...but I updated. All still seems well to me. I never use Mail.app anymore. I use GyazMail and when the author of SweetMail builds is Intel version (he popped onto MacUpdate.com to say he would do that over the next 3 months (back in August)) I might switch back to that from the old days. ;)

Mail has had ongoing issues since the advent of OS X. It drives me completely insane.

I actually like Mail.app but to each their own. I use it because it has better keyboard support than Gyazmail and it seems to thread better for me, and I can expand/collapse threads with the left/right arrow which I cannot do in Gyazmail. Other than the iMap issue with Gmail I really hadn't had any issues with it. It would be nice if it supported encryption/signing, but that's just me coming from a UNIX background.

Oh no doubt it has many more features! I think they need to simply spend more time on ironing out any glitches and pass on adding new features for awhile. And indeed, they have had fixes for Mail frequently in updates. GyazMail does not offer a lot of flexibility, but it is pretty rock solid.
