Eudora Internet Mail Server 2.0 Released -- Qualcomm has released the final version of the $199 Eudora Internet Mail Server 2.0 (EIMS), which provides significant enhancements over the still-available free EIMS 1.2. Important improvements include the capability to handle multiple local domains, prevent spammers from relaying through your mail server, administer the server remotely, connect intermittently, and make user information available via Ph. For $299, you can purchase EIMS 2.0 plus five licenses for Eudora Pro. EIMS 2.0 requires a 68030 Mac or higher running System 7.1 or later with Open Transport 1.1.2 or later. A 60-day expiring demo version is also available as a 1.2 MB download. Overall, we've been impressed with EIMS 2.0 in our testing; however, Qualcomm's online purchases are available only in the U.S. and Canada right now and work through Software.net. Our one experience with Software.net's unlocking scheme and our subsequent interaction with customer service was terrible. Our advice: save all email relating to your order in case problems develop.

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.
