I really like the new cards view. But what I miss so much, is that there isn't ANY way to get the size of the message. I receive a good deal of email with (sometimes animated) inline screenshots that are quite large. I want to see this info so that I can decide if I delete the image when replying to make the message smaller.

This info can be anywhere. I don't mind getting it from a context menu. But I saw the new UI plans at and I see a few places where it can be displayed:

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

I would love to see this added as well. Either as an option on the actual listed "card" or somewhere else in the opened email.

W/o the ability to see the size of an email I'm afraid I have to revert to the old column view. 😞

Yes yes please! I can also not use the cards view without seeing the message size. Especially on my laptop it would mean so much more space for the message itself! I can't believe this isn't a show stopper for more folks. Other than that, 115.4+ has been super fast, stable and shiny.

I use this too. 
We can still sort by size, but without the ability to see the message sizes, its pretty useless.

Please, make this happen. I actually would like to select the data to be included in the card view, like we do in the table view. But message size is very useful.

I don’t know if the message pane is the best place for this, since it would probably not work on Thunderbird Conversations (whose UI, btw, could use an upgrade to look as awesome as the classic reader, but that's another story).

Thanks in advance. Keep up the good work!! ✌️
