Please allow us to get rid of this 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for it and it just takes up space.
Allow us to remove the 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for this and never will. Please allow us to delete it.
Thanks for your patience. We’re putting Hiding the “Conversation History” folder (and other empty, unused folders) under consideration, for possible Outlook.com improvements.

How do I add an RSS feed to the "RSS Feeds" folder?
Please get rid of the conversation history folder, or give us a way to make it invisible or whatever. I don`t want it in between "my folders".

I have deleted 2 folders (which were empty). Now the folders are being shown under Deleted Items. I tried to right click on the deleted folders, click Delete folder, and confirm my action. However, once I refresh the webpage, the folders were still being shown under Deleted Items.
This means I cannot delete any folder (and purge them from Deleted Items).
John Q. commented
please enable us to delete RSS Feeds folder.
it is of no use. if deleted, it appear again after refresh.
Can we add the ability to hide a folder from the folder list? For example, I don't want to see "Conversation History" - could you add a way to hide it?

I want to delete the rss folder in my email box, but it comes back every time...! I don't need this, please help!
At least allow us to delete or hide unnecessary folders that MS keeps foisting on us like "Clutter" and "Conversation History". These are utterly useless. It's quite easy to create folders and filters. Don't do it for me for something that I don't want.

If you accidentally create a new folder inside the 'Deleted Items' Folder and you delete the newly created sub-folder, the deleted folder still has the chevron indicating the there're sub-folder (even though there're no sub-folders inside the 'Deleted Items' folder. Ideally the icon of the 'Deleted Items' folder should change back to a trash can from a chevron.
I second that request!!! Please, let us delete that pesky folder!!!!
When i delete the folder "RSS Abonnements" it appears again after refreshing the page.
I would like to delete it permanently because i don't use this function. Same for "conversation history"

I have persevered with the new layout of Outlook beta but I just can't get along with the conversation history look.
I find it tricky to click on just the right part of the conversation to see the message content (as opposed to the contact details or options) and I am not clear where that particular part of the conversation is located.
For instance I got involved in a protracted discussion recently and couldn't easily find the reply that someone had sent to me because it was buried in the list of previous exchanges, but all of them had my initials as the header which meant trawling through the details.
I much prefer the layout of the business version of Outlook, with the reading pane option.
I don't use certain folders that Outlook insists must clog up the list of folders. For example, I have never used "RSS Subscriptions" and I never will. For these non-essential folders (I consider Inbox, Deleted, etc. as essential folders), I would very much like the option to either remove them from the list of folders or be able to delete them entirely. Adding every other folder as a favourite and collapsing the rest doesn't seem like a permanent solution to me.
Also, I would love the option to sort folders manually instead of just having the Outlook folders followed by personal folders in alphabetical order as my only option. What I've had to do in the past is rename folders so that they read as "1. Folder A, 2. Folder B, etc." so that they show up in a logical order, while still following the alphabetical sorting style Outlook uses. If this was something that could be improved upon with the new version, that would be fantastic.
I prefer to see all email history (one thread) in chronological order: latest first.
the conversation history is not optimal. It's dificult to read emails. It is not possible to open a mail in a seperate window

Allow users to delete the "RSS Subscriptions" folder located under Archive.
Let us pick which folders appear in the "move to" drop down, or use the n most recent folders like in the current release version. Half of the folders in the move to are folders I don't use, and RSS Feeds still appears on the list despite having deleted the folder.
Inbox, Junk Email, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Archive & Conversation History are the Default Folders.
Please keep these folders fixed together with icons (Conversation History doesn't have an icon) and then followed by the user created folders. I am not a fan of Conversation feature. I am sure you're working a feature "Conversations: Hide". When this feature is available then the Conversation History Folder can be hidden from the default folder list.
Problem Statement: For example, If I create a folder "Andy", then this folder sits on top of "Archive" folder. "Andy" folder does not have an ICON, where as Archive and Deleted Items has. The UI looks a bit odd when "Andy" sits in between "Deleted Items and Archive" folders.
Some E-Mails are not to be found even in the history / conversation list and different conversations are mixed together - that is not good.

Stick with the previous version. I remember the sales pitch when Outlook.com first rolled out -- an uncluttered, simple alternative to the busy interfaces of options like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. As someone who previously used Gmail, the Outlook.com interface was a breath of fresh air and I've never looked back.
This beta, on the other hand, is the very definition of the word "clutter." The groupings by day that can't be turned off are a visual distraction, particularly for those of us who only keep a small number of messages in our inboxes.
The "Favorites" grouping of folders is redundant and gets in the way of a clean, customized filing hierarchy (all of the recent additions like "conversation history" and other automatically generated folders pose this same problem -- I don't want my mail client telling me how to organize my messages).
I know there is an element of "keeping up with the Joneses" going on with this beta and a lot of previously launched functionality, but I'd like to say it would be great if there was any way to strip this all down in favor of the lightweight, easy-to-use, and visually inoffensive structure of Outlook.com's original incarnation.
I tried deleting a folder, but it appears again every time I log in to the mail. This was also happening in the normal version
