How To: Getting Mail.app to accept ‘Command-Return’ as a Shortcut for Sending Mail

Uncategorized No Comments »

So I’ve recently acquired a shiny new bit of tech from Apple (13″ Air) to play with and I’m in the middle of getting it set just how I like it. You know the score; making sure the terminal is just how I like it instead of that ugly default white, editing PS1 and making some new SSH keys.

Anyways… I have an email based alert system which uses Curl to monitor a website for updates (new work available) and then alerts me if there is a matching position. The system periodically checks the site to make sure I’m one of the first people to hear about these positions.

So what happens when I’m not interested in the job? I need a way of silencing the email. I obviously don’t want to keep getting emails about things (in this case work) I am not interested in. I simply have to reply / send an email back with a specific trigger and the job (through the magic of a postfix transport) will be silenced (Yay for MySQL).

This happened to me today. I quickly created a response to put an end to the disinteresting position and hit Command-Return on my new Mac Air. It abruptly responded with a dull tone. How rude I thought. When I looked at the menu the option to ‘Send’ under the Message section of the menubar was set to something like ‘Command-Shift-D’. That’s just ridiculous though isn’t it?! Why would you want to hit three keys when two will perfectly suffice?!
