Apple brags that OS X Mountain Lion boasts more than 200 new features. Even though that number involves some creative counting, there are a lot of impressive additions. Here are 14 of the most important.
Designating VIPs in Mail
Mountain Lion makes it way easier to keep track of messages from the people who matter most to you, by designating them as VIPs. You do so by clicking the star icon to the left of the person's name in an incoming or sent message. Thereafter, every message to or from that person in a message list will be marked with a star. Each VIP also gets his or her own entry in a new VIPs section of Mail's Mailboxes sidebar; click a name in that section, and you see a list of all messages to or from that person in all mailboxes.
