History[edit]

Eureka Email began as a project of Sean O' Connor in mid-2002. He wrote the program and made it available for download in November of that year. Updates were frequent at first, but began to decrease in availability (as the update from 2.0 to 2.1 took over a year). No updates have been released since version 2.2 in 2005.

Features[edit]

  • Grouping: creates a group from a sender and all the people on that e-mail's CC list.
  • Searching: search for all the e-mails sent, all e-mail on the current subject (a "conversation"), and all e-mails from a company (or sender's domain).
  • Spell checker: checks every word and offers corrections
  • Dismiss feature: sends e-mails to a user-specified folder when the user is done with it.
  • Virus/Trojan blocker: questions running a .exe file before launching it (if the sender is not in the address book)
  • Address book: allows assignement of an icon and a sound to a sender.
