Show or hide the main toolbar in Mac Mail

When you are inside Mac Mail, the main toolbar will by default be visible, which is also the case in the new email window; if you are using keyboard shortcuts anyway, or accessing common commands from the menu system, toolbars just take up space (although they do add a pleasing touch of color to your email program). In this tutorial, we will show you how to show or hide the email toolbar in Apple Mail.

Toggle the Mail toolbar visibility On or Off

This is all you need to do to show or hide the main toolbar in Apple Mail on Mac OS X; note that this is a "persistent" setting, meaning that Mac Mail will remember your last preference after you've applied it, even after you restart the program.

Tip: it is also possible to achieve the same effect by clicking on the View menu, and choosing "Show Toolbar" / "Hide Toolbar", as appropriate (the same menu item reads one version or the other, depending on your current visibility of your main toolbar in the email program).
