i have to agree with the way gmail is looking nowadays,
but that saying , i dont think i would ever go back to hotmail, to me it just doesn't seem professional to have a @hotmail email address.
but thats just my opinion
I've never understood this. @hotmail @live @yahoo is no more professional or unprofessional than @gmail. Sure, the name before might come into play but as long as that is sensible and not offensive people shouldn't worry about it. Do you think people years ago before gmail got laughed at for using hotmail and yahoo and impacted their job prospects or even now. Of course not. Yes, Gmail pushed things forward and was somewhat cooler at the start but it's just like the rest now.
Fair comments. I would like themes for Hotmail similar to the full page Gmail ones or at least allow more customisation.
Don't see much of an issue with the reply email part though. Full page seems better than two seperate parts when writing and replying to the original email.
Have you tried pulling your content down to something like Thunderbird or another client to see if it's just a hotmail issue. 56% of storage space is quite a lot. Something like that will take time and I imagine it won't get the new stuff until it's finished.
I quite like the Hotmail UI. Yeah, work in progress but it seems quite fucntional and clear, Text options make it straightforward and quicker for people rather than more drop downs hiding stuff you use regularly. Not cluttered.
