CasaDelGato Sensible Email
Requires Java 1.6 to be installed. (and in the path)
Notes on Usage:
Right-Click is your Friend! (lots of things in right-click menus.)
Normally, the Email Server process will be started by the GUI when you launch it, and shutdown when you exit.
If you want to have the server process running at all times, you can start it first.
If the GUI finds the Server process already running, it will use it, and not shut it down on exit.
Starting the Server:
java -jar EmailServer.jar
Stopping the Server:
java -jar EmailServer.jar -shutdown
The SpamAssassin "spamd" tool is supported. You need to install SpamAssassin and the spamd tool for it,
then set the path to the "spamd" executable in the SPAM Preferences dialog in Sensible Email.
For Windows, you can get SpamAssassin spamd from: http://www.jam-software.com/spamassassin/
For Linux, use: http://spamassassin.apache.org/index.html
If your ISP does spam classification for you, and puts the score into a header field, that can also be used for
SPAM classification rules. (see Preference settings)
The message processing flow for SensibleEmail is a little different from other EMail applications.
1) Do Spam Analysis, Update msg headers, Tag with SPAM or Fishy
2) Process "First" filters
3) Process Account Specific - First filters
4) Process General filters
5) Process Account Specific Last filters.
6) Perform "TAG Set on a Message" specified actions. (SPAM is handled by Tags)
You can create your own Filters and Groups of filters in the Filters panel.
The normal processing is that if a message makes it all the way through the filter chain, and
has NOT been added to a folder, it will then be added to the default INBOX folder.
Note that when you create a new email account, you can have it create an Account Specific inbox,
and a filter will be added to the "Account Specific - Last" filter group to move any messages that
haven't been added to any other folders, into the Account Specific folder.
There is one special case. If a Filter adds the msg to the "Trash" folder, then the msg is automatically
removed from all other folders, and no more Filters will be applied to the message. The only exceptions
to this are if any Tags were applied BEFORE it was added to TRASH, those tag actions will still be applied.
AFTER all the Filters have been run, then the actions defined by the Tags are run.
This allows you to do things like add some messages to a TODO folder (by tagging with TODO), but still
have them end up in the appropriate INBOX as well.
Tags are far more than just a way to highlight a line in the message list. They can be used to set the
colors and font for each individual column, AND can do certain actions on a message when they are added
or removed from a message. Look in the preferences at the Tag configuration.
The default SPAM tag is fairly complex. When you set the SPAM Tag on a message, it will be added to the
SPAM folder, and removed from all other folders.
When you remove the SPAM Tag from a message it gets taken out of the SPAM folder, and added to the system
Note that this is just the default configuration. You can change it any way you want.
