Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages

When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the editors@tidbits.com address in the criterion.

CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO 3.2

Send Article to a Friend

Code 42 Software has released version 3.2 of its CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO backup software and online backup service. Most noticeably, an icon has been added to the menu bar that enables you to see the status of inbound and outbound backups (including pause and start capabilities), specify a time period to pause all backups, and open the CrashPlan application. Other new features include an option to pause backups automatically should your laptop run low on battery power; another option to pause backups automatically based on network interface and wireless network connection; and the capability to restore files from another user with either the original file permissions or with your current file permissions. Existing users will automatically receive the update to their client software, and a handful of known issues are being actively addressed. (Free with 30-day online backup trial, 17.8 MB, release notes)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:
