  1. Can't see the complete email; no way to double click and enlarge the page. Hate it!!

    Make it so we can see the entire email. Can't see the whole thing and it's frustrating

  2. Cool Things from old version no more... :_(

    I cannot do ADVANCED SEARCH, that means specifically , that I want to search Text inside every message and not just the date...the date?! and thats the first thing someone don´t remeber again!

    And where it is the option where I can see the List of Mails in ONE column?
    that for me was clearly...with 3 windows at the same time makes me crazy...please give the option...again...

  3. html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load

    most of the time html email fails to render properly. Graphics don't load and there are NO links to add senders to safe senders list or to show graphics. So - back to non-beta I go.

  4. Deleting spam mails should permanently delete them

    At the moment deleting mails within the spam folder moves them to the trash folder. If the spam mail keeps being unread, the trash folder gets marked as it contains an unread mail.
    In my opinion it would be better if deleting spam mails would permanently delete them (possibly with an option for undoing that deletion) or at least mark them as read.

  6. search

    The search function has taken a step back. Yes it's nice that it's just a single search box, but, without the ability to filter, it's useless. This is bad enough that I'd forego the entire new design. Either allow other conditions in the search string, such as "folder:saved" or put the filters back on the navigation bar so that folder, dates, etc. can be used to filter search results.

  7. Moving email to folders, cannot scroll the "move to . . ." folder list

    When moving an email to a folder by highlighting it and selecting "move to . . ." from the drop down list, you cannot scroll through the folder list, but have to search. This is inconvenient when you only have a vague memory of which folder you need to move the email into

  8. Poor feedback format

    Please don't make me search over 700 possible problems to attempt to find what I'm looking for. If you really wanted feedback you would have actually done anything other than this lunacy.

  9. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Please reinstate advanced searching. I can't imagine how I will get to a specific date over a year ago.

  10. Visually awful, especially on small devices

    I have tried this new look and find it awful from a visual aspect. The smaller the screen, the harder it is to read what is on the screen due to the increased number of vertical columns. Some search aspects are improved, but I would not subscribe or change to this new format.
    If the new format is enforced, I may be forced, after 20+ years as an Outlook user, to find an alternative email supplier

  12. Rename it

    Let's go back to calling this Hotmail. Having a product named Outlook and another called Outlook.com seems to be confusing your search engine.

  14. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Can you please put back That when you click the "go back" arrow in the search box, it puts you back where you left off. Instead of putting you back at the top of your search thus having to find where you were by scrolling back through what you already went through.

  15. make search bar a universal search for both contacts and use bing to find local businesses etc

    On my android phone, my phone app lets me search my contacts but also utilise web search to find details on local businesses so I can call them directly.
    It would be great if the search bar could leverage Bing/Cortana to not just locate contacts, but also search business details, allowing you to contact them directly rather than searching the internet manually and copying a contact email address into the email.

  17. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Youve created categories again in the new beta, however once you have emails in categories I cannot find any way to search or access the emails in those categories, they arent in the left hand side and there doesnt appear to be any way to search filtering via category, so whats the point?

  18. collapse by date

    In previous version it was possible to collapse or expand the inbox based on date (e.g. yesterday, two weeks ago, last month, older etc..). Now i just have an endless string of inbox and if i want an email from 3 weeks ago, i have to scroll down way too much! And yes, i do not organise my inbox with folder as i find the search function useful enough to retrive any email. But in previous version my inbox could be collapsed so i did not end up with a string of endless messages.

    Please can you enable this function…

  19. Search for the FOLDER itself. Hyperlink to containing Folder when viewing email.

    A. Need a way to search for the Folder itself (for people using LOTS of folders)

    B. When on an email from a search, clearly show containing Folder Name with an active hyperlink to the folder.

  20. When moving email to folders. You can't choose from your full list of folders> Only a partial choice list pops up.

    I stopped using beta today because the way the move email to folders is set
    up. After you click on the move icon to move or save emails to folders, only a few named folders options pop up. Beta wants you to type in search box the folder your looking for to move items. I can't remember all the folders with specific names so it won't work for me.
