Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages

When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the editors@tidbits.com address in the criterion.

No More Be Hardware

Send Article to a Friend

No More Be Hardware -- Industry darling Be, Inc. announced last week it will stop making its own hardware line - the BeBox - and focus purely on developing the BeOS for PowerPC-based Macintosh computers. Be points out (rightly) that it's difficult for a 50-person company to design hardware and an operating system, and the lion's share of their target user and developer markets are already using Power Mac hardware. Be promises to support current BeBoxes for at least the next three years. [GD]
