Make unread messages more visible with bold face black color font
Instead of a light blue font for an unread message, just make the whole message a bold face font. It's easier to see what new messages you have. The current color scheme is too subtle.
Thanks for the feedback. In order to make your message list appear less cluttered, try the following ideas. Click on the gear in the top right hand corner, and turn off Attachment Previews, Sender Photos, and Message Preview text. Hope that helps!
Why do we want to make our message list less cluttered? The request here is to make unread email MORE visible. We don't want to achieve this by making other enitities LESS visible.
To me it doesn't sound that difficult to display unread emails in bold or any other color, much the same as already in use in OL2016.
function over fashion is always preferable - especially for the (lots of ) older folks using the tools.
