Email search feature non-functional
Currently the search feature is non-functional. When something is entered into the SEARCH block, Outlook.com says that it's "Searching . . ." but no results are ever shown. THIS IS IMPORTANT - NO WAY TO FIND PREVIOUS EMAILS FROM THE SAME SENDER.
Why would you break such a vital function? Did anyone even give any thought at all to this "update". If they claim to, they should be fired for incompetence.
The search function on the new look Outlook is entirely nonfunctional. Whatever term I enter, all I get is "Searching......" with nothing found, even when I can clearly see emails in my inbox with content or senders that match the search term. This essentially makes outlook useless to me and unless the problem is rectified I will need to switch email providers.
When I use search function with the filter on to show Deleted Items only, this filter does not work. The results bring up items that are not only in Deleted Items, but in Inbox (and potentially everywhere else) as well. Please fix this.

I use outlook because I have to for work, and the search function is almost useless. When I search for a specific word, like a last name, and the function NEVER turns up all the emails with that word. It consistently leaves out emails (usually the one I'm searching for), so I end up manually searching for the correct email. Can someone please fix this? It's not that hard to create a decent search function that can actually help you find what you're looking for. Also, this is the worst experience I've ever had for leaving feedback on a product. Not only is User Voice difficult to find (perhaps you could link to it from outlook.com) it's hard to navigate once you do find it, and there's no guarantee you'll get a response. All over, I don't understand why Microsoft can't make more user-friendly products for consumers.
Your "Search Engine" doesn't' work!!! I could say some words, but I prefer not to. But you REALLY NEED to fix your search engine!!!!
search does not works, it just keep searching.........
