Description

18 years ago
Using may 01 m16 commercial builds

You cannot display messages in the 3-pane window message pane after you toggle
View|Message once.  The pane is still open visually, but no messages will load
in the pane. You must toggle again to load message contents.

This is a regression in View|Message being able to physically close the message
pane.  It is "virtually" closed.

Steps:

1.  Open mail 3-pane window, login to POP or IMAP account and select a message
in the inbox.  Message contents appear in the 3-pane window's message pane.
2.  Toggle View|Message.
    Result:  nothing happens, pane is still open.
3.  Select a different message.  No message pane activity.
4.  Exit and relaunch, login and select a message.
    Result:  only start page add content will display, no message contents will
load in message pane. 
5.  Toggle View|Message.
    Result:  Now message content loads in message pane.

To clarify:  This problem is for the MENU item View|Message, which worked on
Friday to hide/show message pane.  I am not referring to snapping or dragging
the splitter to hide the message pane (that hasn't worked right for some time).
