  2. Expose Quick Steps in Outlook Web

    Quick Steps from Outlook Desktop are not exposed in OWA. This is an impediment to adopting OWA as a lot of work flows are driven by Quick Steps.

    I would like it if there were more theme options or an option to add your own image to use as a theme.

  4. Compact display is back

    Thank you, Microsoft programmers, for bringing back much of the old display density in folder and e-mail lists.

  5. Automatically share the address books between different tenants

    It would be great if two different tenants could automatically share the address books each other.

  6. Make all maps/items removable.

    Make all maps removable en don't add any maps without the user's/member's permission. Make the maps 'gepland/planned', 'archief/archive', 'gespreksgeschiedenis/conversaton history', 'notities/notes' and the section 'groepen/groups with the map 'nieuwe groep/new group' removable and don't add any new maps without the user's/member's permission. These maps/items aren't being used and empty most of the time and are useless maps/items.

  7. Ads on bottom pane obstruct my view of full email preview & email itself.

    The feature to move the ads to the side part of Outlook.com is currently not available. Make it available again. Every time I am reading a email, I have to slide the email to the right in order to finish reading it or C the date because I don't have enough space and I don't wanna use the focus email

  8. Home Page

    On the outlook.com home page, please edit the picture of the pretty young lady not to show that little shadow above her lips, it's like a thin black line as if it's the remaining of a mustache! This should not have been a glitch Microsoft had done!

  11. turn off new features by default and allow users to turn on/off with a switch

    I have spent 20 years being frustrated by hotmail (outlook). Every time MS adds a new feature they break something I used to use or the new feature is just annoying. I then spend ages trying to figure out how to use it again, contacting support, have to post a request to fix on a forum (?!?!?) etc- it is massively disrespectful of my time as a user who just wants to use email (without being part of a continual beta test program) to have this disruption all the time.

    Instead of just turning on a new feature, please, please,…

  12. Disaster

    The ads on the right are a nuisance. It is too cramped and complicated is right! And very difficult to find the thread of my email messages. Also attachments are hard to find. In short a true disaster. Take me back to the old outlook please. Help!

  18. Deletion of Subscription List Entry Bugs

    This is my reponse to my customer service rep via a trouble ticket concerning the inability to delete unwanted entries in the subscription list. Apparently before the subscription list entry can be deleted it has to be checked against the blocked senders list. After blocking 80 for more entries one at a time the blocked entries are all back in the subscription list at the next login. My CSR told me to post things here as the engineers monitor this blog ... but apparently dont bother with the trouble tickets. NO WONDER THE MAIL SYSTEM IS SO MESSED UP.

    So…

    New updated Outlook is very confusing and difficult to use or navigate. Forwarding emails attaches them to messages and they are unable to be retrieved.

    When writing new emails, they don't appear across the page for easy viewing prior to sending,
    Not as easy to find or view emails.
    Not necessary to have "focused" and "other" viewing folders. It is confusing.
    Your previous version was much more user friendly and much easier to navigate. Not happy with this update at all.
