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.

More Bookmarks than Books, Part I

Let's face it: the bookmark or hotlist features of most Web browsers stink. They're utterly lousy. Most aren't even hierarchical, which makes it practically impossible to categorize your bookmarks, and the few (like Netscape Navigator's) that are hierarchical don't have the elegance of a well-written Macintosh application. When Web browsers first appeared, I yelled about how we needed a good independent bookmark program, partly because the existing ones were lousy, and partly because those of us who have to use and test multiple Web browsers find it difficult to switch back and forth if we lose our bookmarks each timeShow full article
