10.3: Easily view Mail.app message replies Apps
Have you written a reply to a Mail.app email some days ago, and can't remember exactly what you wrote? Don't go searching your sent folder! Just click the little circular arrow in front of the message, and your reply gets opened.

[robg adds: This is a wonderful idea ... I don't think it was in Jag; at least, I never tried it if it was!]

But, interestingly, clicking on the "straight" arrow showing that the message was forwarded does NOTHING.

Yeah, I know, a forwarded message often contains nothing but what you forward, but not always...

Yep it was not in Jaguar. I knew it was in the new Panther.
When the GM came out I thought they fixed few bugs with that feature, but nope...
If you use Rules to organize your e-mail you'll find out that the circular arrow will not always work.

For example if you create a new Mailbox in the Mailboxes drawer and then create a new Rule to move mail from Inbox to there, then the circular arrow will not work.
I tried to move back the message from the custom Mailbox to the Inbox and clicked the button, and it worked!! Move the mail back into the custom Mailbox and it didn't work anymore :(
Pretty damn stupid bug :)

This is new, but there is a small entry in the mail portion of the "What's New About Panther" help page. I thought it was the policy of macosxhints not to publish such hints.

Even so, it's not exactly obvious, and it can be pretty useful, so I'm not at all saying to delete this hint or anything.

...and besides, if you use any folders, the feature is useless. Now *that* isn't in the help is it? ;-P

what circular arrow?
Authored by: paulio on Oct 30, '03 11:40:29AM

Hmmm... I couldn't find the arrow with the circle around it in my mail, anywhere.

After lots of searching, I realized that the arrow doesn't appear with a circle around it until you mouse over it.
