I remember that had a folder called nicknames but I have not heard of anything Mac related that goes by that name.
(ps. How's Mumsie?)
Can someone tell me whether there is an equivalent in OS X to the old "File-->Put Away, used when there was a file or folder on the desktop that got out of its proper place? Somehow, I got the Nicknames Folder (or a copy?) - from Gmail or Apple Mail or someplace - on my desktop, and I really don't know how to get it back where it belongs. I did some searches in Spotlight, but what I got was not what I wanted to know.
Forgive my ignorance, but that's about all I can tell you. I don't want to do anything hasty, so I'm not going to trash it unless I get the go-ahead. I am using a MacBook running OS 10.5, by the way. I have a Mindspring email account that I never use now, a Gmail account and an Apple Mail account. The mail from the first two gets imported into Apple Mail. Let me know if I've left any pertinent information out, please.
Thanks so much,
