New look and new font face
The webmail has been updated with more colors and a new font face for improved legibility.
2- or 3-pane message preview
You can now preview messages either in a horizontal pane beneath the message list, or to the right of the message list as shown below.
Toggle horizontal/vertical message preview pane
There is now a fully featured message toolbar including Reply, Reply all, Forward, Move to folder, Mark read, Mark flagged, Report as spam, and Move to Trash.
On the right hand side you will find message view buttons such as Print, Vertical/Horizontal preview, Full height, and Close.
