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.
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

I would like to be able to delete the Archive and RRS Feeds folder. I really dislike the folders as it triggers my OCD.
It is not appropriate or appealing to have MS adding folders to my folders list without my permission. I want this folder deleted asap.
I don't like all that kind of email history pack, I can't even find the current email I'm trying to answer to. Keep things simple, I don't want my emails all stacked within an all over the place conversation history! the history remains stacked like that whether I click hide or unhide. Then I have conversation emails over and below, finding the current email is difficult.
I do not use Conversation History, Archives, and some other Folders but I can't delete all this unnecessary clutter.
Please implement an option to disable/hide unwanted folders in the left panel. For example the "RSS-Folder". This would clean up the view if I can decide what to show.
Luca Spolidoro commented
why are you adding folders that are not useful in the first place?
Please, I want to have the freedom to delete a folder that I don't use. Like the RSS folder or the history of e-mails. Every time I try to delete them it just come back. It's annoying af.

Another option could be to customize the toolbar as we want. Then one can remove the archive from the toolbar.

Allow us to delete folders which we don't need or didn't ask for.

Yes!!! This folder keeps coming back and I despise it. Please remove permanently!
I want delete things like "favorites" and "clutter." I don't use these and they are just in the way. I want to create all of my folders. The only default folders should be "inbox, deleted items," and "drafts." All others should be optional. Once again, Microsoft does not allow the user to properly customize the experience.
