    New Hotmail is garbage. The focused and Other fields where Microsoft has decided how your email should be listed is the dumbest, let's go 5 steps backwards feature to be integrated into the entire Outlook and webmail interface.

    Why are two places to look at regular mail, Inbox and Other? Just another step to go through. There is already Junk Email, we don't need a third one !!!

    Can anyone give me a logical explanation as to why there are two "INBOXES" (Focus) & )Other)? This is just plain dumb and it is confusing as can be. Please explain.

    These suggestions do abosulty nothing to restore or make anyway similar as was before. The moderator keeps making these nonsense suggestions.

    time to switch to gmail if the classic format does not return. I am unable to locate mail received the past two days. I was to receive a work schedule to confirm and can not locate it. If I do not locate it to confirm I loose three weeks of work
