So I'm gonna take this opportunity to air some suggestions I have like when the pink arrow appears on a mail to indicate I have replied to it, I would like a right click option to go to the mail (if present) in the sent message folder.
Technology like Webmessenger should be intergrated into Hotmail now.
Has anyone seen how brilliant 30boxes.com is, why does MS not have this as their own - why not just buy the company and use their template to style hotmail, oh and some of that smooth AJAX is whats needed too.
Other silly things like not being able to trully organise, via drag and drop, of the box panes al la start.com
Also why not allow multiple search results, as usual if I search for something it just overwrited my last result set
what about sorting by attachments, I would like access to all my attachments at the click of a button
I would also like to see a lot more customisation regarding the menu options, buttons like 'cancel' I can do with out, thanks.
What about when composing an email and how the flashing text cursor starts right against the left hand border, thats anoying, it should be a few pixels in.
And why will hotmail not remember where I set the windows sizes?
Check Mail? what on earth, shouldnt this be done automatically?!
Why not marry up the local mapping service with the information in a contact list, I know this is done in messenger
--Anyway what has been done is the core features, like drag and drop, ajax, viewing and reading pane, spell check. Its all encouraging, I hope though that some kind of timetable for features is posted so that users can get an idea of when things are going to start rolling.
