        • beta

          I hate this beta format and I can't back to the Outlook Classic. I should at least have the option if this continues I will change providers.

          • After Toggling to the Beta version and back to the old, Inbox rules disabled although still check

            I have an extensive list of "Inbox and sweep rules" in the old version of Outlook.com. They were all working well until I toggled the Outlook beta switch to have a look. I toggled it back to the old version and ever since ALL of my rules are inactive even though they are all checked and appear to be on. Please help

            • Needs to be more user-friendly

              I really can't stand the userability of the Outlook online, I love it at work as the Microsoft programme but on Google Chrome, it just doesn't work for me when writing emails. I can't find a way to pop out the email so I find it very distracting with all the advertisements and other elements on the page rather than focusing on the email itself. Plus, the way you have the conversations between emails it not user-friendly, I find it very difficult to read, and follow the chain of conversation. The general layout is not good - needs to be…

              • I can't figure out how to open email in its own window to see the whole page

                I need to be able to open the email in its own window to clearly see the whole page. Is this no longer possible?

                • Hate the bubbles with initials on it. I can see their name and it causes less emails to be displayed, meaning more scrolling for me.

                  Disable the initial bubbles. Or make them smaller. If you are going to use colours, let the user decide which colours to use. Black for advertising, blue for family, red for friend, etc. It would make it much easier to scroll through and find something you are looking for.

                  • when send a new email and click on "To" the conctacts drop down shows but no contacts are listed

                    1) When I click on new message and then click on the 'To' a drop down shows up that reads 'my contacts' but when I actually click on the 'contacts' tab I got nothing! No list of contacts no nothing! So unless you have a superb memory and can remember the name of every single person in your contacts list your pretty much sol on the ole short cut of finding them. You have to actually click on the 'people icon' which opens another tab, then scroll through all the names til you find or recognize the one you need.…

                    • the look and feel

                      The look and feel is just terrible. There is way too much going on. I would like to keep it simple just like with the current UI. If this beta doesnt change and goes to production I am definitely switching over to gmail

                        • Please let us choose between Beta and Classic

                          If you continue to be as enthusiastic about Beta as you appear to be, and refuse to scrap it (something that many people would be extremely happy about) please let us CHOOSE between Beta and Classic Outlook. You don't seem to realize/understand that, what to you are improvements, are to many people quite the opposite. The Beta is so confusing and busy and, to me, very stressful and highly unpleasant. I find the changes not only unnecessary, but extremely negative. Don't you guys have anything better to do than to come up with such annoyances? I just read on my…

                          • Keep Notes Section In Calendar Event

                            When making a calendar event in the current Outlook.com there is a section to add notes. This is missing in the Beta Calendar. Notes are visible in the Beta from entries made in the current Outlook.com Calendar but you are unable to edit them. I use the notes section to remind me of details about calendar events. The loss of this option would force me to use a different Calendar app/service.

                            • Go back to old hotmail version - NO outlook

                              I dont like neither of the Outlook templates, the beta or the actual version. I use to love my hotmail template with my marks emails appearing first and everything most simple. Now with Outlook if I don't see it on my iphone, some of thenew emails that aririves to me doesn't appear in my home page and I have to look for them on "search" and and if it was not enough the "send" botton stopped working a few days ago and they haven't solve it so I cants send emails if is not trhough te awful beta version.

                              • Interface is slow

                                Unfortunately the interface is too slow. I use other e-mail clientes and they are faster than Outlook. I love Outlook and have been using it for very long, but speed makes a difference when I have to send a lot of e-mails. Hopefully the next version will be faster.

                                  • Keep it simple.

                                    Email isn't for emojis & bright colors. Keep it clean and simple. There's too much noise everywhere else in the world.

                                    I use my personal email to communicate with friends and family. I don't need to be entertained and over stimulated by gimmicks. I just want to send a message and easily find the ones I've received.

                                    • Focused/Other inbox is TERRIBLE!

                                      It is so exasperating every single time I log in to have to check TWO folders just to get my messages! They serve NO purpose, and it's gotten to the point where I'm ready to give up my account entirely! PLEASE get rid of them or allow us to use settings to choose if we want this or not!
