Gmail formatting in Internet Explorer 9

Experiencing the following Gmail formatting issue in Internet Explorer 9?

The problem is caused by IE9's compatibility mode feature, turning this off resolves the issue. You might not find the IE9 compatibility mode icon in the address bar though for some reason (in my case anyway) - here's a quick fix;
  • In IE9, while logged into your Gmail maibox, hit F12
  • Choose Browser Mode: IE9 on the bottom toolbar
  • Choose Internet Explorer 9
Voila - you should now be seeing your mailbox with the formatting corrected;
