Poll Preview: Your Preferred Mac Email Client -- Here's a poll in which I encourage everyone to vote. We at TidBITS are big fans of Qualcomm's powerful Eudora, and Apple bundles the free Microsoft Outlook Express with every Mac and copy of the Mac OS, but there are numerous other programs people use to read email, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Which one do you prefer? Make sure to register your vote so we can get a sense of what you're all using! [ACE]
Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher
If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.
