DisSent (short for "Distribute Sent Mails") is a program for separating your sent mail from a single folder into different folders based on properties of the individual messages in the folder.
DisSent scans your mail storage and proposes a set of actions to tidy up your sent mail folders.
Almost all mail user agents (MUA, "mail clients") I've encountered implement a standard way of handling outgoing messages by placing a copy of every sent message into a certain special folder.
While this might be a fail-safe approach, it is not very useful for you if you belong to those people who work with mail folders and rules to sort incoming mails. Usually, you'll have your rules setup so that an incoming mail from John Doe will be moved into a separate folder, let's say "INBOX.Friends.JDoe". Now if you reply to this mail, your answer is moved to an entirely different folder, and if you want to look up your answer some time later, you'll have to browse through all the mails you sent in the meantime. This is ugly.
Enters DisSent (short for "Distribute Sent Mails"). DisSent scans your mail storage and proposes a set of actions to tidy up your sent mail folders. More precisely, it gives you a list of messages along with proposals on where to move these messages. You can then select the mails you want to move and let DisSent do the actual work.
· The progress monitors should be modal so you can't execute other actions while DisSent is busy.
· The protocol SMTP in the login window doesn't really make sense.
· Java Runtime Environment, version 1.4.
