsmith has a suggested retail price of $79; existing BBEdit owners can purchase it for $59; and discounts are available for users of other email programs. A demo is available from the Bare Bones FTP site, which isn't currently accepting connections. [ACE]
Untrash the Trash
Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.
