EIMS Server 3.1.1 Available -- Glenn Anderson has released EIMS 3.1.1, a free update to his Mac OS mail server. (See "Two Mac Mail Servers Go Home Again" in TidBITS-613.) Version 3.1.1 fixes a handful of bugs and includes a workaround for some problems with command pipelining with some other SMTP servers (most notably those at Yahoo). Version 3.1.1 also fixes LDAP authentication problems and authentication issues using NTLM with Microsoft's Outlook email program, and speeds up processing of the Incoming Mail folder. The updater is a 76K patch to the EIMS 3.1 application. [GD]
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
