I'm trying really hard to simplify an overwhelming digital life. Help.

I switched over to iCloud a number of months ago. I currently have rules set up in Apple Mail to filter incoming mail into folders. I want these emails but I don't want them in my inbox. The problem is it doesn't work as I anticipated. It would appear if Apple Mail isn't open, the rules won't apply themselves on my iPhone. And even if Apple Mail is open, the rule doesn't apply itself immediately, and my iPhone is pinged, I check my email, and then the email "disappears" into the folder. This is getting really f*cking annoying. [more inside]

Web Page E-mail Links That Don't Work: Bug or Feature?

Web Page E-mail Links That Don't Work: Bug or Feature? Greetings Mefi-World! Here on my Mac OS X Panther PowerBook, nothing happens when I click on e-mail links on any web page in Safari and Firefox. Is this a feature I need to turn on, or is this intentional; an anti-spam thing? If it's the former, what do I change to make clicking on these links open a new e-mail (in Apple Mail)? All suggestions appreciated greatly.

Mail.app/IMAP: Prior Day's E-Mails Unfile, Dupe, and Unfilter Themselves?

Weird Apple Mail/IMAP Problem: When I wake up in the morning, I often observe that the following has happened: all the emails that arrived in my Inbox the previous day, which I duly filed away in appropriate folders, have appeared again in my Inbox, so now I have TWO copies of each. More bizarrely, my filters have not been applied, and many emails which usually get routed right away to their own folders are still in my Inbox. What's going on? [more inside]

Help me choose the best web browser

Mozilla? Firefox? Camino? I'm ready to try a new browser, but I'm confused by the differences between these three. Currently using Safari 1.2.2 on an iMac and an iBook, both with 10.3.4. I have a license for Opera, but it's simply more than I need. I don't need IRC and I don't need HTML (yet?). I would like for it to sync bookmarks between the 2 Macs (I have iSync and a .mac account) and to work reasonably well with AppleMail, Address Book, etc. What's the best choice for a non-geeky girl?
