I use the Thunderbird email client. Sometimes I can't read the
messages in the Debian User Digest emails, because the pane showing

anyone knows how I can solve this, I'd appreciate it.
Join the support-thunderbird mailing-list at http://lists.mozilla.org
and try your question there. There is a 90% chance that the right
setting in <Profile>/chrome/userChrome.css will shrink the attachments
pane for you, e.g.
Thanks. I did as you said, and got the answer, which was, for the record:
"You may use this code
put this code in userChrome.css file ( your Thunderbird profile
folder >chrome>userChrome.css )
/* Attachment pane at bottom of message window */
height: auto !important;
min-height: 90px !important;
overflow: auto !important; }
you may change 90px to any other suitable value."
I had to create the chrome directory in the suitable spot, that being
"/home/mark/.mozilla-thunderbird/utzhav93.default/chrome", and then
create the userChrome.css file. It works quite well. The attachment
pane listing is now reasonably sized, and comes with a sliding bar when
the listings cannot all be included in the space allotted for viewing.
