I want to be able to pop compose into a new window
I want to be able to write an email and still be able to navigate around and use my inbox.
We are staging popouts beyond the initial set of features that are coming with the Outlook.com beta, but feel the same pain ourselves. Rest assured we want them back too. :)

This feature is a MUST, considering that how often I am composing/replying an email AND need to find some relevant threads from my inbox.
This is also the single reason that I decide to switch back to the original UI, for now.

Yes. This is pretty needed. And I can't open individual messages in their own window either. Sometimes I need to focus on the content of a single message and the rest of the Outlook UI takes up too much real estate.

This is practically a requirement for a positive accessible experience. Many screen readers do not do well with RTE editors in line with static content on a page - It's much more simple for the user to have a new window specifically for composing.
