I went ahead and tried hiding the client a la deck layout when its height is getting too small. It doesn't work. Are there any other ideas? I could just add another if line to setsmfact, which will set smfact's limit even lower when there is more than 30 clients.

I tried disabling html email, but I can't find anything in the settings. I'll do a search later today to see if I missed something. Sorry guys!
