To backup your Postbox email profile browse to
Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Postbox
And copy the folders named xxxxxx.default to your backup location.
If you have created a new profile then your folder may also be called xxxxx.yourprofilename.
If you just want to backup your email and not your preferences or settings then go into your profile folders and backup the Imap, Mail and sometimes Local Mail folders.
You can easily change ‘Harry wrote:’ to ‘On 25/09/09 15:34 Harry Bailey replied with:’ by following these simple steps.
Close Postbox. That’s right, shut it down before you carry on.
Backup and then open your prefs.js profile file which can be found here:
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Postbox
WinXP: Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Postbox
You backed it up? No? Do it now and then carry on.
Now search for the string ‘mailnews.reply_header_type’. Found it? Edit it to the following. Not found it? Add the following…
// Change the reply header
// 0 - No Reply-Text
// 1 - "[Author] wrote:"
// 2 - "On [date] [author] wrote:"
// 3 - User-defined reply header. Use the prefs below in conjunction with this:
// If you set 3 for the pref above then you may set the following prefs.
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_authorwrote", "%s replied with");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_ondate", "On %s");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_separator", " ");
// The end result will be [authorwrote][separator][ondate][colon]
Now you can go crazy with funny reply header text whenever you feel the need.

When you first open Spotify you are offered two tabs ‘What’s new’ and ‘Top lists’. If you select ‘Top lists’ you are then shown two columns which contain a list of the top rated artists, albums and tracks for everywhere, your country or just you.
So you can select to see what tracks, albums or artist you listen to most, or see what are the most popular with others.
As far as the tracks list goes, you can also play it. Choose ‘Tracks’ from the drop down menu on the left, and choose ‘everywhere’ from the drop down menu on the right. You now have a list of Spotify’s top tracks for the whole world. There is no simple ‘play’ button, but these steps aren’t too taxing…

Update: This method is no longer required. As of August 2010 Spotify now has it’s own Playlist Folders feature.
Ok, so you can’t currently (June 2009) have Playlist Folders in Spotify, but this is the next best thing. I promise. I will also sprinkle sugar on it by showing you how to make the left column wider than the allowed maximum.
