iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

The Email Man Always Downloads Twice -- Claris has decided to offer Claris Emailer 1.1 for free between now and when Emailer 2.0 ships. The year-old mail client combines Internet POP functionality with access to popular online services. Version 2.0, expected early next year, will offer improved mail-processing rules and a more efficient, single-database storage system.

Also, CE Software has placed a public beta of QuickMail Pro on its Web site so Internet mail users can give it a try. The software, due late this year, combines the popular QuickMail graphical interface with such Internet mail open standards as POP3 and SMTP. The company plans IMAP and directory services support in the future. [MHA]
