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.

Happy New Year everyone! Our first New Year's resolution is to clean out the nooks and crannies in our article database, summarizing topics we planned to cover but never found the room. This isn't to imply that this information isn't interesting, merely that we couldn't fit it in among all the rest of the good stuff we've included. Our apologies if these articles do not meet our usual standards for completeness - at this point we decided it was more important to publish them than to flesh them out.

Our second New Year's resolution is to be more ruthless in selecting articles. The pressures facing us are twofold. We have more information than ever before (and we must always be careful of our wrists), but we do not want to increase either the size or the frequency of our issues. Since we have a formula that works well, we're going to stick by our electronic guns. As always, we welcome comments.
