same icons for "E-Mail" and "Check for New Messages"
|Reported by:||tensor||Owned by:|
Icons in default skin for "Check for New Messages" and "E-Mail" are the same. "Check for New Messages" is essentially an action and "E-Mail" is a navigational link. Having two similar icons may be confusing for new users.
Changing "Check for New Messages" into something different and representing action (like two circling arrows) may better convey an idea of "check for new messages in current folder".
An alternative solution would be to change the icon for "E-Mail" button. Removing the arrow and placing the envelope above the paper tray may better convey the idea of navigational link.
I prefer the second approach.
