Hi all,

is there any way around the tree view of Windows Mail or Live Mail, when navigating the message folders? Whenever a new mail is received, Windows Mail wants to be clever, and puts me directly in the message list, making navigating the whole folder structure nearly impossible. Does Microsoft provide an alternative for this, or any hidden option to tweak this setting?

And don't tell me to use Thunderbird or other products ;-)
This is for a friend, who is not knowledgeable about Computers and installation procedures.
