Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

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]
