I just read that CakeMail is now available for public beta testing. CakeMail is a white label email marketing platform that allows agencies and marketing companies (et al) to better run their clients’ email marketing campaigns.
Why has it taken me
so long to discover the joys of IMAP? I converted the other day because I was curious and have continued to be frustrated by POP in a multi-client multi-location email environment… and other than the fact that it doesn’t work with Yahoo Mail (my webmail client of choice) or GMail (what I would prefer to use, though it doesn’t work for me very well), it’s a revelation.
Why oh Why can’t
Apple Mail allow me to navigate with the arrow keys the way NetNewsWire does? The relationship between the feeds pane and each feed’s posts in NNW is so fast and intuitive; whereas there seems to be no relationship between the mailboxes pane and the message panes in Apple Mail.
I don’t often write about
new software, but Scott Morrison has just released MailTags 1.2, which adds a whole bunch of useful features to both Apple Mail and iCal. Tim Gaden (of Hawk Wings) and Boris have more information.
Intuitively and having played around with it a bit I can see the utility of this, but I’m curious about things that others have found useful to do using MailTags. So – what would/do you use it to do?
A couple of weeks ago
I asked for advice on how to filter emails such that known spam was deleted immediately from the server, while keeping a record in case of false positives. I hoped to do this directly in Apple Mail, but based on my research I found this to be impossible.
So I’ve gone back to using Spamfire, a program from Matterform that does just what I need. I have used it for a while, but in the past few months I started having more and more problems with it – in particular, it seemed to corrupt the mail spool on the POP server I was using. I hope it works better this time around.
