In this chapter, I covered the basics of using Spotlight, Mac OS X's systemwide search te- nology. I showed you how Spotlight indexes your files, how you can perform basic queries, and how you can preview your files using Quick Look. You also saw how to restrict certain information from appearing in your Spotlight results using the built-in privacy features, and you learned some tips and tricks that make Spotlight even more useful. The next chapter covers Apple's Mail application and how Mac OS X Leopard makes it easy to read and respond to messages from your friends and family. 3 43 4 MAIL GETTING STARTED WITH MAC OS X LEOPARD There's no doubt that e-mail has changed the way we communicate with friends, family, and coworkers. What used to require a stamp and a few days to transmit can now be sent instantly via the Internet and an e-mail client. Sharing photos, family news, and other types of data has become seamless thanks to e-mail. Apple has bundled a powerful mail client called Mail (or Mail. app) that takes its roots from the NeXTStep origins of Mac OS X. Over the years, Apple has improved Mail's functionality, but never so much as it has in Mac OS X Leopard. Apple has bundled support for storing notes and tasks in addition to your e-mail messages in Mail. It also added support for reading RSS feeds in Mail in addition to Safari.
