i dont understand this "this is how it works now, get used to it" mentality. theres a button right there to pop out the window. why not just code in an option to do that for every message. I love the rest of the look, search, ect, but ive used separate windows for AGES. Its the MAIN reason I use outlook over the Gmail web interface my company wants me to use that I convinced them to let me continue to use outlook because of this exact feature (working on multiple emails at once).Bruce butkus commented
I dont like that in the new outlook, the Gmail account has the reply in the same window as the read. the entire reason Ive kept outlook (my office wants me to use the web interface gmail) is that I can compose and see my response in seperate windows. I can compose and read new incoming emails and not 'lose' my composition.
