iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

PowerMail 3.0 Released

Send Article to a Friend

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]
