I just wanted to comment on the new interface implemented just days ago. I
absolutely DO NOT like this new interface and it's so bad that I'm
considering taking my paid Live subscription to Google and abandoning this
baby-faced interface altogether.
I can not "Check for new messages" anymore and new messages sent to my
account aren't showing up with screen refreshes or whatever task I can think
of to try to wake it up to check for new email.
The really really dumb "Themes" are for kids.. Like Trix. The spacing of
the folders and messages reduces the number of folders and messages I can see
forcing me to scroll even more. It's cartoon like.. Is it all about
looking like GMail or what?
This new interface will cost Microsoft a subscription customer unless it's
either reversed immediately or FIXED. I HATE this interface, everything that
has changed is a regression in functionality and design.
I hope I'm not alone with this opinion and more users will complain until
this ridulous marketing-inspired, child-like interface is reversed. It's
practically entirely useless.
And for God's sake pick ONE marketing name and stick with it!!! "Live",
"MSN", "Hotmail"... Geesh! This concatenation of marketing names to reduce
the confusion actually makes it worse, dumb bunny marketing people! Call
it Microsoft Live Mail and be done with it..
