New email notification looks nice from graphical design point of view, but less useful on practice. If in old style notification I may see who, when and, most important, about supplied the post without shifting on reading pane, e.g.
now I see much less
Practically I see only that new post appeared somewhere within my subscriptions. Thus with every new email I have to check reading pane where the subject and the body of the post are less accented parts.
By the way, what on practice means "Since you last signed into..."? If I signed (but don't check posts) does that mean I won't receive notification on posts appeared when I was signed in?

Thank you for the feedback, if you go into your settings and go to 'Subscriptions and Notifications' and click email format (or click here: My Settings - Microsoft Tech Community), you can change your email style from HTML (or automatic) to plain text which will revert you back to the non-pretty version. This will be very similar to the old view you had before.
Hope this helps.

Thank you, I'll try. Perhaps that fixes reading pane, but emails list stays not informative.

@Allen , yes, it was plain text.
And yes, if someone mention me I see like in your sample, but in major part of received messages nobody mentions me, thus as

In addition, even if someone mentions me I remember quite few MTC members. Thus even in such case it's hard to recognize what that's about without the subject.

Is immediate notification as shown on the below image.
And also in the past TechCommunity has changed something on the sent emails that Outlook does not treat the emails like a Thread like before.
