Mailsmith 1.1.4 Now Available from Bare Bones Software
Bedford, MA — July 28, 1999 — Bare Bones Software today announced
the release and immediate availability of Mailsmith 1.1.4, the
company’s powerful Internet email client. This new version of
Mailsmith brings significant enhancements to the message composition
and viewing environments, further extends its scripability, and
addresses an assortment of customer-reported problems. An update is
available free of charge to all Mailsmith customers.
Among its interface refinements, Mailsmith 1.1.4 brings an updated
message composition pane, which provides immediate selection for
sending accounts, as well as simplified correction of entered
addresses, and direct display of X-Face header information.
The message reading environment benefits from a number of changes,
including resizable column widths in mail message lists, and the
option to display unread messages in boldface.
Mailsmith 1.1.4 now gives users the ability to customize keyboard
equivalents for commands in Mailsmith’s menu bar via the use of a new
“Set Menu Keys” command. Most properties of email accounts may now be
accessed by OSA scripts, providing greater automation, and Mailsmith
now supports Open Transport and direct PPP connection management to
make the most of users’ Internet connectivity.
Along with these major enhancements come many other features and
changes to further improve the usability, performance, and reliability
of the application.
