Screenshot showing popup menu with a simple option to switch to list view - I
could not find a similar way back after selecting this entry.
If I didn't miss any obvious option, it's very easy to switch the "preferred
folders" area from icon view to list view by just right-clicking the area and
chosing the appropriate option.
However, once list view is activated, it does not have a general "preferred
folder area" right-click popup-menu any more, only the list entries have
specific popup menus which (obviously) do not offer any functionality which
works on the whole area.
So the only option I found to get back was to open the kMail settings dialog
and search for the corresponding option buried in some of the settins tabs.
This is not obvious and in any case very asymmetric behaviour. If I try such an
option, I expect to get back again to the previous state just as easily...
