Macro to resize columns in Mail

I'd like to have a macro that resizes columns in the Mail Inbox whenever I open Mail.

I have a large LG monitor connected to my MacBook Air. It seems that the Inbox window gets resized to fit the built-in display's dimensions when it sleeps and wakes. So when I wake it, the column widths are too narrow because the window itself is now wider. It's tedious to resize columns manually each time.

I don't know how to automate this, because I think it requires moving the mouse pointer to the space between column headers, which is visual.

Any ideas?

Hey Hal,

This sort of thing can be very difficult to impossible to get right...

Your options are basically:

  • Click (and drag) at found image.
  • AppleScript UI-Scripting
    • Find dimensions of given UI elements and use them to calculate click and drag positions.
