The mail opening screen shows information about messages waiting for you in your system mailbox. New messages are added to the end of the message list as they arrive:
Message status symbols (called flags)
can appear in the left margin of the message
list next to the individual listings. These characters
tell you facts about the messages: whether or not
you have read this message, whether it has an attachment, whether you have
replied to it, and so on.
The following table shows a complete list of message status flags.
|+||A message that has not been read yet. The ``+'' disappears only after you read the message.|
|a||A message that has attachments.|
|!||An urgent message that requires immediate attention.|
|s||You have saved a copy of the message to a file or mail folder.|
|f||You have forwarded a copy of the message to others by selecting Forward from the Read menu.|
|r||You have sent a reply to the sender by selecting Reply from the Read menu.|
