Simplyfile – Essential Outlook Add-On £/€/$


Simplyfile is what I would consider to be an essential Outlook add-on.

Instead of having to create rules in outlook and then maintain them when things change. If you use Simplyfile it can learn where emails should be stored and can adapt when things change.

Another useful feature is with a single click you can change an email from HTML to Text. This is so useful when you receive an email and are not sure where the weblink is trying to take you. By click on the HTML2TEXT button you are able to see the full web link. Very useful.

I have just shared two of the features of Simply File. Here is a list of features from the site

  • Files messages to the right Outlook folder with one click of a mouse.
  • Uses an advanced algorithm to learn and adapt to your filing habits.
  • No configuration wizards, no manual setup, no rules to maintain. It just works!
  • Works on sent and received messages.
  • Removes Outlook’s “New Mail” icon when filing a message
    (small things like that make a huge difference in usability).
  • Saves sent messages in any Outlook folder, including Public Folders.
  • Turn messages into Tasks and Appointments with one click of a mouse.
  • Easily convert HTML messages to plain text format.
  • Highly optimized for speed and size (Download is only 560KB).

You can download the software as a free 30 day trial to see what you think.

Pricing is as follows

£20.45/€25.70/$39.95

Secure Password Generator

If you are looking for a high security password generator for your wireless system or pc passwords, then I have found Gibson Research Ultra High Security Password Generator to be very good

“Every time this page is displayed, our server generates a unique set of custom, high quality, cryptographic-strength password strings which are safe for you to use”

You are then presented with three options:

64 random hexadecimal characters (0-9 and A-F)
63 random printable ASCII characters
63 random alpha-numeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9)

Just copy and paste the password that you want to use.
