After 6 months of feedback and contributions by the folks over in the IMFAM workspace, I’m happy to announce the final release of the 2nd IMF Archive Manager.


For those that don’t know, IMFAM is a C# GUI tool released as shared source on GotDotNet that provides a view of the IMF archive directory and the eml files in it.  It also has a preview pane that displays decoded P2 mail message properties as well as the entire raw message.  There are 5 actions: Refresh, Delete, Resubmit, Copy to Clip, and Report.  Refresh reloads the view as well as the raw message.  Delete deletes the selected message.  Resubmit moves the message to the pickup directory where it is resubmitted to the MTA and delivered.  Copy to Clip copies the entire raw message to the clipboard in case you want to paste it in another window.  Report creates a new message, attaches the selected message as an attachment, and then sends it to the recipient listed in the report settings.  In addition it optionally strips P1 headers, x-SCL header, and deletes the message if so configured in the report settings.  The report feature is useful if you want to send the UCE to reporting organizations such as http://www.spamcop.net.


Version 2 adds support for 4 languages; French, German, Spanish (Mexico), and Traditional Chinese (Taiwan).  It also provides a new List View that allows the messages to be previewed similar to a mail client as well as supporting multi-select operations.  Head over to http://workspaces.gotdotnet.com/imfarchive for a full list of features and to download the tool.

I just completed a commercial tool which also handles IMF archives, but with a different approach. Sirana SpamCenter uses a Windows service to collect the archived spam and add it to a database, and then users log on to a web portal to view their quarantine and manage messages. In addition to the typical release/delete activities, users can create personal safe lists and blocks lists that automatically handle incoming messages.

It's in beta now, and I'd appreciate any comments you have. http://www.sirana.com/products/spamcenter/
