A recipients will see in the to field Ways and Means Committee
A rather than the individual e-mail addresses of each member?

Put  the  Ways and Means Committee email-address in To: and the addresses of
the  rest  of  the group in BCC:.

That  way,  each  member  will  receive the message addressed to Ways and Means
Committee but they will not see the addresses of the other members of the 
group.

 For some reason it is different here: ctrl+shift+-

M ctrl+- expands the currently selected thread.

 And: ctrl+shift++


Likely this depends on the localisation of your keyboard. On my UK 
keyboard, I do not need shift to reach + or - on the numeric section 
or to reach - on the main section. I need shift to reach + on the main 
section, so if you prefer I could describe ctrl++ as 
ctrl+shift+=. It just makes more sense to me to characterise it as 
ctrl++ as it is easier to remember that the opposite action to - 
is +.

Address AutoComplete

2009-08-11 Thread jb_lists_tb
Hello TB! Users,

Is  there a way to turn off Address Autocomplete of the To: field? The
risk  of  errors  is  quite  high,  particularly  since  the method of
selecting  the desired entry from the list (down arrow and then Enter)
is  different  from  that of most other autocomplete lists (down arrow
and tab).

Options | Preferences | Viewer/Editor | Message headers

select To: and press Edit. On the Editing tab, remove whichever
ticks you wish. The change will also apply to CC: and BCC: fields.

This will not affect the address history dropdown list, which is 
accessed via the double-down-chevrons button at the end of the address 
input field.


 The risk  of  errors  is  quite  high,


especially if you are including Input History in your list of
sources to autocomplete from - obsolete addresses, people you only had
occasion to contact once, previous mis-types...

I find the suggestions from AB sometimes useful but the autocomplete a
bit of a liability when I'm half asleep.

I've not encountered the down arrow and tab method myself (-;

Thank  you,  just what I was looking for.

Rather than make the address picking process completely manual (which
means opening the Addressbook and selecting the contact), I have
settled for displaying a list of suggestions from the default account
addressbook without autocompleting. It is the autocomplete that trips
me up!

For down-arrow, tab, I was thinking of the autocomplete in browser
(Firefox) fields, where you can select the entry by using the down
arrow to select the entry you want and using TAB to fill the field
with it. Enter there results in submitting a blank form!

How do you control content of address history drop-down at end of To: field

2009-08-11 Thread MFPA
Hi


Just wondering if there is a way to control what appears in the
address history drop-down at end of the To: CC: and BCC: fields.

I know you can park, unpark, and delete entries but how do you control
what is added to the list in the first place and how long it stays
there unused?


The settings at Options | Preferences | Address History seem to be
supposed to control the contents of the Addresses folder tab rather
than this drop-down list.

Any ideas?

Assuming the first entry on the list was blank. (-; 

I usually select those with the mouse - then sometimes end up changing
the selection by scrolling down the page using the scroll wheel!
