1) When I click on new message and then click on the 'To' a drop down shows up that reads 'my contacts' but when I actually click on the 'contacts' tab I got nothing! No list of contacts no nothing! So unless you have a superb memory and can remember the name of every single person in your contacts list your pretty much sol on the ole short cut of finding them. You have to actually click on the 'people icon' which opens another tab, then scroll through all the names til you find or recognize the one you need. So much fun.
2) Attachments no longer show up when you print the actual email that they were sent with. You'll love this....I have to hit print screen, open word, paste, then print it and attach to the email I printed if I want to keep a record of what the file name was that I downloaded and saved in the job file folders. HOORAY.
3) And the option to COPY an email from one folder to another has GONE BYE BYE as well. And NO ONE at outlook seems to know how to fix that one. I've had so many 'chats' with them and all I get is "we're sorry you're having this difficulty" and that's pretty much the end of any type of resolution offered.
So...thanks outlook for making my tasks take twice as long as they used to take and for the hours I've had to spend googling around hoping to find some way to fix all these things your ace designers decided to change or do away with.
I think you should change your name to 'LOOKOUT' so your users will be constantly aware that at any moment a millennial might say you know what...I don't like the send button being at the top anymore darn it....let's move it to a completely new location so the users have to hunt for it now....and let's move it to the completely opposite location of where the "new message" button is....because why would you want to have the 'new message' button close to the 'send' button...it's exhausting trying to keep up with some of the stupid things you all do!

Hey, sorry about that! You ran into a bug that affected anyone who tried to click the To button when composing an email. This bug has since been fixed.
Thanks for reaching out!
Currently all my pinned items appear first. This does not seem to happen in the new outlook.com email beta42 votes
First off, thank you for using Outlook.com and for taking the time to provide feedback!
I just wanted to take a minute and respond and let you know that pinned items do in fact work in the new Outlook.com experience.
When pinning an item you will see it at the top of the view.
Hope this helps, if you have any other feedback, please feel free to keep it coming!
This appears to be totally useless. Trying to change my password, simple question, no answer, no help!0 votes
