    Hey! I’m really sorry to hear that you all are experiencing this issue with the scroll bar. We were able to reproduce the issue on an Edge browser, but I’m wondering if you’ve experienced the same thing on other browsers too?

    Can you fill out this form letting us know which browser you’re using when you get this issue, and any other info that might be relevant? We’ll try to fix it asap.

  3. Navigate back to search

    Hi, it used to be that when a search was made, we could view one of the messages, and the navigate back to the search. Now navigating back brings us to Inbox, and I need to do the search again to view another item! This is really annoying. Also, undo send feature is gone.

  4. Search does not work correctly

    I did a search on "John", looking for an email I sent to . I was on the Inbox when I initiated the search, and the search filter was set to "All folders". Search found his name and email address, but found no email, which makes little sense since he is not in my People. I clicked on the Sent folder and did the same search on "John", and it found the name/address as well as the email.

    What testing are you doing on features that something this obvious isn't found?

  5. delay sending email or undo send

    Hi,

    I'm surprise that this feature is not yet in Outlook. I would like the possibility to delay sending email to a specific time.

    Thank you

    I’d like to give everyone a somewhat complete update on this feature request.

    The feature “Undo Send” has been available on Outlook.com for a while now. With it, you can set a small delay of up to 10 seconds when sending all your email messages.

    Additionally, we plan to make available a bigger feature that is along the lines of “Schedule Send”. At the moment, I cannot provide a time estimate for when it will show up for you. However, we’re very excited and hopeful :)

  6. Search Old / Older email

    I am wondering where some of my older emails went to. I know I didn't delete them, but they don't show up is search. I'm guessing your software deletes emails that are older than a certain date. How do I recover these emails.

  7. Bring back hover search of email senders!

    Can't hover over sender of email to search for more emails from that sender, so I can delete them all at once.
    This is a huge time waster for me!
    Why did you change this feature Microsoft??

  8. Search Icon in Calendar has disappeared - can't search

    I can't search in calendar any more. The search icon (magnifying glass) has disappeared. I can search in messages.

  9. Find all emails from a sender

    I frequently get multiple emails from a sender in one day or daily emails from a sender. In the previous version, I could hover over the first line of an email in the Inbox and a context menu would appear. Then I could select "find" and handle all emails from that sender from the results screen. I don't see how to do that in the beta.

    I'll probably have to leave the beta version because I can't do this type of "find".

  11. In search results get rid of "top results" section

    When I search I want only one list of results so I can follow conversation with one person quickly. Top results is useless as I don't know what is missing there. I want all messages, excluding deleted folder, sorted by date with the most recent on top.

  12. Search is useless

    Search is useless. I've searched for portions of strings that are clearly inside HTML portions of my emails and the search UI fails to find them.

    Example. I see emails from American Airlines (HTML format, not attachments) containing my flight-number. If i search for a portion of that number...search can't find it.

  13. The Sort function not working right, basic functions lost.

    In classic version, I can sort inbox mails "sent from" and drag up and down to the first to last person in alphabetically order very quickly and therefore able to find a person easily and quickly. But in Beta version, I can not drag down to the end all at once. I have to continue scroll down and scroll down and it slowly load up the next few people. It takes forever to find a person in alphabetically order.

    In classic version, I can sort Sent Items by "sent to". But in Beta version, that function is completely lost. There…

  14. Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.

    Defect alert: Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.

    Repro steps:
    1. Filter your inbox to 'unread'
    2. Open a message, push reply.

    Expected:
    I should be able to reply to the message.

    Actual:
    No reply message appears, the message disappears entirely, and the message which was unread is gone from the filter (meaning you need to manually search to find it). You can see something new in drafts, but click on the folder and it gets deleted.

  15. Don't show deleted mails in search results by default

    I'm trying to cleanup my emails:
    1) search for emails to be deleted
    2) delete them
    3) refresh the search : they're still displayed in the search results, this time with the Deleted folder indication.

    I would like to have an option that would allow me to NOT display deleted messages, so that I wouldn't have to select the Inbox folder at each and every research in order to exclude deleted items.

  16. why isn't the junk folder available for searching

    You have default listings for searching various folders, but not "Junk". Why do I have to specifically go to the Junk folder to search in it?

  17. I can't get organised

    It's impossible to organise my emails. If I search for something in my inbox it brings everything up, even deleted items. How can I organise things? The search
    is rubbish

  19. NOT VIEWER FRIENDLY PAGE DESIGN

    I PREFER TO SCROLL THROUGH MY MESSAGES TO FIND WHAT I WANT AND THEN OPEN THE MESSAGE BOX, WHICH IN THE BETA VERSION TAKES TOOOOOO MUCH SPACE FOR NOTHING. THIS SHOULD BE OPTIONAL. ALSO I DON'T NEED TO SEE THE FIRST PHRASE OF THE MESSAGES CONSTANTLY, THIS SHOULD BE OPTIONAL. THIS WAY IT IS CUMBERSOME AND DERAILING, I WANT TO SCROLL THROUGH MY MESSAGES EASILY AND ON FULL SCREEN.
    SEARCH IS NOT AS EASY AND

  20. microsoft deleted my emails older than 10 years old without my knowledge, with no warning or opportunity to download and store them locally

    why did Microsoft delete email older than 10 years old with no warning? last year I was able to search ALL my very old emails for important messages and attachments. now that has ended. there was no warning from Microsoft that they were going to delete anything older than 10 years old, no opportunity to have the option to save them locally to ensure valuable data was not lost.
    it is an outrage! if you search this topic you will find that it is not an isolated incident, but the 'solution' provided was to use the outlook app and use…
