  2. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I am frustrated by the new updated because now each message takes up so much space in the top window. I can only see 3 messages at a time, whereas in the past, I could see 6 or 7. Is it possible to shrink each message from 3 lines down to even 2 so more messages can fit on one page?

    I also liked having the ability to see more of my folders when I went to move my messages from my inbox to another folder. Now I have to do a series of clicks to get it into my…

  3. New feedback from Outlook.com

    The individual message previews are too large, and I can only see a few messages at a time

    I HATE this. It makes scanning my email an endless series of scrolls and clicks

    VERY ANNOYING

    Please put it back the way it was

  5. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I went to general options and then keyboard shortcuts and chose outlook.com, this helps be move to the next email using CTRL-.

    But when I want to use CTRL-. again to move to the next email I must first click anywhere on the email I'm looking at to be able to use CTRL-. again. Can we remove this mouse click before moving to the next email using the keyboard shortcut.

  6. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Dear Idiots, When you search for an item using the search box in the new updated outlook web client, you can't remove the stupid filter. All you can do is refresh the page manually to remove search filters. How old are your devs? 12?

  8. New feedback from Outlook.com

    so far I am starting to not like any of your changes,.
    next suggestion

    after marking e-mails as read, it now clears the check boxes. e-mail selected should stay selected so messages can be deleted after marking as read.

  10. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I am about to renew my Outlook Premium account I have a couple of major issues that I would like resolved. Yes I am getting the latest revision of outlook. most of it is quite nice.

    The time is incorrect on the mails /inbox.
    In the past I could type a letter and the first word of sentence was capitalized. How to return this feature?
    I want the mail font to permanently be in 12. It resets to 8 , i have to set it each time???
    Why is this grey font color used so much, one cannot read it…

  12. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I use hotmail/outlook on my desktop ONLY.... how can I set the display to for DESKTOP? I get an error message "sorry we can't do this right now" what?

    The messages I select to open are slow... and some don't open at all.. what the heck is going on? I suggest you don't launch something until you know it will work! As it stands now the user interface is ridiculously annoying!!!

    You gave us no heads up or preparation for these MAJOR changes to our user experience.... seriously?
    I suggest you rollback the user interface to when it was more…

  13. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Needs to be a more clear cut guidance of contacts in Outlook to contacts in android phone contacts. Does seem to be merging or communicating with one another correctly.

  15. Having a pop up of who just emailed us is very annoying. When typing an email, having a pop-up of who is waiting for a reply is annoying.

    Do not have pop ups show up saying who just emailed us. It is annoying to be focusing on emailing someone or replying to an email and knowing someone is waiting for us to read their email and reply.

  16. New feedback from Outlook.com

    All my other Outlooks (Mac, Mobile iOS) put Archive in the message list for easy access. I'd rather have that than "Mark as unread" or "Flag". Do I really need 3 "bring this to my attention later" triage actions right in the list (mark unread, flag, pin), with only one "Get rid of it" option (delete)?

    Out look won't stop using an old photo from some old social app I no longer use. Please find a way to prevent Outlook from snooping and doing things I don't want. Thank you - it's very embarrassing to send a professional email with a goofy photo that doesn't even look like me any more. I'm sure you understand.

  19. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I have difficulty with several email addresses, with outlook telling me that it is an invalid email address. With those addresses I am unable to initiate an email to that person, but only send a reply.. Email addresses are valid on other email services. i.e. gmail, etc.
    How do I get outlook to recognize the email addresses?
