Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

PowerMail 3.0.8 Adds HTML & Authentication -- CTM Development has released PowerMail 3.0.8, a notable update to their internationally savvy email client (see "Migrating to New Climes with PowerMail" in TidBITS-530.). PowerMail 3.0.8 adds support for SMTP authentication (a secure way for mail servers to enable valid users on remote networks to send mail without opening the server to abuse by spammers), and can view HTML-formatted messages by linking to the latest version of Apple's HTML rendering engine under Mac OS 9.1. Apple's HTML rendering is limited, but often enough to get the point across, and you can choose to view a message as text, or in your preferred Web browser. PowerMail 3.0.8 also supports importing and exporting email from Microsoft Entourage, along with numerous other small features. PowerMail 3.0.8 requires a PowerPC-based system running Mac OS 8.5 or higher, and offers preliminary support for Mac OS X. PowerMail costs $49, and a 30-day trial version is available as a 2.6 MB download. [GD]
