It appears less convenient. Facilities now inaccessible.
The new system appears less convenient to access old emails as the previous means to click on 'sent' and navigate through years is now redundant. The worse feature of the new design is that options at the top of the page are now inaccessible. As they are rendered pale (be it drafts or archive etc) instead of highlighted, they cannot be clicked on. To make the experience worse for users rather than more convenient is an odd development. It means I will use Yahoo less, not more and stick to Hotmail for correspondence.
