First email hidden under banner


I’ve noticed randomly that the first email in the list will be hidden behind the top banner. I’ve been able to fix this by turning off the “Reading Panel” under “View” and turning it back on.

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Expected Behavior

I should be able to see all emails at all times, there shouldn’t be any hidden under under the navbar.



  • OS and Version: Window 10 21H2 Version: 10.0.19044 Build 19044
    • Installation Method: installer (MailspringSetup.exe)
  • Mailspring Version: 1.10.1-b2e69c4b (Current Latest)

Additional Context

Confirmed here, in vertical reading pane mode. In particular, you get an email notification but you can’t find the email in the account inbox because it’s underneath the top banner. Only by clicking on the top message (actually the second message) and pressing the up arrow key can you navigate to the actual first message. There’s only a tiny bar a few pixels high to indicate the selected message is off the top of the screen underneath the banner.
