Kiwize v1.0.0b01 Released by Deep Sky Technologies, Inc.

EIMS Filter for Blocking Email Based on Size Using Custom Rules

Vero Beach, FL - Friday, August 26th, 2005: Deep Sky Technologies, Inc., today announced the release of Kiwize v1.0.0b01 for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. Kiwize is a filter for Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS and EIMS X) to manage blocking of any email based on the total size of the email, accomplished by a fully customizable set of rules.

These rules allow different email addresses, domains, etc., to have different maximum email sizes they are allowed to receive, increasing significantly the robustness and customizability of any EIMS installation.

This first fully public beta release of Kiwize is open to all owners of EIMS and EIMS X and is available for use through the month of September, 2005.

The most convenient feature of the Kiwize rules document is that it dynamically reloads after any changes made in it. This means, Kiwize rules can be added, modified, and/or deleted without having to quit EIMS and launch it again. When any changes to the rules document are detected, Kiwize will reload the rules for subsequent use in the filter.
