Mailsmith 1.5 also incorporates a new filter creation process that enables users to create filters in one step. It can import messages from Apple’s Mail.app application, Claris Emailer and Qualcomm’s Eudora software, and also supports drag and drop import of “mbox”-formatted mailboxes.
The “Report to SpamCop” menu option and filter action sends copies of selected messages to the user’s assigned reporting address, to help facilitate the administration of unsolicited e-mail the originating network’s administrators, according to the developer.
Other new features include better message sorting, support for draft messages, “approximate” text translation of HTML messages, random signature support, enhanced contextual menu support, multiple POP monitor windows, and the ability to view image and movie attachments as display windows.
Under the hood, Mailsmith 1.5 also gets a lot of changes — it now sports object model scripting support for text, and recordability and attachability. The new version also gains the Perl-compatible regular expression (PCRE) grep engine first introduced in BBEdit 6.5.
A Glossary function, floating windows, keyboard assignments, and numerous performance and user interface changes have also been made.
Mailsmith 1.5 requires Mac OS 9.0 or later, with CarbonLib 1.5 or later. It runs natively under Mac OS X 10.1 or later.
Mailsmith 1.5 has a suggested retail price of US$99. A special discounted price of $69 is available from now until the end of May directly from the company; after that, the cross-upgrade will cost $79. Upgrades from previous version costs $39.
