    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.

  2. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  10. Cool Things from old version no more... :_(

    I cannot do ADVANCED SEARCH, that means specifically , that I want to search Text inside every message and not just the date...the date?! and thats the first thing someone don´t remeber again!

    And where it is the option where I can see the List of Mails in ONE column?
    that for me was clearly...with 3 windows at the same time makes me crazy...please give the option...again...

    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!

  12. html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load

    most of the time html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load and there are NO links to add senders to safe senders list or to show graphics. So - back to non-beta I go.

  14. Deleting spam mails should permanently delete them

    At the moment deleting mails within the spam folder moves them to the trash folder. If the spam mail keeps being unread, the trash folder gets marked as it contains an unread mail.
    In my opinion it would be better if deleting spam mails would permanently delete them (possibly with an option for undoing that deletion) or at least mark them as read.

  16. search

    The search function has taken a step back. Yes it's nice that it's just a single search box, but, without the ability to filter, it's useless. This is bad enough that I'd forego the entire new design. Either allow other conditions in the search string, such as "folder:saved" or put the filters back on the navigation bar so that folder, dates, etc. can be used to filter search results.

  17. Moving email to folders, cannot scroll the "move to . . ." folder list

    When moving an email to a folder by highlighting it and selecting "move to . . ." from the drop down list, you cannot scroll through the folder list, but have to search. This is inconvenient when you only have a vague memory of which folder you need to move the email into

  19. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    new email system sucks. I ask simple questions on how to find old emails and I get dumb answers about restoring deleted emails. I have years of emails I want to review and now can't find them. Date range searching!!!

    Please reinstate advanced searching. I can't imagine how I will get to a specific date over a year ago.
