  1. Beta version Very unorganized compared to the regular outlook. Make it better if updating

    If you want to change Outlook,which I think is at the moment the most organized email to use. Make it more easy to use. make it so I don't have to search in drop down menus to find where I block spam. And improve spam filter. If I get 50 different Spam emails from "Anna" within a week,but each uses a slightly different email address,make it easier for us to block them all etc. Have a CLEAN and easy to use and Intuitiv UI,where everything is obvious.

  3. Need Search in the Tasks folder, or a Search filter -- to select only Tasks

    Need to Search "only Tasks". Idea-1 -- add the Search box in the Tasks folder/window, and limit that Search to Tasks. Idea-2 -- In the main Search box, add a Filter to "show only Tasks" in the results.

    When I Searched, then clicked on one of the "Tasks", it did indeed Filter by Tasks. However, this is not obvious.

  4. how can I add an existing contact (in people section outlook beta) into a particular folder.Just move a mail to a folder or category

    If I a particular contacts is searched from search tab , then the option of moving it to a separate folder is missing. TO move one need to manually locate the contact into the folder , then only that options comes. Please add an option to categories contacts (like Office, Frieds) just we can do it in mail.

  5. New feedback

    Beta is Horrible

    My account refreshed itself last night, and I was greeted with the

    message "welcome to the new Outlook!" And there was no way to

    toggle back to the classic look.

    It's horrible.

    The page is actually difficult to look at. The senders' names and

    subjects used to be bolded to indicate new messages. Now, the

    subjects are bolded, but the senders' aren't.

    Why are there little icons and graphics all over the page? They

    are completely unnecessary and just make it cluttered.

    There is a "Favorite" folders section. Why? I don't need help

    finding my own folders.…

  7. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    I did not like the new email organization, it got extremely polluted. It is difficult to search and read emails. It's too bad to move.

  8. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Unlike the previous version of Outlook.com, there is either no way to get directly back to a searches filtered view or it is not obvious. I used to be able to hit the escape key, go back (Alt+Left Arrow), or select the Search Header in the Navigation Pane to go back and see exactly where I was in the review of search results.
    Please correct this or teach me how it now works.

  9. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Before you changed the email system, each email identified in a search said which folder it was in (i.e. Inbox, Deleted, Drafts, etc.).
    This was extremely useful.
    Please fix the new system so that emails located in a search say which folder they're in.
    Thanks.

  10. Replying to emails

    I really do not like the Beta version of replying to emails. When I receive a return email, I can rarely find my email to them, especially if it is a long chain?! I spend time searching for my emails.
    I also do not like the tiny space you are given when replying to emails.

  12. please keep mails on non-outlook accounts available in my computer, do not move them to 'search' and 'online search'.

    I use non-outlook (pop3) mail accounts e.g. arie@schaberg.nl. Messages older than a month are moved from my computer and must be found using 'search'. There, just a few older mails are found (about 2 months older). Older yet mails must be found using 'online search' (I use no online storage like a cloud). There older mails (e.g. august 2017) are found. But I cannot move them to my computer. And Mail shuts itself down after 30 seconds.
    This really needs improvement.

  14. Close email when selecting the the folder

    It would be good to have back the functionality on closing the selected email if we click the folder that contains the email. I don't like to have opened email all the time and right now I have to select a different folder and get back to the folder I was to not to have an email opened.

  17. Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee

    Search feature should default to showing all messages without having to choose addressee. As it is I have to select an address each time, which is pretty idiotic, since in 99 cases out of 100 I want to search among all messages in a folder. The option should be there, but the default should be that search doesn't need it specified.

  19. Search bar

    I need an option to disable the "Delete button" from the search bar, sometimes I delete some contacts by mistake and that's annoying. Thanks.

  20. Finding a mail

    Emails who's been archived should be in bright color to help us not delete them by accident when we are searching throught our emails OR make a button option to keep every mails we want to keep indestructible.
