Flagged emails are hard to see and not immediately apparent
The new UI is hideous, was there any user input at all!
The new flag icon is nearly invisible making it extremely difficult to quickly, visually, scan for flags in a long list (note filtering on flags IS NOT the solution, the long list view of everything is essential).
Expectation: immediate rollback of the new UI, and significant outreach to the users who are forced to use this substandard product.

Flagged items impossible to see - all the icons in that column are too small and too light in colour
When viewing a message preview and using dark theme, you cant see which message (conversation grouping) is flagged.
The flags are too difficult to see. They don't stand out enough, making it almost pointless to flag anything.

Flagged items are hard to see and I would like to be able to add a note as to why the email has been flagged so it appears when the email is opened a second time.
I think that at least the outline of the flag should be a bit darker, or even filled in like it was before. I know that the messages are tinged yellow, but when scrolling fast it's quite difficult to see the flagged messages.
In the "old days" there used to be a *clear, solid red flag* for flagged messages. And when you clicked the flag again, it changed to a *clear, solid green checkmark*.
This made navigating and discerning between flagged, completed and unread emails SO much easier.
Over time, you have removed the easy to see colors and now it looks like even the functionality to change a flag to checked is gone??
The outlined red flag is VERY difficult to see.
I don't understand the logic behind removing the clarify and helpfulness of this function. Please explain or just make it better again!!
It's really hard to tell the difference between new, flagged, and old emails. I keep missing new emails.
too hard to read. nothing sticks out anymore and it's all blended together and blah. the flags should stick out, pinned messages should be bright, and the calendar should be easy to navigate.
The new outlined flag icon defeats its own purpose. It is too difficult to see, please make it a solid flag.
It is too difficult to tell which emails are new. Also, it is too difficult to tell which emails have flags, which are my priority emails. The initials of the email senders are so big, they distract from the other information in the emails. They don't need to be that big. Sometimes, design that is simple is better. No jazz hands needed.
Make the flagged email icon much more destinctive.
