More obvious New Message button
Have the "New Message" button bigger with a theme related color background. I had a really hard time finding it with the new look

Make the icons visible!
The "New Message" button (OWA) is in the wrong place,... Or at least we should have the ability to move it somewhere else. I expect it to be further to the right, nearer to the REPLY button.
New Message button is broken in new outlook. Click and nothing happens. Using Chrome.

In the old Outlook, the New email button was right above the left hand side of the emails.
Now it's over at the left. And what is where it used to be? Reply All! (Or Delete)
If folks have never used Outlook before, I guess that's OK. But to those of us who have - I have several times almost completely mystified intended recipients by sending out an accidental reply all on a completely irrelevant topic. Put the New button back where we expect it.
and it don't follow the same pattern in Calendar "new event"
It also messes me up that it's where the old search bar was. It's slowing me down having to look for it.
Hi, I am a web/UX designer and taking just a couple of mins out to say I feel that your 'new message' or compose email button needs more visual weight as its getting lost. It needs to be a solid colour or icon like the existing mail at the moment. Also replying, forward etc is also getting lost too. These are core functions of using mail and need to be more clear to the user. I know you are just testing this so hopefully you will take comments like this on board as there are lots of small niggly things that need ironed out to really perfect your new look interface.
The former "new email" was right about the list of emails. Now, in that spot, is "reply" and it is hard not to have some email in my reading list not be active so I am getting "reply" emails opening instead of "new emails" that I want. If you allowed us to customize that bar we could put the icons where we want them in our order of preference which is more important to me than your idea of what you think I want--and is not what I want.
The new message button is larger, which is great, but it's in an unusual spot. I keep searching for it above the thread of emails. Being off to the side is distracting.
Nothing happens when pressed.
