revised How to use different mailboxes (sent folder) in Outlook for Mac
Changed MAC to Mac - not pedantry; it just doesn't make sense as Media Access Control.

comment Applescript to compare two lists of domains and eliminate duplicates
Yes, open a Terminal and go to the folder where the files are located (with cd foldername (assumes the folder is in your home directory). Then copy and paste Lauri's command into the terminal and press Enter. If you were going do to this often, you'd write a shell-script file with that command (the details of doing that are a bit beyond a comment in this thread).

comment Will it work well to use a .dmg as an encrypted folder?
BTW, this works with any other volume; putting a .metadata_never_index file in the root of e.g., an external HDD or flash drive, works to prevent it being indexed as well.

A quick way to do that is to run this terminal command while your disk is mounted: touch /Volumes/NameOfYourDMGVolume/.metadata_never_index. That will create an empty file that Spotlight will see and know not to index the volume.

Interesting solution. But we could only propose pros and cons; only Apple could tell you their reasons (and they aren't likely to).

comment Move Large, Frequent files closer to center of HDD
... The other variable is the rotational latency but this is almost always random, i.e, unpredictable. (Historical trivia: On some of the (now ancient) old drum-memory computers, some programs were carefully optimized to place instructions on the drum where the heads were predicted to be when the previous instruction finished.)

comment Move Large, Frequent files closer to center of HDD
Time to traverse a block is a function of the CentralAngle, not of arc length. Or put another way, the surface speed and arc length both increase proportionally to radial location of the track; their ratio stays constant. Where there can be an improvement in speed due to file position is from the heads having to move less distance radially to reach the desired track, but this is only realizable if you know where the heads tend to "hang out" and you can position the files in question nearby. ...
