The reading/message pane of the Thunderbird is at the bottom of the email list. When I click on any email, the email opens at the bottom of the email list. How can I change the position of the reading pane so that all three panes (Folder pane, message list pane, and message pane) are side-by-side i.e. in vertical position?

3. Click the Layout and choose a layout. Choose the Vertical view to place all three panes side-by-side.

  • In Classic view, the folder pane runs the entire height of the window.
  • In Wide view, the message pane spans across the width of both the folder pane and the message list pane.
  • In Vertical view, all three panes are side-by-side.
