NotifyMail is a Macintosh system extension for use with Apple Internet Mail Server (AIMS) which listens for a finger request. When it receives one, it sends an AppleEvent to Emailer to check the user's mail. It can also be configured to run any application upon notification, and has an optional mail indicator/counter. It requires System 7.0 or later and MacTCP 1.1 or later, and is shareware. NotifyMail now works with LetterRip v2. Written by Scott Gruby.

Mail merge has been a key feature in word processing applications for years because it makes form letters and other documents appear more personal. Now, OutBox applies the same concept to email. With OutBox's powerful email merge features, you can create a single email, address it to a group of people, and have OutBox automatically personalize the message for each person. In addition, powerful 'Merge Actions' let you send customized email based on an individual's personal information. For example, you could send customized email based on a person's computer platform, job title, marital status, political party, zip code, and more.

OutBox works in conjunction with Emailer or Eudora to send your email. Customized email generated by OutBox is "loaded" into one of these two popular email programs and sent the next time you send email. From Spinfree.

Internet & Email Scripts 1.1
Download this file (36k)

Five AppleScripts for OT/PPP and Emailer. The scripts have been extensively tested with Emailer 1.1v3 through 2.0.

  • OT/PPP Connect
  • OT/PPP Disconnect
  • OT/PPP Emailer Scheduled Task
  • OT/PPP Emailer Get & Send Mail
  • OT/PPP Eudora Get & Send Mail

The last 3 scripts are different from most similar scripts in that when they finish, they restore the PPP connect/disconnect status that existed before they were run. They do not, therefore arbitrarily abort a background PPP process like downloading, but they will disconnect if PPP is not otherwise in use.

The Read-Me file also has lots of useful information about setting up Emailer Schedules, and about the Script Editor. Written by W. John Carlsen.

If you use them, please pay the author. Written by Christopher Swan.
