Tutorial Description

Following on from last week's Mac Montage, there were a few other bits and pieces I needed to catch up on, so this week, it's another Mac Montage!

This week's show covers:

WideMail Un-Install: Although I've had zero problems with this mail plugin, some people have experienced some issues and wanted to uninstall the plugin. This section shows you how to uninstall WideMail correctly to avoid any issues, as well as a solution if you have uninstalled and hit problems.

MobileMe Mail Beta: Apple have recently released a new version of their webmail service and unusually, are running it as a beta service. This section shows you how to sign up for the beta, reviews the new user interface, describes some of the new and improved features and shows you how to take advantage of the most significant new feature - server side rules.

TotalFinder: A new utility to add some extra functionality to the Finder in Snow Leopard. This new utility adds ""chrome"" like tabs to the standard Finder application, along with a dual pane mode. My favourite is the inclusion of Visor mode, the ability to have the Finder pop up from the bottom of the screen in a fixed pane mode - very cool!

Enhanced AppleScript for Extracting Email Attachments: Following on from last weeks segment on using DropBox to sync files between your Mac and iPad, but more importantly, how to email attachments into DropBox, this segment brings you a more complex AppleScript which actually reduces the complexity of the process. The revised AppleScript removes the need for an additional mail account and the Automator actions.

This simplified workflow allows you to send emails with attachments to your normal Apple mail account, and identify attachments to be extracted using the Subject line - much easier!

Much appreciation to Mark Dalton for publishing the script on the ScreenCastsOnine forum.
