In case you missed the announcements in Juiced.GS or Usenet newsgroup comp.sys.apple2, prolific Apple IIGS programmer Ewen Wannop has released a new version of Spectrum Automated Mailer, or SAM2. Ewen’s complete announcement is attached.

**NEW** โ€“ SAM2 email client for the IIgs!

From the stable of Spectrum, SAFE2, and SNAP, the venerable email client SAM morphs into a sleek new SAM2.

SAM2 is a stand-alone Freeware email client that uses POP3 and SMTP mail servers to retrieve and send your email.

The Main SAM2 Features:

  • Multiple email accounts
  • Multiple Mailboxes
  • Address Book
  • Custom Filters
  • Junk Filter
  • Send and Receive attachments
  • HTML display for messages with HTML
  • Download URL linked files directly
  • Simple Text Editor

To use SAM2, you will need a IIGS running System 6.0.1, Marinetti 3.0.b3 or later, and a connection to the Internet. SAM2 works best with an Ethernet connection, such as with the Uthernet card, though it can be used with any TCP/IP Link Layer that Marinetti supports.

Installation instructions, the SAM2 manual, and all the necessary files, are included within the archive. Optionally you can also download a deluxe PDF version of the manual.
