  1. cannot view message preview for pinned inbox e-mails

    In old version, I could view "message preview text" for the e-mails I pinned to the top of my in-box. I can still see the preview for all non-pinned emails in in-box, but e-mails I pin are the most important e-mails so I need to see the preview. Please fix.

    The inability to see details of these e-mails defeats the purpose of pinning them to the top of my in-box.

  2. Separate the "Junk" button from the "v (drop down arrow button)"!

    Separate the "Junk" button from the "v (drop down arrow button)"! When you click on the "Junk" button, it should delete, LIKE IT USED TO DO! When you click on the "v" button ONLY is when you should get the other choices (again, JUST LIKE IT USED TO)! And should work just like the "Reply" button and its associated "v" (drop own menu you button) do

  6. Folders column

    Could you make the spaces between the folders in the left hand column narrower so that I can see all my folders together rather than having to scroll up/down?

  7. Bulk editing more difficult

    The 'new' Outlook is not user friendly. I used to be able to select or check all emails that were visible on a page for editing, etc. Now if I click the select box it selects EVERYTHING from the beginning of time so now I have to make selections one-by-one

  11. Focesed inbox doesn;t work well with mailing lists

    I use lot of mailing lists. I can't use focused inbox because it splits threads across both focused and other which results in missing emails. The whole thread should be in one or the other.

  12. Command ribbon icons

    The command icons moving/changing depending on what folder you're in or what action you take has caused me to click "Mark all Unread" or "Archive" accidentally. DO NOT MOVE ICONS. Gray them out if they aren't applicable.

  14. Copy shortcut in mouseover contact info

    When I mouse over a contact in either version of Outlook, I see a Copy shortcut next to the email address that displays in the contact preview window that pops up. However, in "The new Outlook," the Copy shortcut doesn't work. Please fix that.

  15. Swap Empty & Mark as Read on Other Tab

    The "Empty Other" button on the "other" tab is in the same place as the "mark all as read" button in the focused tab. Why are the two "mark all as read buttons not in the same place?
    Instead I mark all my Foucused messages as read, go to do the same to my other folder and hit "Empty" instead as its in the same place!! Just swap the Empty and read buttons over on the other tab.

  19. Rearrange Delete, Junk and Archive in different positions!!! Delete should be where Junk tab is!

    Please MOVE Delete to the spot where Junk is, and move archive to the first tab where Delete is!!!!!!!! Delete is hard to click on and I dont need Archive and Junk is dangerous as it blacklists important emails that I might want to delete or move to a folder!

  20. Dreadful "improvement"

    Items are being deleted seemingly at the whim of Outlook. This includes items 'saved' into folders for whatever reason and some of them are very important. Is there a fix for this mess. I am perfectly able to delete items manually and do NOT need them removed automatically both read and unread alike.
