Zoe0.6.3

21 February 2005

Virtual email message librarian.

Overview

Note: Zoe is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Zoe a sort of librarian, tirelessly, continuously, processing, slicing, indexing, organizing, your messages. The end result is this intertwingled Web of information. Messages put in context. Your very own knowledge base accessible at your fingertip. No more "attending to" your messages. The messages organization is done automatically for you so as to not have the need to "manage" your email. Because once information is available at a keystroke, it doesn't matter in which folder you happened to file it two years ago. There is no folder. The information is always there. Accessible when you need it. In context.

This seems nice, but it is obvious that it would be a thousand times better if it supported IMAP... Documentation has improved but is still pretty bad.

Am I wrong, or does this app retrieve email only from the Inbox of the Apple Mail app? I have rules set up to organize incoming mail into folders, and Zoe doesn't seem to retrieve those emails. This makes Zoe pretty much useless for those who already organize their emails in Mail. Is there a way around this, to enable Zoe to retrieve emails in folders? JP

This is absolutely amazing. Usually I shy away from anything in Java but this runs in a browser, where Java belongs. This is free, people, so give it a try. The documentation is good reading but pretty useless in getting things set up (although to be fair the thing is very intuitive). There is a prefpane included and also a service menu item, as well as a mailbundle (although I'm not sure what the bundle does exactly). You have to install them all separately, although there are instructions in the read me. Try this Wiki for some better documentation http://zoe.omara.ca I'm sure the reason there is not a lot more fuss about this app is because of the paucity of information on the site.

Excellent! Now all my emails since 2000 are at the same place, easily searchable and I can reach them from everywhere as they are on my server. Thanks for this nice app. Continue the good work.

I tried it for a day now. It is great. A bit confusing how to set up the smtp account but that is possible. so if there would be a better introduction into zoe. i would rate it as a five star. So it gets only 4. boris

Zoe is cool. Zoe is wonderful. Zoe works. Zoe helps me search my email archive accumulated over the last six years. Zoe is still a bit rough, but does what it's supposed to do. Only thing not working is intergation with mail.app in 10.3.3.

Interesting that Google is trying to implement what Zoe does as a new email service, called Gmail, with lots of controversy about the privacy issues of having ones email on a commercial server, with the understanding that the service will be analyzing our email for commercial purposes. That discussion reminded me of Zoe and brought me back for another look. If one is tempted by Gmail, perhaps Zoe is a better way to have local control and privacy, and virtually unlimited space. And, it sounds easy to use Zoe to serve one's email online so you can get at it from wherever, assuming a static IP address. Perhaps the real innovation we need is static IP address service with our ISP accounts, at a reasonable price. Why should IP addresses be scarce? Same reason we had Y2K, not enough digits allocated?

After importing my old mbox all German Umlaute are shown in a horrible way. Even worse - nor all my E-Mails were importetd. May be this is relatet to the fact that I use a redirect service and not all of my e-mails have the same addresses? In spite of this Zoe looks wonderful!

The idea is great. The result is poor. The explanations are not easy to understand. I try Zoe. It is the last time. I am not able to use a great idea with this poor tool. Sorry

Zoe is mostly pointless- while you get an interesting way to look at your email(for example- by domain), and some ok full-text searching, you don't get much over a good email client with folders and good searching. Considering most people filter their email into different folders to keep it all apart anyway, what's the point? While I concede I might be wrong about Zoe's uselessness, the developers do a rather poor job of explaining a)specifically what Zoe does("makes your email easy to deal with" is NOT specific) and b)why I should install it- but the website does little more than give PR-speak talking about wonderful Zoe is and how much it will revolutionize how I use my email. Not HOW it will do so. Second, and this is just a personal pet peeve- I hate java. It's a horribly bloated, buggy, and slow language- case and point, it took forever for Zoe to 'index' about 100MB of mail, on a 1ghz powerbook. I also hate applications that use web UI's. Web UIs are for embedded devices, remote control, multiuser, etc... The web UI is needlessly clunky, and dangerous-hostile email is an excellent example(say, spam with tracker images).

Dunno if it's Zoe or Apple's implementation of Java, but when I run Zoe my network connection get tied up -- my cable modem's activity light, which normally blinks on and off more or less depending on traffic, stays on solid constantly. Even when I close the web browser window with Zoe in it, Process Viewer shows a java process running that consumes 40-90% of CPU. And network activity remains abnormally high. Both of these problems persist until I kill the java process in Process Viewer.

It does support IMAP. As well as RSS and FTP. Really a fab program if you're willing to explore it and figure out some parts on your own.
