    Calendar View: where is the search bar? I switched out of new outlook because I can't find it in the calendar, only in the email view.

    Please put search bar back on the top. What the **** were you thinking? Clearly the UI folks do not use outlook for business purposes.

    The new look is god but there is no sign to search for an email while the old one has the sign for search

    I am having problems with search as well. It was much easier in the old version. Please put search bar back!

    It's harder to search for emails in specific folders: If, for example, I'm looking for a specific email I sent to my boss 3 months ago, I use the search bar and end up having to manually sift through every email that included my boss whether I sent it or not.

    Where is the search bar? I was trying to find someone in the company but had no way of doing that in this new version?

    Move search bar back to where it was. I use it often. You moved it. I don't know where it is.

    It took too long to find the search bar to look for mail in the different boxes - NEED SEARCH BAR!!!!

    I need the search button so immediately can locate older emails, contacts, and other contacts from my organization and now I am unable to do that on the new Outlook
