I have had pretty good luck with the 1.2a build but I noticed the Netscape 7 Spellchecker XPI I have been using with Mozilla 1.1 final no longer works. Installing the spellchecker XPI causes Mail 1.2a to crash at startup. I had to manually uninstall it to get Mail working again.

The type ahead find feature looks pretty cool. Very usefull instead of reaching for the mouse.
