OS X Lion will be available on the Mac App Store tomorrow. This image illustrates a feature worth at least $29. Make sure you edit Mail’s toolbar and drag that button in.
It does the right thing - if there’s a folder called Archive, it puts the email there; if not, it creates the folder first.
Enjoy it!

This just in from the Department of Who Knew?  You can resize multiple point sizes of text in Mac OS X by using mathematical equivalents in that little box just under “Size”. In other words, if you select multiple items of different sizes and want to triple the size of all, just type *3 (times 3) and hit return. Other functions ( / divide, + add, – subtract) work as well.
Your’re welcome.

Finder allows you to specify a default search location when using the built-in search tool at the top right of any Finder window. Your choices are “Search This Mac” (the default, which seems to annoy most users), “Search the Current Folder” (which is what I’ve always wanted), and the verbose “Use the Previous Search Scope.” This option is under Finder > Preferences > Advanced, and I believe it arrived in 10.6 Snow Leopard.

My backup plan: Dan Frakes | Storage & Backup | Macworld

"The end result of this diversified backup plan is that at any given time, I’ve got a complete clone of each of my drives that’s never more than 24 hours old, Time Machine backups of modified files for each hour of that day, and both onsite and cloud versions of all the documents I’m actively working on. And those in-progress articles are accessible from any of my Macs, as well as from my iOS devices."
