Emailer 2.0 Available -- Last week, Claris released Emailer 2.0, sporting a revamped interface and a handful of new landmark features. The most important change is that Emailer now stores messages in database form (rather than as separate files) which greatly reduces disk space overhead in comparison to storing messages as individual files. Emailer's Mail Actions are more robust and offer extended filtering options, and Emailer now supports hierarchical File Cabinet folders. If you upgrade from an earlier version, ensure that your existing mail converts properly by reading the installation instructions carefully. Claris has posted a 4 MB trial version of Emailer 2.0.

New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
