Ok. I got to play with an older Mac Mini that still has Mail 3.x on it and that version is more like a normal email package. When you want to make a new account, you get a list of parameters to fill out the way you want, rather than a "wizard" that assumes that it knows better than you.

And, notice that there is no account delete feature in Mail 4. You can delete the folder, dump the mail and disable the account, but not totally wipe out the account. Actually, you can eventually, but you have to do it from underneath the GUI.

Comparing the two, Apple really yanked out many of the user settable options and features between 3 and 4. Not an improvement. Somebody needs to tell Jobs to look in on the Mail programming section more often.
