Bulky interface - text, icons and panels too thick wasting space for actual content.
In ALL folders, messages are far too widely spaced, so too few messages appear on screen. The number of messages simultaneously visible could easily be doubled -- AND SHOULD BE.
Header and text borders too thick. Reduces amount of emails that can be seen and generally takes up way too much room on my screen with nothing but empty space that can't be adjusted. Only way to make it "better" is to reduce page font size in browser settings, but text borders still too thick and tiny text is hard to read.
Clicking on message and scrolling, then clicking on another message makes the new message scrolled all the way to the bottom. Next message clicked on should be displayed from start again.
For some inexplicable reason we can't block spam using wildcards in the email address we want to block. Outlook just says the format is wrong.
So now I have to manually click on each one I want to block, even when they all come from the same place such as: "*-and-*" in the address. What a pain.

new one sucks, new beta even worse since it wastes space and takes up way more screen for my emails than necessary, i see fewer of them on screen
Please, add the slider back for the old outlook. The new outlook UI has terrible layout resulting in wasted space. It's disgusting. Please, add the slider back. I abhor you for forcing this where less data is visible. The old design was beautiful. It had lovely graphics, professionally designed, and didn't look like an iOS app. Please change back or at least provide the slider to.
How do I change the spacing of items in my inbox. There is too much wasted space between messages now so too few messages can be seen on one page.
There's huge, huge amounts of whitespace on this new UI design. It's as bad as the new youtube design. I can't find how to change it so that all the wasted space is actually being used...
Please make it possible to change the size of emails in the message lists. I don't need 8 miles of white space surrounding each individual email, it's ugly and wastes space.
And again, this is far too cluttered, why cut the area we read with ****? We want a large area for reading our emails, not wasted space which is what you filled this with. Stop trying to make it better cause your useless at it!!! It's WORSE, DO YOU HEAR THAT!!!! WORSE.

The new layout still wastes a ton of screen space and makes me scroll around so much more than before. MS learned nothing from the beta feedback...
The New Version of Outlook is atrocious. Th fonts are too big and I see no way to adjust them. I can't see my messages full screen. Lots of wasted space with all the unwanted cute round icons and where did the check boxes go to delete or junk messages? Oh, there they are hiding under the unwanted cute round icons. Please, if you must update to let the hipsters have the cuteness, at least leave an option to go back to the "legacy" format. I don't like what's been done here.
I do not like the arrangement of the new Outlook.com email client. I find that each line is too spread out, wasting space and making me scroll my eyes and screen much more than before. I do not like the send button on the bottom. I do not like that I am forced to use it. I do not like the outline flag. It is too faint and doesn't stand out / contrast enough with the background.
