Forward multiple emails as one message in Mail Apps
Here's a short but (hopefully) useful hint ... when you select multiple messages in Apple's (MacOS X 10.2) and click the Forward button, Mail will combine the messages into one new message. Entourage, on the contrary, will open two or more new messages (I tried this on OS 9 since I don't use it on OS X). This means you have to copy/paste to get the same result.

I found that out by accident and am so happy I did because it really saves alot of time. I never thought to mention it here though because I thought that maybe i was jsut stupid and it was a well known method. Anyway nice hint.

drag and drop

This is very useful for those who've switched and miss Entourage's ability to attach emails to other emails (just drag and drop them onto your new message).

Mail still needs a few fixes to be match some Entourage features (though it exceeds Entourage in many areas such as allowing to skip over large attachments when desired; or to use an alternate SMTP server for outgoing mail), for example:

Drag and drop a message to the desktop or Finder window should create an rtf(d) file by default. Doesn't do anything now.

Allow editing of subjects of received messages for mnemonic purposes.

Allow to remove attachments.

Allow live renaming of folders.

Anyone figured out Mail equivalents for these?

FWIW, for years, Mulberry ( has offered this kind of a feature, but better yet, it ASKS you what to do. Highlight multiple messages and click reply or forward, and a dialog pops up asking if you want to reply in a single message to all recipients, or with multiple messages to separate recipients. So simple, every email client should have it.
