After updating to tiger and the iLife 05 apps i noticed that i no longer have the ability to see the status of any downloads or uploads in Mail 2.
Have i got a preference wrong?
Why would mail take this backwards step from Mail 1.0 ?!
As a designer who regularly uploads/downloads files of the mb variety it SH&TS me royally having to open the activity monitor (ala Safari.. ) every time i send a quick email on the road or at the end of a day.

Anyone got any workarounds or advice?

Click on Window / Activity Viewer

Yeah, yeah... I know Click on Window / Activity Viewer does the job, but it used to be an inbuilt part of the primary window GUI.

Maybe it'ss just me complaining but i bet it dissapoints a lot of people. There just seems no reason why you shouldn't be able to easily see the progress by default in either mail or safari.
