Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org's Technical Bigshot, today posted what mozilla.org believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how mozilla.org plans to get there, and what the timeline to get to 1.0 is. Also, it explains why a 1.0 release is needed, and why it's not just another milestone.


#44 Mail composition option toolbar?

I have been using Mozilla as my primary browser and email client for the past few months.

Until I read hwaara's post to bug #90328 a few minutes ago, I did not realize that Mozilla had any way to set the priority for outgoing mail. I figured it just had not been implemented yet like the unimplemented return receipt support (bugs 16241, 69126, 93085 (56377?) ).

I am glad to see that it is indeed possible to set priority, but I do not think that the current UI for doing so is particularly intuitive or convienent. Although the UI placement in 4.x might not have been the most obvious, once you knew where it was, the grouping of message priority, return receipt, and encryption options in the mail composition window was very handy.

I am not sure what the plans are for UI placement for return receipt and encryption options, but if the only way to set them is via the Options menu (as it is currently the only way to set priority) then the process for sending a high priority, encrypted email with a return receipt requested (not really an unusual thing to do) will be a whole lot less userfriendly process than it is with 4.x email.

Is there a chance that all of these can be put into a new toolbar for the email composition window? Who is responsible for making such a decision?
