            Bug ID: 4192
           Summary: Make "Subject" (or provide option to configure) a
                    stretchable column
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: GIT
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Message List
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: removed-gdpr at example.com

Currently maximizing the window of CM in Standard, Wide message and Wide
message list views preserves all columns widtsh of the Message list except the
last one which gets stretched to fill the UI.

This is a waste of space because the last column usually is least significant
and short info (e.g. Date or Size) and it receives a lot of unneeded space, yet
the Subject, being usually the longest one, remains trimmed because of its
fixed width.

It would be much better to either:

- keep the last column fixed and stretch the Subject column instead. Then if
there are many messages with lenghthy subjects (as it is quite often the case
with RSS) one can quickly toggle maximization of the window to view them. This
can be very useful on large/wide screens where one doesn't keep Claws maximized
all the time.

- or provide preference to configure which column one wants to have
