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]
