      • the look and feel

        The look and feel is just terrible. There is way too much going on. I would like to keep it simple just like with the current UI. If this beta doesnt change and goes to production I am definitely switching over to gmail

        • After Toggling to the Beta version and back to the old, Inbox rules disabled although still check

          I have an extensive list of "Inbox and sweep rules" in the old version of Outlook.com. They were all working well until I toggled the Outlook beta switch to have a look. I toggled it back to the old version and ever since ALL of my rules are inactive even though they are all checked and appear to be on. Please help

          • Do not like

            Can't find things, not enough room to see entire message without having to scroll or close other menus/options.

            • Unusable, Stop trying to "Fix" what is not broken or make it into something it is not. Do what you do well - EMAIL

              Stop trying to "Improve" something that is not broken! This is terrible. Keep it simple! That was what was so great about the original Hotmail to begin with! This is not a social media service this is and has been my primary email for a very long time. Do what you do best with this service - E-MAIL. Don't try to make this into something it is not. This beta is too cluttered and unreadable on smaller laptops and even on larger ones is still difficult to use. I turned it off after trying to read one email

              • Keep Notes Section In Calendar Event

                When making a calendar event in the current Outlook.com there is a section to add notes. This is missing in the Beta Calendar. Notes are visible in the Beta from entries made in the current Outlook.com Calendar but you are unable to edit them. I use the notes section to remind me of details about calendar events. The loss of this option would force me to use a different Calendar app/service.

                  • when send a new email and click on "To" the conctacts drop down shows but no contacts are listed

                    1) When I click on new message and then click on the 'To' a drop down shows up that reads 'my contacts' but when I actually click on the 'contacts' tab I got nothing! No list of contacts no nothing! So unless you have a superb memory and can remember the name of every single person in your contacts list your pretty much sol on the ole short cut of finding them. You have to actually click on the 'people icon' which opens another tab, then scroll through all the names til you find or recognize the one you need.…

                        • Keep it simple.

                          Email isn't for emojis & bright colors. Keep it clean and simple. There's too much noise everywhere else in the world.

                          I use my personal email to communicate with friends and family. I don't need to be entertained and over stimulated by gimmicks. I just want to send a message and easily find the ones I've received.

                          • The new Beta version is Horrible!

                            It makes using my email much more complicated. Please do not implement this as the new look of our email. We don't need new features! As long as I can send an email, have my saved messages easily accessible, and have the ability to save contacts, I'm good. I do really miss the "Sweep" feature though. It was extremely useful. The "Other" and "Focused" inboxes are a royal pain though! I'd rather have everything come to one inbox. I've missed several important messages because they ended up in "Other". To be totally honest, I was MUCH more happy with the…

                                  I hate this beta format and I can't back to the Outlook Classic. I should at least have the option if this continues I will change providers.

                                    • adverts

                                      Adverts in the list of emails? A terrible idea - so bad I would actually change email provider to get away from it. If you want me to take my email seriously do not put adverts in what looks like a new mail spot so I click on it by mistake.

                                      • bad layout

                                        This new layout is really unclear.
                                        You cant tell the difference of a button or an image.
                                        The old layout was nice because there was a better summary of folders, and a better sight on how to forward or respond to emails. Just arrows to "respond or forward" is not clear.

                                        Please go back to the old layout!!!

                                        • Make it less cluttered

                                          I didnt like it. I don't like how much more difficult this is getting to navigate and cluttered it is. I miss hotmail. Simple. Effective. You can see the emails, organize them, get to them. Same with your contacts thats ALL that an email service is supposed to do, all that we need it to do.
