    Something strange is happening to my Apple Mail.

    While writing a new email (which opens in a new window) I notice
    that the Mail program is trying to send the mail before I finish it.

    In other words, here I am typing an email with the subject line,
    "To Richard from Ron"

    While typing the body of that mail I see the task bar under MAIL
    ACTIVITY (lower left on Apple Mail) trying to send that mail before
    it is complete.

    Anyone else noticing this?

    Also, Apple Mail seemed to have forwarded a personal mail to
    someone else on my mailing list without me doing it myself.

    I am starting think I might have some virus that is causing this,
    but I tend to have faith that Apple computers are still virus-proof.

    Any ideas?

    The part about sending before you actually click send is normal, however I have no idea about the second part. Every time you type a letter the thing will begin sending it out...just how it works. Not a virus.

    I suppose I never really noticed it before.

    That is really odd that Apple Mail continuously attempts to send
    out your message the entire time you are still typing it.

    Is there a reason for this?

    I sit here and think, "What the hell is being sent out from my mailbox
    while I am typing?!"
