macOS applications that has stood the test of time

When I got my new Mac mini with a Apple silicon M2 I decided it was time for a complete reinstall of my system and apps. I believe the last time I did this was when Snow Leopard was released back in 2009.

MailMate - The email client for the rest of us

I have now been using MailMate for about 10 month and I’m more than pleased with it. Everything good I wrote about in MailMate replaces GyazMail after four years is still true. The latest 64 bit beta build is rock solid and consumes less than 200 MB of RAM with 60000+ messages.

MailMate replaces GyazMail after four years

Four years ago I replaced Eudora with GyazMail and wrote about it in GyazMail replaces Eudora after 15 years and Two weeks with GyazMail. Now GyazMail has been replaced with MailMate. After moving all my locally stored mail to a local IMAP server switching mail client got a lot easier.

Running dovecot as a local only IMAP server on OS X

I prefer to store (archive) my mail locally. After moving my mail between mail clients a couple of time to many I decided to set up a local IMAP server. This will give me a mail client independent local storage that is in a standard format and future proof.

This is a followup to GyazMail replaces Eudora after 15 years. I have now used GyazMail for two weeks and it’s working well but has room for improvement. What I really like with GyazMail GyazMail is rock solid and fast, it feels like software I can depend upon.

GyazMail replaces Eudora after 15 years

I have been using Eudora as my mail client since 1995, except for a couple of years when I used Claris Emailer. This week I made the switch to GyazMail. (Also check out the followup Two weeks with GyazMail).

Launchbar, Keyboard Maestro and Typinator - It's all about fewer keystrokes

I have made my way through a substantial list of automation software over the years. Currently I’m using the following three: LaunchBar from Objective Developments €24. Keyboard Maestro from Stairways €28. Typinator from Ergonis €20. LaunchBar 5 has since a few month replaced the discontinued Quicksilver for me.

BBEdit - My text editor of choice

I noticed that I have never on my blog mentioned the text editor I use. This is a bit surprising since it’s where I do almost all my writing, and all my coding of course. More then 10 years ago I started to use Bare Bones free BBEdit Lite.

The dog is running again - I'm back with Fetch

The first Internet application I ever used was Fetch, a FTP-client for the Mac. This was in the early 1990s, before the web. The IT-staff at the University showed me how to use it for downloading shareware and freeware from Info-Mac and other places.
