Among some of the many bug fixes in this version include:
Fixed a pretty serious Kanji incompatibility
Fixed crash when selecting "Show header" while no message was being displayed
The counters which would display negative numbers have been fixed
There is a now message in the "Empty mail trash" progress dialog instead of just ":"
Upon exporting the Out tray, the "Date modified" was changed!
Fixed bug in the base64 encoder for message bodies, which was meant to cut lines at 76 characters
Fixed bug when hiding the preview pane, where the whole browser would turn grey
Importing from non-Japanese Eudora mailbox files could freeze
Found one case in which Claris Emailer import could time-out. There are others yet to be identified.
Fixed the fact that the "Welcome" window would show under the Import assistant on first launch if you had an old version of PowerMail
