A Mail app for Mac acts as one shelter to sync the mails from all other email accounts without visiting specific websites. For instance, you can sync emails from Gmail, Outlook, etc, and view them in the Mail app.

Sometimes, the applications are likely to bring up errors that are complex to fix, or you just don’t know what to do. Talking about a macOS with the Mojave version, what if you can’t switch to the regular layout?

The issue has been brought up by a lot of people that changing to the classic layout didn’t help either. (Mojave has the classic layout, not Catalina. Keep away the confusion)

Can’t Switch Back to the Mac’s Older Mail App Layout? Here’s the Fix

The issue as reported is that the Mail app is previewing only two windows consisting of a list of mailboxes and a list of messages. What about the third column that includes previews of mail messages? Don’t worry; you’ve got it! All you need to do is drag the right edge of the mail preview window, and the third column will appear.

Didn’t work, right? You must have tried getting back to the classic layout but failed.

How did the Mail app Change from Mojave to Catalina?

While using the Mail app in macOS Mojave, you must have come across the option for classic layout in the Mail’s viewing preferences. The same is unavailable in macOS Catalina. However, you can switch to the classic layout by making a few changes in the ‘View’ menu.

As you all know, the Mail app has a three-column view: mailboxes, a message list, and mail message preview. Catalina lets you view or hide the column on the right with the help of ‘Show Side Preview’ under the ‘View’ tab. Else, you can hide the preview window by dragging the divider between the message list and preview to the right edge. Now, the fix we’re going to talk about is the divider getting stuck to the right edge.

Have you encountered the same problem? The pointer’s appearance changes as if it’s ready to drag to get back the preview window. Instead, the action can not be performed.

Follow the instructions mentioned below to quickly fix the layout error appearing with the Mail app.

  1. If the Mail app is running, click on the Mail tab on the top of the window.
  2. A drop-down menu will appear. Select ‘Quit Mail’ from the list.
  3. Next, switch to the ‘Finder’ window.
  4. Click on the ‘Go’ menu in the menu bar.
  5. Select ‘Library’ from the drop-down menu.
  6. Open the ‘Containers’ folder.
  7. You’ll see a ‘’ folder in the window. Drag the same to the Desktop screen.
  8. The last and final step is relaunching the Mail app.

Once you follow all the steps carefully, the three-column view will return, and the Mail app will function just as usual. You can delete the ‘’ folder from the Desktop after you get what you wanted.

Note: The Mail app will display in the default view. However, you can make changes to the same to reset the application..

Repeat the operation with the icon WineBottler and start this last program from the application mentioned above. to do this, right-click the relative icon.

At this point, place a check mark next to one of the following items, depending on the operation you're about to perform.

Choose the item run file (installer) if the program you're about to run is an installation exe file.

Choose the item copy file (Program) to application package if, instead, it's a single executable file that doesn't need anything else (independent).

Choose the item Copy the file (Program) and all files in the folder to the application Package if the program to be executed needs the files contained in the folder in which it's located (for example, portable files or unpacked programs).

    Your Mac device is crashing most of the time? Did you observe frequent fan noise or battery problem? Your Mac device might be facing an issue. For fixing it, you need to go through this blog carefully. Some simple and useful solutions have been mentioned in this blog.

    Random restarts

    1. Remove the peripherals, which may be creating the problem. For instance, if your device restarts the time the webcam of yours is plugged in, then do use your device without it for some span of time and then note the difference.
    2. See that sufficient space is available or not. For creating more space, you need to remove some of the items from your device.
    3. Go for running memtest86 for testing the device storage. You require making one bootable USB flash drive and then test the device storage of yours outside the Mac operating system surrounding. If you search for any problem related to RAM, you can change it wherever it can be done.
    4. Go for running the Apple Diagnostic. For doing it, you need to do a long press on the D button the time you boot your Mac device of yours. Note that if any hardware problem present.

    Freezes and Application crashing

    1. Free up disk storage. Create some space in your Mac operating system. You require having a minimum of 10 GB available storage on the hard drive of yours for letting the Mac operating system perform housekeeping duties. Remove unnecessary items for creating some storage on the Mac device of yours.
    2. Go for running memtest86 for knowing the device’s memory to detect the problems. Even you can do a long press on the D button the time your Mac device boots for running Apple Diagnostics as well as scan for the rest of the hardware problems.
    3. Install the Mac operating system again. This action clears up the software problems as well as creates a lot of storing space.
    4. Remove resource-intensive applications. If you think that problems are made by old hardware, remove applications such as Chrome to go for lighter weight options such as Safari. Prefer using SimpleNote as well as GIMP rather than Evernote or Photoshop.

    Fast battery drain

    1. See the health of your device battery. Generally, the reason behind the bad battery life is the bad condition of it. The best thing is, the Mac operating system describes the condition of the battery, such as it does tell the number of charges as well as discharge cycles it has gone through. Side by side, it also tells if there is a need for changing it.
    2. Go for resetting the ‘System Management Controller.’ Even after the good condition of your battery, there are any power issues present, then you can reset the SMC. For instance, your Mac device stops charging.

    Mac not booting properly

    See the cables. Check that all the plugs are well connected as well as ensure the socket switch is turned on if present.
