when writting a new email, the screen of the Mail app is mainly splitted in 3 "parts": address/subject fields, body and the keyboard. - The upper part, from the top to the 3 dots, uses about 40% of the screen surface. - The email body part has only 2 lines whos start is not very easy to locate when starting to write the message. (mainly due to the 3 dots) - Well, and the keyboard take the rest of the space.

The first part should be optimized, I really have the feeling that too much space is lost. The email body start should be easier to locate.

don't see an issue with space, as all of the blank msg including one line signature is visible initially, and the header parts scroll out if going deeper into the msg — but yes the start of the body is uncomfortably floating in space. Less of an issue replying because start focus is in msg body then

don't see an issue right now really, but your point may be valid when landscape is implemented.
