    Another "Techie" with nothing better to do than invent things to annoy us "Punters". What a useless Pop-Up this Undo is.

    WHY NOT UNDO IT AND THE BLOKE THAT THOUGHT IT UP???

    I HATE this new version of Outlook. The cursor stays on the send button and if u hit the wrong key- it sends before u are ready. Most of the time it sends a blank email. And that STUPID grey box at the bottom that tells u that you have deleted is just stupid and gets in the way constantly. All in all nothing good about this version.

    Clearly a hack that shows Microsoft acknowledges there is a problem with the trash bin (too hard to find deletes items?), it's become too hard to fix it and so they decided to put a terrible "patch" to cover the problem. REMOVE this "feature"!!!

    I voted NO for the annoying delete/undo useless popup, absolutely a waste of time, good heavens what's next?

    NO VOTE - REMOVE IT.

    One more thing to check (or not) to get rid of yet one more popup. I already know what I can delete and what I can UNDO....

    Absolutely non-value added.
    Annoying and useless.
    Please show me a way to DISABLE this annoying feature.

    Anyway to shut this SPAM off from Microsoft? Not Microsoft, they say they are...

    This is Microsoft Online Safety:

    Does Microsoft ever read this stuff from Microsoft - do they ever do anything about what truly annoys people like the popup delete/undo?

    This is distracting, unnecessary, and blocks the screen when I am deleting and going on to the next email.

    This 'new' feature is definitely unwanted, redundant, and a Big waste of valuable developer time. Why did you add this useless & distracting feature on hotmail? Is it that you just want to annoy the current users so much that they just find another email platform? Please tell how you came to justify creating it in the first place? Inexplicable!
    btw, I did NOT enable this worthless option in the Settings, so I don't know how this feature auto-enabled.
    btw, I did NOT change my Settings, so why this worthless feature all of a sudden self-enabled is a mystry.

    This is so ridiculous...when I move an email I KNOW where I have moved it...I do not need an irritating popup to tell me. When I delete something I know I have deleted it...again, I do NOT Need an irritating popup to tell me. Got some real smart people working full time to think these things up do you??

    I just found you can turn it off! It's in Settings, General, Notifications. At the bottom, under 'Action confirmations,' uncheck the box that says, 'Confirm that the action was successful.'
