Does anyone know how to delete an email from mac mail/address book. A few people have changed their emails and ive gone into address book and deleted the old one and added the new but then when i type their name when composing a new email the old one still comes up and is usually the default first. Very annoying

Cheers

I don't know if this is the correct way but I do the following seems a long way to do it but she works for me.

Address book in the dock
pick address to delete
Edit / Delete Card

that is straight out of the address book.. I think he is referring to the autofilling saved addresses (otherwise called previous recipients) in mail....

In Mail, got to the Window menu. Click on 'previous recipients' which will give you a list of everyone you have ever sent an email to. Delete the ones you want and hey presto! All fixed!

for completeness it can also be done right on the offending address...

command + shift +3

You can also use Grab, which is in your Apps Folder to do screen capture, timed screen and selected screen capture.

:cmd:+SHIFT+3 = Screenshot the whole screen

:cmd:+SHIFT+4 = Screenshot part of the screen (you get a special pointer that lets you select)

If you have done the :cmd:+SHIFT+4 command then if you press the spacebar before you click the mouse it turns into a camera and you can select which window you want to screenshot,

All the screenshots come on as image files on your desktop, and then you can upload them to somewhere like imageshack.us or attach them to your post.

Cheers,

The best screen capture utility is SnapnDrag (http://www.yellowmug.com/snapndrag/), and free too. But the paid for version will allow you to put an icon in the menu bar for even more ease of use.
