I know macs are awesome for the drag and drop, but on firefox on a web based email it is still better to hit "browse" and then find your file that way when attaching to emails.

Tip

Unlike Windows, there is no print screen button on the Apple keyboard. Depending on what you want to capture, you can choose one of the following methods to simulate a print screen.
Capture the entire screen
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [3] and release.
Click any part of the screen with your mouse.
The screen capture is stored on your desktop in .PNG format.

Capture an application
Open the application you want to capture on screen.
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [4] and release.
The cursor will change to a +.
Press the [Spacebar]
The cursor will change to a camera.
Use the mouse (camera) to select the application.
Check your desktop for the picture.

Capture a portion of the screen
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [4] and release.
The cursor will change to a +.
Drag your mouse (+) to select the area you want to capture .
Check your desktop for the picture.

TIP: To copy the image on your clipboard instead of automatically saving it on the desktop, hold the [Ctrl] key along with [Command] + [Shift] + [4].

Show Hidden Files in Mac OS X
Open the Terminal application. You can find it under Applications -> Utilities. Type defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles Yes. Launch the Finder to see the hidden files. They are pre-fixed with a dot(.). Please be careful while changing anything in these files. The OS X uses them to manage the Mac.

Useful shortcuts

Use [Command] + [Option] + [Del] (Delete) to empty trash.
Use [Command] + [Q] to quit an application.
Use [Command] + [Option] + [Ctrl] + [8] to invert the colors on your Mac.

Automator Basics
The Apple Automator application allows Mac OS users to automate the repetitive computer tasks by creating a workflow. A workflow is a series of actions that will be executed one after the other when executed. An action is the simplest unit of the Automator like Copy to Clipboard By combining actions from different applications in the drag and drop interface of the Automator, you can create your own applications and plug ins. Here is how it works.
  1. Open Automator.app from the Applications folder.
  2. You will see 4 panes: Library, Action and Help on the left; the workflow canvas on the right.
  3. You can search for actions by typing in the edit box located on the top left corner of the application.
Create a plug in for sending mail from the Finder

  1. Press [Command] + [N] to create a new workflow.
  2. Select Finder in the Library list.
  3. Select Get Selected Finder items.
  4. Drag it to the workflow canvas on the right.
  5. Now select Mail application in the Library List.
  6. Select Get New Mail.
  7. Drag it to the right window, below the Get Selected Finder Items box.
  8. Select the Add Attachment to Front Message from the Action pane and drop it as the last action on the workflow.
  9. You have just completed your workflow.
  10. Click the Run button on the top left corner of the screen.
  11. The Mail app will pop up. Close it and go back to the Automator application
  12. Open File > Save as a Plug-in. Type a name for the Automator plug-in.
  13. Open the Finder window and click on a file that you would like to send as an email attachment.
  14. From the context menu([Ctrl] + click), select Automator and then choose the workflow you just created.
  15. If you have your mail account set-up, you just need to type in the details of who you want to send the message to. You can now send attachments directly from your Finder window.

If your mail account is configured on both systems as an IMAP account since the mail is on the server, both devices would see the same mail.
That doesn't apply to your Outlook Contacts or presumably apple Contacts

How to transfer email and sub-folders from mac to windows


A quick and easy way to do this is with a GMail IMAP account. Just setup the GMail account on the Mac and in Outlook on Windows. Then in Mail (Mac) drag the messages from your account to the GMail IMAP folders (make as many as you need). Now in Outlook drag the messages from the GMail IMAP account into the Outlook folders you want.

Another way is to go fro third party applications.
The one I know is : Apple Mail to PST Convert - Convert Apple Mail Emails to WIndows Outlook PST

Choose the way you want to opt.
Thank you

Transfer olm files to apple mail (mbox)


First:

Follow the steps and you will be able to import your mails easily
1. open outlook 2011
2. create a local folder
3. drag all your local emails to the folder we have created
4. then drag the local folder we have created to the lion's desktop (once it will finish, we'll have a .mbox file)
5. open mail
6. In Mail, choose File > Import Mailboxes -> choose .mbox file

Second:

You can use Exchange or IMAP accounts to have all the files on the
server, and then in Mail, but you would need significant storage space
there if you have a lot of e-mails.

Third:

You can use software approach to solve your problem.There are various softwares available online for this problem. One I know is Olm converter pro.
You can find it here: olmconverterpro.com

I have a clip art image of desktop and want to transfer to an e-mail i'm sending. thanks


With Mac OS X Mail, this is really quite simple - all you have to do is either:
  • Click and drag the image from the desktop into the message writing window.
  • Or, click 'attach' and find the image you want. Click 'Choose File', and it will appear in your message - drag it around to wherever you want it.
Hope that helped!

I keep getting junk mail from same address. How do I block if I own a MAC? I don't seem to be able to permanently block an email address.


This depends on what mail client you are using. In Mac OS X Mail, you need to define a rule:
  1. Open up mail and go Mail -> Preferences
  2. Click on the 'Rules' tab
  3. Click 'Add Rule'
  4. Using the editor, make it so that if the email is From the spam address (Which you put in the box), that email message is deleted.
  5. Press OK. Mail may ask you if you want to apply that rule to email messages already in your mailboxes - press yes if you want them automatically deleted.
There are similar steps if you are using a different mail client - if you are, let me know and I'll try to guide you through the steps.
Hope that helps, good luck!

My email just keeps loading ,it wont let me open any pages


Hello
It could be there is one message still on the server that is hanging the download. Two questions:
1) What email program are you using? 2) Do you know how to check your e-mail using your Internet Service Provider's webmail access?
If you don't have an answer to 2), usually you take the part of your e-mail address after the @ and go to a web page with an address something like: webmail.cox.net (that would be the address if your email is @cox.net, for example). Once there, you will be asked to enter your user name (the part before the @) or your full e-mail address, and your e-mail password.
That way, you can quit your e-mail program so the messages stop loading, and then instead look at all your messages online.
If you see one that looks like spam, or that has a huge file attachment, or that just looks odd, consider deleting it (you can always drag it out of the trash later).
If there is a bad message, it will usually be the next message online after the last message your email program was able to download.
So, give that a shot, and see if it clears up the e-mail loading issue. If not, or if this doesn't make sense, send a comment and I'll answer any questions you have then.
All best, cordwainer

Here is the easiest solution if you're using the "mail" application on your mac.
Put the files you want to send on your desktop, then open the message that you are trying to send while still being able to see your desktop with the files you want to attach.. now drag those files onto the open message. that should work.
If you're not using mail.. message me back. also If this doesn't work, tell me what are the file extensions your using as well as file sizes and the email client you're using.
hope that helps
