    I am new to Apple, new MacBook Air. Working with Apple's Mail service and I am trying to change it so that the incoming emails are just displayed as one liners, so it is just the senders name and subject only. I am an Outlook user previously. Sorry...I couldn't find this in Google. Thanks for your help.

    Are you talking about (the application that is on your computer) or iCloud webmail (that you access through a web browser)?

    I am talking about the mail that is opened by clicking on the stamp with the bird in it at the bottom of the screen. Sorry..kind of clueless. Also, if I import my email from Outlook via Thunderbird to Apple's Mail, is my mail imported into my computer or imported into the web/web based?

    Clink on Mail in the task bar, go to preferences, select viewing and than list preview: none

    And you are done.
