    Why am I having such a difficult time using beta? Beta is not user friendly. It has a mind of it's own and could care less than what I need...I feel like I've been microsofted. And that is a 4-letter word.

      Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

      You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

      We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

          Please change my Outlook back to the previous format. I do not like the new look at all- I am not in middle school. I do not understand why you keep forcing changes on users and driving them to other services... seems like a bad business decision. Options are what consumers want, not forced changes. Thank you!

              Outlook email for this account is not synchronizing with other devices. Emails read on I-Pad are showing as "unread" on laptop.
              Also, since you "FORCED" beta on this account, it is much slower.... Beta is a piece of ****.

                re New Outlook email format

                In addition to the SEND button being in a totally stupid location now (can't tell you how many times I've hit the REPLY button in attempt to send)...

                Once a person clicks SEND, the message stays on screen. This leaves the user wondering whether or not it was actually send.

                One more new feature that shouts "LOUSY DESIGN!" And prompts the question: Do the programmers assigned to work on Outlook actually USE email much?? Or is this the kind of stuff that gets farmed out to geeks in other countries because it saves you money?…

                      The recent changes you have made to the computer based outlook site are so deliterious and numerous they are too much to list. Is it your intention to render the site unusable and drive everyone to gmail, because that is what you're doing. I use Windows 7

                          I am fade up with your service and now thinking to switch over to another one.

                          All the time on sending every message it shows ....... couldn't send the following message and that too without saving in draft. As ther is no manually option to save draft now.

                          Your modification is now a headache for me it spoils all my hard labour of writing. Beside this there is too many issues i am confronting with every day.

                          Thanks

                              How do I get my Hotmail acct back to the original version? I must have pressed the button by mistake.

                                I do not like this version of Outlook. I am having trouble switching from inbox to sent e mails. I would not recommend this.

                                            First off, thank you VERY much for providing all of this great feedback and for trying the new outlook.com experience.

                                            You mentioned that you miss being able to search for messages with attachments.

                                            You can still do that. If you click on the Search box up in the top of the screen, you will notice that there is an icon all the way to the right. It is a filter button. From there you can select Attachments.

                                            Thanks for the feedback!

                                            David Los
