RSVP Mail Processor is the program for automatically sending information, file attachments, replying to incoming messages, automatically deleting email, forwarding e-mail, launching an external program, extracting data and more. When the program starts you get a window with a Setup button, Start button (program starts in active mode so this button is used only to put it in active mode again), Stop button (suspends operation until you click Start), Reset button(clears cache and restarts operation), Exit b The Setup button is where you start to put in all the agents and information to make the program work for you. I will skip the Mail Agents tab for now and get back to it later. The Settings tab is where you put the information to be used in Outgoing Messages. The fields include Name (optional), Organization (optional), E-mail Address (required), Reply-To (optional), Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server, Check Incoming Mail Every __ minutes, Ignore Message Larger Than __ kilobytes, and Log All Events to a File. Now back to the Mail Agents tab. This is where you turn RSVP into a powerful program instead of a simple mail checker. The buttons here are self explanatory so I will only get into what happens when you click the Add button. The first tab is General. The first thing you do here is name the agent this can be anything you choose. Next is the criteria the message must meet to run the agent. The choices are AND/OR; Date, Message, Recipient, Reply-To, Sender, or Subject; contains, does not contain, is, !can be what ever you type in. The final tab is Actions which is where you tell RSVP what to do if it matches your criteria. Your choices here are Delete Incoming Message, Forward Incoming Message, Play a sound, Run an External Program, Save Message Data to a file, and Send Outgoing Message. Each choice will bring up a window where you can enter the appropriate information. You can perform more than one action on the message also.

This can be a powerful program and has an easy to use interface to customize it to your needs. You have to have Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to read the manual because it is a .pdf file. The shareware version comes with a 30 day evaluation.
