  2. Fixing It

    My Idea is for you to put it back the way it was before you went f%ked it all up how do you work an email system that doesn't let you just scroll through your emails no you fricken idiots make it pages how does a person go through large amounts of email page by page when you check boxes and try to keep going to the next page the boxes you checked on the first page get unchecked do you see the stupidity in that before you go an change things why not ask people what they want

  4. Please for the love of all things, go back to the font/format you used before!

    Yesterday as I went to check my email I was hoping it was just a bad dream and that today when I checked it, it would be back to normal I would be able to actually READ who the email was from, the subject AND the actual email but I was very disappointed to see that it's still the same ****! When you have a c looking like an o and a i looking like a l, that is about the dumbest font you can pick! Let US pick what font/size and all that for our inbox. I get that…

  6. Update is ****

    Just for the record, your latest update stinks. I liked my dark forest background. I hate having to scroll up in order to delete. The escape key doesn't close a box. I haven't checked on tabs, but I bet they're screwed up, too. Please, I want my old email format back!

  8. I was wondering if there was a way to add read verification.

    I was wondering if there was a way to add read verification. Therefore, you would know if some indeed received your email and open it to read to possibly read it. And some kind of indicator on your sent email indicates that it was open to be read, like green check mark in subject bar.
