    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me how I can delay mail being sent. I am a recent convert from Outlook.... Outlook as the ability to put the mail in the outbox and then I tell it when I want to Send & Receive. I find this very useful. How do I get my mac to do this? I have searched the preferences but found nothing. It seems like such a simple request...

    Some other questions re: mail.
    On the top line in mail where the headings are: From, Subject, Date Received. How do I add Size to the list or any other heading- Are there others?
    Also What is the 'Speech Bubble' icon signify on that some line?

    How do I click on a mail message in mail to delete it Without it opening the message. Or opening the one underneath it.

    Thank you!

    I don't have my Mac in front of me, but you should be able to hide the preview pane. I think it's under the View menu option.

    Hmm. Could try taking your mailbox offline, then go online when you want to send (Mailbox - Take All Accounts Offline). It's not really equivalent to Outlook's Send/Receive though.

    View - Columns.

    Remove the preview pane by double-clicking on the dividing line between the email and the message list above. There isn't a command in the View menu for this, but there should be as it's not very intuitive.

    You can also just drag the message to the Trash.
