    1. Not sure what you mean by the ILH pane, but none of the aspects/widths can be modified without some sort of CSS changes

  3. Is there a way to know which emails when you search are listed with what labels? This is a nice feature in the old gmail. The new gmail seems to have left it out. (https://goo.gl/photos/TktpDAJ6A4uPwbsz8) Thank you for your help.

  4. Can I get checkboxes to quickly flag and delete multiple mails on my phone? Can I get the most recent message at the top instead of the bottom?

    1. Just click on the avatar of one of the emails and it will become a selected check box and then the others become selectable check boxes

  8. Scott. I use Inbox A LOT. How do you manage contacts in Inbox? I'm really looking to use Groups to manage the different organizational emails so I don't have to enter each email address over again. Any insight you could provide would be helpful.

  9. I've got to say that the search function in Inbox is terrible. For me, my searches are 99% keyword searches. I don't find it useful to see "top results", and prefer that you just show me the results of my keyword search regardless of whether the email is in Inbox/Trash/Sent or bundled somewhere. It would be nice that the search return would show where the email resides (inbox, trash, etc.). I have spent far to long searching for emails in Inbox. Hope to see improvements on this!

  10. The search function in Inbox is terrible. My searches for email are keyword searches, and I find the "top results" to be rarely useful. Shouldn't email search be simple? I would prefer that a keyword search returns all results, regardless of whether the email is in Inbox, Trash, Sent, or bundled. It would be nice if the search showed where the email is located, or displays the results grouped by where the email was located. I have spent far too much time searching for emails in Inbox! Please improve this.
