Seems like there's always more to find out (How do they think of all these things?)

Mail messages can be saved as Textedit files, complete with links, by pressing Cmd-Shift-S.
THE TIP: If the message has an attachment, it is saved in the body of the Textedit file.
AND, if it is, for example, a multi-page pdf, it is included with a scroll bar to look through the pages.

WHAT IF: you wish to save the pdf file separately (for example, to fill out a form, etc.)? No need to go back to Mail & download.

JUST DRAG the image of the file from the Textedit document to the desktop, and it's saved as a separate file.

Thanks for the great tip. I've already used it and will use it frequently.

It's called "share the wealth," Jamie.
Sometimes I find a new capability - new to me, anyway - and am reluctant to post it, thinking "everyone else already knows this."
