Ads take up too much space
I also have an Office 365 Home subscription... can that remove ads for me?
Update January 2018:
We have confirmed that all users whose email addresses have an Office 365 subscription attached to it are getting the ad-free Outlook.com experience. We encourage anyone who would like the ad-free Outlook.com experience to sign up for an Office 365 subscription, which comes with a plethora of additional perks and benefits.
In addition to this, users who would like to have a larger reading surface may find the Reading Pane Off/Hidden mode more preferable. This setting may be found in the Quick Settings panel, under Reading Pane > Hide.

As soon as I received an ad in my inbox, and could not remove or delete it, I turned of the beta. I hate ad's! What waste of time for me! Very irritating!

I don't like that I can't increase the size of my message window. It is cut off on the right by the ads.

Do not want ads on screen, makes email difficult to read, can I delete ads?
Ann Frankish commented
I ask again: what about the people who have paid full price for Microsoft Office on their PC?

the ads are as bad as spam email!
If I move an email to a different folder, I do not want the next email to automatically open. Let me choose which to open next.
Let me move an email to a different folder without having to open it.
When I want to move an email to a different folder and type in one or two letters, I want the program to assume that they are the first letters in the title of the folder, not something in the middle.
I want to see the address of an email by hovering the cursor over the title without opening it. This for any folder, including the in box.
If I want to look for a specific email but don't remember the title but do remember the date, how to I go to that date? I may have missed it, but I don't see any way to do it. Having one long column is the pits for a search like that. Pages like you used to have is better.
Bring back the advanced search for finding an email. I may remember part of the title or an attachment but don't know how to look that up in your current system, if it's possible to do that. I'm still a novice with computers and may not see something that a geekier person may catch right away.
Can an email chain be separated into its component parts? There are times that I don't want the chain.
How do I easily contact you without going through a bunch of steps to leave a comment, suggestion, or report a problem?
Thank you for this opportunity to leave these comments.
Really? 1/6 of the screen as WASTED space (thinks that I (customer) will never use) I am talking about that BIG area for advertisements.
Would you like to know why people are migrating to Gmail? It's free... and ad-free by default. Good luck, Microsoft.

Hello Philip at Outlook,
You might want to tell your support people this as I received the below response after following your instructions:
Thank you for contacting Outlook.com Premium Support.
The ad-free outlook feature is only applicable to Office 365 Home/Personal users. Office 365 university doesn't have this feature included.
Outlook.com Premium Support.
why there is advertisement in email?
On the comment about having to wait:
We just noticed that the overall code to remove ads for Office 365 University subscribers wasn't triggered properly. If you are in this situation, *much apologies*. We have a code fix that will be coming in a few weeks, or if you would like to have this resolved sooner:
1. Go to https://premium.outlook.com
2. Sign In
3. Contact Us to file a ticket
Our support engineer will manually set a few things for you if you're an Office 365 University and make things right. Sorry for the extra wait!

Can't read emails, they're all squished between ads and listing. What's the point.
please try to remove advertisments...

I have an Office 365 subscription and no ads appears to me. It started rolling out to users some weeks ago... I think that you need to be more patient.

I have an Office 365 Student Subscription and still get ads. Who can I contact to resolve this issue?
But what about the people who have paid full price for Microsoft Office on their PC?
Thanks for your efforts. Unfortunately, that's not the way it works, unless I'm a bit clumsy. If I hide the Reading Pane the ads remains. What I would like not to have to read nor see are the ads. Many thanks in advance. Rosa

Wrong. Because I have an Office 365 subscription, and I still get advertisements.

Why am I getting ads I have Microsoft Office 365.
