    I want my mail to full screen, but on my second desktop, not my 4th.
    It normally lives on the second, but not in full screen mode.

    So, in mission control is there any way in which I can choose which screen something goes to when it goes full screen?
    Or even move it once it's there?

    I don't want to need to think about in which order I need to make apps full screen.
    I just want them to go to the place I want them to - is that too much to ask?

    Nope, when you go to full screen it creates a new "Desktop" for the app to reside.

    You could do this though: Delete all extra desktops, Go into mission control's preference pane and uncheck the option to reorder desktops based on most recently used, Put Mail into full screen, create more desktops.

    This would make Mail always the second desktop in Mission Control.
