Alas, while this works for mailto: links in the browsers, it does not work for mail from Mac OS applications such as Aperture.

Doesn't work. Aperture still uses Mail.

comment How can I keep my previous recipients list in Mail.app from containing addresses I have not sent emails to?
You've checked the sentmail folder for actual outdoing messages matching the spurious addresses?

Another possibility: Can you have been hacked? Is your mac being used by a spammer to send out messages

comment My iMac says that my startup disk is full but I barely have anything on my Mac
If items are in the trash they don't show up as free space. When you click on the device in finder (usually Macintosh HD at the bottom of the finder window it says how much free space is there.

comment How to detect spy/keylogger software?
If the rootkit can detect the operation of an executable on a flash, it may be able to hide it's actions. Better, to boot the suspect mac in target mode, then scan from the trusted mac.

comment How do I restore a case-sensitive, journaled Time Machine backup to a case-insensitive, journaled filesystem?
How do you FIND the name collision files? I'm working with restoring a 500 GB user directory. Once found, how can you rename them in the TM backup so that they will restore properly?

comment GPT looks valid. Diskutil sees empty disk
Hmm. Need to write to the author. The page makes it sound like a linux program. The only mention of mac I ever found was snow leopard, and Apple keeps adding new 'features' to things. Thanks for mentioning it. Suggest that you write it up as an answer. Include the fact that's it is actual mac command line tools, etc.

comment GPT looks valid. Diskutil sees empty disk
Good call. I found gdisk in my search, but using it appears to require creating a linux boot disk. I couldn't find a mac binary. That was more work than I was willing to contemplate at the time. I have since solved it using fdisk.

I did that. Tables were the same, headers were different (dd + md5) I don't have a tool that will parse the secondary header.

comment Hard disk drive problem with Macbook Pro, can't see and repair it
More details: 1 How is the drive conneced? USB? Firewire? 2 Do you have problems with other disks attached through the same port? 3 Is the problem reproducable on another mac using the same drive. 4 Can you read a windows formatted disk externally at all? 5 Is this a new problem with this drive

comment CRM Software recommendations
I have looked at various enterprise level applications. Not present. If cleverly done, the sync back to google can be in the form of a formatted notes file for things that cannot be mapped to standard fields. E.g. [Tagname:TagValue:Tagdate] I am quite willing to scrap Gmail. I will consider any application that runs on a mac. Normally before asking on Stack Exchange I do my homework. I have spent somewhere between 15 and 30 hours looking already.

comment CRM Software recommendations
Buscar: I'm asking in "Ask Different" But I clarified that I wanted Mac, ipad, iphone versions ideally. Eir: The enterprise level ones do NOT have this capability; at least the ones I've looked at so far. bmike: I think that the ones that don't work would make a worthy answer too. (A worthy unanswer) The question is already long enougn.

comment Commercial application for cataloging & categorizing images?
Another possibility is to use whatever desktop solution you find effective, then publish using web based photo gallery software.

comment Commercial application for cataloging & categorizing images?
Aperture is good for the keywording. You may be able to share an aperture library read only. It is not designed for multiuser access. If remote use is read only, it might work.

comment WiFi access without internet sharing?
After reading your comment on my answer now I'm confused. Is your network World -- Router/AP --- Mac? and want to connect the other host to the mac through the router/AP Or is it World ---- Mac, and you wnat to connect to the mac through the mac wifi.

comment Software recommendation: Command line network analyser that shows owning process
Good answer. I'd also give credit for nettop, if it were an answer. I've often used lsof to find files. Didn't realize it was so versitile for networks too.
