Make Uses of The Hidden Favorites Folder

Reader Question: How Do I Make A Distribution List in Mail?

I received a question from a reader today asking me how to set up a distribution list like he had on his Windows machine with Outlook. My response to his was this:

He has mad both a Leopard and a Tiger Version. Check out his site for the download.

It is possible to have QuickTime display frame information instead of minutes and seconds. To do that, click on the time at the left of the timebar and choose "Frame number". You can easily switch back to Standard at anytime.
