        New outlook does not work well. When I delete an email, it pops back into my inbox. When I move an email to another folder, it pops back into my inbox. I have to perform each function multiple times. I never had these problems with the old version. Even your feedback function does not work. I had to do this at least 4 times in order to submit.

        Why am I seeing yesterdays and prior days mail in my in box AGAIN.
        Even worse this/ last months deleted stuff. What idiot came up with this idea. It is so stupid. When I delete an item from my in box I do not want to see it again tomorrow. If I delete by mistake I will go in and recover that one item. PLEASE STOP SHOWING ME WHAT I ALREADY DELETED .

        Now deleted items comes back after being DELETED in the deleted Items folder!

        There are overall problems with the "new" Outlook. More than often mail keeps coming back after being deleted, from the inbox folder in the Junk Email folder and even in the Deleted Items folder. This so-called Outlook is a mess!!

        EVEN THE FEEDBACK IS CAUSING TROUBLE. IT KEEPS SAYING "SOMETHING WENT WRONG"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I keep deleting the same emails, again and again for days. I delete them and every time I log in, they appear again. Cost me hours.
        Also, on simple emails (only text) i get the sign: "your message can t be sent right now", while there is no problem with wifi connection e.t.c.

        Can't delete emails from 'other' section of inbox. I select a load click delete and they appear to go but next time I log in they are back

        Why do deleted messages keep coming back into my Inbox? Once again, I've tried to delete a selection of messages 5 times but they keep reappearing a few seconds later! Selecting the messages in the first place is also less easy than it used to be

        Deleted items are coming back, please go back to the old version
        , this one has too many glitches

        The beta is slower. It doesn't delete or block messages the first time. Rather it deletes or blocks them then they come back and I have to repeat the process, and, more times than not, I have to do it in batches of three or four instead of all at once. It also refreshes for no reason. Please let us switch back to the original.

        Why is it that when i delete numerous mails. Even remove them completely from the "deleted items" too, they pop back up next day or hours later. zzz

        OMG this has been going on since before February of this year??? And you keep saying "we are actively investigating". WTF is going on? Either charge for a working email system or don't offer it. What in the **** are you doing with Outlook and why doesn't it work properly!?
