Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

 
 

EIMS Light 3.1.1 Simplifies Mac Email Server

Send Article to a Friend

EIMS Light 3.1.1 Simplifies Mac Email Server -- As Glenn Anderson's Mac OS-based Eudora Internet Mail Server has evolved, its feature set has grown beyond what many sites need. In response, Glenn has now released EIMS Light 3.1.1, which is identical to the full EIMS 3.1.1 but supports only a single domain (with domain aliases), lacks an IMAP server, doesn't provide LDAP and Ph directory services, doesn't support Apple Events (and thus AppleScript), and lacks the Incoming Mail folder that some utilities use to extend the email processing capabilities of the full version. In exchange for this reduced feature set, EIMS Light costs only $200, or half as much as the full version of EIMS. It requires a 68030-based Macintosh or better, running System 7.1 or later with Open Transport 1.1.1. A 60-day fully functional demo of the full version of EIMS is available. [ACE]
