Outspring has released
Outspring Mail, a new e-mail client for Mac OS X. It costs $95.
Outspring Mail is from the same company that now owns the venerable QuickMail series of Mac messaging products. It uses an interface that similar to Apple’s own Mail application, and includes POP, IMAP, SMTP and SSL support. It can also import e-mail from Mail and QuickMail products.
What makes Outspring Mail different, according to the developer, are features that help automate e-mail processing. The software “learns” by observing the user’s filing habits, then it begins to suggest folders or mailboxes to file messages.
Unique functions include “Message Deferment” acts as a “snooze button” for incoming mail, so you can deal with incoming messages at a later date and time you set yourself. “Intelligent Summary” is a special view mode that lets you review e-mail by summarizing content.
Similar to Leopard Mail, Outspring Mail can detect data on incoming messages, so phrases like “next Friday” can be processed to create an event in iCal.
The software incorporates a spam filter that was created leveraging experience Outspring gained working on their Spamcaster and Spamphibian anti-spam products.
Specific system requirements were not available as Macworld posted this article, but the developer notes that Outspring Mail is a Universal binary and Leopard-compatible.
