I do not like this version at all. I can't see as many e-mails, it is difficult to navigate. Please go back to the old version.

    I STILL hate the new format! It sends me right over the edge every time I open my Email! It is so hokey, childish and distracting. Totally unprofessional! Why can't we have the option to switch back to the old format??? I really intensely hate this new garbage.

    meant to be seen when I forward are showing up. errrrrrrr

    This is the worst microsoft email format in their entire history - go back to the way it was 6 months or 6 years ago. THIS IS A TRAVESTY - THIS IS AS BAD AS VISTA !

    Please let me go back to the old calendar/email. I strongly dislike this. I'm disabled, and this is difficult for me to use. If I can't have the old format back, then I will find another calendar. I got no warning about this change! Please let me go back to the original format! Thanks.

    Please put hotmail back as it was = this new one is a debacle - a mess - complex - i.e not spam - not spam - twice? Say something once why say it again?

    Haven't used the account for awhile. The changes made are impossible. Please change back to former format.

    I don't want to use Outlook with this new user interface. I want the original UI back or an option for the original UI.

    I so hate the new version of outlook. Intensely annoying font. I want the old format back; now you're not letting us set it to the old appearance and I am upset. Hate it, hate it, hate it. Hate the font, hate the appearance of other email addresses in the subject line, hate the position of "New Message," hate the lengthened response time to check off/delete messages because you've fancied it up so much it doesn't work as well. Why do you fix what's not broken???????
