Emailer Lite vs v1.1v3
[Q] Is the "Claris Emailer Lite 1.1v4" version better (&/or newer) than "Claris Emailer 1.1v3"
[A] Emailer Lite is the stripped-down version at 1.6 MB versus 2.3 MB. They are about the same vintage, dated 25 Oct 2020 and 23 Sep 2020 respectively. I think the Lite edition originally appeared as part of the Apple Internet Connection Kit. It is designed to handle one Internet account only, whereas Emailer 1.1v3 can cope with five accounts.

- Speed. It's so much faster filing, deleting & quitting.
- Contextual menus. Neat CMM trick: control-click on the Connection Status window to disable schedules, connect now, connect again.
- Duplicate command is built in. Contextual menu contains a Duplicate command to make a copy in the same folder; no need for AppleScripts.
- If you use utilities like DragStrip or OneClick, it'll let you drag any file on the EM icon (or some representative icon) to create attachments. (See conversations on drag feature below)
- Relocatable folders. You can rearrange folders using drag and drop. For instance, you can drag a subfolder from one folder to another.
- Redirect message. You forward a message when you want to send a message you have received to someone else. You redirect a message when you want to send a message you have received to someone else and you want the final recipient to receive the message as if it had been sent to them directly by the person who sent it to you. (From Help file)
- When you view a list of folders in a pop-up menu, such as when you file a message, you see the whole folder path for each subfolder.
- Claris Emailer doesn't check the spelling of text you are quoting, unless you specifically select the quoted text.
Cool new MIME stuff in 2.0v3
(By Dan Crevier)
- MIME digests are supported. If a list has MIME digests, the parts will be correctly decoded (so you won't see quoted-printable garbage), and you'll also get separators.
- Multipart/alternative is handled. If you get an html message from someone, it usually has a plain text version and an html version, and it's labeled as multipart/alternative, which means the email program is supposed to choose the best one to display. Emailer used to keep the html as an attachment, but now it just throws it away, so it'll look just like a text message.
- Emailer wraps messages the same way regardless of what encoding format is used. That means you can't use the trick of sticking an extended character in a message to get it to have soft wrapping, but it means that it follows the standard, and people with old versions of Netscape won't complain about lines not being wrapped.
- If a part isn't given a name, it chooses a name based on the type based on the type,using Internet Config. For example, if it's image/gif, it'll be called Enclosed.gif. It used to be called MIME Enclosure or something regardless of the type. Also, the type of the part is properly labeled when sending messages. So, if you send a gif, and don't compress it, it'll be labeled image/gif where I think it used to be labeled application/octet-stream.
- It also handles enclosures encoded with quoted-printable.
Changes to Address Book
- The address book is now scriptable.
- Groups in the Address Book are now linked to individual contacts. When you update a contact's information, the information is also updated in any groups the contact belongs to.
- Contacts can be hidden from the Address Book, allowing you to have groups whose members aren't displayed in the Address Book. In addition, you can hide infrequently used contacts so that they don't appear in the type-ahead feature when you address outgoing messages.
- You can import and export groups using the new import/export formats.
- If you click on the plus button to add an address, and someone with that name already exists, it asks you if you want to add it to the existing contact or create a new one. I find this very useful. I found that I often had many entries for some people because I'd get mail from them with a different address and just hit [+]. There's a whole bunch of checks along these lines.
- Ability to sort the address book on any column.
