Please Allow Customization of the Condensed Sidebar
I'd like customization options for the sidebar in condensed view. Currently, in normal view, you can customize your favorites, or the folders that appear in the sidebar. In condensed view, though, only the default favorites show. I'd like to be able to see my chosen favorites only in the condensed sidebar, rather than the favorites chosen by default.
+1 for this.
I cannot see any possible advantage to only allowing the customisation of the sidebar to function when expanded. What benefit does it provide to ANYONE (whether they seek the feature or not) for it to not function when condensed? It a completely unnecessary limitation for what is known to be perhaps one of the most flexible and customisable mail clients. Even if it only shows the 7 icons (the maximum), it will still prove incredibly useful to be able to order those 7.
The issue was reported in beta here:
and the staff responded by acknowledging it it as a fact, rather than a problem:

"in the condensed is no applied
the condensed version has a fixed layout"
Please, please, please change this so people can customise to their needs! It will save me numerous unnecessary clicks per day.
I constantly drag and drop my emails from inbox into the appropriate sidebar section, but when in condensed mode it literally becomes impossible to be able to drag it to certain favourites because you have to click on the expanded section and then click into the favourites folder which in the end removes you from the section where you had the email you wished to categorise in the first place!
