Yes, the desktop has 2 23" monitors of its own. You just can't have
too much screen space...  Or maybe it is just that I'm not organized
and I like to leave windows open.  Or cached efficiently, the way I
think of it.

You must not have the same version.  I get a 3-pane layout so it's not
a choice of list or message. In fact I think it is exactly the same
layout as the default in outlook 10, including the search box at the
top of the header list.

Gmail and current exchange versions aren't much like old-style
webmail.  There are still some slight differences like the
search-as-you-type in the outlook/tbird apps, where the web
counterparts wait until you finish, but multi-select, drag/drop and
other app-like operations work in the exchange web interface, and
gmail has a lot of configuration options about what to do next when
you delete, etc.
