    The amount of times I've accidentally clicked the star instead of opening the mailbox.... terrible UX decision.

    I accidentally hit the favourite star all the time and it is annoying. Please remove the star option and move it to a different location that is not going to accidently get hit when i click to open a folder,
    I suggest to make it a drop down option or move it to the settings

    the stars to add to favourites are a damned nuisance. I keep clicking on the stars by mistake when I want to view my emails in the folder.

    Can Microsoft remove the star on the Favorite folder? Because if I accidentally click the Inbox Star on Favourites, I have to reset the Inbox Star on Folders, and keep clicking it moving up the list.

    It's too easy to mark something as a favourite when you just want to go into the folder. I keep having to undo marking as a favourite.

    Get rid of the silly star on the inbox. I want to see the number of messages without moving the cursor.
