Transferring emails to another mail client!

This is actually a simple way of transferring a few emails from one computer to another or from Mail to another application.  It will also let you preview the file in Quick Look (it doesn't work well in a text editor).  A lot of cool things can be done by simply dragging things around in OS X and the same is true with Mail.  You can easily drag an email from Mail to the desktop or any Finder window.  It will then be readable with Quick Look or just by reimporting it in any mail application.

OK I have a question and no idea where to find the answer. And since this is the only mac forum I regularly read.

Why do I get random rooster calls?

I'm going to guess you've got the Flappie widget installed, as I had a similar thing, but with a wolf howling, and it was a long time before I found the answer. You can find the answer here: but essentially it's just Flappie thing. If you don't have it installed, then I have no idea!

I have a new mac and managed to import all of my emails from outlook to entourage (by moving from outlook to outlook express, and then to entourage). I have been less-than-impressed with entourage after years of using outlook.

After watching the online Leopard tutorial, I decided to switch to Mail. I had no problem importing emails from entourage and setting up my gmail and mindspring email accounts. I have two email accounts that are through privately hosted websites, and I cannot get those accounts to set up properly in Mail.

They both require custom ports, which I added, but still no luck. I was hooked once I realized Mail could forward HTML, and I love those templates, but I can't use it if I can't set up these two accounts. Any advice?
