Outlook Beta - undesirable
Really unimpressed with the new 'Outlook Beta'. It leaves a lot to be desired. Internet speed is more than sufficient yet it takes an age to load anything and switch between the focused/other inboxes.
The Ad panel on the right is irritating as the inbox screen is too large so display is very awkward and squished; weirdly feels claustrophobic - how does that happen?!
Personally not impressed with this move and would suggest you stop before it goes further. The layout is undesirable, you can't change the view to be more user friendly and suit your own needs. It's not very adaptable and is not as easy to navigate. In a world that is ever expanding one would hope the improvement would be quicker. How disappointing.
