Description: '
After the "failure", the "status" attachwindow still says "delivering" -- it perhaps should say "failed".  Below is some earlier mail on the topic.  -- JonL 23-Sep-84 --'

Having moused "Deliver" to a composition with 11 CC''s, I waited a "long time" and finally went away (GV is sloooo in late afternoon).  Later I returned and the window seemd to be just sitting there as if I had never bugged "Deliver".  Unfortunately, I couldn''t remember whether I had moused SendMail with the ''Last Message'' option or not (which is what I intended to do after the successful sending). The only way I could be sure that the mail didn''t get Deliver''d was to inspect my newMail, since happily I was one of the CCee''s.  '
Could the title bar be changed in this situation?  or alternatively, could the mesage be placed in the "scheduled prompter" above the Deliver-SaveForm-Abort action bar?  As usual, the problem with putting the error msg in the PROMPTWINDOW is that the latter is usually occluded, and easily scrolled-up by other actions.'
