Reduplicator v1.0.1 is now available

Reduplicator is an EIMS filter for archiving email using custom rules and criteria. Reduplicator allows email to be archived based on who it is coming from, who it is going to, what IP address it is coming from, and the use of authentication. Archiving location can also be customized to organize archived email by domain, username, and current date values. It is known to be compatible with EIMS v3.2.0 and above, though it may very well be compatible with EIMS v3.0.0 and above; no direct testing for compatibility with these older versions of EIMS has been done at this time. There are no expectations that Reduplicator is compatible with versions of EIMS before EIMS v3.0.0 at all.

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

When the Reduplicator filter is first installed and EIMS is first launched, the filter will create a preferences documents (entitled Reduplicator_Preferences.txt). This preferences document contains default settings for options in the Reduplicator filter. The contents of the preferences document has full documentation for each setting. A complete description of every preference for the Reduplicator filter is included in the Reduplicator PDF manual.

The Reduplicator rules document stores the actual rules, conditions and criteria basically, by which the Reduplicator filter will use to determine whether any particular email will be archived. It also contains the location and conditions by which an email will be archived to. And, it also contains information on whether subsequent rules in the rules document can process and potentially archive a particular email (meaning, yes, a single email can be archived multiple times by use of specific combinations of rule values).

The most important feature of the Reduplicator rules document is that it dynamically reloads after any changes made in it. This means, Reduplicator 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, Reduplicator will reload the rules for subsequent use in the filter.

When Reduplicator archives an email, the archive document(s) created by Reduplicator are in the standard EIMS incoming mail format. This means, to reprocess archived email and have it sent through EIMS again, merely copying the archived document(s) into the EIMS :Incoming Mail: directory is all that is required. This format consists of the full body of the email being in the data fork of the document as raw text (binary) and the envelope information being stored in the resource fork of the document.
