    i loved this feature!! it really helped me keep my inbox clean without having to switch back and forth between programs constantly.

    this was a brilliant feature - please bring back - only need the delete flag not required!

    Seems ridiculous that they would remove a feature that made it so convenient to delete an email without having to open up the entire email. This is a major inconvenience given the # of emails I receive on a daily basis, many of which I delete. I would have liked to have been in the Microsoft technical committee's meeting when they all decided to make Outlook 2016 less user-friendly so I could understand the reasoning of removing this feature. Why go backwards??!!

    You should be able to delete or mark an email as read straight from the notification window, just as you can with Window's Mail program.

    THIS!!!! I am SO aggravated and annoyed that they removed this feature. It makes absolutely NO SENSE to get rid of it. Even if some users didn't care about this feature, there are plenty of those who not only use this feature OFTEN but NEED it available. It is a major inconvenience not having that there anymore. Why remove it?? What were they thinking?!!

    I am BEGGING you to add this back. Seems like a very simple fix

    This worked well in W7, but not anymore in Windows10. Really frustrating, especially that the popup tile IS SO HUGE, COVERING SERIUOS PART OF THE SCREEN, ALSO ENSURING THAT ALL IN THE SKYPE CALL CAN WELL READ THE CONTENT, WHEN SHARING SCREEN :-((((((((((((( We really need to be able to minimize it, or adjust transparency, as well hide content of popup mail window while sharing screen! We cannot keep confidentiality, especially as we work w competing vendors, sharing screens, etc...

    This is one of the most frustrating things that MS has taken away from their users. Removing useful capabilities when upgrading software doesn't typically sit well with customers....

    Debido a la gran cantidad de mail publicitarios que se reciben o correos basura, sería muy interesante poder eliminarlos directamente desde el pop-up que aparece sobre la barra de tareas al recibirlos.

    Actualmente solo aparece una flecha con la opción de quitar el pop-up.

    Y rizando el rizo, que apareciera la ruedecita de configuración en el pop-up para que cada usuario decidiera que hacer al recibir loa mails.
