Okay, enough playing around. In Opera, I have to press a key to make an email disappear from the active view, and I only have to type in the little box below in order to send a quick reply, in Mail.app I have to… click everywhere, all the time. I like Mail.app, I like my Apple mouse (like I expected, I don’t miss the right button all that much — unlike the scroll wheel), and it annoys me that Opera doesn’t support AppleScript and doesn’t display a mail count in the Dock, but all that is far from enough reason to justify enduring Mail.app. So, yeah, I spent almost a full day importing my old messages, sorting them, removing spam (because I was importing the Eudora copy, the backup, the one I don’t bother to remove spam from), all for nothing — so what? Besides it’s not actually for nothing: I’m going to keep the Mail.app setup and make it download a copy of my mail every so often, so that Spotlight indexes them. Until Mail 5.0 becomes a real, worthy mail client.
