Enable sorting by sender, dates, subject, etc. in the filter dropdown
The filter tab in the earlier version allowed to sort by sender / subject etc. Please enable that

We will continue to make other improvements to the Outlook.com beta experience; thanks for your support!
2) In basic version, the button "filter" on the top can be used to filter certain types of emails from certain senders, e.g. social updates. But it does not work in the beta.

I have a lot of email and unread email in my inbox currently. I would like an option to clean all the inbox by subject. I'm sure it could be possible to make something like that.
It could see if the emails are related by checking SUBJECT and SENDER and only keep the most recent email.
I'm thinking about email notification from some forums where you get a lot of the same stuffs over and over.
