LetterRip Pro 3.0.5 Adds POP Features & Server Tweaks -- Fog City Software has released LetterRip Pro 3.0.5, a maintenance release of its $395 mailing list software for the Mac OS. (See "Going Pro with LetterRip Pro" in TidBITS-473 for a review of LetterRip Pro 3) LetterRip Pro 3.0.5 adds the ability to handle automatic -on, -off, and -digest subscription accounts while using LetterRip with a single POP address, provides a way to change the incoming SMTP port, adds headers to non-MIME digests so email clients can better handle quoted-printable encoding, and fixes a handful of initialization issues. LetterRip Pro 3.0.5 is a free update to LetterRip Pro 3.x owners (the download ranges from 550K to 2.9 MB, depending whether you need the full installer or just the server application); owners of earlier versions of LetterRip Pro may be able to update for free, otherwise the update is $145. A fully functional 30-day demo from Fog City's Web site. [GD]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
