    The view is just ugly and I don't want to see the 'Today / Yesterday' headings - I just want to see all my emails in a list which I can sort newest to oldest, with pinned ones at the top. CHANGE IT BACK FGS.

    Dear Sir or Madam, could You tell me please - how to switch off these notifications about e-mails: "Yesterday", "This month" etc. They are very annoying and totally useless. Thank You in advance.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What is with the "month" thing? The date is on the right...I think we all can read without you having to add "this month "October" etc. Starting to look like the mess yahoo made a couple years ago. Fixing issues would be better than trying to pretty it up. Thanks

    Please give us a feature to use or not use the days our emails arrive (Today, Yesterday, this Month). Takes up extra space & is not needed for some of us. The dates show on the side of the message, which is plenty. Some of us don't need 2 features, doing the same thing.

    To remove "Yesterday", "This Month";
    They refer to these as "date headers". Go to Full Settings-->Mail-->Layout. Scroll to the bottom and click "Don't show date headers in message list".

    Thank you @kujayhawk93!
    Also, for those who don't like the big colored circles with the sender's initials, from that same Layout screen, click "Don't show sender images".

    With the new look the list of the mails is way too high (I switched off the sender icons), now I can only see half of the mails in comparison to the previous layout. Maybe ok for mobile, but on >24" screens it's very annoying to only see so few information even though I have more than enough screenestate..

    I don't need my mail categorized monthly, it's a waste of spa
    ce, more confusing

    As usual MS gives us tons of annoying features we neither wanted nor needed and they don't give us a choice of how to control them. It's their way or the highway unless you can find the back doors.

    Thank you for this. Finally found it. BUT I STILL CAN'T GET RID OF THE DOUBLE SPACING of emails and of folders. Please, please fix this. Those of us who use a mouse or stylus do not want this productivity killing space. Please give more consideration to the business market, not to idle teens using tablets.

    I hate the new Outlook Mail and wish I could go back to the other version. Some of my complaints are: the mailbox shows fewer messages - and is taken up by "This month" banner; in the junk mail folder the 'delete' and 'not junk' buttons are right next to each other - I have accidentally sent a message to the wrong folder; the 'phishing' button is absent from places that I need it (like the main mail page) - so I have to handle the message multiple times; I can't arrange the 'Folders' in my own order - the 'favorites' folder is pretty useless and just takes up space.

    I do not like the new outlook live. I can't stand my inbox being separated into categories of week, etc... I like them listed--they are in numerical calendar order after all, why split it up and make it so difficult.

  • MaddieCollins@hotmail.co.uk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When I click on an email to open up, it says on the header in the inbox there is an attachment, and when opened it is not there. I need these attachments to be opened. I have deadlines and cannot use what has been sent to me as I cannot see them. Please can you sort this out with immediate effect. Thank you.

  • Anna commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Since the new look, I cannot open old attachments!! This is terrible!!! Why did you do this without warning??

  • paulriba-star commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    there should be a date on the items in the inbox for this week, not just mon, tues wed etc. this is really annoying as people refer to dates as well as days, please sort this out

    HATE the New Outlook, cant open attachment or download emails, too may repeted folders, don't like the Inbox today, yesterday, etc.

    Sept 20-2018 - I just turned on my Outlook.com (I have hotmail) and noticed the screen has changed. First off, I do not like how my Inbox looks with my emails sorted by months, then Older. How do I get my emails to be show just one after the other. It's too busy looking this way and if I can remove these sorted by months, then I'd be willing to see what else Beta has to offer. We should have the option to select how our Inbox appears with our messages. But right now. MAIL is looking much better.
