I get the "spinning dial" in Mail, and actually, Leopard goes on step further because now you can add a "Mail Activity" window the bottom left corner.

Hmm...I dont get the spinning animation and I only get the mail activity when It's actually retrieving the mail. Any suggestions on how to fix it??

I get the "throbber" fine when checking for mail.

I just noticed tho that mail still has a silly behaviour:- if a new mail is thought to be junk or you click on junk, it moves it to the junk folder.. If you peruse your junk folder and decide something is not junk, surely by clicking on "not junk" it should move it back to its original folder?

This happened even with the old pre-Leopard Mail. I agree it was annoying.

On an unrelated note, anyone seeing their Spotlight search window hiding behind a window when you open it, periodically? You can only see the top part of the search box.
