10.7: Mail message mouse rollover Apps
When rolling the pointer over the message dividing line four new instant selections appear for trash, reply, reply all and forward.

If you roll the pointer over the message dividing line four instant selections popup for Trash, Reply, Reply All and Forward.

This can be somewhat useful and avoids a trip to the tool bar or menus, especially if you are in a threaded message with numerous responses.

I never noticed this behavior before for the Mail client, and thought it was worth a mention.

[crarko adds: I looked in Snow Leopard and couldn't reproduce, so I assume this is indeed new behavior in Mail 5.]

I saw this the day Lion was released, but never thought it warranted being a hint. It's pretty obvious and completely self-explanatory.

crarko - You don't have Lion either? You really need to get Macworld to purchase a test machine for you. (Or give you a hand-me-down.)

I am using 10.7.2 and this does not work for me, and to my recollection has never been the case since my upgrade to Tiger.

New Icons Cause Fancy 'Duplicate Window' Bounce
Authored by: Bairnsfather on Nov 21, '11 09:58:29AM

Reply, Reply All, and Forward have a different behaviors than the toolbar icons.

The toolbar icons make the original message instantly go away.

The new icon set does a fancy “duplicate window” bounce and leaves the original message in place. This is handy since it means if you want to refer to the original email without quoting a lot of it, it’s still open.

I am not getting any rollovers... Is the "dividing line" the horizontal line between messages in the second column?

what is meant here is the dividing line between the message header and the message body, not the dividing line between messages in the sidebar. I was confused at first also. I usually just right click on the message header in the sidebar and there are several options.
