  1. I lost all my customized email filters coming to the new version. And had to redo all of them all.

    Move the user's customized settings from Classic to New version. I lost all my previously setup email address filter to what folders during the switch.

  2. Message area background

    Also the message layout background is too bright. The old Classic version provides less message layout bright background. It would be nice to be able to just adjust that one area. Yes you can change the overall theme to a darker mode. But then it's all or none.

  7. Get rid of the little box that pops up telling you what you just did. "You just deleted 10 files" , yeah, I know I just deleted ten files...

    Get rid of the little box that pops up telling you what you just did. "You just deleted 10 files" , yeah, I know I just deleted ten files...I don't need to be told by a box that comes uo and just sits there so I have to close it, what a pain in the azz. At least give an option the not have it pop up. The old version was fine there was no need to force upgrade on everyone.

  9. contrast

    The biggest problems I'm having with the new mail is the contrast. It is very poor. Before it was so easy to see which email had been looked at and which one had not.

    This problem carries on into the emails themselves. When looking at a list in an email, I could pick one choice and click on it and easily tell which link had last been clicked. Can no longer tell with the new mail. There is no highlighting over the last link clicked.

    Finally, the email message all seems squished together without enough separation between lines.

    For these…

  10. Where is the attachments icon on mail?

    What happened to the attachments icon on inbox mail? I used to be able to easily delete memory-hogging email by ID'ing those first.

  12. What the heck with the drafts? I can't tell if a draft sent and there are multiple drafts and I didn't save them as drafts. This is annoying

    I send an email and it says it's a draft? Then there's 12 drafts and I can't tell if it sent or not and there's no way to SEND A DRAFT and I need to send this cockadoodie email! Come on! This is CRAZY.

  16. New Mail broken in Edge browser

    Cannot delete mail either by check-box in Inbox or by the trash icon above the message. Cannot revert to previous version because the settings icon (gear wheel) is non-responsive (ie. no menu appears). I can navigate from a message back to the Inbox folder index.

  18. Provide ability to modify display of items in the left Nav Bar (e.g. "Views")

    1) The "Views" section in the left navigation bar is not very useful. Unfortunately, my folders - which I use ALL the time - are bumped to the bottom of the navigation bar and I have to scroll each time I want to look at a folder. Even if I "hide" the Views section to limit the impact, it reopens every time I come back to the main screen.

    2) The navigation at the top left - Starred, Archive, etc - there should be a way to only show the ones you want. I won't ever use Starred or Archive…

  19. Regulate your Ad Bandwidth - Allow display environments that optimize certain functions

    Forcing everyone to use the same interface is a bit lame in 2017. Forcing everyone to try a beta is ridiculous. Provide a display environment that can be selected, like websites use full function themes. I would suggest 1) Hotkey friendly, Rapid Refresh and Visual Comfort Styles should be choices in any theme or themes themselves 2) Basic Message Viewer and Response with rules/folders 3) Social Concierge for people who like a full force online experience.
    Having the choice for silent/still ads would be useful for a major portion of the population that are agitated by them. Your beta hangs…
