File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

CS Odessa Sponsoring TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

We're pleased to welcome as our latest long-term sponsor the Ukrainian company CS Odessa, makers of a suite of programs based on their flagship business and technical drawing application ConceptDraw. You likely wouldn't use ConceptDraw for a figure drawing class, but if you need to draw an org chart, diagram your network, plan out a Web site, lay out an office floor plan, or map your business processes, ConceptDraw's vector drawing tools, layers, smart connectors, and presentation mode make it ideal for business graphics. CS Odessa has taken some of the more popular uses of the general ConceptDraw program and created versions tweaked for specific uses, such as Concept Draw MINDMAP for brainstorming, ConceptDraw Project for project management, ConceptDraw WebWave for mocking up Web sites, and ConceptDraw NetDiagrammer for visualizing networks. For people coming over from Windows, ConceptDraw works well as an alternative to Microsoft Visio, and ConceptDraw can import Visio documents in XML format (the company also provides a free service for anyone who wants to convert Visio's VSD documents into Visio XML (VDX) files).

We go way back with CS Odessa - they first sponsored TidBITS in 2001, and for a time they were even helping revitalize our Russian translation, so it's good to see that they've prospered over the last seven years. Thanks to CS Odessa for their support of TidBITS and the Mac community!
