Question 10.9.2: What Mail issues were fixed?

Ostensibly, 10.9.2 fixed some problems with Mail. But I have yet to find what, specifically, was fixed.

Would some clever chap (or chapette), conversant with the ways of the world, or at least 10.9.2, please shed some light on this murky issue?

Early testing is that the unread mail count for gmail has been fixed. The rest are in thus MacWorld article.

When clicking a mail notification in notification center it now opens in a new individual mail window for me. I'm not sure if that's a "fix" or not. I rather dislike it.

Does anyone know of a way to return to the previous view? (click link, opens with email selected)

My mail app was working perfectly fine.

Then come 10.9.2 update, now it's stuck with beach ball all the time.

As soon as I open Mail app, I will get 100% usage in activity monitor.

Thanks to y'alls help, we may be closing in on this issue. And I just found this by Joe Kissell over at TidBits: http://tidbits.com/article/14547

• Unified mailbox behavior: In 10.8 Mountain Lion and before, you could drag a message from any mailbox to the unified Inbox icon (which contains the Inboxes for all your accounts), and Mail would move it to the Inbox of the account where the message was stored — unless it was stored locally and thus not in any account, in which case it would be moved to the account shown first under the unified mailbox. The same went for other unified mailboxes — Drafts, Sent, Junk, Trash, and Archive. However, in 10.9.0 and 10.9.1, this convenience feature was gone; when dragging a message to any unified mailbox, you had to expand it and select a specific account underneath. Now, in 10.9.2, we’re back to the more convenient Mountain Lion behavior.

• Gmail special mailboxes: In the first two releases of Mavericks, although you could uncheck the Store Draft Messages on the Server, Store Sent Messages on the Server, or Store Junk Messages on the Server checkboxes on the Mailbox Behaviors view of your Gmail account preferences, as soon as you reopened the preferences window, you’d see that they were checked again. In other words, you were obligated to store Gmail drafts, sent, and junk mail on the server whether you want to or not. Furthermore, Mail forced you to use the default locations for Gmail’s Drafts, Sent, Junk, and Trash mailboxes. (That is, if you chose another mailbox and chose Mailbox > Use This Mailbox For, the submenu was dimmed.) Both of those annoyances are now gone; you can store special Gmail mailboxes on the server or not, and if you do, you can choose nonstandard mailboxes if you prefer.

• Gmail mailbox order: Previously, you could not rearrange Gmail mailboxes in Mail’s sidebar; those at the top level of your Gmail account were always in alphabetical order (although, strangely, mailboxes nested within another mailbox could still be reordered). Now you can reorder Gmail mailboxes, but not the special-purpose mailboxes Gmail automatically creates such as Important and Chats.

• Gmail AppleScript problems: If you had an AppleScript that targeted a Gmail mailbox other than Inbox or Archive/All Mail, it would fail, because AppleScript saw all the other Gmail mailboxes as being empty. Now AppleScripts can again see into Gmail mailboxes properly.

• Exchange reliability: Users with Exchange accounts had found that Mail checked for new messages on launch, but not afterwards; you had to either quit and reopen Mail or take your accounts offline and then check for new messages manually (as described in this Apple support article). That has now been fixed.

• Addressing to Smart Groups: The Contacts app lets you create groups of addresses — for example, a Family group that contains the contact records of your family members. You can type a portion of a group’s name and Mail autocompletes it just as it would for an individual name. Autocomplete does not work for Smart Groups (so, that much hasn’t changed since 10.9.1), but now, if you type the entire, exact name of the Smart Group and type a comma or press Tab or Return, Mail at least displays the group name in a nice blue bubble, and the Smart Group does in fact work — Mail sends the message to the correct addresses.

Yeah I don't like this either.
