I like the mode with the Reading Pane off
You turned it on for me... can you let me turn it off?
The Reading Pane takes up too much space on the right, and I want my previews to show up in an ordered way (right now it might be a little hard to tell which word belongs to which thing).
Thanks for trying the Outlook.com beta! We’re glad to inform that you can turn the Reading Pane off yourself by taking these steps:
1. Go to Settings (you should see the Quick Settings in the side pane)
2. Reading pane > Hide (it’s a radio button)
If this is the mode you prefer, go right ahead and personalize your Outlook.com that way!

I need the sender info column to be much more narrow. I want to adjust it to be much smaller than now allowed in the beta or pre beta. I don't want to have to make my Edge window so wide just so I can read the actual email
The Old version is very slow and the Beta version show the message in very narrow pane
I can not read the mail at once. Have always go left and right and left and right. I see it not instantly it is really bad.

I think the inbox looks too busy. I prefer my messages listed in a line across the page that I can quickly scan. Now you need to scroll more. I don't need to see big dots.
In the old version of outlook, you could make the inbox pane thinner, allowing the email to take up more room. If this isn't allowed the email won't be fully viewable on smaller screens
I prefer the original service form of hotmail.com, because this way, it is too difficult.

We have a small space to write/answer an email. Bad changes. Last version was simple, light and clear.
