      I'd point out once again that this is a feature that operates in Outlook, and while I suppose that's great if you're trying to capture Outlook users for Y-Mail, I'd love to see evidence of the polls or focus groups that suggested we'd all prefer a more Outlook-like user interface for Y-Mail. *SIGH*

      I was horrified to discover that my drafts disappear
      after I use them to send an email. I use drafts as
      templates, and use them over and over. Some of them
      I've used hundreds of times, and my Draft folder is
      like a file cabinet for me.

      This isn't the only reason I can't use New Mail (one
      other big reason is I can't preview Excel files
      without opening the software, although I still can in
      Classic) but it's one of the big ones.

      I've already submitted this in feedback when I briefly
      switched to New Mail to test it out.

      Yikes! I sure hope Classic Mail remains available for
      a long, long, long time...
