Mail Act On 2 update
Indev Software has released the latest version of its Apple Mail organization tool, Mail Act-On 2. The update offers a faster interface, with an option to lock the window open to allow multiple rules to be applied successively. Users can retrace their steps with a new undo function. Keystrokes can be used to perform actions on messages with the enhanced interface or by using control key combinations, which is claimed to allow the management functions without a mouse. The outbox now supports rules to organize sent messages.
The program allows keystrokes to move or copy messages between folders, even if a rule doesn't exist for a particular box. Recent destinations are stored to allow quicker access to the frequently visited boxes. The architecture supports third party "extras" to be added, such as the included "MailTags" function for tagging messages. Mail Act-On 2 is available now from the company for $20.
