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.

    I don't like at all this new version of Outlook. Please, let me come back to
    the previous, because it's giving me too
    much trouble.

    Please change it back to the old outlook, or at least give us an option of choosing which one we prefer!

    Why does it say, "Awaiting moderator approval" after I post my comments? No swear words, no anti-anyone...WHY?
    Post that!!

    Perfect example of Everything that is wrong:
    1) Unilateral decision by someone not - us
    2) Techies who think they can speak or represent ordinary people
    3) Stupid use of new "gadgets," "colours," or any other "I.T. thing" with no concept of how it will impact - us
    4) Complete lack of common sense to provide a simple "button" to give an option "Put it back."

    YOU MESSED WITH ALL MY FOLDERS. MANY OF THEM AREN'T WHERE THEY WERE. I NEEDED THESE - GO BACK TO THE OLD WAY, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

    I don't like the new layout. I am pretty certain I didn't choose this when I logged into my account and I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to get it back to the previous layout

  • dianeneyk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I absolutely hate the new format! Please give the option to go back to the old format ! From the comments I'm reading, I'm not the only one !

  • jzimmz3 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    PLEASE GET THE OLD FORMAT BACK. LIGHT GREY PRINT AGAINST LIGHT BLUE IS BLINDING AND ILLEGIBLE. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO READ AND TO WORK WITH THIS. ARE YOU SERIOUS? IF YOU KEEP THIS, I MUST LEAVE HOTMAIL, AFTER OVER 20 YEARS ..

    PLEASE LET US HAVE THE OLD FORMAT BACK. THIS IS JUST BLINDING AND ILLEGIBLE. GREY AGAINST LIGHT BLUE. IMPOSSIBLE TO READ. HORRIBLE.

    Just awful. Cumbersome. Blocking in junk file takes three steps. Please give option of returning to old format. Considering dropping hotmail if this stays as it is.

  • takoto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The new layout is awful, even when using compact mode I can only see a fraction of what I used to. Is there any way to go back to the old layout? Please. I don't want to have to stop using this e-mail address but I might switch just to be rid of the layout.

    Put it back- I'll sort my own emails- you are not saving me any time/effort or SANITY !!
