5.2. Displaying E-Mails

By default, the content of the inbox is displayed. Other E-Mail folders can be opened from within the folder tree. In the E-Mail settings, you can define whether a notification sound is to be played for incoming E-Mails.

How to display an E-Mail:

  1. Open an E-Mail folder in the folder tree.

    When having selected the Inbox folder and if you are using categories, you can select a category.

  2. In order to select a layout, click on View in the toolbar. Enable an entry below Layout.

  3. To sort the E-Mail list, click on Sort by above the list. Enable an entry.

    Note: To reduce latency when loading the E-Mail list, only a certain percentage of the E-Mails in a folder will be loaded by the server if their number exceeds a defined limit. If browsing to the bottom of the list, the next part will be loaded.

    To combine all E-Mails of a conversation in a single list entry, enable the Conversations checkbox in Sort by.

  4. Click an E-Mail in the list. The content of the E-Mail will be displayed in the detail view.

    • If the E-Mail is part of a conversation, all E-Mails in the conversation are displayed one below the other. To open or close an E-Mail that is part of a conversation, click on a free area between the sender and the date of receipt.

      To open or close all E-Mails in the conversation, click the Open/close all messages icon on the upper right side of the detail view.

    • If the E-Mail includes a quote from a previous E-Mail, you can display the quote by clicking the Show quoted text icon .

    • When having selected Vertical, Compact or Horizontal from the View drop-down in the toolbar, you can open an E-Mail in a separate window by double-clicking on the E-Mail in the list.

    • When having selected List from the View drop-down in the toolbar, the display area contains a list of all E-Mails in the folder. If clicking on an E-Mail, the E-Mail's detail view is displayed. The following functions are available above the detail view, :

      • To open the list again, click on the Back button or icon.

      • To display the next E-Mail, click the View next icon.

      • To display the previous E-Mail, click the View previous icon.

    Note: Depending on the server configuration, the content of very big E-Mails might be displayed incompletely. In this case, you will receive an E-Mail with a link. In order to completely display the E-Mail, click on the link.
