I want to be able to pop compose into a new window

I want to be able to write an email and still be able to navigate around and use my inbox.

    This feature is a MUST, considering that how often I am composing/replying an email AND need to find some relevant threads from my inbox.

    This is also the single reason that I decide to switch back to the original UI, for now.

    Yes. This is pretty needed. And I can't open individual messages in their own window either. Sometimes I need to focus on the content of a single message and the rest of the Outlook UI takes up too much real estate.

    This is practically a requirement for a positive accessible experience. Many screen readers do not do well with RTE editors in line with static content on a page - It's much more simple for the user to have a new window specifically for composing.
