Currently Being ModeratedMar 5, 2006 5:22 AM (in response to Ron Nando)Tiger Mail only shows your Outbox when you have email waiting to be sent. Email messages appear in the Outbox when you attempt to send a message when you're working offline, or if Mail tried but was unable to send a message.
Once the Outbox appears in your mail viewer windows, it remains visible until you quit Mail or close all of your viewer windows.
I'm not sure why but Apple also removed the progress bar with Tiger Mail.
I've been using the Mail.app exclusively since Jaguar was introduced and I have always preferred using the Activity Viewer window so not a problem for me but this is your only option if you want to see detailed activity of the sending status.
You can send Apple feedback regarding the progress bar at the following link.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2006 12:16 PM (in response to Allan Sampson)Well I like having an Outbox folder - it allows me to re-think replies while it sits there - gives me a chance at it between the automatic fetch/recieve cycles..
Back to Eudora, then...

Not sure what you mean by this.
When selecting Send for a message, nothing is sitting there in the Outbox mailbox unless you are not connected to the internet at that time or there is a problem with the SMTP server used by the account and Mail is unable to send the message.
If either of these two things occur, the Outbox mailbox will appear and shows in the mailboxes drawer as previously provided.
If you are connected to the internet and no problem sending messages, there is no reason for the Outbox mailbox to appear IMO (and obviously the opinion of the Apple Mail team) since messages pass thru the Outbox mailbox during the sending process only.PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/1GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.5), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video
