With the release of version 1.0.1, Bare Bones Software has applied a bit of polish to Mailsmith, the company's new email program (see "Mailsmith Emerges from the Forge" in TidBITS 428). Important enhancements include easier creation of nested mailboxes, improved query progress behavior, better performance on Power Macs using virtual memory, additional functionality in the Simple Query dialog box, and the capability to create "check only" and "send only" email accounts. Bare Bones has also added other enhancements and fixed a number of bugs reported since the 1.0 release; full release notes list the changes. The update to Mailsmith 1.0.1 is either a 2.2 MB (BinHex) or 1.6 MB (MacBinary) download; the free 30-day demo has also been updated to 1.0.1.
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
