  2. Problem when reading pane is enabled...

    Hi, in Outlook mail layout settings, when I have reading pane enabled, I still want to be allowed to enable the "return to the message list" option after I move or delete an item that I am viewing. Because I don't want Outlook to auto open anything next for me. This is to prevent the current annoying behavior which causes new email to get auto opened and marked as read before I am actually ready to open them. Currently the "return to the message list" option is grayed out so I can't enable it when I have reading pane also…

  3. Number of attachments not clearly visible

    With the current design, the number of an e-mail's attachments isn't obvious.

    A user easily gets to believe that there is only one single attachment attached to an an e-mail while, instead, it has more than one attachment attached.

    With the current design:
    (a) in the inbox you only see a paper clip,
    (b) in the e-mail itself, when opening the e-mail, you only see the first attachment. Only a tiny, hardly legible note suggests to reveal the other attachments.

    I suggest:
    (a) to add a number bubble to paper clips in the inbox, showing the number of attachments,
    (b)…

    So beta version is not useful. Classic View is Conveinence to us.

  5. Title: Navigating Through Mail

    Please provide a feature that allows one to skip the pinned-items section and go directly to the unpinned section. Scrolling there is cumbersome.

  6. count read deleted emails as deleted emails

    I have noticed that when I read an email and then delete it, it is not counted as deleted email. Why is that, it is a deleted email and should be counted as a deleted email.

    Move message to folder as rule in firefox focus fumbling..

    As soon as I hit 'select folder' the option crashes!
    Other rule stuff I have not tested aside from a working 'set as read'.

  9. Can't see if email has an attachment

    Can't see whether the email has attachments or not unless I open it in a separate window. I don't consider this as an improvement.

  10. Love the new Beta format; some suggestions for you

    Thank you! I LOVE the new Outlook.com layout and features which surprises me as I normally detest changes, but after making a few tweaks, like removing the sender's colored circle on the left, I got it looking somewhat like the old format but with much better functionality on my Mac. I was frantic over the missing Undo button in the Inbox for when I delete an email by mistake, but then I realized that Command Z does exactly what the Undo button did! It brings back the deleted email! Yay! It might be good to include a reference to that…

  11. removing the search function was a poor idea!

    It used to be easy to search for a name in a file of messages, but now there seems to be no way to do that.
    Worse, the help function doesn't work at all: you put in your question and click the button, but nothing happens. It would really be good it Microsoft ever bothered to test their changes (which are certainly not improvements!)

  12. DELETE CONFUSING

    if you delete one message, the trashcan icon is in the second place,but when selecting more than one, the trashcan chages its position to the 1st. This is confusing and u can click by mistake the 2nd icon which can change into "file" instead of "delete".

  13. Sent Email Didn't Send Body

    Hi,
    Two different recipients told me the email I sent them didn't have a body. I will point out the emails to you if you would like. I sent the emails on my Windows 10 laptop using Chrome browser.

  14. We need more powerful delete buttons.

    We need more powerful delete buttons more than deleting all in frustration.

  17. Duplication

    Email duplication of "Results" needs to end. It's completely repetitive and a waste of time.

    Can’t blind copy a group of emails. Keeps saying “No results found”. I have just spent over an hour trying to send an important document. I ended up sending it on gmail no problem. Correct this problem!!

  20. storage that increases by itself

    storage that increases by itself, even if I delete my emails, it is very penalizing that the storage increases alone with the same number of mails in my inbox, this becomes normal once in a while but increases again after some time
