"Forced to upgrade, not happy."0.5 starson by solvs
Pros: Not as bad as it was.
Cons: Doesn't check for new messages automatically, LOTS of wasted space (in the Inbox, folders, when reading messages, REALLY bad when sending a new message, the menubar), ugly interface even when changing the colors, permanent scrollbar.
Summary: I hate having to refresh to get new messages, the ugly interface, the wasted space everywhere. It's like they didn't even test it or listen to the feedback that complained of just such things. Yet we are now all forced to use it. Or use another e-mail, but I've had Hotmail since the 90's before M$ even owned it, so I'm hesitant to change it. Yahoo, AOL, and GMail keeps making stupid changes too, so it's not like any of them are any better anyway. Especially GMail, they keep doing things people specifically say they don't like, but they force us to use it anyway. I've been trying to use the Mac Mail program, but they don't make it easy, and none of the others I've used are good either. Same problems with reading from free e-mail services like these. So I'm stuck reading from my browser, which was working ok with Hotmail and GMail until these arbitrary and awful "upgrades".
