However, this preference is not saved between program executions. In fact, it does not even work properly for subsequent messages. As soon as I select another message, it brings back the preview pane with a height of one text line instead of zero. Please fix it so that I can have no preview pane and can save this preference for all future program executions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to email inbox. 2. Resize preview pane to zero height. 3. Quit program and restart it. Actual Results: The preview pane was back to its default height. Expected Results: It should have retained my preference for no preview pane (zero height).
View -> Show/Hide -> Message Pane. Does this function correctly? When I resize the message pane to zero height, it de-checks this menuitem. Rechecking it shows your described one text line. tested in 1.4, winxp.
Which layout of the 3-pane window are you using? Normal (folder-tree pane goes from top to bottom) or 'alt' (message window goes from left to right)? If 'alt' you are probably encountering bug 77447. In normal layout, the message pane stays hidden for me.
still wfm in 1.6, winxp. Reporter, please reopen this bug with new test info in 1.6+ builds, and answers to the questions raised in comments 1 and 2. Please specifically note whether your conditions match those in bug 77447.
