  1. Infinite scroll makes it impossible to get to old emails

    Previous iterations of outlook.com have used pagination or viewport scrolling to allow me to accurately jump to any point in the middle of my inbox. The new layout, however, uses infinite scrolling, meaning that if I want to view a message more than a few days old, I have to scroll to the bottom, wait for a few messages to load, scroll to the bottom, wait for more messages to load, ad infinitum.

    In fact, I can't any way in the new inbox of jumping to a historical email. If I can remember that I received an email at the…

      • Display Modes for Density or Compact

        isn't it possible to have more compact view? menus are taking lots of space in screen and way too annoying.

          First off, I want to thank everyone for providing feedback about spacing/whitespace/density controls. This is indeed something that we are evaluating and designing. At this time I don’t have an exact time frame for when this will be available, but we will keep this item updated as we progress with this work.

          Thanks again for the feedback, and for using Outlook.com. Keep the great feedback coming.

        • Can no longer drag & drop emails to folders

          Can no longer drag and drop emails to folders. It only works if that email is not the current one open. So if I have only one email left in my inbox (I like to keep my inbox empty) I can't drag and drop that last remaining email because that one is "open" I have to click on the little circle to the left of the email, then from the drop down folder menu click on the folder I want it to go to. This is more time consuming .This is using google chrome and IE and from other computers…

              Hi everyone,

              Thank you for using our product and thank you for letting us know your feedback. You can scope the date range by clicking on the “All folders” button on the right side of the search box today.

              We are working on a more powerful Advanced Search feature which will allow you to specify more scoping attributes. Please stay tuned.

              Thanks,
              Frank

                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

                    Love the email section

                    When using the beta calenadar, I no longer have today's calendar items on the right hand side on the month view.

                    I prefer month view and to see today's list.

                    • Expand Calendar Color Choices

                      The selection of colors for calendars is very limited, and the 9 choices given have several that look very similar. I would love more choices, or at least choices that are more distinct from each other.

                        • Calendar: Option to turn events from email off not working

                          When I disable the checkbox next to "Automatically add events to my calendar from email" and click on "Save" afterwards, Outlook only retains the change for the current session (tried with Firefox and Chrome). As soon as I log off and log in to Outlook again, the option is enabled again, meaning lots of unwanted entries are being listed in my calendar. (Also I have no option to go back to pre-beta as it seems.)
                          It would be great if this change could be retained even after logging off. Many thanks!

                          • unable to disable anything

                            As a solution to some of your user's problems, you advise us to click on the gear on the upper right in order to load the setting pane. Then we can disable various functions. I'm unable to disable anything because the right side of the setting pane (where you can click to disable something) isn't visible-it's under-what do you call those things?-what you use to scroll up or down with. The right side of the setting pane used to be visible, but hasn't been for a while now.

                                  Everytime I return to contacts, I have to change the filter to my preference.
                                  OneDrive has a feature that allows you to save your preferred sort order.
                                  That would be a great consistent use of the feature in outlook throughout.

                                      I want to thanks everyone for providing feedback so that we can make Outlook.com better.

                                      The folder scopes that are available is limited today but you can still access them via the “All folders” button on the right side of the search box. You can also select a folder in the left pane first before you search. That will scope the search to just that folder.

                                      We are working to improve the Advanced Search function which will allow you to scope your search to any folders. We will let you know when the feature is available.

                                      Thanks!

                                      If you want to write a second email to a receiver from the previous sent and select the "Replay" option from the "Sent mail" folder......the new mail is set to be sent to yourself instead to the real receiver. You have to select "Replay to all" to find the desired receiver in the "To" field.

                                      Please restore the classic function of the "Replay" option.
