    Hey all, been a while for me, thanks in advance for the advice.

    Problem: I until very recently read my e-mail in a box on Mail that appeared under the the lists of e-mail in my mailbox. I could then select another email and the box would show that e-mail. Now the box is gone (not sure what happened) and all I see if a long list of emails in my mailbox. I can read them when I double click on them (it opens up a new window), but I would like to go back to the way it used to be. I hope that made sense. I have tried a few of the settings under File, Edit and View in Mail but can't seem to figure it out.
    I wanted to take a screen shot but don't remember how to do that either.

    You need to turn on 3-pane view. At the bottom of the inbox list of emails there is a border. You can drag that border up, and it will display the email as you like.
