Force Mail in 10.6 to only copy e-mail addresses

Select all of the thumbnails in the sidebar (with Command-A, or click the first and then click the last while holding Shift). Next, from the Tools menu, choose Adjust Size. You'll be presented with a dialog containing options to resize to all the common 4:3 and 16:9 screen sizes, as well as the option to define custom dimensions. Images are scaled [...]
