Mail Activity Window

Want to know what the Mac Mail app is doing? Go to Window, Activity to bring up the little Activity panel. This will show you which servers Mail is contacting to send and receive email. It is useful when you need to know if Mail is done checking for new messages even though no new ones have appeared in your inbox.

    Steve: If there is no activity, it would be blank. Try looking at it and pressing the "Get new messages in all accounts" button in the toolbar to see some action.
