  2. Sender images make it hard to select multiple emails

    When you have sender images enabled, it is difficult to manual select multiple emails as the image size is larger than the check box.

    When you then mouse over the image the checkbox appears but not to the same bounds as the image so it is very easy to not click on the checkbox.

    If you miss the checkbox then it opens the email and you lose your previously selected emails.

    This is very painful and needs to be changed so that if you click within the bounds of the image it will select that email.
    This needs to change

  6. Can't sign in.

    When I try sign in to my email account on my iMac using a Safari private window it just shows an error message that says "something went wrong" and a "refresh window" button which only recycles me back to the same error message.

  7. action buttons missing in Safari

    This is probably a known issue, but the action buttons (Reply, Delete, Archive, etc.) are non-existent in Safari. Also, I the feedback dropdown menu doesn't work.

  10. Read vs Unread emails

    read emails no longer change colour...why?
    I cannot tell which emails are read or unread anymore!!!!!@!@
    A bolded Name of the sender doesn't show up well unless i have the brightness jacked up and the blue light is on full. Later in the day/evening I have filters on to allow me to sleep at night. READ emails should be grey and not still bright white like UNREAD emails!!!!
    Jesus it drives us all nuts when y'all make these ridiculous changes!!!!!

  12. STINKS! NO SEARCH BAR!

    SUCKS! I have had MSN mail for 18 years, and you have REALLY messed it up now. There is no functionality in the search bar, no method of finding particular emails, and there is no way to block spammers. Why did you release something that wasn't ready?

  15. I can't see my current important mail! What a mess!!

    This new way of looking at the emails is so convoluted. I just want to see them in the order they came with no separations. Now I have important mail that I want to keep for records shoved at the top and I can't even see the new important mail.

  17. Can’t BBC group of e-mails!!!!

    Can’t blind copy a group of emails. Keeps saying “No results found”. I have just spent over an hour trying to send an important document. I ended up sending it on gmail no problem. Correct this problem!!

  18. Folders column

    Could you make the spaces between the folders in the left hand column narrower so that I can see all my folders together rather than having to scroll up/down?

  19. Low contrast

    Needs more color contrast and/or sharper boarders between Folders and Inbox.

    Overall colors and formatting make it harder to focus than previous version.
