Bare Bones Software this week released Mailsmith 1.1.1, which includes relatively few major changes but numerous minor tweaks and fixes. The most obvious changes include optional coloring of quoted text in messages and an option to use the Base64 encoding format directly without a binary packaging format (see "Macintosh Internet File Format Primer" in TidBITS 445 for more information on Base64). Mailsmith 1.1.1 is free to all registered users and you can download a 3.8 MB updater.
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
