React to window width. Be a responsive web page.
Not good if you want to view in snap mode or on smaller widths as you've not included a responsive design.
To actually use some features you have to view the website and on smaller devices it makes sense to cater for this.
Thank you for your feedback on the Outlook.com beta! We are considering a number of ways we should change the design based on screen size. We will reply back when we have an update.
Totally agree. Whichever display option is selected, it should fit whatever window width is convenient to the user.
Absolutely agree with this one. I frequently have multiple windows on my screen. Requiring horizontal scrolling on a snapped half screen is just wrong. It has to be able to fit on that at the very least.

It definitely needs a responsive design. This is 2017 after all! I have to side-scroll to see the "my account" button even though there's plenty of empty space in that row for those buttons to move over and fit within the window size.

Implementing this at least on the panel on the right would be a good start.
The panel could hide when the width of screen is smaller than a certain value (laptop / non-maximized window) showing only the email or folder (if no email was selected).
It would be displayed when the width is bigger (tv screen / maximized), showing both folder and email.
Unless the panel is disabled, of course.
Also, make the "close" email available even with the panel on.

Agree based on what is rendered it should be possible, with: 100% would help the rest can be like it is

The part that shows the body of the emails should regulate according to the width of each one, just like the application that regulates the body of the content.

I'm using the new Outlook.com beta and there is a problem: it isn't 'responsive', and by that I mean, when I put the Windows 10 mail app in split-screen, the app adjusts accordingly. The new Outlook.com beta should do the same! Side-by-side split screen helps with productivity and multitasking and it's very important the new Outlook.com be optimized for this
