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."

Mailsmith 1.1.7 Available -- Bare Bones Software has released Mailsmith 1.1.7, a small update to its email client application. Version 1.1.7 improves support for SMTP AUTH (a protocol which enables validated users to send mail even if they aren't connecting to their server from a trusted address), the capability to change the ports Mailsmith uses for POP and SMTP (useful if you're trying to tunnel via SSH), as well as changes which let Mailsmith function better under Mac OS X's Classic environment. As usual, Bare Bones has made a complete list of changes available online. The update is a 2.7 MB download and free to registered Mailsmith users. [GD]
