Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

 
 

Enhanced Spam Blocking in EIMS 2.2.1

Send Article to a Friend

Enhanced Spam Blocking in EIMS 2.2.1 -- Qualcomm has released version 2.2.1 of Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS) for the Mac OS. In addition to bug fixes and feature improvements, EIMS 2.2.1 sports a Dialup Manager to better handle server connections using non-dedicated lines (including those managed by Vicomsoft Internet Gateway) and optional mail filters designed to help block spam. EIMS 2.2.1's filters can reject messages with improper message IDs, that appear by their subjects to be advertisements, or that originate from servers listed in the MAPS Realtime Blackhole List (MAPS RBL), the MAPS Dialup User List (MAPS DUL) or the Open Relay Behavior-modification System (ORBS). These three independent services identify computers and networks that tolerate or actively distribute spam, are part of an ISP's dial-up pool (and thus shouldn't be sending mail to you directly), or are known to have an open mail relay likely to be abused by spammers. Use of these filters is completely voluntary and isn't likely to eliminate all spam sent to your server, but it can make a significant dent. We've had good luck using some of these filters here at TidBITS, although Qualcomm should more fully document anti-spam techniques that EIMS supports. EIMS 2.2.1 is a free upgrade to registered owners of EIMS 2.x; a 495K updater is available for users of EIMS 2.2; earlier versions of EIMS 2.x need to be updated to EIMS 2.2 before updating to 2.2.1 - updaters are available on Qualcomm's Web site. EIMS can be purchased electronically for $249 and requires a 68030-based Mac or better, System 7.1, and Open Transport 1.1.2. [GD]
