  2. Inbox and scrolling

    Lots of problems with "scrolling"...this one is -- Email inbox--With scrolling so slow, I should AT LEAST be able to scroll with the page down/up buttons but there is no response...I am left with clicking for the down arrow in the scroll bar, over & Over & OVER & OVER & OVER.....!!! with only a line or few at a time!
    ALSO, when use quick-link icon to delete email, I have to wait 5-10 seconds, PER EMAIL that I delete, before it will show me the list of emails in the inbox, so I can continue. Really...THIS is what you…

  4. 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.

  5. Attaching a photo in an email message.

    In old Outlook we used to be able to move an attachment (photo) to the body of an email. I don't find that option in the new Outlook. Please bring it back.

  7. Select checkbox

    The Master checkbox used to only select what was on my screen, this made it easy for me to clear batches of email quickly. Now, the checkbox selects everything in a folder, even if I've not had a chance to see it. This is not helpful at all.

  9. Deleted Items Folder - Mass vs Selective Delete of Items

    Deleted Items Folder - Need to be able to delete items by the page by clicking the Deleted Items button - available in previous version. New version selects all mail in Deleted Items folder to be deleted. I now have to select emails individually to delete - wasting my time.

  12. Unable to move a folder out of a folder

    The folders in the email tap: I was able to move a folder out of another folder. In last years outlook.com webmail, I was able to drag a folder to the folders to bring out a folder from a folder. I am unable to do that in the new outlook webmail. I can drag a folder into another folder. However, the new outlook.com webmail doesn't have a reverse.

  13. Replying to email

    Can't reply to an open email while it is open. I had to CLOSE the email to reply. Cumbersome. I HATE your updates so far. Bring back the previous version.

  14. I would like to be able to see more messages at a glance in my inbox

    Each upgrade of Outlook seems to have the side effect (I assume it's a side effect and not intentional because that would appear to be stupid) of reducing the number of emails I can see at a glance in my inbox. This greatly reduces its functionality for me. Why have so much unused space?
    Like many people on this site, I also object to being forced to accept this change (and all the regular changes, it seems, for change's sake) without being asked or given an alternative.

  15. Printing Issue

    Print stopped working since last week. Preview displays a single blank page and prints it blank as well. I have to copy-paste into Word to print out my messages.

  16. Mail > Subscription

    Hotmail/Outlook- Mail > Subscriptions > I can not delete newsletters I did not subscribe to
    Under my settings>mail>subscriptions - there is a ton of newsletters/junk email/spam that I never added and can not delete. I don't know how they got there and how can i remove them.

    Image

    No matter what I've tried to delete these it doesn't work - spammers latched themselves this way?

  17. font

    Why am I seeing a new font (condensed) in the left pane now? Ugly, you're ruining this product.

  19. Can't add new people when replying to email

    I wanted to reply to a friend and add a new contact. I click TO: and get an insanely long list of contacts that I'd have to scroll through. Usually, you type the first letter of the person's email address or name and you'd jump to that part of the contacts list, but my new person doesn't appear. This beta version is terrible. The interface is too busy with ridiculous "charms" and icons. I can't find messages. The calendar is a disaster. I have reverted back to the "classic" view. Why can't the developers leave well enough alone? Why do…

  20. Delete Multiple Emails

    It would be nice to be able to select an email at the top of the page then select and email at the bottom of the page and then delete all emails between the 2 that were selected. I have over 12,000 emails in my "deleted items" folder. I need to get rid of a lot of them, but not all. Selecting each email individually is going to take way too long.
