The new Outlook.com

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.

    For a minute, I thought the old email was back and I was so happy. Now, it is the same old **** where I can't get to my junk files. Thanks a lot. Someone must be on drugs who came up with a so-called new design as a nightmare. Please put my email back to where it was before you guys screwed with it.

    The new Outlook setup is terrible. The old version was much easier to use and look at. I will be discontinuing use of Outlook and switching to Gmail.

    I HATE this e-mail!!!!!!. I want my original Outlook back. This thing is so slow and non-user friendly. Today I can't even open any messages in my in box or delete anything in my junk mail. You probably won't even get this. I demand my old e-mail back or I will completely change e-mail, addresses!

    You email says I can switch in and out of the new changes to Outlook. Now you are telling me that I can't. The new version requires me to do more clicking of the mouse. I want the old version back.

    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.

    How can I go to the old version? This new set up is confusing not efficient and emails in the chain that are not
    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?
