This might be the wrong forum, but I'll ask anyway. I set up Apple mail and don't like the display, compared to gmail (in Chrome/Safari).

I like the table layout where I don't see any specific email content until I select the specific email.

Like this enter image description here

The closest I can come in Mac mail is this below, but it still shows each emails content. I know I can slide the window up and down from dragging the dot in between, but that's not what I want.

Is this possible in Mac mail? enter image description here

No, Apple Mail has only classic layout on or off mode.

You can compensate it by turning off the classic layout, making the mail list super wide & use double click to open a mail window & close it with the shortcut.

  • Mojave: Mail → Preferences → Viewing → Use classic layout checkbox.

  • Catalina: Show the message list in column layout: Choose View > Use Column Layout (a tick indicates the layout is in use).

However, if you're looking for alternatives, Edison Mail's GUI is heavily influenced by Gmail's web version. (That was one of the reasons I deleted it.)

  • @user1186050 I haven't used it. Neither do they show it in the app screenshots on the App Store.
