I am trying to use Mail Notes.

My problem is that very often it refuses to accept a subject name and leaves it blank. Notes is supposed to use the first line of the note as the Subject. The absence of a subject field makes Notes useless.

If anyone has a solution I would be appreciative.

(Running Leopard, fully up to date on nearly new iMac. I am trying to copy and paste notes from Entourage into Mail Notes, though the problem with Notes arises even if I type a new one from scratch).

Whilst I am on the subject, does anyone know how to get rid if the yellow Notes background.
