View Full Threads in Apple Mail

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.

I'm not pleased about Microsoft buying Fox at all. I program FoxPro 2.0, and it's the only one out there that civilizes (i.e. GUI-izes) DOS databases in a quick, attractive manner. I hate to see a killer program hacked to pieces by Microsoft, although the Windows and Mac versions might come out sooner because of it. This surprised me even more because all of the regional Microsoft salesthings got training on the Microsoft database over the Christmas holidays, and said it would be out in the summer."
