I had blogged about macZot earlier in the year. As a way of promoting the site, macZot has teamed up with AppZapper to offer a very attractive offer. Simply blog about macZot and you can help bring the price of AppZapper down to $0.

From the AppZapper site:

AppZapper is for people who want to confidently try new apps while knowing they can uninstall them easily. Drag one or more unwanted apps onto AppZapper and watch as it finds all the extra files and lets you delete them with a single click. A slick safety system remembers which apps you want to keep safe, and the log tracks all the files you’ve zapped.

So if you’re looking for a great uninstallation utility for OS X and you’d like to help the other 259 bloggers bring down the price of AppZapper, keep blogging about macZot.


Return Receipts in Entourage

I’ve slowly started the move toward using a Power Mac G5 as my primary work computer. While installing and configuring Entourage earlier today I came across a tip for setting up Return Receipts in Entourage. The tip indicated that in order to enable return receipt requests for outgoing messages, you would have to customize your mail account so that every single outgoing message would automatically include an additional mail header titled ‘Disposition-Notification-To’ whose value was set to your e-mail address.

I have never been happier for not liking, or for not using return receipts with messages that I send.

Outlook Express on a Macintosh

Supporting users can sometimes be a good check on your cognition. When faced with a question on Outlook Express I could probably guide you through the various setup or option screens without actually having to click through the menus. However, what happens when the user is battling a problem with Outlook Express 4 – on a Macintosh – a Macintosh running OS 9.0 – Yikes. Since you don’t want to claim ignorance and would rather resolve this problem at the earliest where do you turn to?

What ended up helping me in this particular support scenario was the Outlook Express 4 Preferences screen shot obtained from the Google Image Search (See Below). What would support be without Google?

Anyways, turns out that Microsoft still offers Outlook Express for Macintosh users and can be freely downloaded from Mactopia.
