Sure, it's not one of the others! :)
Basically many email apps (for years) have had a 'standard' layout of
folder list spanning the left-hand side, message list on the
top-right, msg view on the bottom-right. It's the original Claws
layout before other layouts were introduced. But your question was
rhetorical, I suppose.

To open a message in a separate window is a double-click.... always!

That's quite slanderous (or misjudged). You base this on your usage
of the touchpad or what???

It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me, 
but to a collector it is worth a fortune
