File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

Microsoft Office 2011 14.3.9

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.3.9 with several improvements to Outlook. The release now defaults newly configured Yahoo Mail and Outlook.com accounts to IMAP rather than to POP, adds an option for you to decide whether to send a read receipt after it has been requested, improves conversation threading, and fixes a bug that prevented Outlook from connecting to Exchange when certain proxy servers were used. Additionally, the update fixes a crash when opening the Polish localization of Word 2011 on OS X 10.9 Mavericks. (Free update via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB, release notes)

Since applying this update, I seem to have lost the option to not convert quotes to smart quotes. How can I get that back?

I think the best approach would be to contact Microsoft support - this doesn't sound like a simple configuration issue.

This turned out to be a Mavericks upgrade issue, not just Outlook. The solution is to right click in a text input area and in the menu select substitutions and un-tick Smart Quotes. Or in the System Preferences, Select the Keyboard section and under the Text tab un-tick use smart quotes and dashes.

Sorry for the confusion.
