Bare Bones Software released an update to Mailsmith, its e-mail client software for Mac OS X. While the version number increment was small, the feature changes in the new release are not: Bare Bones now includes SSL encryption technology and other features.
Mailsmith uses technology derived from Bare Bones Software’s popular text editing software, BBEdit, to offer users editing, filtering and searching capabilities. It also features support for AppleScript, integration with Mac OS X v10.2 Jaguar’s Address Book and other features.
The new version of Mailsmith, v2.0.1, adds support for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, and can now use Apple Address Book in mail filter rules. Other changes and improvements have also been made.
What’s more, new copies and upgrades to Mailsmith includes a copy of SpamSieve, the client-side spam filtering software created by Michael Tsai. SpamSieve adds Bayesian spam filtering to Mailsmith and other popular Mac e-mail clients.
Mailsmith 2.0.1 requires Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later (10.2.6 or later recommended). The Mailsmith 2.0.1 update is
available for download from Bare Bones Software’s Web site. A new license costs US$99 (crossgrades from other applications are available) and upgrades from Mailsmith 1.x cost $49.
