More Power from the P.O.

Send Article to a Friend

More Power from the P.O. The world of Macintosh mailing list managers just became more compelling with the release of StarNine's ListSTAR 1.1 and Fog City Software's LetterRip 1.0. ListSTAR 1.1 (a free upgrade from 1.0) adds templates for easing the creation of new mailing lists and email services, provides digests with a table of contents, and is Open Transport native. ListSTAR comes in SMTP ($499) and POP ($199) versions, although the SMTP version is significantly more powerful. We run the 43,000-person TidBITS mailing list using ListSTAR/SMTP 1.1, and it has proven an excellent performer.

The $295 ($195 through 31-Jan-97, with a 30-day evaluation version) LetterRip takes a different approach. Where ListSTAR provides tremendous flexibility and suffers from related complexity, LetterRip has garnered kudos for its ease of use and configuration. LetterRip is also Open Transport native, and can be administered remotely. [ACE]
