10.4: Create aliases to iCal and Mail items via Spotlight Apps
Tiger only hintI don't know if this is a no-brainer, but I thought I'd submit it...

Now that Mail messages and iCal events and To-Dos are individual files, it's possible to create aliases to these individual items using Spotlight. If you do a search in the Spotlight window (not the menu item -- the Command-Option-Space curfull-sized window), you can Option-drag or Command-Option-drag any result to a folder or the desktop to copy it or create an alias.

I used this method to create an alias to a specific email that I wanted to reference from the desktop. Now, when I double-click the alias, Mail starts up and opens that specific email for me automatically!

This tip worked well for images, documents, folders, iTunes music files and mail, but I could not get it to work with Contacts, iCal events or to/do's.
