Creo Six Degrees 2.0 Supports More Email Programs -- Creo has released a major update to Six Degrees, their utility for connecting related email messages, files, and people for coherent project management. The most important change is that Six Degrees 2.0 now works with email programs beyond Microsoft Entourage, including Apple Mail and Eudora. It achieves this functionality by communicating directly with your POP or IMAP server to retrieve a copy of every message. Once Six Degrees 2.0 has imported mail into its own database or retrieved and indexed messages, it provides a Web browser-based interface for tracking a project's related email messages, attached files, and more. Other features include full-text searching of messages, to-do lists, and integration with Creo Tokens (see "Creo Eases File Sharing with Tokens" in TidBITS-707). A somewhat-limited Six Degrees 2.0 Lite Edition is a free 13.4 MB download; the $100 Personal Edition (a free update for Six Degrees 1.x customers) adds additional features such as support for an unlimited number of projects, importing from Microsoft Entourage (the free version imports only from Eudora and Mail), links that initiate reply/forward actions in your default email client, and the capability to delete items.

Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
