  2. Disaster

    The ads on the right are a nuisance. It is too cramped and complicated is right! And very difficult to find the thread of my email messages. Also attachments are hard to find. In short a true disaster. Take me back to the old outlook please. Help!

  3. Ads on bottom pane obstruct my view of full email preview & email itself.

    The feature to move the ads to the side part of Outlook.com is currently not available. Make it available again. Every time I am reading a email, I have to slide the email to the right in order to finish reading it or C the date because I don't have enough space and I don't wanna use the focus email

  6. I do not like the change

    My homepage changed without my input. I do not like what is currently on my homepage, and cannot find categories that I had selected like weather. I had it set up the way I wanted it.

  8. Change Two-step verification

    The SMS sending option cannot be eliminated from two-step verification. I use the same tool in many other services like Google and they let me choose which method I prefer. Especially since I have read that, although it is very safe, the SMS method is more vulnerable to an attack than, for example, Google Authenticator appp, which is what I use in my account. Also, I have used a security key in my account as a login method but I wish to establish the key as a second factor method since using only the key is more vulnerable if I…

    New updated Outlook is very confusing and difficult to use or navigate. Forwarding emails attaches them to messages and they are unable to be retrieved.
    When writing new emails, they don't appear across the page for easy viewing prior to sending,
    Not as easy to find or view emails.
    Not necessary to have "focused" and "other" viewing folders. It is confusing.
    Your previous version was much more user friendly and much easier to navigate. Not happy with this update at all.

  10. turn off new features by default and allow users to turn on/off with a switch

    I have spent 20 years being frustrated by hotmail (outlook). Every time MS adds a new feature they break something I used to use or the new feature is just annoying. I then spend ages trying to figure out how to use it again, contacting support, have to post a request to fix on a forum (?!?!?) etc- it is massively disrespectful of my time as a user who just wants to use email (without being part of a continual beta test program) to have this disruption all the time.

    Instead of just turning on a new feature, please, please,…

  17. Recurring Out of Office

    It will be great to be able to setup recurring out of office for auto replies on a particular day of the week as some of the staff members don't work everyday.

  18. Set the default meeting time to 15 minutes from the current 30 minutes

    Would like Outlook to reduce the default meeting length from 30 minutes to 15 minutes to drive more productivity worldwide. All the meetings which are unnecessarily dragged because of 30-minute time frame could be cut short.

  19. LA FALTA DE JUSTIFICACION EN MENSAJE TEXTOS

    REGARDS. I TRY TO SEND MY WORD MESSAGE, IN JUSTIFIED TEXT, BUT BY COPYING THE MESSAGE IN HOTMAIL OUTLOOK IT IS ALIGNED TO THE LEFT, HORRIBLE. PLEASE CORRECT THAT ON YOUR PAGE, BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE JUSTIFICATION OPTION IN THE TEXT MESSAGE TOOLS OR NEW MESSAGE. THANK YOU SINCERE, ELKIN RODRIGUEZ, FROM BOGOTA COLOMBIA.

  20. Ad Preferences Settings OFF!

    Ad preferences settings, STOP reverting my settings back to ON when I've already changed them to OFF 20 times now. JUST STOP! I press "save" for a reason, why can't you SAVE my setting?
