Mountain Lion Mail – Classic View

With Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, Apple’s Mail program was radically updated in appearance. You may notice in Lion and Mountain Lion how much Mail looks like it’s iPad and iPhone counterpart. Personally, I prefer the new look, but I am often asked if it’s possible to restore the old appearance.

In Mail, open Preferences, then select the Viewing tab, and check the box labeled “Use Classic Layout.”

Now, even in Mountain Lion, your mail uses the same view style as Snow Leopard.
