PowerMail 3.0 Released -- CTM Development has released version 3.0 of their PowerMail email client, a major rewrite that builds on the program's strengths with multi-lingual email and support for Sherlock searching. Improvements in PowerMail 3.0 include multi-threaded sending and receiving of email, improved importing capabilities, a redesigned address book that supports multiple addresses per recipient, colored labels for folders and messages, multiple signatures with random signature capabilities, SMTP batch sending by domain, and more. CTM Development focused specifically on making PowerMail 3.0 attractive to Claris Emailer users; if you've resisted moving away from Emailer so far, PowerMail is well worth a look. PowerMail 3.0 requires a PowerPC-based Mac with Mac OS 8.5 or later. A 30-day demo is available as a 2.1 MB download. PowerMail 3.0 costs $49 new; users of previous versions purchased in 1998 or 1999 can upgrade for $29, and those who purchased PowerMail in 2000 can upgrade for free. [ACE]
Access OpenType Font Features
OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.
