Quick Way To Send Your e-mail

If you are a user who is trying to use the keyboard as much as you can and keep my hands off the mouse then you may want to learn the keyboard short cut to send a Maill.app message. After yo have typed you message and it is rea to go simply press the Command+shift+D keys and off the message will go.

If you have any other Mail.app short cuts that may help new users please share them in the comments below!

Use Quick Look in Mail.app from the keyboard

For longer than I care to admit I have been using my mouse, or track pad, to Quicklook Mail.app attachments. Well that stops today. If you have an e-mail with an attachment and want to Quicklook the item don't reach for the mouse, instead type the Command + Y key. This will Quicklook the attachment just like hitting the space bar does in finder. I hope apple looks at this and changes the Mail.app Quicklook  in Snow leopard but for now this will help keep my fingers on the keyboard and off the mouse.

Open Links From Mail in The Background

If you get e-mails that has several links embeded in them you can open the links in the background of the default web browser (Firefox for me). The process is the same as opening a new tab in Safari. Just command + click on the link and it will open a new tab in the web browser and not bring the web browser to the front. Give this a shot next time you are trying to get through your e-mails and don't want to be distracted by the you tube video your sister sent you a link to.
