    Default Move Reading Pane?

    Is it not possible to move the reading pane in Zimbra? I've just started looking at it, but this would be a show-stopper for me. I find it horrifically inefficient given that most modern monitors are widescreen. I don't want to read my e-mail in lines that are 24" across. Instead, let me have the list of e-mails in one vertical column and the e-mail itself over to one side. Is this not possible?

    Also, while I prefer a conversation view, in that view why does clicking on an e-mail then cover up all the other e-mails so that it takes me two clicks to look at a different e-mail? Is there a bug on that I can vote for? As I click on different e-mails in a conversation, the given e-mail should just appear to the side without covering up the vertical e-mail list. I cannot believe people would prefer all this extra clicking.

    Welcome to the forums,

    Bug 14863 - Three pane view - Vertical (preview pane right)
    and you might also be interested in:
    Bug 450 - Preview Pane on Conversation: 4 pane view

    Your 2nd question stems from threading; this view has gone back and forth from being a separate view called hybrid to enhancement of the conversation view. (see below pic)
    Check out Zimbra Desktop(alpha) or if your an administrator/can run your own box try out 5.0beta2, to see them in action.

    That's exactly why I introduced the "hybrid" conversation view. I was also tired of going back and forth to view a different conversation. Available in 5.0 when it's released and in the SVN repository now.
