Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

SpamSieve 1.2.1 Adds Email Clients

Send Article to a Friend

SpamSieve 1.2.1 Adds Email Clients -- Apple has made a big deal out of the spam filtering method that its Mail program uses to weed out unwanted email. Now, a similar technology is available for a variety of email clients with Michael Tsai's SpamSieve 1.2.1. Put simply, SpamSieve learns to recognize the particular spam you receive based on the spam and legitimate messages you use to train it. What's especially nice about SpamSieve is that all the training and dealing with spam takes place in your email program, rather than in an unfamiliar interface. The latest version adds support for Eudora 5.2 and Emailer (SpamSieve also supports Entourage, Mailsmith, and PowerMail), decodes Base64 and quoted-printable text parts, and offers better logging and manipulating of the corpus of words that it uses. SpamSieve 1.2.1 is a free upgrade for owners of previous versions; new registrations cost $20 shareware, so you can test it before paying. SpamSieve requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later, and is a 1.4 MB download. [JLC]
