Editors' Review


Tidy Mail may look ancient, but the small freeware application can oust extra spaces and '>' characters from your e-mail almost faster than you can paste the offending text in. Just copy the text, usually a muddle e-mail forward, and paste it into the application using hot keys or by pressing the 'Paste' button. Then click 'Tidy' to remove all '>' characters, extra line spacing, and superfluous tabs and spaces. There's another button to copy the text back to the Clipboard for future pasting. Tidy Mail leaves all hyperlinks, but unfortunately does not wipe out extra characters such as '#' and '!'. We'd also like to see an 'Undo' button and a browser component that lets you eliminate extra characters from your Webmail without manually transferring the text.

Pro: very small footprint, plays nicely with other software, does a pretty good job or cleaning up email that have been forwarded - especially those that have been forwarded multiple time. Very simple and easy to use. You can't beat the price.


Cons: The program never really installs on your computer, a little strange. Not as good as the old eClearner freeware program. Expect that you will have to do some manual editing. It does a better job with test emails than HTML emails.

I like being able to clean up emails before I send them on. It's surprising how few people have software to do that. A friend told me about Tidy Mail. I had it on my computer for a couple or three years, but lost it when my computer crashed. Was glad to find it again! Thanks CNET.
