    When I first switched to Mac - I spent a bit of time trying to get cntrl-enter to work with Mail - but never was successful.
    Brian, you can go to Keyboard and commands and make a new command. I have been trying but so far can't figure out what word the Send button needs. If I figure it out I will post it for you so you can use your CTRL+Enter!

    Aside from this issue, a great redesign. I especially like the iOS-style "preview" of the message in the inbox.
    You can make the ScrollBars show in System Preference and just click them and drag up and down.

    Let me know when you get that working. It was something I tried when I first switched - and I finally gave up. I tried a number of things including assigning a shortcut - never seemed to work.

    I HOPE I can figure it out. So far no luck finding right command to enter to trigger the Send.

    Brian, could you get used to Command+D? If so I got it working!!!! Control+D no matter what I did will not work, which is strange as it's just a keyboard mapping. Be sure you completely quit the Mail app. Open Keyboard and Shortcuts and make a new one under Applications. Call it Send. For the keys hold Command+Enter and get out of the editor. Open Mail and it should now send with Command+Enter. Tried it with Control but nada. Not sure why!

    Hi - yeah, I tried rebuilding the mailbox, but i'll try it again. I just don't understand why the messages won't load.

    I've tried to rebuild the mailboxes several times, but it makes no difference that I can see. The messages still have that spinning thing like they're trying to load, but the content never displays.

    I could do cmd+enter, I'm used to cmd now. Cmd or cntrl+D is the default send shortcut - if I recall correctly. I haven't even brought up Mail since I gave up a few months ago. I also can't remember if I tried to assign cmd+enter - but will go check that out in a bit. At the time - I was just feeling my way around OS X, so I may not have tried it. I'll report back. Thanks

    If you tried rebuilding the mailboxes and that did not work I suspect you are right about the culprit is a piece of corrupted HTML mail. I had that problem with an earlier version of Mail. Every time I opened to the inbox the crash was almost immediately I solved the problem by deleting the top message in whatever box is selected when the problem occurs.

    The rebuilding didn't work. I don't know what to do now.

    Are you always working in the same mailbox when the problem occurs? If so the topmost message in that box might be the culprit.

    Should work for you. I am in Lion but I don't think they changed mails Shortcuts. Keep me posted. Hope that does it for you.

    I am still working on an Apple Script to hit Send with CTRL+Enter so hang in there! Grin

    I have a major problem with either mail package. Why when I delete items in any box, I go to 'All Mail' and there they are again. So I delete them then again in trash and bin and all looks ok till…. a couple of minutes later, they're back!! How is that? Can anyone advise what if anything to switch off….
    Cheers..

    Lmao...it's not that important...that's one of the reasons I bought MS Office , although - when I finally take the Lion plunge - I may give Mail another try since I really want full sync across all devices. I appreciate the effort though!

    To me Brian, once I start something I like to finish and learn something new in the process!!
