Publog says the newest version of MailSteward and MailSteward Pro includes the ability to index "any and all fields" in the product's database. The company says v8.05 is the "ultimate email archiving solution for the Mac" -- and could prove especially useful for schools. Under a 2006 US Supreme Court ruling, companies, government agencies and public school districts must maintain systems for storing and retrieving e-mail for possible use in court cases. Prolog says MailSteward provides a less expensive, easier-to-maintain solution for schools and other users who must maintain archives.
MailSteward Pro can be set to automatically archive all incoming and outgoing email for schools or companies running their own mail servers. For organizations that do not have an email server, individual users can run a copy of MailSteward Pro to archive email into a central SQL database on their network. Other new features include bug fixes, a new archive history log and searchable raw e-mail headings.
The Universal Binary application was written in native Cocoa and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. MailSteward Lite costs $25, MailSteward sells for $50 and MailSteward Pro is available for $100. Upgrades are available for existing users.
