  2. 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?!

  3. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Your help search couldn't find its * with both hands and a road map. By the way, this new outlook really sucks. You should scrap this ** and start over.

  4. 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.

  9. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    I hate this new live outlook. When I search I can't see which emails are in which folders and the print feature is terrible - I can't print without all of the text showing behind the print window, making the printout completely unreadable. This "upgrade" has slowed my productivity by a day or more.

  11. when click on a category all the emails of that category are shown but it highlights the "categoryName" of all emails if email include the "

    when click on a category all the emails of that category are shown but it highlights the "categoryName" of all emails if email include the "categoryName" , just like plain search of "categoryName". it's unwanted & probably a bug, if the category is favorited this issue doesn't happen. I think this need a fix. Thank you.

  12. Make Search easier

    Your user experience for Searching through emails is extremely bad. Please revert back to the older experience.

    In the new experience, there is no way to filter the search results by Inbox, Deleted Items and other folders. This experience is so confusing..... Have you tried searching yourself in a bug bash before releasing this product?

  15. Jumpy screen

    I'm switching back to the old version. The screen is just to jumpy. Every time I click on something, an email, a folder, using the search bar, the items on the screen have to jump/load like 5 or 6 times and it gives me a headache.

  16. filter for category

    It would be good if you could:
    1. Filter your messages for Category
    2. Transfer messages in a particular Category to a Folder of the same name

  17. Show search results for email attachments

    I find that in Outlook, Search does look in the subject and contents. But the results include email with attachments. I can't find the searched word in the attachment or anywhere in the email. It needs to be more clear where the matching search is in attachments.

    It looks like you display the search results for conversations, which is good.

    I want to thanks everyone for providing feedback so that we can make Outlook.com better.

    The folder scopes that are available is limited today but you can still access them via the “All folders” button on the right side of the search box. You can also select a folder in the left pane first before you search. That will scope the search to just that folder.

    We are working to improve the Advanced Search function which will allow you to scope your search to any folders. We will let you know when the feature is available.

    Thanks!
