"Over the years we've realized that there are more capable email platforms out there," Verizon concedes.
I love GMail and I am sure Google wouldn't be hurt acquiring all those accounts.
My beef with GMail is in its "ugliness" by default, which makes one employ extensions to make it useful.
I love the way Outlook is laid out. In order to have this layout in Gmail, I need to use some experimental add-on!
Following an email thread is just too confusing. I am still learning how to use it myself...
I find Gmail colors too "bland" for my liking and options provided are a gimmick in my opinion.
Why can't I choose what labels are displayed on the left? I sometimes want to hide everything else apart from what has to do with email and to an extent, chat.
For Verizon, the demise of its email service is good riddance.
