File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships -- Microsoft has officially released Office 2004 for Mac OS X, a significant revision to the near-ubiquitous suite of productivity tools. We plan to look more closely at the changes in Word, Entourage, Excel, and PowerPoint once we've received the software and evaluated whether the new features and fixed bugs in the final versions of each program are worthwhile. For now, suffice to say that you can purchase it for $400 (list price) or $150 (educational); upgrades cost $240. Individual products are also available if you don't want the full suite. You can also download a test drive version (186 MB) that works for 30 days, but keep in mind that Office 2004 requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher. [TJE]
