This one is a mystery to me. By default, the Mail Viewer window in Panther’s Mail contains a number of columns, including “From”, “Date received”, “Subject”, etc.
One of these columns is called “Rank”. For some reason, however, this column cannot be turned off using the “Columns” sub-menu in Mail’s “View” menu. In other words, it is always visible. But I have no idea what it is for.
I’ve ended up moving the column to the far right, and making the columns before it big enough so that the “Rank” column is actually hidden from view. But I still would like to know what on earth it is for.
Needless to say, a search for “rank” in Mail’s Help returns “No matching help topics were found”. Strange.
