  7. Attachments cannot be downloded in Beta version.

    I was not able to download attachments from my mails. So I switched to the older version and I was able to do so in a sec. I tried downloading to the computer and saving to the oneDrive etc. From the mail itself, the drop down to download, preview etc was not also working.

  8. Please reintroduce numbering of mail pages for each folder and show the total number of mails for each folders.

    Previously all folders had a numbered page system with about 30 mails on each page, thereby making it easy to flip back and forth through the mail pages.
    This page numbering was really a great help, also when deleting mails from folders.
    Futher - the total number of mails was shown, not just the unread ones.

    Please reintroduce numbering of mail pages for each folders and show the total number of mails in each folder, i.e. total *** mails in INBOX including yyy unread mails
    Thanks - that would be a great help!

  9. Please hide deleted messages

    When you switch from "focused" to "others", all messages that you painstakingly deleted... are still visible. this is just horrifying.
    If I delete messages, I want to get rid of them. I do not want them to pollute me, even in some kind of a "all messages" view.
    the "deleted folder" is there if I want to recover something. the "all messages" view should show only clean and usefull messages. Not all the deleted ****.
    Cheers.

  12. scroll through search results

    Why can't I see all my search results? About 25 items show, but when I select all and press 'delete' I'm asked if I want to remove 60 items. Why can't I scroll through the rest first?!

  16. Select All and Archive

    Aside from having an option for Archive when selecting all mails, please have "Move to Archive" feature when doing search as well. It will help also when searching for expression or items and then Archive.

  17. Email search feature non-functional

    Currently the search feature is non-functional. When something is entered into the SEARCH block, Outlook.com says that it's "Searching . . ." but no results are ever shown. THIS IS IMPORTANT - NO WAY TO FIND PREVIOUS EMAILS FROM THE SAME SENDER.

  19. Attaching files from OneDrive

    Logged in today (Oct 1st, 2018) and it said Outlook.com has been updated. The previous version remembers the folder in which I attached a file in previous email. Now each time I need to attach files in a new email, I have to navigate to the same folder again to find them. In the same email, it remembers, but not when I compose new emails.

    You may ask, why not use the search feature? Well, if I need to attached multiple files from the same folder, the search-and-attach method is inefficient.

    Secondly, when I search in OneDrive to find a…
