lost functions in new email that I want back

I want to see the size of my folders, like I used to be able to in the old email system.
Also, I want to right click on a sender to be able to see all messages from that sender, like I used to.
Also, I want to delete attachments to messages and still keep the message, like I used to.
Please respond about these lost convenient functions in email.

Hover your mouse pointer over the folder and you should see the read and unread totals.
Also, I want to right click on a sender to be able to see all messages from that sender, like I used to.

Click on the sender's name in the header and you will get a large dialogue box with more information including other emails.
Also, I want to delete attachments to messages and still keep the message, like I used to.

The new format does not have this capability.

Re: lost functions in new email that I want back

More things I want back the way they used to be in the previous email format:
* I want my email tab to flash & play a little tone to alert me that a new email has arrived in my mailbox.
* I want emails to Open or Send immediately without waiting 20 seconds.

* I want the page text to be readable again, not the current pale grey in a tiny font.

* I want my colored folders back, that made it instantly easy to sort/locate/organize Saved emails.

* I want to be able to choose a permanent Default font/color/size for my emails and not have to redo it over and over.  
* I want to have every Received email retain the original font/color/size/format that the Sender chose, and I want their original email to be visible in the body of my Reply without having to click the faded dots.

* I want the other half of my Contacts in my Address Book back, that disappeared when the new email format began.
