    I've not seen Tiger yet. Have a Mail 2 question if someone wouldn't mind answering.

    I've been using Entourage for mail because I consider having a preview pane on the right hand side (as opposed to the bottom like in Mail) critical.

    I've seen no reference, but will mail provide an Entourage 2004 like experience where you have the preview pane on the right and then the left side as the recipient and below that the subject?

    I'm pretty sure the new Mail interface is a lot like the three pane outlook view, with mailboxes on the left, message headers up top, and preview pane on the lower right. I don't think there's anything like the four pane view, or the three pane view that shows you calendar/tasks/mail on the left and then headers and previews, since Mail doesn't do anything except mail, and defers to Calendar and Address Book for that. But, erm, if you put the mailbox drawer on the left in Panther Mail, isn't it very close to this view as well? Like this (click for large):


    EDIT: If you want the Entourage three vertical pane view (mailboxes/tasks, headers and preview, left to right), then never mind. :eek:
