Finding unseen messages  

I'm in the process of switching my email handling over from Eudora to Apple's Mail program, and I was intrigued to discover that when Mail is checking to see if there's anything new on the mailserver, its Activity Viewer (when I choose to have it open) first displays: "Finding unseen messages." I really enjoy feeling that soon—very soon—Ancient Eldritch Knowledge in the form of Messages from the Unseen will be Imparted unto me.

Why are you switching?

I was switching because I thought having a spam filter that would "educate itself" would be worthwhile. I also thought it would be nice to be able to write filters with more than just two conditions. Let's see, what else? Um, Mail version upgrades are free, Eudora version upgrades are not. There were probably one or two other reasons I can no longer remember.

At the moment I'm trying to figure out the best way to switch back, as I've discovered I really do like Eudora better. I like having a filter shuttle a message into the mailbox in which it belongs and then opening that mailbox so I notice there's a new message there. And I prefer the way it deals with it when I move my sent messages into the mailbox of the person to whom it was sent. Maybe some others, I'm not sure. Ah well.
