View Full Version : Unusual Mail setup seen

I was recently watching an American Comedy/Drama and noticed one of the characters using a Mail setup that I have not seen. It shows the Mailboxes down the left side, messages in the middle and selected mail body on a pane on the right (first pic). The second pic shows Mail buttons named a little differently than they are now. I did notice that the application name is Email, but this is easy enough to do. I no longer have 10.5 installed so I can't see whether this is what the new version of Mail looks like.
Any thoughts?

No, that's what the old mail used to look like. In Panther. :)

Get out of town!
I don't remember the ability to have separate live viewing pane. Hmf. Now I want it back!

EDIT: Actually, I don't see how you could possibly be running 10.3 on an G5/Intel iMac.

Doesn't look like Mail in my Panther.

Also - zoom right into the first picture - there's no Blue Apple in the top left corner of that person's screen - just a blank white space.

10.3 could be on a G5 imac

also i believe having the message body off to the side is a plugin

It's Leopard Mail - has the same grey capsule shaped buttons - see QT here in Leopard Mail Sneak Preview (http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/mail.html).

Um are you all high? Tiger has the same pill-shaped buttons. I believe the images have been modified in post to remove things such as the Apple logo and make them just different enough so that their sponsors don't get pissed off with free advertising for apple.

In that case, they look exactly the same, bar the new Leopard Mail features which we cannot see in these images - however, in both Tiger and Leopard, there are 9 menu items up top - what is the largish black icon between the Window and Help menus, when you zoom in ?

It's a TV show... they "customise" programs like that all the time.

Another example, in "The World is Not Enough", when the oil baroness is checking the oil pipelines on her computer... the top part is really the Internet Explorer homepage with some other graphics underneath.

It's either a scripts menu in the wrong place or a plugin like Intego's Personal Antispam's menu.

Sadly, I discovered that too - after I showered using Lynx shower gel, I ran down to and burst into dance at the local dance studio, naked and still covered in water and soap. Surprisingly, none of the women there wanted to have sex with me.

I have that too. I can't remember what I downloaded and installed to do that, but that is the way my Mail looks too.

Also, the arrangement and naming of the icons shouldn't be that hard to change...

A similar incident that happened to me after using a gillette razor when I tried to show women in the street, my silky smooth complexion + aloe vera finish.

NEWS FLASH: Teenage girl was quoted as "feeling disappointed" after application of new pimple cream did not net in her perfect man.

A quick Mail question since we're on the subject: is there any way to group messages that are threaded into an Outlook style "today""yesterday""this week" etc? I have to use Outlook at work, and do find how it groups your emails into date-based blocks quite handy.

Play around with the Letterbox plugin with Interface Builder, and you can get some nice results ...

Smart mailboxes should work well for that. ie. one called "today", one called "yesterday" another called "this week" and just set them to show emails received within the appropriate time frames.

Love letterbox.

Never did get into the 'Losenge look' though. I like nice icons. (http://andrewescobar.com/mailstamps/)
