    When I have the mail application closed can it still receive mail, and show it in the dock?

    it wont open automatically. close mail with the red X in the upper left, but dont quit the application. make sure the little black arrow is still there. mail doesnt have to be on the screen, the windows can be closed but not quit. hope that helps
