Outspring Inc. on Monday introduced its new Mail client application for Mac, Outspring Mail. The program is designed for professionals and power users alike, offering what it refers to as "adaptive intelligence" features such as a patent-pending method for filing messages and a powerful spam filter claimed to eliminate more than 98 percent of all incoming junk mail. Outspring claims the client offers a new approach to mail management - one that adapts to the user's most common habits for sorting email. Once the program learns these habits it can automatically file messages into folders rather than the user having to do so manually.
All standard mail protocols such as POP3, IMAP, SMTP, and SSL are supported (except MS Exchange). Outspring Mail also integrates with iCal and Address Book to offer a more seamless workflow with Apple's own software. When a user receives an email containing such phrases as "Lets meet on Friday", the day in reference is converted into a link that creates a new iCal entry once clicked.
A free product demo is available for download on Outspring's website, with the full version now available for purchase for $95.
