Mail Drop - The Next Generation

Mail Drop 2.0d - by Carl W. Bell
Copyright © 1994-2000 Baylor University

For more Mail Drop information, including the non-development version (1.2d7k, yes it has a "d" in the version number, but it's not a development release), check out the main Mail Drop Web Page.

Disclaimer: This is pre-release software (not even "beta" yet) which means it very likely has bugs and may crash your computer. Use at your own risk. If you do have any problems with it, please let me know.

Here is the "current" version of Mail Drop 2.0. Keep in mind that this is an unfinished product and is missing many basic features, such as printing, saving, address books, and enclosures, so you'll probably want to keep your current e-mail application around for a while. This is being released so that adventurous folks can run it and get a feel for how things are progressing (regressing?), find and report bugs, and provide general feedback, etc.

Note: In case you haven't noticed, there hasn't been an update to Mail Drop in years. Nor will there be any time soon, if ever... Just use Mail.app.

To Do

I think that what I will try to do for now is add "major" features to odd numbered releases, e.g., 2.0d03, 2.0d05, etc. Even numbered releases will be primarily bug fixes. Before reporting a bug, please check to see if it has already been reported (or possibly even fixed! :-) in the release notes for the next version.
