I spent a good deal of time fine tuning 126.96.36.199, with the Skypilot Theme, to the point that NS8 was tolerable. Now, I am back to square one. all my settings are changed, and the Tabs which I was using, which, unfortunately, did not save are gone.
I am, pretty much done with 8.0.4. I don't even know where the system mail icon has landed, but, it is gone from the preferences.
I was able to reset it NS8.04. with old reliable Skypilot, and, I noticed that System Mail was out of the picture on the right, but I was able to "catch" it in Skypilot, and drag and drop it where I wanted it.
Still working in getting back the original settings, but I guess I got it back.
