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.

PowerBook Modem Updates

Send Article to a Friend
Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Apple has announced the release of two software updates to address problems PowerBook owners have experienced with their modems. The new Express Modem 1.5.4 software is for users of the Apple Express Modem with System 7.5; the other is for PowerBook 150 owners.

Version 1.5.4 of the Express Modem software eliminates the problem that caused a PowerBook running System 7.5 to crash on restart if there were faxes waiting to go out.

The new PowerBook 150 Update 1.0 software corrects a problem with the original modem-handling abilities of the PowerBook 150 that caused any internal modem to continue to use battery power even when it was not in use. Global Village released a new version of their PowerPort software several weeks ago that prevented the problem from occurring, but it only supports the company's own PowerPort modems.

Both updates are available on AppleLink, or on the Internet via FTP in:
