Windows 10: Mail for Windows only showing part of incoming email message? Solved

    Mail for Windows only showing part of incoming email message?


    {I did post to the correct section but didn't receive a reply so far}
    Hi,
    Any idea why the contents of certain emails I receive in Windows Live Mail are displayed ok whereas the same email received via Mail for Windows 10 shows only in part, are aligned way to the right of the screen, and so cannot be viewed in full.
    Any work around?
    See attached pics.
    Thanks,
    Pete

    It has to do with the size of the preview pane. In WLM it is a full page and in Mail it is smaller.
    In Mail when an e-mail is open click on the 3 dots at top right and open Zoom and try a lower zoom level.

    You can also click on the hamburger icon at top left and it will collapse the left pane and give you a little more room.
