Adjustable column width
It would be great if you could let me adjust the size of the columns in my inbox. Currently the 'sender' column takes up more than half the space on the screen. This isnot ideal, as I do not regularly have senders that would be of such a length to utilize all of this.
It would be better if I could see the subject and more of the message preview than a lot of blank space for the sender field
Let US resize the columns to the width WE prefer. Why do you lock the column widths? YOU are not the ones using this... Let us have our email the way WE would like it.
need an easy way to set column width in mail
Under Display settings, please add how to change the width of each column on the email list reading pane. Right now, my sender name colimb is 5 inches wide and subject column is 1 inch !!!!!!! This is very frustrating. And the beta version is a big mess!

Since going "LIVE" my service has slowed down badly. Can we reduce the width of the 3rd (RH) column?

Please do not change column width for subject, sender, etc. when I switch to contacts or calendar and then back to email.
Allow users to set the width of each column. At the moment the Folders column has onlt two settings - very wide (reduces the width of the other columns) or very narrow - cant see the actual folders.
You do not allow me to adjust the columns in outlook, at least to my liking. I am not sure why this is but if it is not because of a tech. issue then it is just because of the builders control/whatever issues. Tried the Beta version and it is worse. The reading pane can be adjusted to a small window but you can not adjust the column with the emails in it. Just STUPID! I have reading panes that have a SLIDE BAR! Just STUPID!
they dont care they made the subject bar bigger to try to force people to pay for the ad free version

Make the right side column adjustable as to size. It is way too wide.
Is anyone at Microsoft Outlook.coma team leader for dev anymore? Have adjustable columns for email subject lines to display entirely - or add a theme which shows ALL OF THE SUBJECT LINE of all the emails.
Ability to Adjust column widths: Make all columns adjustable in width. I have 3 columns plus ads. Some of my mail is wider than the Reading Pane. I am unable to change the width of Inbox column or Reading Pane. Therefore I am unable to open many emails because they are too wide for the space.
I then have to open the email in order to read the right side. It is a PAIN to have to open the reading PANE!!!!! I used to be able to narrow Folders and Inbox (subject & sender) so I could read the emails.
Please, please let me change the column widths on the inbox list
I want to change the column width in Outlook so all information is in the view pane. I have to show how many emails with the date to an insurance company. Because all information is not viewable with the current view pane I now have to print out all 40 some emails.
Come on now - why the heck wasn't this included originally? Every other application I use with columns, the column size can be adjusted. But not Outlook. Another oversight on Outlooks part.
It would be great if outlook.com had resizable columns for subject, from, etc as I cannot read the subject because the from column is too wide. I hope this feature can be added. Thanks.
your layout is awful . on the tablet I can't move the columns so I can't read the email. you don't bother testing before releases. VERY ANNOYING. VERY FRUSTRATING. WASTING MY TIME.
UPGRADES THAT GO BACKWARD . EVEN AS I TYPE THIS THE KEYBOARD COVERS THE TEXT AREA q@#$%5
Resizing the sender and subject columns in Outlook would be helpful to those of us using our tablets to read our email. This would allow us to see less width of the sender column and increase the width of the subject column.
don't like the new web mail version, such a waste of screen space, no ability to compact email lists to a single line, this version creates a high probability of missing important emails that one is actively looking for, which makes it borderline unusable.

Add an arrow in the Folders column to minimize the column and/or settings to automatically minimize the columns until the user wants to expand it.
It already handles being minimized by grabbing the handle between the Folders and the Email columns and sliding it to the left. So I am just looking for an easy button to do the same thing.

Please allow the changing of column width.
Subject column needs to be wider.
