We just came back from Macworld, and the seminar by Joe Kissell on Apple Mail for Power Users had some great tips on software you can purchase to enhance the functionality of Mail. Here are our top 5 Apple Mail plugins from his presentation.
1. Mail Act-On
This plugin costs $30 and lets you schedule your emails to be delivered at a specific time (as long as your Mac is on, of course). Plus allows you to create special mail rules.
2. Attachment Tamer
This plugin costs $15 and lets you have much more control over your email attachments, including automatic resizing and creating icons instead of inline attachments.
This plugin costs 9 Euros and is great if you always want to send large files via email. If you put an attachment into an email, it automatically uploads the attachment to your Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or YouSendIt account and replaces the attachment with a link in the email.
Costs $30 and lets you tag messages with multiple tags, so you can find them easily later. You can also tell it to remind you about a specific email in a certain number of days. (Doesn’t work well with Google mail.)
Costs $30 and does an amazing job of filtering out spam from your incoming email.
