  1. Viewing emails

    I clicked "go back to original folder" in the "After moving a message" section of the settings, but after deleting/moving an email, but it always opens the next email. How do I stop this?

  2. scroll

    When scrolling down in Inbox to get to messages that are out of the screen, the preview link at the bottom left hides the very message that I'm trying to read. This is very annoying especially when scrolling with arrow keys, because once I get to the message I want, I can't see the sender because it's hidden by the preview link. The only way to see the sender is to scroll one more message down and then back up, which defeats the purpose of scrolling with arrow keys. Please, FIX THIS!!!! And please, don't tell me to switch to…

  3. Can't see bottom email when hovering on another email

    Can't see bottom email when hovering on another email. The bottom email is just to low and the little popup that you see when hovering on another place on the page makes it so you cannot see it. It's annoying, and should have been and still should be accounted for.

  6. Sorting bars above email messages

    Can we have sorting bars above the email messages? This way we can just click on the bar above the relevant column to sort (e.g. from, subject, date, etc) instead of clicking on a drop down menu to search for the sorting option.

    Also, if an email is selected and then the sorting option is clicked, that email message should remain selected. This helps with searching or browsing.
    For instance, if I select an email from "John" and I click on the sort by name bar, all emails from all Johns should be together; if I select an email whose…

  9. folder

    When I open an email in a folder, then close it, I'm tossed back to the inbox, instead of the folder I opened the message from. This makes looking through messages to find anything ... irksome.

  11. Move, Sort and Resize Columns

    I want to be able to move, resize, and sort columns by clicking on them, just like pretty much every other mail program around. I want to move the "trash can" column to the left so I can get to it easily, without being asked "Do you really want to delete this?" like you are when you use the icon at the top. I want to click on the sender column and sort by that, so I can quickly find all messages by a certain sender. Please either bring this functionality, or revert to the old version. Thanks.

  15. go back to original place after closing email

    After a closing an email after reading it (this is in original email version, not the new one-although this appears to be an issue in the new email version also), the program returns the user back to the most current unread emails. This NEVER used to be the case. It is a terrible time waster.

  16. Next button

    I would prefer to have the old "Previous" and "Next" email button to show on the top right of the reading pane. It ease the process of skimming through a long list of emails sorted by date.

  18. Fantasy Sports Archive Why change the format

    I used to be able to easily go to my sports profile and access past seasons. This year the screen turns grey

  19. Put close all tabs link at the top of the tabs list

    Please put the Close All Tabs link at the TOP of the tabs list. When I want to close all tabs, that means I have many tabs open, so it's ridiculous to make me scroll to the bottom. Yes, I can "Up Arrow" my way to the bottom, but that's counterintuitive and an extra step.

  20. Why would you put 'archive' as the first choice in mail? Why not 'delete'? I don't want to 'archive' much of anything, but I do delete a lot

    Why would you put 'archive' as the first choice in mail? Why not 'delete'? I don't want to 'archive' much of anything, but I do delete a lot!

    I thought I clicked 'give feedback' - not vote on some post! Gaaahhhhh!
