Composing a Mail message. From the "Options" menu, select: 1. A Priority other than "Normal" OR 2. Return Receipt OR 3. File Sent Message The status bar should give the user feedback that their selections were noted. http://gooey/client/5.0/specs/mail/Compose/Compose.html#Status I'm not sure if this do-able at this stage of the game, but I wanted a record of the spec'd behavior.
Those menu items should also have a checkmark next to it to indicate the current setting. That's been filed as bug: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23458
Just an FYI, here... return receipt is listed to be taken out of options.
Ah, that's right. Return receipts is out of NS6. I'll remove it from the menu spec. Thanks.
moving to future milestone.

Jennifer, is the statusbar really appropriate for this? If so, what text should we display? Platform -> All OS -> All
OS: Windows 98 → All
Hardware: PC → All
I think priority should be a popup menu to the right of the Subject field, as it was in 4.x. As for File-Copy-To, that can probably be available as a `header' in the addressing widget, can't it?
This is what was previously discussed: http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/specs/compose/#Status I agree the Status bar might not be the best place for this type of stuff. The "Tabs" in the addressing area of 4.x didn't work. >I think priority should be a popup menu to the right of the Subject field, as >it was in 4.x. As for File-Copy-To, that can probably be available as a >header' in the addressing widget, can't it? In general, users rarely change the priority of messages, so we felt it didn't need such a prominant position. FCC as an option in the addressing area was discussed. In fact, I believe, 3.x or so did it this way? Anyway, some mail folks were really against that implementation because it isn't truly the same as "To, Cc, Bcc, etc.". (I think it is a good place for it personally).

*** Bug 135248 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Works on Windows XP, does not work on Mac OS X.
Partially works, that is... the menu itself changes to reflect the format or priority change but the message window itself doesn't update. On Mac OS X the menus don't even change.
taking all of varada's bugs.
