Many users are aware of Apple Mail's message threading feature, which highlights related email messages within the Inbox. However, many people don't know how to view both sent and received messages within a thread at once. To do so, first enable Message Threading under Mail's Viewing Preferences. Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.

32-bit Enabler Feedback Requested

Send Article to a Friend

Mitch Bayersdorfer <>, the project manager in charge of the 32-bit Enabler at Apple, is looking for feedback from users of the 32-bit Enabler who went back to MODE32. Please send Mitch email about specific problems you've had with the 32-bit Enabler (concentrating on programs that work with MODE32 but crash with the 32-bit Enabler), as well as comments about why you like one better than the other. The level of response will directly determine Apple's inclination to update the 32-bit Enabler, so please do write to Mitch. Thanks to Jack Howarth <> for forwarding this message.

Just to set the proper mood, I'll start. I like using the 32-bit Enabler more than MODE32 because it's less obtrusive and doesn't turn off if you move it with an extensions manager. However, when I use the 32-bit Enabler on my SE/30, the rs command in MacsBug doesn't restart the machine, and if I open the Define Colors dialog in PageMaker 4.2, the Mac crashes instantly. Neither of these problems occurs with MODE32.
