Re: [Evolution-hackers] 'vertical' view?

It really requires being able to change the display of the tree list
of messages, dynamically, to compress things into a single column of
text with multiple lines per row. Otherwise, the mail list is too
wide to make this useful at all.

One way to use evolution is to just use the external mail display
window that you get by double clicking on an item in the list. Though,
this may have different behaviour with viewing next/prev when you go
through the list, since it is essentially the same as opening multiple
evolution mail windows. Then you can turn off the "preview" area.

While the "mails are longer" argument makes sense, it conflicts with
the idea that the preview pane is for previewing. Previews don't tend
to show you all of the info. :)
