  3. Reading Pane is Too Large

    Reading pane is too large when located at the bottom. Limited to 12 lines of Inbox messages only. I'd prefer to be able to get at least a 50% split between messages and the reading pane.

  5. Messages disappearing from (display of) folder

    Messages disappearing from display of folder

    Occasionally a message will disappear from the view I see of my folder.
    - I cannot see the message anymore.
    - If I open a new window and new email session, the message is still missing.
    - However if I search for the email, it is shown there in the folder!
    - I can click on it from the search results and read it.
    - It still does not show in the folder.

    NB This was triggered by the following actions:
    - Open the email (before it disappeared)
    - Click Reply to all
    -…

  7. Cannot see all the e-mails in inbox

    The new update makes it impossible to view old e-mails. I can't get to the bottom of my e-mails. I first have to delete some mails to see the rest of the list.

  9. Congratulations effect prevents selection

    The effect that appears over text like "congratulations" prevents text selection. Aesthetics shouldn't break functionality.

  10. email

    The "move to" prompt for moving an email to a folder does not allow you to display all the folders by scrolling down as it did with the old version. You now must go to left margin then go back to "move to" and search.

  12. change column width

    We should be able to change the width of the columns in the message view - your default crops most email addresses from/to any organisation with a long name.

    We should also be able to customise the columns displayed, and sort emails by any selected column.

  17. Want the newer version beyond Beta

    I was offered a trial of a newer format than Beta yesterday. It was not convenient for me at the time, but I was going to try it today, 80% of the people to whom it was offered had responded. How can I get back to that page and accept the trial?

  18. How to stop desktop alerts?!

    Somehow, by asking a question on an Outlook forum, I seem to have activated desktop alerts. DO. NOT. WANT. THEM. But no online instructions have told me how to get rid of them (let alone find the "file" tab that's allegedly the first step of doing so). Please make this more evident!!!

  20. Composing an email

    Absolutely hate the way you have changed Outlook. I just tried to write a new email and when I use the enter key to move down to a new paragraph the cursor stays where it is. I don't know why you have to always keep altering things when they were working ok to start with.!!!
