As someone who has to read and manage a lot of email in my inbox, i'd like to suggest;
1. don't do it. please send in nice clean text that I can view as I like. I constantly get people sending me emails in weird and wacky ways with things like HTML that is totally broken to the point I can't strip it out or rtf.. I had one company that sent everything as a PDF attachment wtf is that about?!. I'd just like a plain text email that I can assign my own fonts to , not size 8px red on orange background or size 120px klingon superscript. I know this propbalby doens't apply to you, but I do prefer my emails to be clean.
I guess thats just an acquired taste, i love clean emails but i need the ability to make things bold for headings, and make important parts stand out.. I'm tired of highlighting my entire email just to give it a more readable font such as Arial, imo is more readable that times and plain text, i know mail clients can style text to the users requirements but is not always the case, the severity is noticable when i get a reply and i can see my email in the quote, looking awful.
2. Yeah, don't do that either. I hate it when I have to wait several minutes for new mail to finish downloading because someone decided it'd be great to send screenshots of issues, lots of screen shot and attachthem to the email... or the actual email as a PDF file.. please use links to anything you want the recepiant to view where possible, please.
Unfortunately it's the way the mac mail app handles things, if you add an image it's automatically embedded in the email, you do have the option to right click and choose 'view as icon' but depending who i'm sending to it doesn't always work.
Not sure what you're actually looking for with updated features. Email is, or rather should be pretty basic and feature set by now.
Fair comment and not much in particular, but i do like the dropbox feature of Sparrow, and the ability to click a button and view all attachments and be searchable without digging through emails.. just little things make the user experience a little better, this is something we wont see with Outlook as it has a very specific use.
