The Mail Must Go Through, Faster
Bare Bones Software, Inc., 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; it is thoroughly scriptable and has powerful filtering capabilities. This version offers seamless integration with SpamSieve, 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, 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-July-03. A 30-day demo is available as a 12.9 MB download.
