Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.
Defect alert: Replying to an e-mail whilst your inbox is filtered to 'unread messages' just deletes the message.
1. Filter your inbox to 'unread'
2. Open a message, push reply.
I should be able to reply to the message.
No reply message appears, the message disappears entirely, and the message which was unread is gone from the filter (meaning you need to manually search to find it). You can see something new in drafts, but click on the folder and it gets deleted.

What is the ETA for a fix on this issue?
From the browser, ANY browser, filter your emails by "unread", click on one of them and then try to forward it or reply. That email disappears and the browser opens the next unread email below! WTF!
I exposed this issue to tech support last year and they fixed it. Now it's broken again, WHY????
****, man! You messed up Outlook live again! Why? Why? Why? For ****'s sake, why?
From MS Edge browser, filter by "unread", then reply to ANY of the ******* emails and see what happens!!! ******* it! You barely finished fixing it and now it's ********* again!!!

When the last update happened about a year (maybe more?) ago this became an issue and I reported it. Still hasn't been fixed with this new release... When using the Unread filter in the inbox, when you click reply the message closes and saves a blank reply in the Draft folder. It also now minimizes to the bottom of the screen. Ok I thought that isn't a real fix but I can deal. But when you click on the bottom version it doesn't contain the original message. To reply correctly you still need to go into the Draft folder to actually write and send the message. Seems a pretty basic function for an email program to do...
When I filter to unread emails then try to reply it all disappears and brings me back to the inbox rather than letting me reply. Luckily the email now stays unread so I can find it again but if there is a reply button, when I press it, it should let me reply! Please change that functionality back to how it was before this last update!
Choosing any "REPLY" Link to an UNREAD message kicks me out of the message completely. This has been happening for at least two months. There is also a glitch in choosing a contact with the same first name.....I am having to manually enter email addresses

While Seclecting Unread Msg's and clicking on reply, the Email Vanished into draft or Deleated Items,
please get it recitfied
From "unread" filtered menu, cannot respond to emails - kicks me out when I hit respond. Critical fix needed!!!

I can't reply to an email if I open an email with the Filter set to Unread. Clicking Reply brings me back to the Inbox.
Defect alert (regressed) - when filtered to unread, if you reply to a message it's deleted instantly.
There is a major glitch with outlook live. If you sort mail by "Unread" and you try to reply, the message simply disappears!!! It's a major flaw been there since the beta. How come it hasn't been fixed it yet????
