Can somebody post a screenshot of this display? Would this be something a MacBook Pro user would benefit from; I'm not interested in risking something as vital as email to 'test' a patch if it has no real good use for me.

Hi. I'm the developer of the plugin.

Most people with MBP-sized screens (1440 wide) seem pretty happy with it. At MacBook or older TiBook resolutions (1280), reaction is more mixed, with a majority against it.

When I get some free time in the next couple of weeks, I'll look at developing an improved version that can show subjects on a second line. This initial version was a one-hour hack -- I really didn't anticipate that it'd become so widespread so quickly :).

I use this plugin now happly on my TIbook at 1280x854

I used the scale factor hint from a while back to adjust the window size.
This command will reduce the size of mail by 25%
defaults write com.apple.mail AppleDisplayScaleFactor -string "0.75"
Here is a screen shot.

Note that if you like to see the icons at the top of the window, they will be messed up.

I really like the plugin. Amazing work!

However, on an aesthetic point of view, could tou make the light grey vertical space between the message and preview column 1 pixel wide?
It's now a approx. 10 px wide, color #e1e1e1, I would like to see it 1 px and color #939393, just like the divider between the mailboxes and the message columns.

Regards.

Seems logical, except that at 1 pixel it would be hard to grab to adjust width without hitting the scrollbar, unless he put a "grabber" area above the scroll bar.
