  1. Jumpy screen

    I'm switching back to the old version. The screen is just to jumpy. Every time I click on something, an email, a folder, using the search bar, the items on the screen have to jump/load like 5 or 6 times and it gives me a headache.

  3. Missing folder

    There is a huge bug in Hotmail. In the non-beta version, a folder of mine has gone missing (it was NOT deleted!!). When I switch to the beta version, the folder appears in the folder list. I'm not sure what's going on with Hotmail, but this should not be happening.

  4. Search result is not chronological

    If I search something I want the emails to be listed chronological.
    This is not the case at the moment.

  5. Attachments cannot be downloded in Beta version.

    I was not able to download attachments from my mails. So I switched to the older version and I was able to do so in a sec. I tried downloading to the computer and saving to the oneDrive etc. From the mail itself, the drop down to download, preview etc was not also working.

  6. I want the ability to turn off "Suggested Contacts" when I start typing in the TO field.

    Most of the emails I send are one-offs to business addresses and customer service. I do not want outlook.com to remember/suggest any of addresses to which I have sent email that are not in my contacts...you took away this preference to not remember which used to be in "Advanced Privacy Settings."

  8. In search results get rid of "top results" section

    When I search I want only one list of results so I can follow conversation with one person quickly. Top results is useless as I don't know what is missing there. I want all messages, excluding deleted folder, sorted by date with the most recent on top.

  11. 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

  13. Email search feature non-functional

    Currently the search feature is non-functional. When something is entered into the SEARCH block, Outlook.com says that it's "Searching . . ." but no results are ever shown. THIS IS IMPORTANT - NO WAY TO FIND PREVIOUS EMAILS FROM THE SAME SENDER.

  14. 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.

  17. 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

  20. filter for category

    It would be good if you could:
    1. Filter your messages for Category
    2. Transfer messages in a particular Category to a Folder of the same name
