Welcome to Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Tips and Tricks. I'm Chris Breen. In my Mac OS X Mountain Lion essential training course, I show you the basics and a bit more about the workings and features of Apple's Operating System. But there's so much more and a lot of it not entirely obvious. And because there is more, more is what I have in mind with this course. We dive deep into mail, going beyond simply composing and sending messages, to tackle filtering your email with mails rules. Techniques for dealing with junk mail. Importing and exporting message archives, and recommendations for some mail add-ons that you'll find helpful.

Keeping your Contacts in order is vital, and I help you do that by showing you how to synchronize your contacts. With Google and Yahoo as well as reveal hidden tricks of Contacts Headings. When discussing hidden system preference features, I show you how to disable the Caps Lock key.
