Please offer a way to turn off conversations!
Please allow a way to turn off the "conversations" feature.

Provide an option for to keep conversations from automatically grouping - it's annoying to have to be forced to deal with this format. I prefer NOT have my conversations grouped but keeping each email separate. It's an option in Outlook but not this web version.
I would love the opportunity to have each email in a conversation, show independent from the conversation. Often, I waste a lot of time, searching through conversations, to find a specific response.

I HATE the way 365 mail looks, compared to the old style of outlook.
For business, this is very difficult to navigate, especially on a cell phone.
New messages within threads get lost in the shuffle because of the stupid conversation setting. I keep looking at how to eliminate the conversation setting, so each email shows up in the inbox by itself, and I cannot find it.
The conversation setting is also awful, because it looks confusing on who is actually included on an email! People's names will show up on the preview, etc. but they are not even tied to that message. This needs to be remedied, or at the very least, an option for users to eliminate the conversation mode all together if they choose.

Allow a choice as the email view of "Messages" or "Conversations". I personally HATE the "Conversations" view. For me it is a total time killer. Did I mention it's worthless as well?
I miss the "Light" version of Outlook terribly. It has always been confusing to me to have all of the messages in a conversation clumped together. How can I convert to the light version or format it the way my old Outlook was without the clumped together messages?
More of a question than a suggestion.
How do we shut off seeing the conversations on emails so they do not appear?

It needs to be easier how to not see emails in a 'thread view'.
I need to be able to turn off conversations. I have a hard time finding important e-mails when someone offers up a banal response.

Disabled by default, give the choice to "opt-in". At least give the choice to "globally disable".

I'd like for Microsoft to allow admins of MS accounts to enable their new user accounts to have an option to have their Mail default to 'messages' instead of the current 'conversations' view that creates chaos for our teachers.
get rid of conversation view or at least make it easy to disable for all my folders in outlook online

Have a way to turn off conversation view,
not change how the conversations are viewed but a way to view
each message in the conversation as a separate message.
Please, please, please give us the option to turn off Conversations. I find it impossible to locate emails using this horrible horrible setting and i want it turned off.
I'm using outlook.office.com with Office 365 for Business in an internet browser. Can you add to the settings somewhere a way to set the default settings for all my email folders to be either "Messages" view or "Conversation" view. I generally don't like "Conversation" view on by default, which organizes all email by the same subject, because I move my messages into different folders and send out mass mails or email blasts, and when people respond, they can be talking about different things, even the subject line is the same. I already change the subject line when I can, but "Conversation" view often still makes it confusing to navigate my email most of the time, although sometimes it is helpful. Thanks!
Allow us to unlink conversations. Your conversation feature links e-mails into a conversation that has nothing to do with each other and it makes it difficult to find the e-mails I'm looking for. I don't want my e-mails linked to each other as a conversations.

Set the default 'Show as' option to be 'Messages' not 'Conversations'. Really dislike the 'Conversations' feature.

Turn off the thread, its annoying.
Catherine Wang commented
Please make it so my emails with the same subjects don't mesh together into one thread. Example --
If I email John Smith with the subject "Today is Tuesday" and then I email Albert Rogers with the same subject "Today is Tuesday", but its completely non-related to my email to John Smith.. WHY does outlook combine these two emails into one thread making it 10000x times harder to search my inbox and find my emails.
Please help! Thank You!
PLEASE provide an option to turn "conversation view" off globally. It is incredibly frustrating that it is the default, and has to be turned off in every single folder. I do not understand why Microsoft is so intent on shoving conversation view down people's throats. Most professionals that I know can't stand it.
Shawn Luker commented
in outlook 365 on the web it would be good not to have emails not be in conversation groupings. There is no option to turn that off right now aside from going to basic mode which disables too much other things in the process.
