What you have is the Reading Pane. Click on View and then click Reading Pane and select OFF.

Also, not sure if you want single line like your original, or the milti-line view of the message list, but under View you can change that also.

Perhaps you did not try what I had suggested. Had you done that you would have got the view that you want. All that is required is to put the reading pane at the bottom.

Good luck.
