    How is it that you can only have one new message window open in Mail if it's in fullscreen?

    Mail is perfect for fullscreen - all that space - but you can only start one new message? That's a step backwards.

    It's fine when Mail isn't in fullscreen.

    Also, if you create a couple of new messages when you aren't in fullscreen, then switch to fullscreen, those messages only show up in the original desktop (not in the fullscreen one) and you get to them with the Window menu.

    I just cannot now use Mail in fullscreen as I'm used to having lots of messages open at once (very busy, you see).

    it's designed to work like the iPad, only do one thing at once

    sorry not much help, but thats the sacrifice for using full screen apps

    Moreover, is it just me, or did you notice there are no items on the menu/toolbar of a new message in fullscreen, (such as: send, attach, etc.):eek:
