How to Restore the Email Preview Pane in Thunderbird

April 30, 2011DavidThunderbird

When I browse through my emails in Thunderbird I like to be able to quickly scroll through previews of the messages.  But every one in a while the “email preview” disappears.

To get the email preview pane back in Thunderbird simply:

1. Go to View ->Layout ->Message Pane

and your email preview will be back.
