Constructive criticism:

1. I tried adding my @outlook.com email address and I had to manually allow SMTP and POP3 servers. A newbie mom or dad user is not going to know what to do and ultimately dismiss your app. Make it much cleaner so it works "at once" with Outlook.com email addresses.

2. Scrolling is very slow and annoying. Can you make the scroll use the current default speed on my machine? (Using Windows 7 64 Bit)

3. Visual bug in the search bar area: http://i.imgur.com/ybO7G.png

4. Clicked on an email and it's stuck on Retrieving for a very long time... still stuck there... :(

5. BREAKING BUG: I added my Outlook.com email and get this notification:

pop3.live.com told Inky this: "-ERR Exceeded the login limit for a 15 minute period. Reduce the frequency of requests to the POP3 server.."

I respectfully disagree about 1. Because of the autodetection, you can't be sure that the server you're connecting to is the right one. You have to double check this before you send your password to a potential attacker.

I don't think there should be special cases for certain email addresses. I think the instructions on what to do should just be as clear and detailed as possible.

Hotmail/Outlook servers have serious issues about usage limits. We're working on fixes (or work-arounds, depending on your perspective).
