Thank you! However, this version needs some work - many times that I use it I get the error "The action Run AppleScript encountered an error". I get this in particular with formatted text, it seems. One place where it is 100% reproducible is on the growl beta page: http://growl.info/beta.html HIghlight the red bar with bold upper case text: IMPORTANT: RUN 1.2b3'S GROWL AND GROWLMAIL.... and run the Service and you will see the error. When the Service works, it works great! Thanks very much for implementing my suggestion.
