Re: A review of the beta Mail UI
- I should have elaborated about the signature. Right now, it's an
"always on" or "always off" option. Under the original UI, there was
a check box in the compose window to selectively enable the signature.
I dislike having the signature orphaned beyond the text of the message
I am replying to because it gets added at the bottom of all the inline
text, not just at the bottom of my reply. So I turn it off and enable
it only when this won't happen.
