Today is Labor Day, a U.S. national holiday, but we self-employed types ended up spending the day, well, working. Along with putting together this issue of TidBITS, we completely moved all of our Internet servers from our venerable SE/30 to a shiny new Apple Internet Server 6150, which means that performance should be a good bit better. Lest you feel sorry for us for working hard on a holiday, just remember that I'm talking about a Macintosh. It might have taken me all of an hour to move email, email auto-replies, FTP, Gopher, and Web access over to the new machine and to install updates to all the software, including Apple Internet Mail Server 1.0, Peter Lewis's FTPd 3.0.0, and StarNine's WebSTAR 1.2.1. Most of that time was being careful about synchronizing the old and the new Macs. Running Internet servers on a Mac seems almost too easy sometimes. [ACE]
Quick Download of Multiple Attachments in Apple Mail
To download a bunch of attachments quickly, look in the header of the email message that they came in. Make sure the triangle adjacent to the paperclip icon is pointing to the right (click the triangle if needed), and then drag the paperclip icon to your Desktop or to another folder. Release the mouse button and all attachments copy to that location.
