Messages always open in tabs

Reported by Martin McCallion | September 8th, 2017 @ 06:40 PM


Since the latest update (Version 1.9.7 (5412)) messages open in tabs when I double-click on them, instead of in a new window as they always did before. I prefer the old behaviour, but can't find a setting to switch it back.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    MailMate now respects the setting in the Dock preferences pane in System Settings. The one named “Prefer tabs when opening documents [...]”. Try changing that.

    Let me know if that does not help.

    Thanks, that's fixed it right enough. Problem then is that there might be other applications wherein I want to have documents open in tabs, though frankly I can't think of one right now. Still, given the vast quantity of MailMate's settings, I'm surprised there isn't one to override this behaviour.

    But thanks again for your help.

    Yeah, I'm probably just waiting for someone to request an override. In any case, the whole window handling system in MailMate could use a re-write to be more system friendly.

    It would be nice to be able to create new messages and reply if MailMate opened a new window instead of a tab even if "prefer tabs when opening documents" is set to "Always" (same behavior like in Apple's built-in Mail app). Thanks.

    I'm requesting an override here. :-)
