Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Remote Desktop 3.5 Admin, an update to its remote desktop management software that introduces several reliability, usability, and compatibility improvements — at least some likely connected to the company’s recent release of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Server. An updated version of the app’s companion Dashboard widget has also been released. ($79.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update through Software Update or the Mac App Store, 25.27 MB)

This update logged me out of screen sharing with 10.6 server and I'm unable to log in again.

It may be that you need to install a client update on the server as well, though I didn't see anything about that in the release notes. I don't have trouble controlling a Mac running 10.5 Leopard or 10.7 Lion from 10.6 Snow Leopard, but I don't have a 10.6 Snow Leopard Server machine to test on.

If you need to run Software Update on the Snow Leopard Server machine, you can ssh in and run it from the command line. Fussy, I know, but a necessary fallback sometimes when ARD doesn't work.
