AutoShare 3.0 Released -- Mikael Hansen has released version 3.0 of AutoShare, his freeware mailing list manager and auto-responder that works with Eudora Internet Mail Server and Stalker Internet Mail Server. Major new features include support for internal and external subscriber databases, support for MIME digests, additional remote email administration commands, and support for more bounce formats. The most interesting feature is the support for subscriber databases, which enable you to add your own fields. AutoShare communicates with external databases via scripting, which provides good flexibility but can suffer from poor performance. AutoShare 3.0 is a 1.9 MB download. [ACE]
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 firstname.lastname@example.org address in the criterion.
