  1. I just want to see my mail

    I want to open my email and it just be there, in the order received. No ads in my mailbox! That's just insane. Put them in banners on the top or side like you used to. I don't like how only 5 emails show up. I used to hate how Gmail looked but I prefer it a million times better than all the "Focused" and segregation stuff that comes default. Make them options, not default.

  3. Blocked Senders & Domain - Skip Junk & Trash

    Rather than sending blocked senders and blocked domains to the junk folder, let's have their emails skip the junk folder, skip the trash (deleted items) folder and have those specific emails just disappear into oblivion.

  6. Navigation Pane Rows (Favorites and folders) too widely spaced

    Please add an option to remove the blank lines between rows in the navigation pane favorites and folders. That's how it used to be. It is frustrating to continually have to scroll up and down when twice as many folders could fit.

  9. Original message "automatically included" but not displayed

    Original message is not displayed to me while typing my reply (even in raw text mode). How am I supposed to even "reply" to it if I can't see it while so doing?

    Please give us the possibility to go back to the old version, as long as the new one has such defects...

  11. 30 day passcode

    I want the 30 day wait for password change removed from my account. i dont need any security except my own security. Can't stand it beyond belief. Exempt my account from any 30 day wait. I dont appreciate anyone sweating my security except my self. Hate co dependency. Leave my account alone unless I invite you for assistance with something I cant resolve myself.

  12. Keep outlook classic

    I love outlook - and prefer it over google mail - for its classic, clear and business look. It was professional and not confusing like Google mail. Outlook, keep your strong identity. Don't be Coca Cola trying to copy Pepsi.

  15. new window for composing emails

    I am still getting accustomed to the changes.

    One feature that has changes from the previous version is being able to create new emails in a new window. I noticed that capability has disappeared. Now, I click New message and the blank message shows up in my reading pane. If I wish to edit it or add content from another email, I have to save as a draft, locate what I want to copy, go to drafts, then open that draft in a new window,

    It would be handy to get the capability back to compose new emails in a…

  16. Reading Pane Issues

    Here are a list of Issues tested on both Mac (Safari) and Windows (IE):

    - Unable to reduce the Inbox Pane (second pane) below a certain size, which would result in the Reading Pane being too small. (Previously, there was more flexibility in adjusting the various panes to make a larger Reading Pane)

    - Advertisement on the right is taking up too much space, which adds to the problem of the small Reading Pane

    - Reading pane is now auto shrinking email messages to fit, making messages too small to read. (Previously, it does not, and simply allows for horizontal…

  19. 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…
