  1. Prompt me for a folder name when sending a message

    Now that Sent is properly a view instead of a folder, prompt me for a folder name when sending an email.

    Then I can find all email related to one thread in a single folder instead of having to check the folder and the Sent view.

    Make the prompt optional in Settings, of course.

  9. Folders in the Left Margin/Column

    Allow the user to "expand or enlarge" the left column where the folders are. You can not even "read" the folders well now.

  11. Not enough room on the 'Folder' side (left side) and no way to expand/contract. This would be very useful.

  14. It's doesn't report number of messages.

    It doesn't tell us how many messages we have, it just says "999+". What good is that? Just report the correct total, please.

  19. Get rid of videos in Spam Folder

    Get rid of those stupid, annoying, loud auto-play videos that occur whenever I empty my spam folder. Sometimes they play after I have moved on to the in box. No one watches them. They are just more, even annoying spam.
