Description 9000 volts 2016-05-08 18:40:25 UTC
I just recently installed KDE Plasma 5 (including Kmail from kde-applications package) on arch linux. In KMail 5.2.0 (I could not select this version in the bug report due to it being missing), the Message List panel is missing, leaving me unable to view which messages are in a folder. I have attempted to use View -> Message List -> Create New Tab, but to no avail.

Currently the screen is divided in half horizontally, with the folder structure and favourite folders on the left and a large panel on the right describing this version of KMail.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Arch Linux (Latest Version)
2. Install XOrg, KDE, and kde-applications (includes KMail)
3. Attempt to use KMail

Actual Results:  
KMail worked but it is impossible to show the message list panel.

Expected Results:  
The software should have made it possible to view a list of messages in the selected folder.

Same with kmail 5.3 (neon dev stable):   

Reproduce:
fresh user, 1st kmail startup & 1st IMAP Accout setup ==>

No message view (and mail message view) is shown  (see screenshot) .

Changing folders does not help.

Workaround the 1st usage bug:  Menu: Go -> Next message  ==>
and the message list view and mail message view show up.

I would expect, that when one selects a folder on the left, the message list view and the mail message view are shown
