  1. 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.

  2. Allow search in Rules

    Make rules searchable. I use lots of rules and have a ton of them. I would love to be able to search my rule set to better manage it.

  6. 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...

  7. font

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

  8. 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.

  9. No option to delete attachment/file and the email it's attached to from Files section

    No option to delete attachments or link to the email they come from in the file section - should have option to delete attachment/file and the email it's attached to - thus avoiding dodgy spam/potential viruses

  10. 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.

  11. Please provide option to STOP automatic bulleting

    I'm tired of this assuming that I want bulleting/formatting when I create my emails. Please provide a way to turn OFF or STOP automatic bulleting.

    Thank you.

  12. 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…

  14. blocking option

    Received email from Outlook Moderator regarding a solution for blocking unwanted emails. Good that there's some sort of solution however it's not the best one. One can make a mistake by clicking on the email rather than "right" click to get to the option to block. Please just put the "block" option back onto the menu bar. This way there would not be any chance of opening the junk email by mistake thus eliminating the exposure to a virus. Thanks.

  16. Folders ... Folders ... Folders !

    More the time goes, more you add folders without giving the user the ability to inhibit/control them. How about in the Advanced settings, a section specially for the Folder Settings ? ... would be definitely great. Thank you for your understanding.

  17. contacts, contacts and contacts

    Open Contacts (People? Persons? In Dutch: Personen) in Outlook (via outlook.live.com).
    Under All Contacts you see a random list of some contacts.
    It does not contain all contacts.
    Under Proposed Contacts you see another random list of contacts.
    It does not contain the rest of contacts.
    But there is a third but hidden list of contacts, which contain ALL contacts. These contacts are shown if you fill in some letters.

    A lot of contacts are shown wrong. Name and emailaddress does not match.

    It is a shame, this product.

  20. New Search bar location doesn't work for me.

    I really don't like the new location of the Search bar in Outlook. I wish we had more control over these things. Not every idea is a good one and Microsoft's propensity for trying to control everyone's user experience is what drives users to Apple.
