Div resize TOP <Middle Resize> BOTTOM

See the attached code.

I'm having an issue getting the right div to allow the inside divs to resize.

It will resize, but I want the top to not exceed its outer div
and
The bottom div not to exceed its bottom.

The top one will list the messages, and the bottom will be a preview of the message.
[Messages]
<resize>

Here is a link, to how it should look. The problem is the resizing of the right divs, Grab the red bar in the middle to move it.
