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.
Opening a Folder from the Dock
Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.
