Another take on souping up a Mac mini server »

A Mac mini server is a great thing to have on your local network. There are many, many wonderful jobs they can perform, or they can simply be a convenient media server for your home videos. Whatever purpose a Mac mini server holds, there’s a lot of possible improvements to be made on models that shipped with spinning platter drives.

Dan Moren, Six Colors, wrote about his experience of upgrading his Mac mini server from an old hard disk drive and 4GB of RAM to a new custom Fusion drive machine with 16GB of RAM. Like Dan explains, the performance and “everyday use” gains of doing this kind of upgrade are astounding and affordable.

​Boost Your Apple Mail With MailButler (Sponsor) »


Have you ever wanted to schedule your email rather than send it right away? Or wondered if the person has actually opened your email?

MailButler allows you to schedule an email to be sent at a specific date and time. Thus, you can fulfill lots of tasks beforehand by writing several emails at once and letting MailButler ensure their scheduled delivery later.

Or another familiar situation: you sent an email several days ago, but still haven’t received a reply. What is the best way to react in this case?

Email Tracking, MailButler new feature, allows you to know if the recipient has actually opened your email. If you know that the first email has already been read, you can proceed with a follow-up. If it has not been read, you should rather wait a few days.

There are 6 other cool features that MailButler adds to your Apple Mail, such as the ability to convert emails to notes, upload email attachments regardless of size, and more. The developers plan to add new things to this list.
