Creo Six Degrees 2.0 Supports More Email Programs — Creo has released a major update to Six Degrees, their utility for connecting related email messages, files, and people for coherent project management. The most important change is that Six Degrees 2.0 now works with email programs beyond Microsoft Entourage, including Apple Mail and Eudora. It achieves this functionality by communicating directly with your POP or IMAP server to retrieve a copy of every message. Once Six Degrees 2.0 has imported mail into its own database or retrieved and indexed messages, it provides a Web browser-based interface for tracking a project’s related email messages, attached files, and more. Other features include full-text searching of messages, to-do lists, and integration with Creo Tokens (see "Creo Eases File Sharing with Tokens" in TidBITS-707). A somewhat-limited Six Degrees 2.0 Lite Edition is a free 13.4 MB download; the $100 Personal Edition (a free update for Six Degrees 1.x customers) adds additional features such as support for an unlimited number of projects, importing from Microsoft Entourage (the free version imports only from Eudora and Mail), links that initiate reply/forward actions in your default email client, and the capability to delete items.
