reduce number of mail toolbar buttons by default [but leave junk button]
accepting, transfering adt status from bug #191477
I'm not sure what toolbar buttons you want to remove. Currently we match the Mail toolbar spec except that we have added the necessary Junk button. Bug 191477 doesn't tell us which button we want to remove. The Junk Mail spec shows that we should remove the Next button. Is this the button in question for this bug?
I'd recommend File, Print and Stop to be off by default. File - DnD is much more common, plus, Move/Copy is also available in Message menu and context menu. Print - For most users, printing out msgs is a less frequent action. Available via File menu and context menu. Stop - I hope its rare that we take so long to load a msg that Stop is often nec. (I'd also love to see Stop moved to the status bar as a small icon next to the progress meter). Keep in mind users can turn these back on if desired. Just makes for a less crowded/overwhelming toolbar on first usage. I also think we should swap Junk and Delete buttons (see spec) so that Delete is the far most right button by default. Makes this high frequency button an easy/fast target.

RE comment #2: "The Junk Mail spec shows that we should remove the Next button." I don't use "Next" for mail, but always use it in Newsgroups. Hopefully, there is a way to keep "Next" ON by default (at least) in Newsgroups. RE comment #3: "For most users, printing out msgs is a less frequent action." My parents (~70 yrs old) print out almost ALL their e-mails. Corporate users often print out all their important correspondence. Pleae leave "Print" button ON by default. PS. In Newsgroups, please swap "Mark" and "Junk" buttons so that "Next" and "Mark" buttons are next to each other. It makes much more sense that way. --> ... | Forward | File | Next | Mark | Junk | Print | ... --> REOPEN ?

Using trunk build 20030325 on winxp macosx and linux this bug is verified per fix per spec on 3-24 @ 00:54. Peter, the request you listed after this fix went in should be written up in a new bug. Note, we kept the Next button as default, at least Print can be easily returned to the toolbar via Preference but the swapping of Junk and Mark will need a new bug. Verified
OK, I just filed bug 199262 (make "Next" and "Mark" buttons are next to each other). Should be trivial to fix(?). PS. I still think it was a mistake to turn off the *Print* button by default. Printing the only _bridge_ between the virtual and the real worlds.
