The Mail Must Go Through, Faster -- Bare Bones Software has released version 2.0 of its POP/SMTP email client, Mailsmith (see "Mailsmith 1.5: Lean, Mean Email Machine" in TidBITS-638). In addition to standard email client features, Mailsmith incorporates the key text-handling abilities of Bare Bones's BBEdit, now including PCRE-based regular expression searching. This version offers seamless integration with Michael Tsai's SpamSieve (see "Tools We Use: SpamSieve" in TidBITS-667), PGP, and Apple's Address Book. Interface details and the internal threading and storage implementations have been heavily reworked, resulting in a smooth, fast, reliable, and intuitive user experience. Mailsmith requires Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar or later, and costs $100. This upgrade is free to Mailsmith 1.5 owners; an $80 crossgrade is available. New purchasers can get a free copy of SpamSieve 1.3 if ordered before 30-Jul-03. A 30-day demo is available as a 12.9 MB download. [MAN]
