Nisus Software has released InfoClick 1.1 (http://infoclick.com), an update of the US$15 email search tool for use with Apple’s Mail application. adds new features while addressing some issues. Among the new features are:
° Allows searching by Apple Mail accounts, mailboxes, and folders;
° Negated searches allow finding items that do not contain a particular selector (eg: word, contact, etc). For example, you can negate a search term by typing an exclamation mark before you type the term (eg: “!pluto” searches for all emails that do not contain the word “pluto”);
° Can search for emails in trash folders using a “Trashed Emails” selector;
° Added “Email” menu to the main menu bar with some convenient commands like Reply and Forward.
InfoClick lets you navigate through your emails to see the words, contacts, and information within. According to Nisus President and CEO Jerzy Lewak, InfoClick “knows” precisely what words you’ve used, so there’s no guessing; it offers a guided process of progressively narrowing down the matches in a series of simple choices.
That means you can’t ever produce a search with zero matches, he adds For example, when you’re searching for all emails containing a particular word, InfoClick would show the completions connection, connexion, and (the misspelled) connecsion, if you’d actually used those words in your emails.
Lewak says that InfoClick offers additional features to make searching your emails easier. For example, to see all emails received from educational organizations in the US, type .edu in the From field. With a single click, you can narrow-down your search to only those emails that had an attachment, and/or those received in a given date range, and/or those that contain specific words. You can choose, as alternatives, all displayed word spellings used in the emails, so you don’t miss an email because of spelling errors.
The application also offers a note editor, allowing you to collect and organize links to emails, files, web pages, and other URLs. Notes are completely searchable.
InfoClick 1.1 is available now at the InfoClick web site and the Mac App Store for US$15. A 15-day demo is also available from the same page. The update is free for current owners of InfoClick.
