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.

TextExpander 3.3 -- If you’ve dreamed of automating an automation utility, TextExpander 3.3 is here for you. The new version of Smile Software’s utility for turning short text snippets into longer blocks of text (or for fixing common typing errors) adds AppleScript support, along with a couple of sample scripts. The update also includes toolbar customization options for the Backup Now, Restore, and Logging commands; adds support for guillemets (« ») as delimiter characters; allows keypress macros (Tab, Return, Esc, Enter) to be nested in fill-in snippets; and automatically capitalizes contractions of “I” (such as “I’m” or “I’d”) at the beginning of sentences. ($34.95 new, free update, 5.6 MB)

iTunes 10.2.2 -- The changes may be minor in Apple’s release of iTunes 10.2.2, but they’re still welcome. The update addresses an issue when iTunes can become unresponsive when syncing an iPad, and a separate issue that could cause syncing photos with iOS devices to take longer than necessary. Also corrected is an issue with skipping video previews in the iTunes Store. (Free, 75.59 MB)
