one word: AMAZING

Why don't display the selected part right below the whole tree?
Together with the possibility to default to either "structure" or "simple 
view" (or "content") and the icon list in a horizontal fashion in the 
content-view it would be the best thing any mailer has today :-)

In the simple view all the "difficult" things would go away, only real 
attachments should be shown as icons in the list, nothing like multipart/
mixed or so....
