  1. forward multiple emails at once

    Use the selection buttons in the email list to select multiple emails, then Forward those selected items in one operation

    Versus having to open each, and Forward from the open email

  2. Crowded

    Because I view my browser in half-sized windows, this new format is extremely crowded. It's pretty much impossible to use.

  3. filter for category

    It would be good if you could:
    1. Filter your messages for Category
    2. Transfer messages in a particular Category to a Folder of the same name

  4. busy

    Inbox screen is too busy and its not intuitive on how to remove reading pane or adjust to single line "New" emails listing. Too much use of font sizing, bolding and multiple panels which just becomes distracting and cumbersome.

  5. Deleting spam mails should permanently delete them

    At the moment deleting mails within the spam folder moves them to the trash folder. If the spam mail keeps being unread, the trash folder gets marked as it contains an unread mail.
    In my opinion it would be better if deleting spam mails would permanently delete them (possibly with an option for undoing that deletion) or at least mark them as read.

  6. Snooze / Plan

    I really like the feature to plan/snooze emails in the mobile app of outlook. I'd be really great to see support in the web version as well as I use both of them. Having to switch to the mobile version only to snooze/plan an email is a bit cumbersome.

  7. not junk

    When I check the junk folder and I find something there is not junk, I click on the 'Not junk' button but instead of moving the email to my inbox straight away, I have to select the 'Not junk' option from the pull-down menu. It should be a 1-step process, not a 2-step process.

  8. sideways scroll

    When I open an email, the window is too small to view the entire message and I'm having to scroll right then down then left then right... super inconvenient.

  9. Business needs clear, listed. Old version needs better formation. But this Beta is disaster. It is more complicated.

  10. Each email a single line

    Don´t show the attached file in the inbox, or try to show it in a smaller icon. I like my inbox with each email in a single line.

  11. category folders

    category folders missing to assign emails to certain folders by default. The old Hotmail had this and made life so easy. Without it I will stop using Hotmail/outlook all together.

  12. When moving email to folders. You can't choose from your full list of folders> Only a partial choice list pops up.

    I stopped using beta today because the way the move email to folders is set
    up. After you click on the move icon to move or save emails to folders, only a few named folders options pop up. Beta wants you to type in search box the folder your looking for to move items. I can't remember all the folders with specific names so it won't work for me.

  14. Email strings are confusing

    1. When you reply to an email within a string, you can't tell if it gets sent. Nor does it show up in your sent items.

    2: It is particularly confusing if you send email to a group of people, and then you start a string from that when one person replies to you. It is confusing if you are replying to that one person or to the group,

  15. No "copy email address" option - WHATSUPWITHAT?

    No easily-found option to copy email addresses WITHOUT adding them to your stupid address book - don't use it - don't want it!! Obviously, your programmers don't have to use what they design?
    MAKE IT USER-FRIENDLY!!!!!!!!
    Neither beta nor the current system allows us this COMMONLY-included option!
    But, since your programmer's now (and for decades now!) have zero vision...!!
    Quite some time back, you had a winning online app...NOW...you are constantly changing things THAT DON'T NEED CHANGING!!!!!!
    IF IT WORKS...DON'T FIX IT!!!!!!!!
    DUU-UUHH!!!!!!

  16. whole email not visible in side panel

    When you click on an email, the whole email width wise is not visible in the side box, which is irritating when you have to scroll left and right as well as up and down to read an email!

  17. too big and not much better

    Everything is too big, we can't see a lot of mail. It's too complicated and it's not better than before.It is complicated to find the mail you are looking for; It is impossible to have an overview on a page.

  19. Stop message grouping.

    I hate the way messages are grouped under a single message. It is just like Apple mail now. If I click on a message I want just that message. If this is the new mail I would seriously quit using MSN.

  20. Background Color

    Ok, but please give options to change background color, it's too white, it hurts the eyes.

    Thanks.
