“A dozen years ago, I released Mailia, open-source software designed to be used to answer personal emails. The software, of course, was not meant to be perfect but rather provocative, and deep in my heart, I was expecting someone to notice it and to continue developing it. To my knowledge, it has not been developed further.

Mailia analyzes emails coming to ones mailbox and simply replies to them. Forget automated standard ‘Out of Office’ replies, Mailia is as intelligent as software like Eliza and as flexible as open source products. The email answering machine works in the following way: it grabs an incoming message, analyzes it, sends requests to the Google search engine, then picks up given results, sorts them, and outputs the information into an email form which is sent back to the sender. If answers are publicly saved, search engines will index the answers again and utilize these as output for other similar replies. Ironic as this statement may seem – ‘Why not let the machines live their own lives’.

Mailia is free software released under the GNU General Public License.”
