Guide Review - X-Ray Mail Assistant 0.01 - Email Utility
With X-Ray's filters, you can add custom headers (X-URL, for example) to outgoing messages easily, or remove headers inserted by your email program (X-Mailer comes to mind). The incoming filters could look for spam and add a "X-Ray: Spam" header line for later filtering.
Unfortunately, you have to figure all these possibilities out yourself. X-ray isn't extremely easy to use, and there's hardly any help. But hacking X-ray can be great fun.
