Email Magician, a utility for Eudora, has been updated to version 2.0, which adds a Setup Wizard with 37 screens designed to teach users the program’s features while they configure the software for their e-mail habits.
The program checks for approximately 1,500 spam characteristics when it generates hundreds of spam filters and “possible spam” filters customized to individual needs, according to
. And by detecting the people you regularly correspond, Email Magician automatically creates filters, mailboxes, and address book entries. It can also automates tasks related to optimizing your email activities, including one-click archiving of e-mail messages, with options to export to FileMaker and strip HTML from messages.
Email Magician provides an “intelligent” Urgent Filter notepad, where you jot down phrases and e-mail addresses that tell the program to override existing filters and, for example, gather all your “to do” items into a single mailbox for quick disposition. There’s also automatic deletion of empty mailboxes and “orphan-filters.”
