That happens very often, doesn’t it? Then why not visually check who’s turn to answer and how many answers are on hold in your Mail app?
A blue ball means “It’s MY turn to answer”, while the yellow is “I’m waiting for an answer”. If you keep ignoring a question, the ball gets bigger and bigger!
“WHO’S GOT THE BALL” image visualizes who’s turn to give an answer. In the message area, the correspondent question is highlighted.
If it’s you who are waiting for an answer, there’s a yellow ball held by the other side.
In most cases, though, there are more than one question in a message. In that case, you’ve got as many balls as the questions being asked!
