show date and time of our reply to a message
Lost feature: in the Classic version, showing at the top of a received message isa notation of the date and time when we replied to that message. It used to say, "you replied 10/19/2018, 7:34 am." Once I saw that confirmation, I knew whether to delete or move that received email from my inbox.
This feature is important, as it confirms not only that I have replied and that the message was sent successfully, it allows me to easily reference that reply in follow up emails. I can easily search for and confirm the content of my reply by accessing via date and time.
As I've noted in some of my other feedback on this site, this feature was not a luxury, not a "nice to have." It is essential to keep the features that we have relied on.
And again, why roll out a product that is so amazingly deficient of all the boilerplate, minimum features we've had before, if you are actually planning to include these features? (I'm referring to the messages from Admins that I keep seeing here that say, "thank you for your feedback, we're working on this important feature."). It makes no sense to have wiped these out in the first place, only to add them back in if you get a ton of complaints. that is not customer service.
This has been reintroduced to Outlook Web. You will see the date and time of your reply if you turn off Conversations. If you have Conversations on, you will instead see your actual reply as an item in the thread.

There is no indication on an email that you have replied to it.
I have to agree, would be nice to have that information again - hard to tell what's been responded to.
This was a very helpful feature, to know if and when (date and time) I replied to emails (would've been even better if recipients were listed for Forwarded messages) without now having to go back to the inbox to see this tiny reply arrow or to sift through my sent mail, which is increasingly impossible to maneuver.
Can't see anymore if I have replied to email. You must really be idiots. Why "upgrade" to make your product worse?
