Thread: KDE4 Kmail ugly message list

    Default KDE4 Kmail ugly message list

    How can I get rid of this ugly new display in the message list. All these
    horizontal dividing bars with dates on are a pain.

    Sorry, but none of that changes the appearance of the message list. I'd also
    tried the buttons above the list to the right of the search bar but none had
    the effect I wanted, i.e., to return to the good old, uncluttered KDE3
    display.

    One of the displays I'm looking at now has 5 e-mails in the list and 9
    splitter bars. What a waste of space! Even when using "expand all groups"
    it's still cluttered.

    You may also want to check the small icon to the far right of the search
    bar. It is a Button to set the theme....set it to 'classic'.

    Select Aggregation mode and tick flat date view
    It is in the top right of your kmail gui
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    How did I miss that? I'd tried everything on the "view appearance" button
    and thought I'd tried likely candidates on "select aggregation mode" but
    just didn't see that one - or, to be correct, I saw it but didn't notice it.

    It's a bit like at the supermarket when I've searched everywhere for a
    particular item and when I finally find someone to ask where it is, they
    point to the shelf straight in front of me. I'd blame failing eyesight if
    this sort of thing hadn't happened regularly when I had good eyesight.

    Thanks for pointing in the right direction.
