I just setup my wife’s her new desk with a Mac mini M1 running Big Sur.
She complains that the list preview is only showing the name and subject.
Changing the preferences to more lines doesn’t work, I checked on my iMac running Big Sur and noticed the same problem.
I rebuild the Mail database, eradicated every plist related to Mail to no avail.
Is this a common bug? Did anyone here fix it is so how ?
Is this occurring on every message? I read on macrumors.com that mail.app sometimes shows odd behavior in previewing HTML messages. You could test this by setting your mail client to compose in plain text and sending her a message.
“This is not a bug in any way. Many email senders (usually mass mailers, ads, corporate info) will put a plain text message at the head of the webpage specifically for the purpose of seeing it in preview.”
