I have Lion on one of my machines and I really dislike the interface. Dull grey colour, tiny icons.
Anyone else feel this way? Anybody feel apple could have done a better job in how they presented mail? At least give the user some colour options.
Am I a lone wolf on this one?
it beats outlook for mac 2011 which is a nightmare in its self never mind the million and a half icons along the top...
so I will take the mail app any day and its lack luster.. but remember you can always go to right click on the toolbar and customize the bar..
BTW - MS and its cursed databases are still there
Apple MacBook Pro 13" 2.9GHZ i7 12GBs
Apple Thunderbolt display 27", Macally Bluetooth Keyboard
Internal 1 x OCZ Deneva2 SSD 480 GBs ( removed superdrive - installed 750GB HD in place )
LaCie Stark 1TB for time machine, Apple Track Pad
Moshi Keyboard cover ( to catch the drool when surfing rumor sites )

Mail in general is a pretty light weight e-mail program IMO. It is great for personal e-mail and relatively low volume but truth be told Outlook on a PC, especially in an enterprise environment with a heavy volume of e-mail is vastly more powerful and customizable than Mail. That being said it is also vastly more complex to set up due to the huge number of options.

I've been a mac user for 4 years now and here's what I've learned;
1-most software apple provides is somewhat limited in usability, sort of the controlled environment apple advocates.
2-if it doesn't meet your needs, use a third party program.
3-choice and customizability? What's that?!
Having said that, I kinda like the grey!! I was bummed when iCal changed the colors.
It's pretty bland but I have to say that some of the new features (especially the search features) make it worthwhile for me, I need the functionality more than a cool look. Besides Apple will change it again at some point, so until then I will just not pay much attention to the bland bits.
