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.
ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut
For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.
You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.
