CTM Development has updated their PowerMail e-mail application to version 4.0.1, which the company says contains 12 enhancements over and above the 38 new features contained in
PowerMail 4.0 that was released last month.
Version 4.0.1 adds the Apple Mail format to export options and a button to the bottom of the message window to retrieve partially fetched POP3 messages completely. Now, when sending a message containing a single HTML attachment and a totally empty body, the attachment is smart-encoded as an HTML message.
AppleScript Properties have been added for partial status, online status and “retrieve again completely” flags. (However, changing the online status or “retrieve again completely” flags won’t work when a POP connection is pending or active; as a result, these properties can’t be set from a script executed via a filter).
PowerMail 4.0.1 accelerates the import process for message databases in all text formats by up to 500 percent, according to CTM. When importing messages, sorting is now performed at the end instead of while importing, which speeds things up. The AppleScript implementation has been updated to include all of PowerMail 4’s Account properties. There are also various bug fixes and enhancements.
PowerMail 4.0.1 is now available for download. This update is free for anyone having bought PowerMail 3.1.2 since April 15 and for PowerMail 4.0 owners. PowerMail 4 was the first pay upgrade of PowerMail since April 2000; all current registered owners of PowerMail 2 and 3 are eligible for an upgrade at US$29 per copy, with discounts for site licenses. Upgrades can be
ordered online. New copies of PowerMail are $49. It’s available as a single disk image containing both Mac OS X and Classic versions. A 30-day demo is available.
