This is the README for EnhanceMail.2.0b4.m.NIHS.bs.tgz [Download] [Browse] [Up]

[ Note to archive maintainers: EnhanceMail 2.x versions do _not_
supersede EnhanceMail 1.x versions.  EnhanceMail 1.x works with Mail
3.3.  EnhanceMail 2.x works with Mail 4.0 only.  For the benefit of
Mail 3.3 users please keep a copy of EnhanceMail 1.x available even
after the release of EnhanceMail 2.x ]

This package contains the EnhanceMail bundle.  This bundle extends the
capabilities of Mail 4.0 by adding quoting, signatures, X face
support, a distributed, cached user-image database, full-text indices
PGP encryption/decryption/signatures and a number of other features.
To enable it install EnhanceMail.bundle anywhere in the mail bundle
path (~/Library/Mail, /LocalLibrary/Mail, /NextLibrary/Mail, and the
Mail application wrapper itself) and restart Mail.  The recommended
location for system-wide installation is /LocalLibrary/Mail, for
personal installation ~/Library/Mail.  After installing the bundle, a
more detailed description of its capabilities can be found at the end
of the Mail.app online help.

Note that this bundle will _only_ work with Mail 4.0.  For Mail 3.3
use EnhanceMail 1.x.  Earlier versions of Mail can not be extended by
external bundles.  There are reports of success with running newer
versions of Mail with older versions of Nextstep.  In those cases the
version of EnhanceMail appropriate for the used version of Mail should
also work.  However this remains a matter of trial and error.
