iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

Take Control News/14-Feb-05

Send Article to a Friend

We continue to work on updates, with this week bringing a pair of small updates to Joe Kissell's ebooks about Apple Mail.

<http://www.tidbits.com/takecontrol/news/>

Ebooks about Apple Mail Updated -- Thanks to author Joe Kissell's tireless efforts in keeping readers of his ebooks up-to-date, we've released minor updates to both "Take Control of Email with Apple Mail" and "Take Control of Spam with Apple Mail." Changes in "Take Control of Email with Apple Mail" include a new sidebar that details how to access Hotmail, MSN, and Gmail accounts from Mail; a new tip about what to do if Mail fails to show a new window after you click Reply; and new info about a bug with rules and color-coded messages. "Take Control of Spam with Apple Mail" has a few typographical corrections and a few wording changes to indicate directions that work with later versions of Panther than previously noted. Everyone who owns these ebooks is welcome to download these free updates, but they may not be worth the trouble of downloading because the changes are so small and so specific. In particular, we recommend that you don't bother to download the update to "Take Control of Spam with Apple Mail" unless you've haven't yet acted on plans to print it. As always, to download an update, open your existing copy of the ebook, click the Check for Updates button in the lower-left corner of the first page, and click the Download link on the Web page that loads in your browser.

Back in October 2004, we rolled both ebooks into a print title, "Take Control of Apple Mail." The print book already includes the typographical corrections in these ebooks, but it does not have the new information. If you own the print book, consult the "Free Updates" section on page xii of your copy to access these ebook updates. [ACE]
