Readd Folder Name after Search Box Location Changed
After the search update (when the search went to the line above the ribbon) the folder name for the folder / mailbox that is selected is gone. Please readd this option as now there is no way to quickly know in what folder/mailbox I'm at the moment... and when you're using multiple mailboxes this option is/was a life saver

As a heavy user of Search feature for many years, I'm extremely disappointed with the Search "enhancement." Downgrade in my opinion... please revert back to the previous functionality with ability to add "To" "From" Subject" "Body" in the drop down. It's unnecessary extra steps to have the pop out box of Advance Search, and it's not even returning the correct results. Highly recommend a roll-back on this feature. Don't fix what wasn't broken!
We have been used to the folder name at the top for 10+ (20+?) years. It is hard to change habits. The problem with using the folder pane to highlight the current folder is that it could be scrolled off the screen. Put it back, please. Either 1) in the old place (title bar), or 2) somewhere else in a fixed location. BTW, other office 365 apps like Word & Excel just ADDED the search field in the title bar NEXT TO the current docname. I'd be happy if you did that with the folder name in Outlook.
Why on Earth would anyone have thought it a good idea to remove the folder name? It's a Windows standard that the title bar contains the name of the window. Surely it's a bug caused by overwriting the title bar with the search box, which never used to be there!
This is so fundamental a breach of Microsoft's own standards for ANY Windows app that it should never have got out of QA. It requires an urgent fix!
