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.

FileMaker Releases Two FileMaker Applications

Send Article to a Friend

FileMaker Releases Two FileMaker Applications -- FileMaker is going in a new direction with its long-standing FileMaker Pro database software. In addition to developing the database applications themselves, the company will also sell FileMaker Applications, a series of task-specific programs developed using FileMaker Pro which - unlike most custom FileMaker solutions - are unlocked to enable customization and extension by FileMaker Pro developers. Although FileMaker Applications are designed to provide instant solutions to data management tasks often overlooked or poorly managed by organizations, by requiring FileMaker Pro 6 they're also intended to spur upgrades and sales of FileMaker Pro itself.

The first two FileMaker Applications are Recruiter and Meetings. Recruiter offers tools for managing contacts and candidate data so users can quickly figure out "who knows who" and "who worked with who," along with tools for managing background information, reporting on organizational structure, email tools, plus more common contact management and reporting capabilities. Meetings offers tools for developing agendas, tracking tasks and action items, sharing meeting minutes, and automating repetitive email. Both FileMaker Applications are available online from FileMaker's online store and require the $300 FileMaker Pro 6 to run; Meetings costs $50, and Recruiter is priced at $300. [GD]
