Suggestion #1: add a menu item to open the structure view in a separate
window (like view source), and selecting a part there jumps to it.
Problem: The message might have been closed in between... *or*
Suggestion #2: replace the preview part below the index and in the message
window by a notebook with two pages, putting all the stuff we see now into
page #1 and the structure in #2. Selecting a part in this page should
automatically jump to the right part in #1 (this idea is slightly like
sylpheed's approach, but a little more intelligent).
To make the structure of a message somewhat clearer, I had a patch some
months ago which showed all embedded headers (of message/rfc822 parts)
plus a vertical line to the left indicating the nesting depth. Although
this makes Simon's problem even worse (as there will be more data 2b
displayed), I still think that balsa *must* have some way to at least
display the embedded headers. If you agree, I could try to reanimate this
part of that patch.
Just my ¤0.01...
