Slow web interface
Outlook.com works well as a mail server for MS Office Outlook. However, as a web based application, it is very slow and cumbersome. I would prefer a more streamlined and snappy interface.
The back button on the browser no longer works at all when I just want to back out of an email and everything is in slow motion now with outlook. It is so annoying to use. Please... every single time you've "improved" it you make it worse! Speed and performance are now a joke!

Since Outlook, hotmail is really really really slow. Chrome, firefox or other ...
Sometimes it does even not appear and still loading.. One day i will break my computer because this is unbelievebale !!!!!
I'm really disapointed from Outlook, i use this account since almost twenty years and now i'm fed up of Outlook..
Hotmail was the best !!!

the more events you add, the laggier it gets, especially in week view. I log everything I do throughout the day on the calendar. My weeks look pretty crowded.

I AGREE. Opening, refreshing, changing to Calendar -- these all take 5-10 seconds. I have fast internet to my house. It's not my service's or equipment's fault.
Reaktion is to slow.
Old Outlook was much better!
Interpretation after every written Letter from eMailAdresses makes all slow, should simply accept what i write. But how to deactivate eMailAdressCheck? And most importent for me is copy&paste from eMailAdresses, but ArrowKeys dont work.
And i hate that Outlook is Browser and InternetConnection -bound!

When the settings window is opened (like when I'm trying to change my email signature), the whole page loads very slowly and sometimes freezes the browser (Chrome).
Same here. I'm bummed, because I literally started to think about moving from Google/Gmail to Outlook... ugh.
Too slow for the web interface (sending email and setting). Always "wanting for outlook.live.com....loading" shows at left bottom corner.
Same here, live outlook for Mac is horrible for like weeks, switch to PC it's fine. What do we need to do to resolve this?
Too slow...I have noticed recently in the past 2 weeks that it is too slow to load or to get from one action to another specially when there is an attachment in the email...Honestly comparing to other competitor services I am very disappointed with how outlook is turning to be
too slow to receive the new e-mail from others
Email delayed to inbox, I was on a chat with someone who sent an email at 8:04 PM. Was not coming thru to inbox or junk. I had them send it to my gmail account and it was there at 8:06 PM. Later I rechecked Hotmail and at 8:29 it was received. A 25 minute delay. That simply unacceptable. Hot amil has been my main account for over 15 years and this is a new issue. Even with opening new accounts and getting confirmation e-mail it is so delayed that links get cancelled. If you cannot fix I will have no choice but to leave.
I don't know what is going on for several weeks but Outlook stinks. I have had this service 20 years. It is slow, it is freezing, it doesn't allow me to delete things (they keep coming back as if I didn't even delete them), it says folders are empty when they clearly have something in them, I have to keep hitting "send" over and over to get an email to go through when it hangs up, I could go on and on. Hundreds of spam emails a day and I can't even delete them. Folder rules are not working like they used to either. The rest of my computer is fine. Fix this horrible service
It's slow. It's really really slow. It's sooo slow. Can barely use it cause it's slow. Can barely type this feedback it's so **** slow. SLOW SLOW SLOW!
Outlook desperately needs a complete overhaul! It took me 8 hours to delete message rules (one by onet btw, ridiculous!) cause the website is so **** slow! This should've taken me no more than 10 seconds, instead a whole day has been waisted. Doesn't help Outlook has that obnoxious vertical ad banner on the right side that reloads every 10 seconds, eating up resources and valuable screen real-estate. SLOOOoooOoOOoooOOWWW!!!
When I hit reply I have to wait over a minute before the reply window appears. This happens every single time and its been like that for months.

Go back to old layout. The forced browser Outlook is always slow, and is unresponsive half the time.
For those who want to use outlook, they have the ability to use the app.
For old laptop that has 2gb memory Outlook has been really slow for few months now. I would greatly appreciate if you had option to have barebones version of mailbox with no useless bells and whistles that would run fast even on old machines.
I got e-mail message about 2 hours later, than other sent it. I tried with other account and there is good. My problem is with hotmail.
I have the same mail account i use in outlook.live.com loading into my phone.
Incoming emails will always show as received on my phone nearly instantly, whereas in outlook.live.com it takes a few min or longer to come through to my inbox.
