Mine has updated now. It's not bad, nice and simple :) but the big banner ad at the top is killing it for me, I know it's been there for ages now....but can't they put it somewhere else?

I got it. Don't like it.

Me neither. Looks like an incomplete beta.

Yeah, I've noticed that, too. I can sign in and get to my inbox, but I can't open any messages. I just see "Loading..." message at the bottom and it never opens the message.

Might also be Ad Muncher. Currently bugs it too.

I've been updated today, and I HATE the new look. I preferred the old one instead.

My two email accounts, one with Hotmail and one with Neowin, was updated last week but only now have I been able to access my WebMail through Thunderbird. As it is, I'm not that concerned with the update as I rarely log in to my accounts using a web browser, preferring instead to just launch Thunderbird and have it download all my messages on to my notebook.

I dont quite like the new look, too bright. But hey, at least they updated the functionality for Safari.

Why use ad muncher over Ad Block Plus with for example Easy List filters. That gets rid of the ads. If you want rid of google text one use Easy Element along with it. It's great and solves your problem but only in firefox, maybe that's why you use admuncher for IE.

My one was updated yesterday. Disgusting! I really loved the previous interface, but this one ...... man, disgusting! No shortcut arrows to empty Junk mails or Trash, no colors (I hate this blue-white thing and only what you can change is the top - everythings remains white - I hate this). The first row (Inbox, Junk, Sent, etc.) is WAY TOO wide because they put the e-mail address into that row.... they should half the size .... and I really don't understand why they did this... I hate this! I want to get back my previous one! Is it possible???

Seems really washed out, and it reminds me of "Kahuna" a bit.

What's this?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems they wanted to reach the "speed" in these ways:

- No on-hover graphical buttons; just simply underlines under texts

- No icons in front of Inbox, Junk, etc...

- Only 25 messages per pages (silly)

- Color themes only color the header; everything else remains white

- And maybe a few other "cutouts" from the previous, great functions ...

------------------------------------

Now I'm thinking: maybe they want to protect us from ourselves and that's why they removed the 'empty folder' shortcuts? Why don't they keep features and make them optional what can be turned on or off under Options?

----------------------------------

Oh, come on!!! Where is the 'Check now' button?????????? :( :( :(

Ad Muncher 4.72 has a fix for it.

I had a nice black theme. Easy on the eyes, nice interface. Its just too white and bright now, no way to change it.

According to Liveside, Microsoft are shifting the advert over to the right of the page.

I wish they'd change to Gmail-esque text ads.
