iMacros Web Automation and Web Testing, by iOpus, Inc.is a cool tool for automating Web-related tasks. Like other types of macros, you record your actions once and then you can play them back anytime. For example, I created a macro to fill out online form sand it worked perfectly. You can create macros that will take you to certain Web sites automatically. Slick.

iMacros Web Automation and Web Testing can also help you test out a new or recently modified Web page. This can save you hours of tedious work. The program can also gather information from Web pages and save that information for you. The program also worked well when I created macros to automatically login to a Web site. The program is quite easy-to-use and has an intuitive interface. To me that makes it perfect for both new and experienced users.

iMacros Web Automation and Web Testing gives you a quick and easy way to automate tedious tests on the Internet. It can perform logins, store passwords, fill in forms, gather information, and more. In testing it out I also found that I could share my macros between computers. The program has several versions so you can find the one just right for you. So, if you'd like to speed up the process of surfing check it out. It may be just what you need.


Network Password Manager, by Sowsoft, LLCis a slick program for managing all the passwords for your network. This is a true, multi-user application that allows each employee manage their passwords. As a "client-server" application I found it to be very flexible and easy-to-use. The program has standard fields, but also allows for custom fields to be created. One feature I really liked was the ability to backup the passwords, a really nice touch. You can also export and import password lists. Nicely done.

Network Password Manager uses 256-bit AES encryption so it's really secure. It also generate secure passwords. The program has a number of configurable options and I always like that. So, if you company could use a solid manager for passwords take a good look atNetwork Password Manager. Slick.


Ocean Mail Server, by Code Oceanis, as you might expect from the name, a mail server software.I'd received a number of requests for me to review some mail server software and this package really struck me. It's loaded with features and lots of options. That's always a plus in my book. For example, it can deliver mail via POP3, IMAP4, or "Web mail." What makes this software so cool, in my opinion, is that it also lets each individual user configure specific options. For example, a user set up an address book, anti-spam, and even "signatures." I looked at some other mail servers, but they were "wimpy" by comparison.

Ocean Mail Server has a nice interface and the program is intuitive and easy-to-use. I think even a newer user could set up the software. The program has "wizards" that make many steps much easier. In addition to all the basics, the program also has some cool advanced features on board. Some of these include the ability to customize system messages, remote administration, IP access rules, port control, and even SMTP authentication. Very nicely done.

Ocean Mail Server is one of those programs that you can grow into. Easy enough for a novice to get started with, but with the power features and advanced user might want. Running your own mail server can have a lot of benefits and you don't need a high-powered machine to do it. So, if you think you might like to try your hand at running your own mail server, Ocean Mail Server is a perfect place to start. Give it a try, I recommend it.


G-Lock SpamCombat, by G-Lock Softwareis another program for fighting SPAM. About 84% of the mail I receive is unwanted junk email and I suspect you have similar statistics. G-Lock SpamCombat takes an interesting approach and learns from the mail you receive. That is to say, you help it to know what is considered good and what is bad. Like some other anti-spam programs it can get rid of unwanted emails while still on your mail server. To me that's a benefit simply because you don't have to see every piece of junk.

G-Lock SpamCombat lets you create a "whitelist" of thoseyou want to receive emails from as well as a "blacklist" of those you do not want to receive. The blacklist also contains known spam offenders right from the start. Combine these lists and the ability to learn, and you get fairly effective anti-spam tool. If you like you can have the program check email at specified times and you can even recover good emails that were accidentally deleted. Nice.

I found G-Lock SpamCombat to be easy-to-use and very intuitive,making it perfect for users with all levels of experience. You can customize the interface to suit yourself and even get statistics on how the program is doing. If you're searching to find a way to eliminate or reduce SPAM, take a good look at G-Lock SpamCombat. It may be what you're looking for.
