           Summary: "Total Messages" column is stuck to the right-most
                    side of its panel
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.7.10
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Folder List
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: alb348 at gmail.com

The "Total message count" column in the folders panel is currently stuck to the
right-most side of its panel, and cannot be moved to the left. 
This is a problem when the Small Screen Option is selected, because the other
two columns are located just next to the folder's name, while the 'Total'
column stays far away at the right. This is esthetically unpleasant.
Now, if one chose to move the other two columns to the right, to eliminate the
gap between the columns, this would also be a problem, because a considerable
gap would be created between the folder names and the message count columns.
This gap would be huge on large screens, making it inconvenient to rad the
message count after reading the folders name; that is because folders names are
at the left side of the screen and message counts at the rightmost side. It
would be nice to have them all one next to the other. 
Please consider that, while the option "Small Screen" (which is probably a
misnomer) was originally meant for small screens, it can be profitably used on
large screens too. The only glitch is the one I pointed out: the locked
position of the Total messages column.

Please allow the user to move freely to the left the position of the Total
message column.

Please also consider renaming the "Small Screen" layout to "Single Pane"
