Hmmm, when I think again about this, I must admit that I have mixed 
feelings. It *is* indeed simpler to implement (it's ready, in other 
words), but it might confuse users if they can activate a mailbox and a 
message with a single click or move to the next message using the up/down 
arrows, but they have to double-click a part in the tree view (or hit 
space). (This was actually the reason I used "changed" as it confused me, 
but I'm sure others are more intelligent/flexible... ;-)) Does the HIG 
have some wisdom ready for this?


Cheers, Albrecht.
