View Full Threads in Apple Mail

Many users are aware of Apple Mail's message threading feature, which highlights related email messages within the Inbox. However, many people don't know how to view both sent and received messages within a thread at once. To do so, first enable Message Threading under Mail's Viewing Preferences. Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.

Fantastical 1.2.2

Send Article to a Friend

Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.2.2 with a variety of fixes and improvements. While largely a maintenance update, this release of the calendar utility does include a few handy additions, including vertical resizing of the event list (Mac OS X 10.7 Lion only), searching in event notes, and displaying “Tomorrow” instead of tomorrow’s date in the event list. Among the several fixes, this update addresses an issue where some newly added accounts wouldn’t sync in Fantastical and a failure to update some events for Google accounts. It also adds some localization improvements (including Australian time zones) and modifies its subscription sync behavior to mimic iCal’s refresh intervals. Note that the update may prompt you for access to your keychain, which is necessary in preparing for the Gatekeeper security function in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. ($19.99 new from Flexibits or the Mac App Store, free update, 8.8 MB, release notes)
