Rocketbox 1.0 attempts to improve Mail search

updated 04:40 pm EST, Tue January 26, 2010

Adds speed, better filters

Central Atomics has released the first version of Rocketbox, a supplemental tool for Apple's Mail software. It attempts to make Mail search more efficient, for instance by using its own faster engine, and adding the ability to search by person. Important people are identified through a scan of earlier messages.

The app can also filter by time, folder or account, and display inline previews which highlight why a message was included in search results. More technically-savvy users can employ a query language to create their own searches. Rocketbox costs $15, and is available in separate versions for Leopard and Snow Leopard.
