With this update, the one thing we really wanted was to enhance the composing experience. So we went back to the drawing board to create a minimal & beautiful experience. By minimizing distractions, the new compose helps you to focus on the email you’re writing.
Every aspect of the new compose has been crafted to make it easier for you to send emails:
Frequently emailed contacts appear as recommendations
Contact names are shown instead of long email addresses
Thumbnails of your recent photos are shown, making it easy to attach photos without leaving the compose screen
Allows you to take pictures while composing an email (hence the new camera access permission)
A larger area for you to type your email
Infrequently used options like cc, bcc and from address are hidden
Support for Drafts
We heard you loud and clear, support for drafts was by far the most requested feature. So here you go, full draft support is now available!
Note: Since automatic syncing of drafts is not supported for Exchange ActiveSync accounts, drafts are saved locally for these accounts.
