Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Mailsmith 1.5.3 Adds Improved Searches

Send Article to a Friend

Mailsmith 1.5.3 Adds Improved Searches -- Bare Bones Software has updated its powerful email client Mailsmith to version 1.5.3. The signature addition to this version is the capability to search for messages based on the relevance of the search terms, rather than just locating email messages that contain keywords; results are listed with the most relevant messages at the top. Mailsmith 1.5.3 can also now create a new outgoing message with an attachment when you drag a file onto the program's application icon, as well as a host of other fixes and improvements. Mailsmith 1.5.3 is a free update for owners of version 1.5 or later, and is a 5 MB download. [JLC]
