  •  06 Nov 2008 20:28

    Release Notes: This release is not a milestone, and probably won't change the way you archive email, but there are some features that are worth a try. The option to customize the archive mailbox name was added, as well as support for logical and regular expressions based archiving. Code cleanups and revisions were performed.

    •  23 Mar 2005 21:03

      Release Notes: This release features an improved engine to generate list mode's reports. The output can be safely redirected to a log file or piped trough a pager without odd results. A regular expressions based filter was added, which allows some mailboxes or directories to be filtered while archiving. Some minor fixes and cleanups were performed as well.

      •  12 Jan 2005 21:54

        Release Notes: This release features the ability to use the "Date:" header to age a message, and thus perform archiving based on the informations of that header. Small bugfixes, code cleanups, and output improvements were made.

        •  19 Sep 2004 14:46

          Release Notes: This is a major features release. More options are now available to archmbox users. It is now possible to trim archiving even more than before, skipping symbolic links and mailboxes smaller than a user-specified size. Output was improved, providing the user with more meaningful information and an overall summary of archiving if required. Bugfixes and code cleanups were performed as well.

          •  19 May 2004 02:50

            Release Notes: This release supports Mac OS X and *BSD systems natively. It also supports Windows if CygWin is installed. More option were added, and it is now possible to keep unread or flagged messages, refine archiving using time beside date, and use any header for a regexp based archiving. A new copy mode was added, which allows you to copy messages from the source mailbox without actually modifying it. Many improvements were made to mailbox parsing and handling, along with some bugfixes and code cleanups.

            Hi David,

            thank you very much for you interest in archmbox. I'll surely take your suggestion into account. Stay tuned.

            ciao

            Overall, very nice
            Very handy and easy program to set up. Recommended for those of you (like me) who just want an easy way to delete or archive old e-mails. Works with very little setup, and not very many dependencies on other products.

            My only possible suggestion for a feature for archmbox is to have a way to do regular expressions on any header, instead of the usual from, to, subject, type, etc.

            It is shown in the emails you send... the bcc support is only useful if you run archmbox against your "Sent" mailbox.

            Added support to Bcc?
            And how, precisely, are you doing that? Bcc fields does not show on emails...
