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.
Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
