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.

If you run a BBS using any commercial software other than FirstClass, SoftArc has an upgrade program that allows you to trade in your master disks and get the FirstClass software at a $100 discount or get a larger system (more licensed users) for the price of a smaller system. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but neither did the original message, so contact SoftArc for more information.
