Can anyone tell me how to create a set of rules in Apple Mail for OSX. I just want certain mails from certain persons to go automatically into certain mailboxes...

I know how to do it in outlook express on my windows machine, but not on my mac.

Are there any better mail programs around? This one seems to be rather limited...

Maybe you can tell me what you guys use. +pro's and cons :-)

thanksalot !

I personally use Mail and I'm happy with it. I haven't really noticed any cons, but I'm a basic email user. As far as directing certain mail to certain mailboxes, the "Rules" options in Mail's Preferences should allow you to do what you're looking for. While in Mail, just click on "Preferences", then slide over to "Rules", and you can create and modifiy however you'd like.

Nope, didn't work.
I ended up with downloading a little application on versiontracker that makes screendumps and got the pictures that way.

but this shouldn't be the way to do this :-)
