    Default Mail Interface Mod

    Back before Leopard I was running a small mod on Mail that rearranged the usual viewer window into three vertical columns. MUCH better than the standard one vertical, two horizontal setup.

    On moving to Leopard I lost the name of this mod, but now that I'm back with 10.4.11 I'd like to find it again.

    Anyone know its name?

    I think this is the one you're after:

    Even funnier, it writes the following in Console log:

    Code:
    2007-03-08 07:13:01.343 Mail [13957] Bwahaha! I am a LetterBoxExpandingSplitView, and I shall always be vertical!

    There are 2, both Leopard compatible I think.

    I use Letterbox:

    But there's also WideMail:
    http://www.daneharnett.com/widemail
    which has a 2-line list which allows the whole subject line to be displayed.

    I initially had the same problem with the latest version (Letterbox 0.22). Followed the install instruction, and nothing happened.

    Went back to the site and downloaded 0.16 and it worked immediately....

    Maybe 0.22 is for Leopard?

    You are running the latest version(V2.2 i think..) which is 10.5 only. Download the older version (V1.6 i think) it works fine.

    Same problem - I just can't get my mail to use the vertical col - I have unistalled and re-installed.,

    Can anyone tell me how to re-activate the col view?

    Of the two, I much prefer Widemail. I haven't had an issue since it was released.
