Hi there,

If you could add these, it would be much appreciated.

1. When it's DLing mail, it tells me what e-mail account (the name) it's DLing from.

2. The compact bar works & shows me which account it's compacting & tells you when it's finished.

3. Progress & history log that shows you what TB is doing, has done, etc. like an FTP program.

4. Integrated logging options. Just a checkbox is fine.

Thanks

1. I see that in the Status Bar.

2. I also see that in the Status Bar.

Don't see the Status Bar at the bottom of the mail window? Enable it using Menu Bar > View > Toolbars > Status Bar.

3. Activity Manager? Menu button > Activity Manager or Menu Bar > Tools > Activity Manager.

4. Integrated logging options for what? Chat keeps a log.

1. Unless there's another status bar, all we see is the light blue bar to the left of the "unread" & it doesn't say anything.

Ok, we found some text on the far left , but again, it still doesn't tell us which MB the mail is being DLed from, it just says Inbox. Well when you have almost 50 inboxes, ....

Here's a SS - https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image ... 70a7534f1f

Same with compacting, it doesn't tell me which account or folder is being compacted.

3. So we got this error when we launched TB & nowhere can we see this error in the activity log, plus there's no Control F which would be nice if someone can add that in :)

We wanted the history log specifically for errors we are getting.

4. Integrated logging options for debugging, not for chat :)

Thanks

The only thing I can think to do, is check Bugzilla to see if any bugs have been filed to request those enhancements.

If you don't find any, then file some.
