Option-Click AirPort Menu for Network Details

If you hold down the Option key while clicking the AirPort menu in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, you'll see not just the names of nearby Wi-Fi networks, but additional details about the selected network. Details include the MAC address of the network, the channel used by the base station, the signal strength (a negative number; the closer to zero it is, the stronger the signal), and the transmit rate in megabits per second showing actual network throughput. If you hover the cursor over the name of a network to which you're not connected, a little yellow pop-up shows the signal strength and type of encryption.

 
 

EIMS Light 3.1.1 Simplifies Mac Email Server

Send Article to a Friend

EIMS Light 3.1.1 Simplifies Mac Email Server -- As Glenn Anderson's Mac OS-based Eudora Internet Mail Server has evolved, its feature set has grown beyond what many sites need. In response, Glenn has now released EIMS Light 3.1.1, which is identical to the full EIMS 3.1.1 but supports only a single domain (with domain aliases), lacks an IMAP server, doesn't provide LDAP and Ph directory services, doesn't support Apple Events (and thus AppleScript), and lacks the Incoming Mail folder that some utilities use to extend the email processing capabilities of the full version. In exchange for this reduced feature set, EIMS Light costs only $200, or half as much as the full version of EIMS. It requires a 68030-based Macintosh or better, running System 7.1 or later with Open Transport 1.1.1. A 60-day fully functional demo of the full version of EIMS is available. [ACE]
