File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

ScreenFlow 2.1.2

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream has released an update to its powerful screencasting application ScreenFlow. The new version increases the time limit for YouTube videos to 15 minutes (instead of 10) and corrects several other issues with exporting video. These and other bug fixes come just a few months after the 2.1 release of ScreenFlow, which added the capability to create all-in-one Flash video - including the video itself, the Flash player, and the necessary HTML - along with 64-bit audio capture support and automatic document saving. You can try the software for free, but exported movies will be watermarked. ($99 new, free update, 8.2 MB)
