Description (last modified by damato)

Have you tried to put the new two gadgets below the list. I think this would look much better. And it removes the danger of clicking the wrong gadget (e.g. want pop but do change filter-cycler). Please give it a try. I think the relation to the list is still there, even if it is under it. You want to copy thunderbird (I don't know it), and TB is the mailer of firefox, and FF e.g. has the search-string gadget below the HTML-area, too. Cool argument, huh? ;)

Even better would it be to place it inside the status bar. There is a lot of unused space in it which could be filled with that perfectly. That would also let both lists - folders and mails - have the same height again for aesthetical reasons. Furthermore the popup gadget to switch between different parts of the mail to be searched in should be replaced by a cycle gadget as for "View", too. Would look better and give the user information on what is search criteria atm. Both selections should be saved on exit automatically. Even if no search criteria is used the info "139 of 139 shown" shopuld be displayed.

After having thought about this enhancement I feel that it should be quite easy to support it by adding an option to the Look&Feel configuration in YAM. However, I object the arguments from 'treteimer' and it should not be moved to the status bar.
