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]
Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
