X-Ray Mail Assistant is a tiny program which will assist you to manage your mail more efficiently. Major objectives of X-Ray are: provide privacy by removing unwanted mail headers, make it convenient to switch between several different incoming and outgoing mail servers without reconfiguring your mail software, and to operate stably and unobtrusively.
Reviewing 22.214.171.124 Beta (Jul 18, 2006)
The program execution is fine... I had no problems running it or using it. Which is why I gave it a 4.
My concern lies in the fact that it can mangle outgoing headers. In today's soceity, anything that we can do to help spammers do their craft really needs to be limited or stopped altogether. This tool allows almost anyone to become a spammer with little more than a legitimate mail client and a little bit of imagination.
Outbound email headers should , IMHO, be read-only for this very reason. Not that someone wouldn't find a way around it, obviously, but at least it's a little bit of deterent for the less experienced, would-be spammers out there.
