There was a time when Geary email client supported viewing emails in three panes. Now, I notice that (since release 40?) there are only two panes on display, the accounts pane, and the received mail list. When select an message, it takes you to a different screen to read the email. I've checked the preferences and there appears to be no way to change the view to three panes.
To be honest, I find this new layout a bit awkward, somewhat cumbersome, and a bit annoying for the simple reason that after reading a message, I have to select a "back" function to return to the mail list and then select the next mail. With the three pane view, having read a message, I simply select the next one.
Has anyone else experienced this issue and do you find it a tad annoying?
