  3. folder

    I would like to create folders as a subset of the INBOX (as I can do in Outlook). They should, at the very least, be immediately below the INBOX (rather than near the bottom of the page) because when using filters, mail goes directly into them.

    In the "settings" you need to put where we have a CHOICE as to WHICH SIDE we want the calendar, note pad, and all on because I not only just dislike but I do LOATH, DESPISE, AND HATE WITH A PASSION that the calendar and all are on the RIGHT rather than the LEFT!!!! GAG ME WITH A FREAKING STICK WHY DON'T YA!

  12. I would like to see all my comments,arranged from the newest to the oldest.

    After the first 10 or so comments, my old and new comments are all mixed up. In Malaysia, after the recent chage of government, it's important that our comments and suggestions are all seen by the new government ministers.

  19. Turning OFF READER VIEW for emails

    When reading my emails, the view automatically changes to "READER VIEW". This is a big time waster as I have to change back to the normal view in order to reply or click on any links in the email.

    How do I turn off this feature: Automatically switching to Reader View when reading emails?

  20. Need to Sort in descending order

    Years ago before you removed the sort arrows (which I still miss, I hate having to drag the scrollbar), we could sort any folder in both ascending (the default) and descending order at the click of a buttom. Why you ever removed such a useful feature I don't know but please bring it back. What makes you think that whatever we are looking for is always going to be in the top half of a long list of messages? Having to drag and drag the scrollbar to find the bottom is ridiculous. Bring back the ability to sort in descending…
