Checking an email should not open it
I just got a spam mail in my inbox.
I want to move it to my spam folder without opening it.
If I click the checkbox, the mail opens.
I don't like that.

Maybe we can boycott advertisers in the side bar. Would that get Microsoft's attention?
I never click on those ads but I might try emailing the advertiser directly and let them know they are dead to me until MS starts to listen.
Need to be able to 'Check Source' without opening it, otherwise maybe exposed to scammer.
Can no longer check mail for spam, without opening it.

Jack *** microsucks seems to think that opening a suspicious email to view the header is safe. You are ALL morons!
update opens e-mails when I click on the circle, not secure for my email or Computer if virus in e-mail
I want to easily block unwanted emails. Where is the block button?
There is no way to select an email without opening it. I would like to select several emails at one time to delete or at least be able to swipe and delete, but no, I have to open the email. I also would like to just select an email without opening and move it to one of my folders, but again, no, it’s not possible to do this without the email opening.

the new layout is totally user unfriendly before you would just check off a box and then hit delete even without opening the email to get rid of ones you don't want now that is not there and it makes it difficult to check off and delete of just check off and move to a different file please go back to the way it was before this new layout is terrible and the upgrade totally slows down the computers too.

I don't like your new outlook Junk mail options. I want to be able to just mark the junk mail without opening it and click a button for Block sender on the header tab of the junk mail.

Whenever emails are selected with a tick, the opening of emails should be prevented. This means you can go down the list selecting multiple emails quickly and not lose the selection by accidentally opening one of them. I'm sure this is the way the old version worked and it was good.
Make it possible to mark unwanted without opening the email, requesting images and verify to spam sender that mail was opened
I can no more hoover oversender to see who actually sent it without opening it, NOT GOOD!
Stop auto opening emails when you checkbox them or something, this can be a real security risk with spam emails if somebody has auto preview enabled and other security settings not enabled
With the recent update, I am unable to select a particular email to read without "sneaking" up on it. So inconvenient I have forwarded my email to a yahoo account so I can actually read my hotmail message. Not cool at all.

I really hate the new Outlook. Unless I'm doing it wrong, it seems it is no longer possible to select a message without opening it, so no selecting multiple messages to move to a folder, for example. This could be the iteration that finally makes me abandon Outlook for gmail.

when I click on the BUTTON on the lefhandside of the emailadresses in my mailbox I expect to SELECT the message, NOT to OPEN it! Usually this selection-process indeed goes OK, but sometimes all of a sudden the email opens. This is especially annoying when the email I'm trying to select (in order to remove) is junkmail. Because opening up such message can give the sender the confirmation that my email-adress is in use and will lead to more junk!

Do not open an email until I decide I want it opened. That's for me to decide, not you. This is supposed to serve me. I didn't come to Outlook to find a master to serve.
The automatic opening of the spam emails when you try to move them or forward them is horrible and dangerous. Please change this.

Option to delete emails without opening it/previewing it. I don't want to have to open spam emails and risk a virus, just to block them.
