[prMac.com] Sursee, Switzerland - uncomplex gmbh today released Mailplane 2.1, which sports new features, including multiple email signatures and support for the "inserting images" and "offline Gmail" lab features. Acting as a site-specific web browser for Google's Gmail, Mailplane is a fully-fledged mail client for the desktop. It integrates the Gmail web interface into the Mac experience, offering users the best of both worlds. And since Mailplane doesn't change the way Gmail works, its unique features can still be enjoyed, including conversations, labels, global access, endless storage, spam protection and the fast and powerful Google search.
Mailplane supports multiple Gmail and Google Apps accounts and lets the user easily switch between accounts without the need to sign in or out. With full iLife integration, users can browse and attach files from their iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom and iTunes libraries. The integrated screenshot tool lets the user take and attach a window, screen or region.
Users can 'drag and drop' files and images on the dock application icon, or any Mailplane window, to create and upload attachments. And with automatic photo optimization, image attachments can be converted and resized to make the message even smaller.
Mailplane can play a user-defined sound, as well as show the number of unread messages in the application icon, account drawer and status menu item. And because Mailplane monitors all Gmail accounts, unread message counters and message subjects are displayed for each account. For even more appealing notifications, Mailplane fully integrates with Growl. Mail can be sent directly from your Mac address book, Safari or any application showing "mailto" URLs.
Mailplane 2.1 highlights include:
* Multiple email signatures for different "from" email addresses. Signatures can be HTML formatted and can display images
