Kiwize v1.0.0 is now available

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.

There is a Mac OS 9 version and a Mac OS X version of the Kiwize filter. These are entitled Kiwize and Kiwize X, respectively. Both builds of the Kiwize filter are available in the single download archive available from this web site.

When the Kiwize filter is first installed and EIMS is first launched, the filter will create a preferences documents (entitled Kiwize_Preferences.txt). This preferences document contains default settings for options in the Kiwize filter. It also contains the location of the Kiwize rules document to use to manage the actions taken by the Kiwize filter. The contents of the preferences document has full documentation for each setting. A complete description of every preference for the Kiwize filter is included in the Kiwize PDF manual.

The Kiwize rules document stores the actual rules, conditions and criteria basically, by which the Kiwize filter will use to determine whether any particular email will be archived.

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.

The Kiwize rules document has a set format documented in the full PDF manual. A sample Kiwize rules document is included within the Kiwize archive that shows what this format is. This sample rules document also includes example rules that may be useful in your use of the Kiwize filter. The writing of Kiwize rules is the key to taking full advantage of the Kiwize filter, and we have made the condition and format for writing rules as simple as possible while still maintaining as much flexibility as possible in configuration options.
