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.

There weren't many new threads in TidBITS Talk this week, so we encourage you to check out some of the postings we made in ExtraBITS; a number of which offer followup commentary on earlier TidBITS articles. We eventually plan to integrate some sort of headline listing of ExtraBITS posts into the main issues, much as we've done here with TidBITS Talk.
