  2. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Not getting email from safe sender

    Not getting email from safe sender. I've added them as a contact, as a favorite, and have them in safe senders list yet I get no email from them. I know that they're sending it because my wife does get emails from this address and they have my email in the TO field.

  15. 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…

  17. verify

    I cannot log onto outlook.com because it wants to verify who I am by texting me a pass code. I do not own a cellphone so cannot receive the code. Therefore I am locked out. All Microsoft online support could suggest is for me to go out and buy a cellphone. There has to be another way to verify. This issue also means I cannot send any emails using Microsoft Mail. Please fix issue.
