Message Sneak peek – This is one of the best features and it has made my work much easier. By enabling this feature you can see the content of a message in smaller form without opening but by just right clicking on it. You can see the message, mark as read, delete or star it.

Undo Send – With this feature enabled you get a second chance before you send a message. For example; if you have already clicked on send but the email is to the wrong recipient or you have made a spelling mistake. You can stop the email from being sent for some time to correct your mistakes. I’m sure everyone has made mistakes while sending emails. By enabling this feature you can eliminate that issue.
