Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

DealBITS Drawing: DoorStop X Security Suite

Send Article to a Friend

Despite the CanSecWest exploit (see "Money Meets Mouth on Mac Exploits," 2007-04-23), Macs have proven remarkably secure in comparison with the myriad problems that afflict Windows. But anyone who wants to increase their level of security and knowledge about attacks and vulnerabilities can turn to tools like the DoorStop X Security Suite, from Open Door Networks. It brings together the recently updated DoorStop X Firewall 2.0, Who's There? Firewall Advisor 2.1, and an updated version of the accompanying ebook, "Internet Security for Your Macintosh: A Guide for the Rest of Us." (For what's new, see "Open Door Networks Updates Security Products," 2007-02-05.)

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of two copies of DoorStop X Security Suite, each worth $79. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on DoorStop X Security Suite, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters and challenge-response systems, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won.
