    Hi guys, new to the forum and just purchased my first mac which I am really pleased with.

    I have noticed in Mail that the activity bar (bottom left) will tell me it has a certain number of messages coming in (for example: incoming 3 of 3) but invariably I cannot find the number of messages it says have come in! Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    That's a good question. I'm never too sure what that number means, both for sending and receiving, although I always get all my messages. It appears to break the messages up for transmission somehow. I'd like to hear from others on this.

    Also incoming means Apple Hot News RSS Feeds as well.

    Mine for example, just said "Incoming 99 of 99" and I have no new messages. Every time I open mail it says this for X amount of mail... no idea what it means.
