  2. lost folder

    I tried to move one of my email folders up by a few folders, however, instead of moving, the folder disappeared.

    I assumed that the "lost" folder had been dropped into one of the other folders as a sub folder, but I have looked in each and every one of my folders and the "lost" folder is not in any of them.

    The "lost" folder contains emails that I have amassed over a few years which I refer to when I need to. I don't know any of the specific emails that are in the lost folder to be able…

  3. I can't see my emails

    I can't see my emails - only emails from the last 2 weeks. If I search, I can find them but I need to be able to acces all, not just 30. It is impossible to use now

  7. 'Message can't be displayed at the moment'

    Emails won't display in Hotmail. It says to check your internet connection or try again later. It has been like this for hours. I NEED to get to one email that was sent to me as it relates to a job. This is VERY annoying.

  8. facebook

    Why did a reply to an email I sent addressed me by my Facebook handle? I replied to that email that was sent to my hotmail account. How did he know my Facebook handle? This has never happened before. I never signed in or linked my email account with Facebook. This recent incident happened after my hotmail was changed to this new Outlook interface without my permission. This is a serious privacy issue.

  11. Inbox reading pane flashes on and off!

    The reading pane contents continuously flash on and off which is very annoying. I'm using Windows XP and had the same problem with the beta version. For that reason I stopped using it and want the old version back! Also while the inbox list refreshes the top add delete button moves over so that the add can accidentally be clicked on. Also a very annoying little trick.

  14. Please restore the option to Copy emails to more than one folder.

    Where is the option when Moving emails to Copy them to another folder? That is an essential feature! Please restore this critical feature asap, otherwise users have to forward emails to themselves to be able to file a second copy in another folder.

  15. Flagged & Pinned Icons More Noticeable

    Is it possible to make the Flag and Pin Icons more visible with some more color similar to the previous version?

    Currently the icons are just an outline, however the previous version showed the icons filled with a color, for example, of red, making it more visible.

    Thank you.

  20. verification is a pain

    Why do I have to "verify" my account THREE times before I can send an email!!!!
    Twice to even get into the account and a third to send the email! Unfortunately, I entered the six digit number from where the text came from, then tried to reenter the four digit code, not realizing that it was now requesting a new phone number to send another code to. I tried reentering another phone number for a new code and it tells me that I have exceeded my attempts for verification and to try again tomorrow!!!
    I will never set up another…
