Windows 7: Live Mail - Can't See Inbox (List of Emails)

Live Mail - Can't See Inbox (List of Emails)

OK this is strange. I opened WLM this morning and all was fine, my emails downloaded and I could see my inbox. All of a sudden though my inbox went away and the inbox window only shows the last email in my inbox...when I click on any of my folders, no list of emails appear and instead the last email in the folder shows on the screen...I went to View --> Show --> All Messages and that is properly selected but I can't see my list of emails in my inbox or any folder anymore.

This seems like a bug? I definitely didn't select any menu item, just open the program up this morning, all was fine, but then this occurred. Any help would be appreciated.


I had accidentally dragged the preview pane to the top of the window. Sorry.

Same thing has happened to me, but I don't know how to get out of the preview pane, if that's the problem. How did you do it?

Put your cursor in the main inbox window and move your cursor near the top of the window...the cursor should change to a double up and down arrow. Click and hold and drag the pane lower.

Hope this helps.
