PowerMail 3.1 Beefs Up IMAP Support -- CTM Development has released PowerMail 3.1, the latest version of their capable email client, with completely rewritten IMAP support. (See "Migrating to New Climes with PowerMail" in TidBITS-530 for a review of PowerMail 3.0.) Other new features include manual activation of filters, improved support for other languages, faster filtering, automatic bracketing of pasted or dragged URLs to reduce the likelihood a recipient won't be able to successfully click long URLs that break across lines, enhanced AppleScript functionality, and support for mouse wheels under Mac OS X. PowerMail 3.1 also fixes a number of bugs in the previous version. It's a free update for registered users of PowerMail 3.0, and there's a 30-day demo available as a 4.1 MB download. [ACE]
