  1. Outlook update SO SLOW!

    Outlook update SO SLOW!
    Just tried looking for an email which turned out to be a year ago to the day, couldn't remember email address/identity of sender. Scrolling back through history is w-a-a-a-y-y slower than previous.

    • Make it less cluttered

      I didnt like it. I don't like how much more difficult this is getting to navigate and cluttered it is. I miss hotmail. Simple. Effective. You can see the emails, organize them, get to them. Same with your contacts thats ALL that an email service is supposed to do, all that we need it to do.

        First off, I just want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time and providing feedback on the new Outlook.com experience. I totally appreciate that updates can often be frustrating when things change. I also want to thank everyone that has provided feedback over the course of the Beta to ensure that we address feedback.

        With that being said, I do want to offer some types/advice on some options that you can select to get a view that is more in line with the old experience. This includes turning off the Colored bubbles :)

        First click on the Gear in the top right hand corner. This will load the Quick Settings Pane. This pane includes all of the key features that are likely different between the old experience and the new experience.

        To get a view that is similar to the old view I would turn off…

      • Block all sub domains from a top level domain

        Outlook needs to allow users to block all sub domains given a top level domain, for example "*.xyz", not only specific domain name. Spammers are changing sub-domains every single day so block specific domains is not practical anymore. What happens is that after blocking "this.xyz" domain, I have myself struggling with spam from "that.xyz", "alsothat.xyz", "alsothis.xyz" domains.

          • skype

            Please DO NOT include Skype as a mandatory feature. I understand it may help some people to have Skype load upon logging into their Outlook account, but for others, it's disturbing.

            Please provide a way to completely disable Skype's connectivity to Outlook.

            • Congratulations, you've just "upgraded" from my primary Email address to my Spam Collection Service.

              You see, when you force "upgrades" on everything, Microsoft, you step on everyone's toes. If people aren't upgrading, IT'S BECAUSE IT ISN'T AN UPGRADE!

              Fire the IT department that keeps fishing for ideas in the think-toilet. You're not trendy, and forcing people to use this garbage is ridiculous.

              It was bad enough that you failed to learn with Windows 8 and 8.1, and Windows 10. You've all-but-ruined Skype, and now you've trashed your 'Outlook' Email, which I've been using in one form or another since the MSN days. Yeah, that bloody long.

              But now, I'm going to use the Gmail…

                • How do I get rid of Skype notifications

                  How do I get rid of Skype notifications? Skype continues to ask me if I want to view conversations even AFTER I tell it to ignore them.
                  Specifically if I tell Skype to ignore conversations in one email session it closes the "Notify" box but if I close my email and then open it later on, Skype tells me I have more conversations (which I do NOT).
                  Tell Skype to get their act together!

                    • I am unable to delete contact: Make the Delete button in Contacts actually do something. I want to delete old contacts but can't

                      It would seem a good idea if the Delete button inthe contacts list actually allowed you to delete contacts that are no longer required.

                            Skype not showing upcoming messages.
                            Integrated Skype was not working fine in the older version, so I switched to Beta Version. I opened the chat and I cannot even see the new incoming messages.

                            • drafts

                              Cannot copy my drafts in same folder...
                              How do I duplicate the same draft email like I used to? have been through so many pages to try and figure it out. You should either give us the same tools as the older version or give us the choice to go back to the older version. This is costing me so much wasted time to manually type them out. Very frustrated!
