I was at Mactivity, too, and talked to the "corporate naming weenie" at Apple who came up with "Apple Internet Mail Server."
First, without naming names, I've known this guy for about five years - he isn't a weenie. Second, he apologized for the name. Just a few days before the product announcement, Apple lawyers told him that MailShare had trademark problems, and they didn't have time to make an extensive search for any creative names. What could they approve? Anything generic, that started with the word Apple. So, we got Apple Internet Mail Server. Blame the lawyers. At least it's descriptive.
Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard
The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.
