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
I cannot see my messages because half the space is taken up by the advertising column on the far right of the screen. How can I make the message column wide enough to actually read the message.
I would like to adjust the width of columns in mail displays. Want wider message area. Narrower area for names of folders. etc
How about having the capability of shortening the width of the columns and increasing the size of the fonts.

Need adjustable columns in the email panel, in smaller screens, the subject is not visible enough and we have to enlarge the window to see more of the columns. It would be nice if we can read more of the subject line or adjust the column widths

want the whole screen to read emails not divided into three spaces I'm paying for this set up not you. This so called Microsoft and outlook should be put in a boat and sunk. They could ***** up the worlds fair with a tooth pic
Outlook.com has become the worst online email interface ever.
There is no clear or even remotely intuitive way to control column headings or column size
No clear way to turn on a ribbon or menu bar
in the layout section I have changed the font type and size but it does not change in the display.
This WAS a much better email interface
task list is showing too big row
can you make it simple

This update is horrible. I can't simultaneously delete multiple messages, email search function is slow, I can't adjust column widths in each folder, there is no way to move to the next page display unless you scroll all the way to the bottom, it is more difficult to flag and organize mail, etc.
PLEASE try to put common features into the Outlook suite of products. Your competitors already outperform you.
faint grid lines between emails, ability to adjust column widths, ability to turn off conversation view, ability to stop seeing the start of an email next to the subject line.
VERY HARD TO READ - not everyone is 20 yrs old.

Since the last few weeks when my mailbox is updated to the new Outlook service, I am noticing that the subject column width on the main list view of email is consistently reducing and becoming smaller. There is no way to resize this subject column currently (or I cant seem to find it). When I dug into this, it looks like the Sender column is getting bigger because the column is auto-sized to fit the length of the longest sender. This is causing the subject column width to keep going down and become narrower. Can you please find a way to prevent this from happening? Suggest you keep the Sender column width fixed so this does not occupy a huge part of the list view.

I would prefer to be able to control the width of the Sender Subject and Date columns in my outlook screen. I would at least prefer to have a wider subject column so I am able to see the subject, the sender column seems to have widened in the last 48 hours and I cannot see the one-glance information I could before. The Sender is usually much narrower than the space given to it.
Thanks for reading
Please add feature where we can resize columns and sort. Thanks
Make columns freely resized. There seems to be some block beyond which they can't be made more narroy.
On the left side of the Mail screen in the Folders area, WIDEN the thin bar which you click & navigate to folders vertically (up & down) from Inbox to all your folders below.
Make the width of the folder panel adjustable...too much wasted space
Get rid of the Info tool tip when the cursor is over the mail icon/picture...or at least make it smaller and close faster....
Re-think the lack of controls in the window displayed when 2x clicking an email in a folder...
Please make the window to read mail bigger, shrink the adds column and the preview. Thanks
It would be nice if the columns widths were more adjustable to allow more side view space when for quick scan of emails.

Ability to customize column widths (example: between Inbox list and reading pane, ability to enlarge Inbox column while reducing reading pane area (when reading pane is to the right of Inbox list)
