Ads take up too much space

I also have an Office 365 Home subscription... can that remove ads for me?

Update January 2018:

We have confirmed that all users whose email addresses have an Office 365 subscription attached to it are getting the ad-free Outlook.com experience. We encourage anyone who would like the ad-free Outlook.com experience to sign up for an Office 365 subscription, which comes with a plethora of additional perks and benefits.

In addition to this, users who would like to have a larger reading surface may find the Reading Pane Off/Hidden mode more preferable. This setting may be found in the Quick Settings panel, under Reading Pane > Hide.

    I have chossen the Spam as the adds that take up half my screen as far as I am concerned is just that. I would like to read my emails and when adds are taking up a third of my screen it becomes a pain in the butt. I have had my email with you since for ever and dont want to go else where but may have to if this continues. If I cant read my messages what use is it to me.

    The large adverts in bright distracting colurs cover half the emails content - so its only possible to read a few lines at a time. The adverts take ages to load and the email cant be read for some time until the adverts load ITS AWFUL.
    When you try to vote in agreement tocomments- you want all new info inputted and more. why?

    There are so many adverts that it is mission imposible to write or read a mail....The advert box is as big as writing box!

    Once again greed have ruined what once was a well made, simple computer program. Luckily for Microsoft, there's a whole new generation of user who have no idea what uncomplicated (read uncommercialized) computer application looks like.

    ADs block emails. You have 5G of drive free takes up almost entire category section. Your email has become extremely difficult to use.

    I can't read my e-mail because your adverts are covering the whole of the reading space which is small enough already

    Current Ad Canvas is Taking More Space On the Side. Give Ad like Google. Then Only Peoples love to use outlook. This is looking like cheap UI.

    I don't want to have to sign up for any 'upgraded' service - you know that that will cost money and that is ridiculous. All that Outlook are doing is ensuring that I will NEVER pay money for any service that its customers provide - ads blanking out my screen that make my life harder to live are nothing more than a deterrent. GET RID OF THE ADS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Having ads I can't hide in my inbox is extremely annoying and frustrating with the new chat set up. I keep accidentally clicking the ad when navigating chat. Also the brightness of them in dark mode is obnoxious, it'd be neat if the ads had a dark mode too (or at least dim the white a bit). Thanks!

    Adds take up too much Space and the scroll bar is sometimes lost behind adds. Seriously thinking about about changing to other service....

    I really don't like the new interface. The ad banner at the bottom is far too big.

  • Krissy_K commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There is a large ad on the right side, above my IM window. Now my IM window is super small because the ad takes up 3/4 of that side. How do I get rid of the ad?
