Written by Will Mayall.

SPAM Mail Action
Download this file (1k)

Joe says: This mail action is one that I use (and update from time to time as something slips by it) that basically looks at the SUBJECT of the email to determine if the email is spam. If it determines an email to be spam, it labels it accordingly. It is correct 99% of the time. I rarely have to "save" an email message that it thinks is spam but really is not. Note that Mail Actions are installed by dragging the file from the Finder to the list of Mail Actions. Written by Joe Zobkiw.

This package contains two utilities for Compuserve bound EMailer users.

  • <>New Unread Mail in the In Box -- Plays a sound when there is new unread mail in the In Box. Use this script in place of the standard audio notification so that you are only notified for new messages in the In Box, and not for messages that are auto-filed into folders (such as mailing lists).
