Ugly Email Messages: Beware the Text Monkey
Clever New Utility Cleans Over-quoted Email Like Magic
Scottsdale, Ariz. - May 3, 2004 - We've all seen them. Your inbox may be filled
with them right now: messy, over-quoted email messages that have been
forwarded so many times they're almost unreadable. There's no easy way
to clean them, so most people just click "Forward" and send
them on. Pretty soon, they look something like this:
Joe> Bob> >> >A dog walks into a bar
Joe> Bob> >> >"Give me two carrots
and a martini!"
A new product from Boxer Software solves this problem. Text Monkey
Lite senses when quoted email text is copied to the clipboard and
cleans it automatically, or upon your confirmation.
Using Text Monkey couldn't be easier: select the text, copy it to the
clipboard, and paste back the cleaned text. Because Text Monkey
processes text while it resides on the clipboard, it's compatible with
all types of programs, and can extend the functionality of almost
every program you use.
Best of all, Text Monkey Lite is completely free. You can download the program
You can also download a fully functional evaluation copy of Text
Monkey Pro. In addition to email clean-up, Text Monkey Pro includes
dozens of other useful functions, all related to cleaning, formatting,
or filtering text. Most of its functions require the click of just a
single button. One button converts plain text to an HTML document,
applying all the tags necessary to preserve formatting and create a
web-publishable document. Other commands are available to sort,
auto-number, delete blank lines, delete duplicate lines, count
occurrences of strings, convert tabs to spaces, perform case
conversions, encode/decode special HTML characters, and more.
Text Monkey has a small footprint on-screen, and resides in the
system tray so it's always on-hand when you need it. Text Monkey Pro is
especially useful to web programmers who need fast tools to convert HTML
to plain text, or vice versa.
Text Monkey PRO costs $29.99 (USD) and is compatible with all 32- anb 64-bit
Windows versions. A fully functional trial version is available at
http://www.textmonkey.com. Multi-user licenses are also available.
