comment Can I extract the body of an email message using Automator without an AppleScript?
The simple answer is No. Unless you find a third party Automator Action.

Yes that is correct you should read the man page on defaults developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/… You can also type in terminal man defaults to see it

comment How to change spelling library in Mac OS X with a shortcut?
Thanks for pointing that out. I did not realise it was third party. Should have as I could not find it on mine. Not sure if it is expected to work with them but this is how you setup spelling for multiple languages..

comment External Hard Drive size
@njboot The article states it is a bad idea NOT to have a copy of important data else where other than the External hardrive. And if you do then do it as I have suggested. No where does it say anything about partitioning, backup and storage leading to Logical volume failure. I am not asking you to remove your vote (opinion) but you comments show misunderstanding of the article you refer to and is misleading. Here is a chat link you ask for.. chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/23685/external-hard-drive-size

@njboot please remove your comments since you have not shown any evidence to your claim and the link you have provided states doing exactly what my answer does.

comment External Hard Drive size
@njboot, I cannot see what you a saying in the link. It actually seems to say what I am saying. If you want to do this anyway, it's much, much better to partition an external drive into 2 (or more) parts, also called volumes. Assign one to Time Machine, for its exclusive use for backups; use the other partition(s) however you want. If you are talking about allowing TimeMachine to backup the second partition. I have not said or implied to do that. And I would advise to use the TimeMachine to options to exclude it.

@njboot i have never had an issue doing this and I would love to see your factual evidence that using Timemachine on a partition and splitting a disk like this is ill advised.
