How can we improve Outlook on the web?

I dont like that on the landing page of my inbox, I can see the attachment files. It makes my inbox cluttered.

    Thank you for the feedback, and for trying Outlook on the Web.

    I just wanted to let you know that there are two options to turn off those two features you mentioned.

    1) Click on the Gear in the top right
    2) Toggle off both the Sender Photos and Attachment previews.

    This should turn off both of those features you mentioned.

    Hope this helps

        I have the same problem in alle the mailboxes that are not my default mailbox. No preview and not able to download the attachment (pdf).

        please show all attachments in the message. When i open a message with more than 3 attachments, it shows 2 of them very clearly and then in little teen tiny type it says "show all 3 attachments". I will totally miss the 3rd (4th/5th) attachments because i do not know to look for them. No one reads that teeny tiny type and we have nothing else telling us there are more attachments. I feel like I'm going to miss important stuff.

        Attachment previews used to have an option to open it in a new window/tab. I don't see that as an option any more. I'd like to be able to view my emails or create a new email message while previewing an attachment in another window without having to download the document to my computer.

        Can not open attachments on incoming mail/mail in inbox. Send me to a page that says "You don't have permission to open this mailbox"

        Thank you David!
        It totally helps. I think this tips (about turning off this features) could be mentioned in that first access tour.

        in the new email i can only see 6 mails below eachother because of all the attachments and the enormous space they take.

        DITTO! TO ALL...
        Unable to preview and download attachments. It takes so much longer to load, and I am unable to view them.

        Need to be able to read a message while previewing its attachments side by side the message.

        Can replicate the same coding function which was already in old email

        The attachments will not open in this new format, also the side menu that shows all your boxes, inbox, etc will not calapse.

        Icon representing the attachment in the mail list takes up space unnecessarily -- better to conserve space to be able to see more messages

        The loading process is slow already , and is further slowed by this.
        I simply want to make sure I have attached the right files.
