I hate the new auto-complete sentence thing you have added to emails. I can understand that you are trying to help people compose emails faster by trying to fill in the next word you think they are going to say. However, I hate this function. I have ADHD, so having random words pop up in the space where I am going to write my next word is very distracting and causes me to forget what I was actually trying to say in my email. It is so distracting and annoying that I am debating on closing my eyes when I type an email and opening them at the very end to correct any typos I may have written. This function is not helping me write emails faster, it is actually slowing me down. After becoming completely frustrated while writing an email to a professor, I decided to turn the stupid auto-complete things off. I searched through the settings and could not find a way to turn it off. Either you have not made a way to turn it off because you think it is great and believe that everyone will be overjoyed to have this added to their email or it is so difficult to find that no one will ever be able to turn it off even if they desperately want to. My suggestion: allow people to turn it off and make sure they know they can turn it off!
