    First off, thank you very much for all of the great feedback. I just wanted to circle back and let you know that we introduced a ton of settings around configuring the layout of the new outlook.com experience.

    You can disable a lot of the new options all from the quick settings. For example, you can disable the reading pane, conversation view, sender photos, etc.

    Just log into your account, click the gear in the top right, and from the quick settings pane you can do a ton of easy simple config changes.

    hope this helps!

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.
    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.
    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.
    You might also find this help article useful: aka.ms/outlookcombetahelp. It has some simple steps to fix common problems.

  7. Too Busy

    I like the old version. The page is too busy: files on the left, e-mails in the center, open on the right--too busy. Leave it like it was.

  11. The delete button is not working properly!

    When I click in the delete button of a message, the message is deleted but the page doesn't refresh. I have to do this manually.

    A few days ago it was working properly.

    First off, thank you for using Outlook.com and for taking the time to provide feedback!

    I am sorry for any bugs or problems you hit in the new Outlook.com experience.

    We have been working hard to address these issues. I just tested and confirmed that I am not seeing this problem any more.

    Can you give it another try and report back by opening up a new feedback thread or contacting support from within Outlook.com?

    Thanks

    Thanks again for the feedback. This feature should now be deployed world wide. To setup/view your connected accounts please follow these steps.

    1) Click on the Gear in the top right
    2) Click on View Settings at the bottom of the Quick Settings Pane
    3) Under the Mail Tab there is a Sync Email setting. This is the connected accounts area. You can add new ones, or see the ones you already added.

    Thanks for using outlook.com!

  13. I never had intrusive audio ads before the beta. Ads are fine, AUDIO is not. Blasting commercials are a huge annoyance.

    Don't allow audio without permission. Ever. For anything. NO sound effects either. No springing audio from emojis and such. None.

    First off thanks again for using outlook.com and reporting your feedback on ads! As Lynn mentioned before, we do not allow ads with audio. We have been making sure that this does not happen going forward.

    Please let us know if you have any other problems with ads going forward.

    Thanks!

  15. Cannot use hotmail account since Microsort too over.

    Since outlook took over my Hotmail account, it changed my email to my other account and I have not been able to send or receive e-mails to my Hotmail account. There doesn't seem anywhere that I can read the Hotmail account to outlook. Trust Microsoft to stuff things up.

  17. Outlook Censoring Email sources

    You are blocking messages from American Wire@theusawire.com! I forwarded the message to my other email account and it displayed the message without any trouble. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. The last time I checked, this was still America, the land of free speech and equality for all.

    Thank you for the suggestion, and for using outlook.com.

    I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that there are a variety of ways to protect your account with two factor.

    You might want to check out this article – https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12408/microsoft-account-about-two-step-verification

    Also, I recommend using the mobile authenticator app. It works really well!

    Hope this helps
