New from C-Command is SpamSieve 2.8.6, a minor update to the popular spam-filtering software. The new release improves SpamSieve’s compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, adds support for Postbox 2.5, and improves overall filtering accuracy. In addition, C-Command has updated its documentation for setting up SpamSieve with Microsoft Outlook, MailMate, and Postbox. Additional work has also gone into the software’s manual and help.

Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages
When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the email@example.com address in the criterion.
