"Why did we wait so long for this?"
Solves Mail.app's main issue at a stroke -- and for free.
None so far.
I migrated from Eudora to Mail when OS-X appeared, but I never got to like it as much. It's never been easy to find the Mail window you needed. I can't think of any other program which needed tabs so much. Great.
