New feedback

This new version is garbage, confusing, with avatars that I do not want to see, few emails per page and visually horrible. They should ask the user if they like the new version or allow the previous one to be used. I'm going to close the account after many years. It's just Horrible !!!

    Cannot even click on an e-mail to open it w/o it crashing now. Like another person says, the majority of the screen goes blank except for a few icons on the left - can't move mail to files either, should you get lucky enough to have it not crash. It's not browser related. this is the third browser I've tried. It's doing it on all of them.

    Update is unresponsive in Chrome, Mozilla, Safari and your very own Edge. You forced everyone to update to the new Outlook.com and now nothing works, you dry and respond to emails and the browser becomes unresponsive, you dry and write a new email and the browser becomes unresponsive, you try and continue a draft email and the browser becomes unresponsive. I have tried on my home desktop computer and laptop computer, my work desktop and laptop computer all running Windows 10 I even tried running on my Mac laptop and every single instance the browser became unresponsive. Search the internet and you will find everyone is having some variation of the exact same issues and yet Microsoft continues to force users to use this ****** untested version of Outlook.com. Microsoft is becoming just and even more pathetic software company with mediocre software engineers. I doubt that this feedback will even get a response.

    I'm having increasing problems with Outlook Premium. It freezes after a few minutes, won't save drafts or add attachments and won't send emails. I have to restart my computer and sign in again each time. It's really frustrating. Help!

  • perrobravo45 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When I go to my email page, I get a "loading" message in the middle of the screen, and nothing ever happens. Can't see any messages. Was working fine yesterday, just slow, now, nothing!

    I keep getting interrupted while writing my email. Says live.com is not responding and I have to find it in draft. It has been going on for quite awhile and its getting very old.
