Mailsmith Joins Native Email Clients -- Mac OS X users looking for a powerful email application to replace Apple's bundled Mail program can now add Bare Bones Software's Mailsmith 1.5 to the list of choices. New features in Mailsmith 1.5 include one-step filter creation, support for draft messages, approximate text translation of HTML messages, random signature support, the capability to display image and movie attachments within Mailsmith, a Glossary feature for inserting frequently used bits of boilerplate text, improved scripting and grep functionality, keyboard assignments for scripts and stationery, and more. Upgrades from previous versions of Mailsmith cost $40 (free for copies purchased in 2002); the program retails for $100, with a limited-time discount price of $70 until 31-May-02, after which it will be replaced with an $80 price for owners of BBEdit, Emailer, or Eudora. A free demo is available as an 8.2 MB download. [ACE]
