    This new e-mail is a joke.
    Fire the idiot who designed this ****.
    I'm looking for a new email.

    The find emails, etc. bar is enormously huge, as well as the wasted space next to it. It could be half that height. The horizontal settings, contacts, calendar, etc. could be put right to the side of the search bar. The archive, move, delete and spam bar is just as bad as the search bar and could be half the height. All these combined make the preview area too small. I like the new look of the folders column on the left, but it's only a facelift. Nothing new here. Do not like one bit. Am switching back.

    TOO MUCH SPACE. if you get more that 2 emails a day you will spend all day looking for particular messages.

    Too much space used by navigation bars (top and right), and advertising on the left feels a lot more visible and annoying.
    List of emails on top, reading pane on the bottom. Very little room properly used. I keep scrolling!

    loose the big bar with the oversized search bar and let me have what I really want; more mail space.

    Too much ad space. Not enough space for reading email. No way to adjust size. All the ads slow down speed. SAD!

    message area is too narrow. Other unimportant control buttons dominate too much useful space.

    Space management is critical, but it is obvious that different users have opposite suggestions. There should be no "one size fits all" approach. Big difference in the spacing needs from PCs to Hand-held devices. Don't force that same spacing on all. I see no need for the views section, but some do. Let me move it down AFTER folders and let others keep it above folders.

    Space utilization is not smart enough. Search bar at the top is too too big, it eat ups more space than required.

    Please remove the constant Facebook advertisement that limits the space for emails.

    Reduce the ize of the boxes above the emails ... ridiculously wasted space with little content. Thank you.

    The top banner (with logo and search box) is way too big and takes up too much screen real estate. It's also distracting; make it smaller.

    While you're at it, can you give us more colour options please, including the original email colour (whatever it was).

    I, like about 18% of men, am colour blind. Some colours really scream out at me....like the light blue one you've chosen for the banner.

    Thanks.

    This is not friendly to sight impared users especially when printing documents. The fonts are way too small and the rest o f the paper is wasted. Also I can do without the side bar when documents are printed, they're not relevant to the message.

    When I zoom out to 150% I found the settings in the top right. I was able to reduce the wasted space between email headings. But there is still way too much wasted space at the top and the left. The search box is unnecessarily tall, and there is still too much blank space. Since I have to zoom in so far, why not put the extra things from the right, at the top, in the blank space.
