Display error when viewing header with large recipient list

Reported by Steve H | June 20th, 2011 @ 06:26 PM

I've noticed a problem with 1.2 (2204) when displaying headers with messages that have very large numbers of recipients. This is repeatable here.

Typically I have the application window open in widescreen mode with no threading and the toolbar hidden. When I do this the centre pane showing the messages is as shown below.

![Normal email list(http://img.skitch.com/20110620-ed8ip8ar66b4u4wb9phfunq8qn.png "Normal email list")

When I click the disclosure triangle to view headers this pane moves down a row (leaving a blank area) and the messages are not visible.

![Blank email list(http://img.skitch.com/20110620-gfsnc3x4kaqjp8345yyhamy1kq.png "Email list blank and moved down")

Similarly the message window is also blank and moved down.

![Blank message pane(http://img.skitch.com/20110620-gfsnc3x4kaqjp8345yyhamy1kq.png "Messages list blank and moved down")

This blank area above the three panes stays until the app is restarted. It's possible to switch back to the folder with the blank panes to refresh them but it's not possible to scroll through the long header if it fills the window.

Hope this description is clear.

    It is a known problem (but no existing ticket for it). The long term plan is to move the headers into the message view and then retire the special headers view, but I'll see if I can easily make some temporary solution to avoid this visual problem.

    I've put in a limit to only display 30 recipients and a count of the remaining ones. The only way to see the other recipients is to show the raw message.
