SpamSieve AppleScripts

08 June 2004

Michael Tsai has released a number of useful SpamSieve AppleScripts. As someone who receives several hundred spam messages per day, I've often wished for a tool that would allow me to quickly identify those messages in my spam folder that were considered borderline (or questionable) by SpamSieve. One of Michael's scripts released yesterday, "Apple Mail – Flag Questionable," is perfect for this job – as it will flag all spam messages whose spam probability was above a certain threshold. Thanks Michael!

I have a habit, however, (possibly due to a subconscious concern of letting things get out of hand) of emptying the Trash on my MacOS X system almost as soon as I place something inside. Compost is a utility (implemented as a Preference Pane) that will monitor the items in the Trash, deleting files that are older than a specified number of days. In addition, it will limit the total size of the trash to a configured size. With Compost watching over things, I can safely Trash items, knowing that I've got a month of margin after which they'll disappear.

PGP and Apple Mail Integration

02 June 2004

I only recently learned that the PGP plugin for Apple Mail has a number of useful preferences that are set directly within the PGP application (instead of set within Mail). For example, you can configure PGP to automatically sign all outgoing messages. You can also configure PGP to auto-decrypt incoming encrypted messages. (You will still be prompted for your passphrase — so it's not completely automatic (and shouldn't be.) When receiving an encrypted message, PGP will attempt to retrieve the sender's public key from one of the public key servers. Nice.
