Claritude Software has announced version 2.0 of their SpeedFiler add-in for Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007. This utility makes processing and clearing your inbox a much less onerous chore and the new version adds a few welcome new features and a blast of performance tuning.
SpeedFiler replaces the built-in Move to Folder command in Outlook with a much more powerful version that word-wheels to a selection of matching folders as you type. It's an intelligent agent in that it learns from your behavior which folders you're filing into most frequently.
Here are the notable enhancements in version 2.0:
- File most incoming messages with a single click.: SpeedFiler analyzes your messages, and predicts where you want to file them.
- Auto-file original messages when you reply: File your outgoing replies and the original messages in a single action.
- Improved Folder Selection Dialog: The ranking of matching folders takes into account the match quality and your past behavior.
- Load Time Reduced by Almost 100%: SpeedFiler now scans the folder tree in the background, so there is no longer a delay when Outlook starts up.
SpeedFiler is available in two version - Standard ($24.95) and Pro ($39.95). A feature comparison can be found on the Claritude site. Upgrades from version 1.x are $14.95 and $24.95 respectively. If you need to process a lot of e-mail and value an empty inbox, this is a utility you ought to take a look at. It's saved me countless hours of time.
