In today’s digitally connected world, where more and more of our planning and communication are facilitated with our computers, people increasingly rely on e-mail, contact management, and calendaring to help facilitate their planning and communication needs both at work and at home. These three tasks tend to go hand in hand, so much so that many e-mail/contact-management applications combine them all in a single application (like Microsoft’s Outlook and Entourage). While a number of single applications include all of these services, in Snow Leopard (as with previous versions of Mac OS X), Apple ships three separate applications. However, because of the nature of Mac OS X, these three applications work together seamlessly, providing the advantages of separate applications with the conveniences of a single application. In this chapter, we will cover all three of these default applications:
  • Mail

  • Address Book

  • iCal
