10.3: Quickly 'find similar' messages in Mail Apps
I'm not sure if this was in Jaguar, but I thought it was a neat undocumented feature of Mail.app. If you have a message highlighted, and then select "From:" on the pop-up Search menu, Mail will populate the search field with the name of the person who sent the message. It does this same thing for both the subject and other fields. This makes for a nice "find similar" shortcut in Mail.

The Rules preference pane does the same sort of thing, and I'm quite sure that it didn't in Jaguar. Select the header you want to check for, and Rules fills in the "contains" field from the current message.

While not earth-shattering, this is a useful hint. In fact, I found my way here looking to see if it had been documented in a hint as I just 'discovered' it.
