Mail Activity View – What is the point?
Leopard’s Mail.app now has an activity pane in the lower left corner. I like that because I like to see what Mail.app is doing without opening that old modal Activity window (under Command-0).
The thing is .. I’ve never seen anything interesting happen in this new Activity view even though Mail.app is doing all kinds of stuff worth mentioning. Here is a good example:
WTF. Mail.app is doing at least 20 things but that Activity view does not show anything? What is the point of this view?
This looks like another half-baked feature that was never implemented fully.
