    I really don't like the preview pane for the email on the right hand side. It would look much better if it were directly underneath the message list.

    I agree, I prefer that the preview be under the message list. It's on the feature list, but won't make the initial deploy of this version.

    In the meantime, I noticed that on my smaller monitor the compose appears over the message list, and I like that much better.

    The placement and formatting depends on your screen size for example wide screen vs. square monitor vs. mobile.

    I never used "tags" or "safebox" but it seems the new version doesn't include them.

    By tags do you mean labels?

    I never used it so i'm not sure what Scrypt means by it.I took it to mean tags in forums in which people use to search.

    This is a capture of settings in the original Scrypt with "tags" expanded....

    I see, there is a mix of terminology. I think it should all be labels and no mention of tags. I reported it as a bug.

    One of the reasons i switched to more secure e mail was to avoid anything that has the word Google in it.I see the version of Scrypt has the word google in the settings.

    The new version of Proton does this,but,there is an option to "change layout".Maybe Scrypt will incorporate such a feature.

    Yes, we plan. In fact it was my intention to put in initial push, but when protonmail already start focusing on design, I'm still focusing more on security than anything else, and yes, design part is suffer. Which I still think less important for private email service.

    Google Auth is popular app, that using one time token in addition to password, that if somehow your password was stolen or guessed would not allow hacker to login into mailbox

    No, the use of Google Authenticator doesn't give Google the ability to scan your email for marketing purposes.

    It's an extra layer of login security that can be used to help protect your account login in case your password is compromised.

    It seems when I check a box (to select a message) and then delete, I get a screen that says "Please Select Email." I then need to click on the folder again to see the message list. IOW, there's no delete + auto-refresh of the folder.

    Labels are not folders. Does this "Help" description make sense?

    Labels are an additional way to help keep your email organized. An email can have one or more labels applied to it. If you have an email that has important topic(s) in it, you can use the key words as label. For example, if you discuss stocks often with people, you can put a "stocks" label on them and find all of them at once with a search. Think of them as tags for emails with like topics that might exist across your inbox and folder(s).

    Also, there doesn't seem to be anything in the right-hand column. The message list extends all the way to the right, but in message view and draft composition, there is an empty column. (Using FF 43.) Is this space supposed to contain something? At the moment it seems to be an unnecessary narrowing of the message and draft composition areas.

    Here's a shot of the compose window. The message view screen is similar in having the large gap at the right.

    How about the option to remember Google Authenticator for X days and not have it required for every login?
