Okay, this account’s inbox is done downloading now.
This brings me to my next realization: there’s no “mark as read” button in the toolbar, nor is there one available to add to it. Wait, there’s something called “Mark.” I’ll try that and see what it does.
OK, cool, that toggles it. It would be nice if the label on the button told you want pressing it will actually do, but okay, it does what I want.
Time to add another account. My Mozilla one this time, I think.
Another thing: is there a way to have it not default to sending icky HTML email? There’s a setting for it, but I wish I didn’t have to set it separately for each account — it defaults to “Compose messages in HTML” for every new account.
When entering passwords, it would be nice if the bullet (“•”) were used instead of the more generic “*” for the hidden characters. Bullets are the standard for doing this on the Mac.
When I choose to delete the message I’m looking at in a separate window, I don’t want it to automatically pull up the next message. That’s really irritating. I want the window to close, since I’m done looking at it. The way things are now, I have to then re-mark the next message as unread if I’m not ready to look at it at the moment, which is often the case.
I just noticed that when I finish adding a new email address using the wizard, and it pops up the account settings sheet, it’s not selecting the newly-added account by default, so I tend to accidentally change the wrong account’s settings.
It would be nice if I could have an “Unread messages” smart mailbox like I have on the Mac, that shows all my unread messages regardless of which account they’re in. One-stop shopping for new mail.
The customize sound pane says you can use a custom “.wav” file, but in reality it appears to support AIFF as well.
(I’ll look into filing appropriate bug reports once I finish my initial pass through this stuff…)
