OK, thanks. Is there some rationale for removing this from the UI?

Purging the more esoteric and seldom used options to try and get the
window size under control.  There's more to be done but it's a start.

Perhaps a comment along the lines of "For other options use 'gsettings'
from the Shell" would at least give a hint.

I never understood the need to remove those options, I also noticed
multiple users asking for them, especially because those all are common
options, which each sane mail client should have accessible in UI, not
through "registry" (would you imagine any commercial application asking
users to open "registry" to tweak such fundamental settings?).

That said, I do not agree with "space saving", the cost of it is too
high, too hard configurability, which is the thing I used to like on
Gnome (the current trend makes configurability harder and harder,

+1 from me too. Applications like e-mail clients should remain highly 
configurable. These are applications for daily use and every user has a 
different work flow and should be allowed to adapt the application to HIS work 
flow instead of having to adapt his work flow to the application (or rather to 
work flow of us, developers).


Just my opinion on the subject.
