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.

    Please reset my email back to the original format that I had before you upgraded me. I used to be able to read attachments, reply to emails, and function as well as send new emails. None of these skills are available to me now. Just restore me back to the original format and I wont ever need an upgrade from you guys again. In l
    ife.

    I echo everyone who wants to go back to the old version. The old version should be available to go back to, instead of this pile of ****.

    How do I revert to the old version? This "Upgrade" just isn't user friendly at all! What is wrong with you Guys?

    This has not answer my query. Many users would like to switch back to the old view. Please listen to our concerns and honour our wishes

    I wish you could give that button back that allows users to swap back to the old version of outlook. It was much more robust, efficient and stylistically more beautiful.

    Can't you see how many people are disgusted with the program that you forced us to use? Or is it that you really don't give a rats ***? When you do reply it's always the same, "thanks for the feedback, change this, turn this off, etc..." You should have at least left an option to revert back.

    Allow users to Go Back to the original version of Outlook. You have made the whole thing confusing and it's now dressed up like a Christmas Tree.
    Sometimes simplified screens work much better, and will always be more attractive to the user who is trying to get beyond the fancy colors, whistles and bells, and just get down to using it as a quality tool to send and receive E-Mails.
