Trash talkin' OS X

OS Xperts: 2 questions related to the trashcan (OS X v. 10.4.9) 1. The trashcan left my finder sidebar. I can find a .trash file to drag over, but its not the same as the original sidebar trashcan. How can I restore the trash to the sidebar? 2. OS X religiously creates trashcan folders for every storage device. On USB keys, this is more trouble than its worth, and causes me to have to empty the entire trashcan to free up space on a USB key I just supposedly deleted everything on. I can't find a Pref panel setting or .plist file that affects file deletion behavior. How can this property (and all trash properties) be modified?

How can I move my OS X desktop icons to the left-side of the screen?

Is there any way to have desktop icons in OS X sit on the left side of the screen instead of the right? I can move them to the left side, but the grid makes it so I can't sit the icons right against the left side - there's a huge gap, instead.

Multiple addresses at the same domain in Entourage?

In OS X mail.app, it is possible to configure an email account and associate it with multiple email addresses by separating the addresses with a comma in the preference pane. This is useful if you have multiple addresses at the same domain because it allows you to reply to mail and send new messages using the address you choose without having to configure two accounts.

Is something similar possible in Entourage? I am trying to achieve the same functionality for someone who needs to use Entourage for other reasons and am hitting a wall. Any help is most appreciated. (example inside) [more inside]
