Using last OS X Lion, I was using Mail.app, classic view, so there was always a preview for each message. This has now dissapeared, how can I solve this?

  • With classic view, you mean you use Preferences>Viewing>Use classic layout? The preview view may be minimized, is there a separator at the bottom of the window which you could drag? Could you add a screenshot of Mail.app? – jaume Mar 22 '13 at 7:36

  • Great it worked, I added an answer, take a look at it and accept it if you think it correctly describes how to solve your issue. Thanks! – jaume Mar 22 '13 at 9:14
  • of course, don now! – Open the way Mar 22 '13 at 9:51

Classic view is the view set in Preferences>Viewing>Use classic layout:

In this view, the message preview area is located below the message list.

The view may be minimized:

Just drag the separator at the bottom of the window to show the message area.
