How to Show More eMails on iPhone Screen

A side effect of changing the Mail preview size can lead to many more emails being shown on screen without having to scroll. This is particularly helpful on the smaller screens of the iPhone and iPod touch and if you need to sort a lot of messages quickly:

  • Open “Settings” and tap on “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”
  • Under “Mail” tap on “Preview” and select either “1 Line”, or “None” to show the most emails (8 per screen)
  • Leave Settings and check Mail to see the difference

No Preview means you will only see the message subject and sender without a preview of the mail message body. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it can make it much easier to delete bulk messages and mark multiple emails as read when you have an inbox inundated with hoards of emails all day like many of us.
