Using build 1999121508m12 on linux only, when you open a New Msg window, the cursor is in the message body by default and but there is no focus (if you start typing it goes nowhere), curor should be in the Addressing To: field Using build 1999121508m12 on mac only, the cursor isn't displaying but the focus is in the Addressing To: field as it should be (if you start typing the email address it's in the right place). Using build 1999121509m12 on Window is OK. I looked for opened bugs on the default postion of cursor for a New Msg window and I could not find one, so here it is.

reassign to editor folk. MsgCompose set the focus into the first <to> field but for some reason, doesn't works very well on all platform. It may be an activation or a focus problem.
assigning to jfrancis, setting to m13
actually assigning to jfrancis this time
I'm worried that this may not be an editor bug, but I wont be able to investigate til Jan.

assigning this one to buster for review/debugging
This is a hyatt/saari focus bug. Assigning to saari, cc hyatt. Nothing has changed about the way the editor displays the caret of focus, so we must not be getting the focus message. I know saari checked in some focus fixes since this bug was submitted. Could QA please verify that it's still a problem on Mac and Linux? Thanks!
esther - can you double check?
Using 20000104 builds on mac linux and win98 here is what's happening now when you click New Msg: Mac - cursor is not visible, just start typing and the text is displayed in the To: addressing field as you type. Should have visible cursor. Linux - cursor is visible and flashing in body of message, just start typing, the cursor doesn't move and no text is visible. Should have visible cursor in first Addressing field, should have focus so when you start typing the text is displayed as typed. Win98 - is OK, cursor is in To: addressing field, just start typing and the text is displayed as typed.

Changing summary from "cursor" to "caret"
I don't think this particular bug is focus related. If the characters are getting to the right place, I think focus is fine, *especially* if the cursor shows up after you start typing. We're not mucking with focus at that point. The non-xp nature of this also doesn't point to focus problems. Could someone else please look at this?
reassigning to jfrancis. Joe you may want to get Kin to help out on this one if you need assistance.
Chris, the non-xp nature also doens't point to an editor problem. So that's neither here nor there. Anyway, the characters are _not_ showing up at the right place on linux. That seems like a focus problem, and is the worst part of this bug. I'll try to figure out why the caret isn't drawing on the mac. Will you look into the focus on linux? reassigning to sarri.
Okay, I'll look at the linux issue. Thanks for the help!
No time for this level of bug in M13, moving to m14
Okay, I think I've fixed this now. At least, characters appeared by the cursor :-)

Using build 2000-05-16-09 on win98, mac and linux the carat/cursor is correctly placed in the 1st addressing field when clicking on New Msg and this field has focus. Verified.
