PowerMail 3.0.3 Available -- CTM Development recently released a pair of updates to PowerMail, the latest version of its multilingual email client with search capabilities based on the same technologies as Apple's Sherlock. (See "Migrating to New Climes with PowerMail" in TidBITS-530.) Version 3.0.2 fixes an indexing bug that would cause some messages to be invisible to searches, corrects issues indexing upper-ASCII (accented) characters, among other fixes. New features include improved URL handling in messages and an improved First Aid feature. Mailboxes from version 3.0.2 can't be opened with previous versions of PowerMail, so back up your message database before upgrading. Hot on the heels of 3.0.2, version 3.0.3 fixed several annoying bugs introduced in 3.0.2 and added the capability to make searches diacritical-insensitive. PowerMail 3.0.3 is a 2.2 MB download and requires Mac OS 8.5 or later; a 30-day demo is available. [GD]
Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail
Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.
If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.
