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 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???????

    I want my old simple outlook back with good overview. No coloured points and other confusing stuff please!

    Yes I want to know if someone can please tell me how to convert this new outlook version back to the older one. It's way too slow and very annoying. It can't even type fast enough when I'm trying to email someone. Geez!

    They don't care, look at canned response, Turn this off and turn that off to get back what you lost. Not even close. Hey MS I have an idea why don;t you turn off the update and put it back. I know, this is not even MS and they don't care about the customer, never has nor ever will!

    Everytime you guys get "creative", the program gets harder to use and a lower grade program. Put it back the way it was , and quit messing with it.
