    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.

    First off, I would like to thank you all for using Outlook.com.
    And even more importantly thank you for taking the time to offer such detailed and actionable feedback.

    I did want to send a quick update and let you know that we now have the ability to hoover over an email and see the actual email address.

    Please feel free to give it a try and offer any additional feedback!

    Thanks

  4. Preview Pane - Options to disable, resize and move locations

    I am very fond of my privacy and am not happy about the fact that everything shows a preview. (even with the 'Hide reading pane' option selected) Please implement the option te let us choose wether or not we want our e-mails to be previewed!
    e.g.: The first e-mail in my private inbox folder is an e-mail with pictures of a new bra my wife bought, of wich she is very proud.
    When I then am sitting next to my coworker and open Outlook to show him the pictures of my fishing trip last weekend, my wife's new bra is…

    Thanks you very much for using outlook.com and for taking the time to provide all of the great feedback. I wanted to take a moment to let you know that there are now some additional options that should address the feedback in this posting.

    1) You are now able to disable or enable the Reading Pane. This can be done right from the Quick Settings Menu. Just click the Gear in the top right

    2) You are also able to change the location of the reading Pane. Instead of Just to the right you can also select on the bottom. Again this is found under the Gear menu in the top right.

    3) Also, some folks have asked to make sure that no message is selected by default when you sign-in to Outlook.com. This setting is also an option.

    To select that follow these steps:

    Click the Gear in the…

  5. reading pane

    There should always be an option to have the reading pane below the message list. If there is not, I will no longer use hotmail. Of course, I only use it for my junk email now anyway as Inbox by Gmail fits my needs much better for email that I actually need.

    First off, thanks for all of the great feedback! I just wanted everyone to know that we have options to configure the reading pane in a variety of ways. Including Reading Pane Off, Reading Pane on Bottom, and reading pane on right.

    To do this log into your outlook.com account and go into the Beta. From there you can select the Gear in the top right. The quick settings has the reading pane options.

    hope this helps!

  6. How to delete spams with the new version ?

    There is no more "delete" option on the screen when we are in the spam mails. (which means we have to delete them directly from the keyboard)
    In the French version at least.
    Why ?

  15. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    While I'm sure the new safelinks.protection.outlook.com links are worth it, they also "hide" the original URLs in Outlook.com emails.

    Chrome shows URLs at the bottom of the screen when you mouse over a link, so that we can identify what we click on BEFORE we click.

    You have now made it much harder to check by escaping the original URL and combining it with safelinks.

    The original URL is no longer available at a glance as you now have to perform a mental "unescape" in order to read it.

    While safelinks is a step forward in security I'm sure, the…
