The new look of Outlook is childish and garish. Hate the ident things, hate 'today' and 'yesterday' - I am an intelligent adult and can tell when things were sent. I'd change my email if it wasn't such a pain to do. THIS IS DISGUSTING. I am so angry.

The new Design is like a cartoon. We are adults, not 9 year olds.
My Hotmail account now looks like a pre-school project. I hate the cartoon look and unprofessionally appearance of the site. I'd be embarrassed if a client or co--worker saw this site open on my computer. You really screwed up this time.
This version of Outlook is horrible. Looks like it was designed by high school kids playing with different colors and clip art. And as I saw in chat rooms, I was not the only one who did not receive notification this was going into effect.
I hate the new childish look. If it is here to stay I'll be moving to gmail

Outlook email used to be professional in appearance, easy to view & send messages, etc. Once again there have been numerous changes implemented, resulting in more time-consuming constraints. I have finally given up on using Microsoft Outlook & will finally change to another email service. I am so disappointed!
I get that you are trying to do gmail - but outlook users do not want gmail, otherwise they would use it!!! How are you not getting this. Hire someone who understands this and stop with the colors and baby-fication of th UI. Utility is everything and you just cut the number of entries I can read by 50%! HOW IS THIS HELPFUL? I am not 95 so I can read regular sized fonts.

Why the cartoon style graphics?
How do I get rid of this version of outlook with the big coloured buttons on the left? It makes me feel as though I am 5 years old !! It is NOT professional in appearance at all.

I have no interest in emoji's or any of these other childish "enhancements". Why don't I have a choice.? I know I didn't delete the old version.
