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.)

I'm so glad I'm not important enough to have highly sensitive and valuable files. I take reasonable precautions including having different randomly-typed passwords for just about everything so no one's going to get access to more than one account if they get a password. But I don't have to go to the extreme of having encrypted DMGs on my encrypted hard drive.
