After reading the piece on Mac Observer’s review of MailTags, a former Greek student of mine emails to ask how the heck she can get this feature in Mail.app.
It’s a new feature in Mail 2.0 or “Tiger Mail” and not enabled by default (I think. Who can remember that far back?), so perhaps she is not the only one.
Open a new message window, as if you were going to compose an email. Down in the bottom lefthand corner of the top pane, you will see a little button with three text fields and a triangle on it:
Click it and select “Customize…”.
You will see a window like this offering all sorts of additional features:
Any option here that you check will be displayed every time you open a Compose window.
Message priority is on the bottom right. You can choose to have the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) button or the field that specifies a different reply-to address always displayed. You can turn off the signature field if you want.
