Hello everybody

 

 

I've faced some weird issue with my mail.app. My job is very mail-dependent, therefore organizing it is important. Here is the problem :

 

My mailbox list contains a lot of mailboxes. Some of them have too large name to be displayed on the screen (so their name looks like "blahblahblahbla..."), and the is very annoying to me. I realy need to see the whole maibox name. It could be easily solved in any other mail program - just drag the edge and enlarge the mailbox list area as much as you want. But in Mail.app this area is limited, and can not be enlarged as much as I would like. Even when I connect my macbook to a 27 inch monitor this space is still limited.

 

Could anyone explain, how can I  stretch the mailbox list field further to the right? Or can I type the mailbox name in 2 lines?

 

Please do not recommend changing sidebar iconsize - it doesn't solve the problem. I can see more of the mailbox name, but few words are still hidden after "...".

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    You're not dragging the edge.

    Chill out. No one is saying anything about stupid. It drags to a point which can give you 43 characters ± on my 15" MBP. So you have a mailbox with more characters?

    "It could be easily solved in any other mail program"

     

    Then that's your answer.

    It's not a strange issue. It's your issue. Create a file on your desktop and give the name of the mailbox. You wont see the entire name of the file. Even a file name has limited characters.

     

    So you also have an option of appreviating the name of the mailbox.
