    I know I'm not technological but I'll try my best to explain. On my email page, I used to have maybe space for 20 emails listed and then a preview space below it so I wouldn't have to double click the email to see what was written. It was like a two window page one above the other. I did something and now that space is gone. I just have my list of emails (in all of my folders) and I now have to double click to see what was written.

    How do I restore that space back? Thanks. I use Snow Leopard.

    In your Mail window at the bottom should be a lightly tinted bar with a dot in the center. If you put your mouse curser there it will change to an arrow. Double click that spot. Also if you hover the curser above the spot it should display instructions.

    Hope this helps and doesn't confuse you more.

    Bingo! So somehow that bar was dragged to the bottom. I don't remember dragging anything!

    Thank you!!!

    You're welcome. Double clicking the bar moves it up or down depending on where it is.
