Old version was fine. 'If it ain't broken, don't fix it!'

Slower to react
Slower to search
When an email has more than one attachment, if you click on see all attachments then click to see the in browser preview, it collapses the attachments so you have to click see all again
When looking at the preview of any attachment, the search function becomes unavailable, clicking in the search box does nothing. You have to close the attachment preview before you can search
Don't like the update look!
Dont see any improvement and the new outlook wont let me swich between mailboxes easily, not impressed - it wasnt broke why fix it! I've noticed that I'm not the first to raise this. Yes the option is there to open another mailbox but it doesn't open another mailbox!
Original format is/was great, that's why I use it. The new format sucks. No need for IDS's for incoming mail. I use it to conduct business not happiness. Scroll down feature needs a microscope. 'if it ain't broke" leave it the **** alone!

My idea is stop changing all the time. Stop insisting I try the "new program" which uses my time in unproductive ways. Sell me a new application when I feel mine is no longer working but stop making me figure out how you are "fixing" my current one. Louise Googins
There was nothing wrong with the old format. I actually hated the last update because it always sends important emails to the unfocused inbox.

IT IF AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT, AND DON'T REPLACE IT. Where did my "rules" go, and my sub-folders that the rules feed my incoming mail into. Presorting my mail keeps me organized. This new look would require me to re-create my rules, set up over a hundred folders again and exhaust more time than I can spare to reproduce what it took me years to refine.

Keep it how it was. It has nothing to change so it shouldn't be changed.

I use Outlook Mail for business and I work fast. I do not need to be slowed down by having to learn a new email interface. Plus, I just do not like the new interface. It's way too busy and confusing to look at. I am an extremely computer-literate guy, and do not just outright reject change. But this is a change that will not be good for me. Please allow users to choose which interface they want to use.
I realize that software engineers have to justify their existence by making the complicated more complex. Go ticker with something else. Leave things alone.
Caption is self-explanatory
Why the superficial change? Keep the old interface, new one is rubbish, and counter intuitive.

STOP CHANGING THINGS. I LIKE THE WAY MY OUTLOOK IS AS IS . DONT FIX SOMETHING THATS NOT BROKEN AND FOCUS ON FIXING BUGS
looks cluttered and wastes space with a box around the email itself- not needed. It works at the moment, if it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it!
The new one is so disorienting and inconvenient. Absolutely not.
I like being able to see my calendar day on the side bar with one click rather than having to open up a secondary tab for each day
and the color coding is not as bright (quite dull)
Just not a fan of the layout.
Leave it alone. It works fine the way it is and there is no need to update it. I like it how it is and find any change unnecessary and confusing.
No need for a new look, it works fine and is easy to navigate.
Coming from someone who uses this day in day out in a busy environment, my self or my colleagues do not have time to get used to a new look Outlook.
Better to keep it the way it is and just fix any bugs that may exist!
