10.4: Add a Priority pop-up to Mail's message template Apps
Tiger only hintMail now lets you adjust the priority of a message. When composing a new message, click the small square to the left of Account, and a drop-down menu appears. Select Customize from this menu, and you can control exactly which fields appear on the new message template. Over on the right-hand side, there's a checkbox next to an exclamation point. Check the box, then click OK -- feel free to enable or disable any of the other fields as well.

From now on, new messages will have the Priority drop-down menu on the right side of the header area. This tip courtesy of macosxhints' reader Cap'n Hector, via email...

Now if only there were a way to request a reciept, so that you knew Windows users had read their mail.

You will *never* get a notification which tells you that someone *read* your mail. You only get a notification when the mails arrives or was opened first. And then of course you will only get a notification if the user said yes to the question of his mailer... So email notifications are *extremely* vague...

Did anyone else get confused the first time they selected customize, before realizing that the message window was no longer an active window, but rather a display of looks-functional options? My first reaction was to assume that the message window now offered all options for me to use, not a menu of choices.

The message window customization process is one of the most opaque implementations I've seen from Apple. Ever.

No, I thought it was pretty easy to tell that it was in Customize mode. What I don't like is that if you default to having the cc and bcc fields turned off, the only way to turn on the cc field on a per-message basis is to choose Customize and turn on the cc checkbox. Why didn't they just put cc and bcc menu items in that popup?

Hmm. "Bcc" does appear in my list ... and if you hold shift while you hit "Customize", you can see the little text fields get un-squished. Looks weird.

I can't, however, figure out how to set the priority on incoming mail. (How annoying is it to have listservs with high priority set?)
