It’s a small thing, but annoying. When you compose an email, it opens in a new box, making it easier to refer to older emails when writing it. But when you reply to an email, this doesn’t happen, instead the box is on the same page and when you go back to your inbox, it saves as a draft. But this doesn’t have to happen, you can open replies in a separate box. Here’s how.

First, click in the reply box at the bottom of the email you want to reply to. Then click on the small down arrow next to the email address you are replying to (see 1 in picture). You’ll get a dropdown menu and from that menu, select pop-out reply (2 in picture). Easy, eh?
