On the new “MacVoices” (http://www.macvoices.com), Mac expert Joe Kissell looks at taking control of your email.

Kissell has recently authored three new or newly updated Take Control titles, “Take Control of Spam with Apple Mail,” “Take Control of Apple Mail in Snow Leopard” and “Take Control
of Mail on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.” To celebrate, he offers a tour of what each offers to users who are interested in bringing their email to its knees.

Kissell talks about controlling spam on the server side and how you can use Google to accomplish this, and how Snow Leopard-wide system changes have enhanced Apple’s Mail program. Security is on everyone’s mind; he explains why digital signatures and encryption
received so much attention, and why his titles all offer so much more than what Apple lists as new in the current version of Mail.

For the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owner, Joe attacks email from both the philosophical and practical perspectives, discussing how to leverage Google’s many email capabilities and filters without losing your domain identity, why we may see third-party email clients on the iPad, and much more.

“MacVoices” is an Internet show and podcast that delivers in-depth discussions with the most influential people in the Mac industry, as well as “the individuals who are out there making it happen on the front lines of the global Apple community,” according to host Chuck Joiner.
