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.

Motorola Announces Mac Clones

Send Article to a Friend

Motorola Announces Mac Clones -- Last week, Motorola officially announced its first line of Macintosh clones, dubbed StarMax. The StarMax line consists of eight machines (four each in the 3000-series and 4000-series) available in desktop and minitower enclosures, featuring 603e and 604e PowerPC processors at speeds ranging from 160 to 200 MHz, IDE drives, and an industry-leading, five-year warranty. Although reports indicate that Motorola's machines don't offer shocking performance improvements over Apple's current Macintosh line (and their processors reportedly are not mounted on removable daughter-cards), they're expected to be solid performers when they become available in November, with prices beating Apple's comparable machines.
