    I have several questions, and rather than make a bunch of posts, I figured I'd compile them all in one, and if anyone can answer any or all of these, that would be amazing.

    1. When I create a .pdf, if I copy the text from there then paste it in Mac Mail, it saves it as an image type file that I can't edit. However, it does not do this on Entourage. Any idea how to fix this? Basically, I use different fonts in my pdf's but what to be able to send the actual text to people in a normal font, but it won't let me.

    2. Is there a way to get buttons on the Toolbar to Bold, Italicize, and Underline text when I open up a New Message without having to either use the key commands or open up the Font tab? Think like the buttons they have in Office.

    3. With Entourage, there is a setting that will bring a little pop-up notification in the lower right hand corner to let you know when you have a new e-mail. Is there a way to do this with Mac Mail?

    4. When I attach picture files like .jpg and .png, is imbeds them in the e-mail instead of saving it as an attachment. However, if I atach a .doc or .docx or .xls, is saved it as an attachment. How do I change this so my pics will default as an attachement?

    Thanks again everyone for any and all help.

    Copy it into TextEdit (included) or TextWrangler (free) and then paste it into Mail. Or you can try formatting the Mail message as plain text, but I don't think that will work.

    No.

    You can install Growl Mail for this (google it).

    It just displays inline, but it is sent as an attachment.
