Big White space appearing above inbox and is quite irritating
Its seem like a bug to me
Kelly McCullough commented
This is also happening in Outlook 365 and is a waste of vertical space. It would seem you could combine the 'All Unread and By Date' and 'Search Current Mailbox' Searchbox all on the same 'line'.
absolutely maddening waste of space. Interface design 101 .... and they haven't fixed this now for over a YEAR !

The whole "arrange by" strip above the inbox is unnecessary, especially in "compact" mode. "All" "Unread" and "By Date" is should be removable, allowing only a single line for the search box. All of the sorting is already possible by clicking on the column headers. All this whitespace is wasted screen space.
