Live Mail: Compact and quick (views)
There are a few things that make Windows Essentials Mail a less than appealing mail client. There were a lot of issues with WLM 2011, so first off, everyone should be running the 2012 version.
The first thing that bugged me was the ribbon - you had to leave it open or drag it open to do just about anything. I always had a difficult time finding the tool I needed, say "Mark All" for instance. I found a neat trick to solve that issue (Shawn probably has a tutorial).
The mail client has it's own quick access bar, all you have to do is put the tasks you use most frequently on it - you never have to open the ribbon again!
The second thing was the left pane which has limited layout control.
The accounts (another story) are fix spaced, the only option is to move Accounts up or down. You can move Outbox and Storage folders too, but it doesn't stick, they're back at the bottom of the list when you open WEM again.

There are and always will be "features" that don't work properly in any application. WEM (using the "new" MS reference: Windows Essentials - Mail) is no exception.
One issue with the WEM Quick Access Toolbar that bugs me is that you cannot change the order of the icons. It's a static order at add time. In other words, the first item you add will always be the first.... the fourth item you ad will always be the fourth. If you want to "control" the order, you have to plan and add the items in the order you want them presented. There's probably a way to change the order with a registry hack, but I haven't investigated that as it would be user specific.
