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]
Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note
While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:
- Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
- Hit play.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.
