I am not saying I agree with the decision, but these are decent arguments:
  • Devoting resources to keeping the classic interface compatible with the backend, as it changes, siphons off developer time that could be better spent (in Fastmail's view) in other areas.
  • The classic interface provides an additional attack vector for crackers. Removing the interface improves security.
Fastmail claims (and I have no doubt they are right) that only a small minority of the base still uses the classic interface.
