Mac OS X has been rewritten from the ground up, and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard New Features highlights all of the most important and user-relevant aspects of this release. Experienced instructor and lifelong Mac user Garrick Chow introduces current Mac users to the improvements in the latest OS. While not a complete overhaul of the operating system, this update does address a fair number of internal systems and external user features. Garrick explores all of these updates, including enhancements to the Finder and the Dock and a completely revamped QuickTime player. He shows the wealth of improvements to built-in applications like Safari, Preview, iChat, and Mail, and explains the updated 64-bit support within Snow Leopard.
Here's another quick improvement to Mail in Snow Leopard. If you are like me, the Sidebar in your copy of Mail is loaded up with several mailboxes for various email accounts, smart Mailboxes, notes, as well as folders that I have created for organizing my messages. It might be to the point where you actually have to scroll through your sidebar to see all of its contents. Up until now, you were pretty much at the mercy of however Mail organized your sidebar, so even if you use say Smart mailboxes all the time, they might be at the very bottom of your Sidebar forcing you to scroll down all the time.
Happily, here in Mail for Snow Leopard, you can now drag your Sidebar items up and down and organize them anyway you like, so I can move that all the way to the top of the list, if I wanted to. You can notice that line that's appearing, when I drag my Mailbox around. Wherever that line is when I release my mouse, that's where my Smart mailboxes end up. Again it's a small improvement, but a welcome one nonetheless.
