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.

    Very big add to the right, your email has a very bad presentations, I am thinking seriously to move to something else. I am sure your are loosing many customers because of the bad user experience you give to your users.

    The ad appearing on the right side of the page is disrupting the view of the mail box. Can it be viewed as a small box in a corner or may we an option to close that box to read our mails without much issue please?

    Why have added a window to the right of my message window, I cant read my messages because this unwanted window is taking all my reading space. Can you please remove it.

    I agree. I NEVER click on the ads on any site. They don't even register. The ads streaming just chew up data...which we have very little per month. If you want to make a free e-mail, make it free...one option for computer users, another option for smart phone users. Don't try to combine both, it doesn't work. Beta split screen is and has always been useless to me.

    I don't like the advertisements that pop up in my inbox; it's just more stuff I have to delete.
