+1. Bring back the wheel please.

This concerns me enough that I found this thread. Send feedback to Apple about this please, if it concerns you. No point ******** here really

Another vote to bring the wheels back. The visual feedback is particularly valuable when you monitor multiple accounts.

Thanks for the link. I just sent my feedback.

+ 1 for spinning wheel or some equally useful indicator.
Just sent my feedback to Apple

What do you expect from a company that in OS Lion arbitrarily decided to omit the "Save" or "Save As" functionality on their appliocations. I'm not sure who they think is better served with these so-called "improvements".
Bring Back The Mail Spinning Status Wheels!!

I also sent in the request via the above feedback link. I miss this little option and having the activity window open on a 13 inch screen can be a PIA at times. I have a visually disabled sister that relied on that wheel. She constantly forgets about the activity window even though I have asked her to just leave it open and when she opens mail, it will re-open when she opens mail again

Yes. I find the lack of the Spinning Wheel most frustrating. It was a crucial element in knowing that access was being made to the Mail Server (s).
A user needs this feedback. It's a bit like response time really. Too slow and we all get very frustrated.
All my gear is Apple. I don't understand why the Apple Software Design Staff removed or inadvertantly removed this feature. The coding for it would have been reasonably simple given the complexity ot the balance of the software.
Apple gear is not inexpensive and I am sure Apple do not deliberately set out to disappoint or frustrate.
Apple should ensure the next release of OSX corrects this anomily.

Apple, I want spinning wheels back too!

I too am dumbfounded about this change. Overall, my jump from 10.6 to 10.8 has me concerned. Usually an OS upgrade feels good; improvements are welcomed. But this time I'm finding lots of little things missing or changed that make my computing experience more difficult. Anyway, the other thing that I think is missing is the alert symbol on the account when a message check has failed. I have an email provider that doesn't always work and having a lasting indicator that the last check didn't actually connect is very useful.

Joining the chorus. Bring back the spinning wheel indicator in Mail. Apple is 'spinning' backwards on
Currently Being ModeratedDec 27, 2012 2:18 AM (in response to JDavid)
I'm in. Bring back the weels. Also for indicating the progress of sending mail.
