@scojjac @tullera Have you tried that? It’s really nowhere close to what we had before?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to scojjac

@tullera Yes, that’s what I’m using. It loses most of the columns, column re-ordering, resizing, and single-click sorting.

Really missing the message list table view in Mail. What’s the point of removing columns, reordering, and click-to-sort?

@lapcatsoftware Yes, but even my formerly closed bugs say that.

@lapcatsoftware I just got one of these, and they really did fix it in 10.15.
