GET RID OF FOCUSED MAIL NOW!
Get rid of the focused mail!, just sort by date cause i have to go through extra steps to find mail thats not there cause it didnt meet the criteria of focused, whatever that may be.
First off, thank you for using outlook.com, and for providing such great actionable feedback!
I just wanted to let you all know that if you don’t like the Focused Inbox, you are able to easily disable it. When you disable it you will get all of your inbox items in a single view.
To do this, do the following:
1) Click on the Gear in the top right,
2) this opens the Quick Settings Pane, from here look for Focused Inbox. Turn it off.
Hope this helps!

I do not like the new appearance (beta) are many things and they pile up on the screen I would like it to be simpler and more organized with great views and focused on the mail. thanks.

On the default view, there is not enough space on a standard laptop to see all of the relevant content due to the ads taking up too much space.
Also, I find the focused/other toggle annoying.
Can you not have a reading pain at the bottom, like on a pc version? This beta version just looks too cluttered. And I hate the focused and other grouping. I just want to see all my emails as they come in in my inbox. Its hard to see what ive received with this focused/other tool. Can I turn that off?
trying to move or can't move messages or only a limited amount of folders are available and No I don't want to move back and forth to the focused or other

All of my mail disappeared when I switched to the beta version. There was nothing in my "Focused" or my "Other" inbox.

don't care for the stacked emails. makes deleting the unnecessary ones difficult. i never really cared for the split/focused either -- i liked finding everything in one place. ad space is too large -- distracting.
And this line is not customisable in Beta. That's what I thought you meant. :) Now I can't archive an email without reading it (and when it's just PayPal confirming payment for an order I know about, I don't want to wait while my slow connection loads the message, I just want to archive it.

I hate the "FOCUS" and "OTHER" split, please remove this or allow us to cancel it !!!!!!!!
I couldnt find a way to stop the emails from coming up in a chain or combined

just keep it simple, too confusing even with all the reply and forward at the end of each reply - WHY???. You should go back the way it was. You haven't improved for the better but for the worse. Why change something that was working well.
Why can't the emails be together. Do not like the focused / other feature at all.
Why the split screen? If there is a certain email I want to read, I'll click on it. Don't need to see all the other emails listed.
I cant find the other Inbox. I can only see the mails that are part of Focused inbox and not other inbox.
Still unable to send group emails to multiple addresses?
how do i do this?
ALso what is the point of the focused and other emails??
Get rid of focused/other. Not everyone will understand or use it. Creates too much clutter. For me, personally, I like simple.
Please, please get rid of the focused and other inboxes. I am missing so many emails that I need to read and getting what should be focused in other. Who/what decides where my emails should be put, because they/it are not getting in right at all!
Also, I am receiving so many junk emails all of a sudden in my inbox and sending them to my junk folder isn't making any difference!
For goodness sake, please don't complicate things any more. The present Outlook is not friendly for some disabilities and I am concerned it will only get worse!

Get rid of this new format...it's terribly confusing!
Show the entire e-mail when I open it. I would also like to see all the mail in my inbox. I don't like the focused and other tabs.
Way too much going on between the two vertical windows and the focused and other slider, which I hate as well. I don't mind seeing a quick glance of the email but the window cuts it off so I have to go over and scroll left to right to even see enough of the email to tell if I want to delete or not.
Way too busy. Liked original better without focused/other slider and no preview window.

Yes, and it used to disappear, but if you clicked to select that spot it would reappear and you could continue to use it to delete the individual emails. Now however, it will disappear and the next time you click it opens the email that you wanted to delete and it's very annoying. I'm sure someone must have complained that this was a bug, but it was perfectly functional for me. It would be nice if you would change it back to work the way that it did before.
