Abstract

Disclosed is a method to improve the display of preview of a message in an Email Client system. This is achieved by making the preview available On-Demand and improving the space utilization of the Email Client window by using the Navigator Space in a relatively efficient manner. The On-Demand feature refers to the display of the message preview only for the message which the user has chosen to view rather than for all the messages. Efficient space utilization is achieved by placing the pop-up\tooltip (containing the preview message) over the navigator space in the Email Client Window.
