Search function for Contacts
I am not able to pull up a searched contact with the new outlook format. I have to go back to the old format and even at that, the only way I can see the info is if I tell it to Edit it...
When attempting to search through People/Contacts, when typing in their name in the search bar it will load them but only pulls from where I have emailed them and does not recognize them as a current contact (option to add contact shows) so I have to MANUALLY scroll all the way alphabetically through my contacts and locate myself. Basically, search feature is useless if it cannot find contacts that are already created and in
When you add new contacts in "People/Contacts" and then return to an email draft and search for the new contact in the "To" or "Cc" line or the "To" or "Cc" drop-down, the contact cannot be found anywhere, even after a browser window refresh.
Also, when in the "People/Contacts" if I search for a contact that I know for sure is in my contacts, the new Outlook People search returns unsuccessfully.
So far, I always have to scroll and find all my personal contacts manually as searching for people/contacts does not currently work at all. Even when searching within our company exchange directory, results can be spotty at best sometimes.
There seems to be an issue with People/Contacts and the way that the searching is set up at the moment. This has been an issue since I started trying the new Outlook a few months ago.

I'm using the company office 365 account.
Sometimes, when you search for a particular contact it doesn't work properly, it's very buggy.
As an example, there's a Christian. When you type "Ch" it gets suggested, but as soon as you press "r", it goes away as a suggestion. This behaviour seems to be different from machine to machine: this particular example happende to a coworker whereas I could not reproduce the bug on my machine; then I recalled similar problems I had in the past when composing mails and having to search for the mail address because for that particular account on that particular moment contact search wasn't working.
Suggested email addresses for recipients not in my contacts or domain no longer appear when starting to type their name or address
Unable to search for people in the Search box. It only locate the people I've contacted.
And also when the email is Flagged and then unflagged, it doesn't leave a check mark.
Contact search is very poor in the new version.
I don't vant to make a full search or listing, I just need a quick result as in the old version. I'm reverting back to the old version immediately!

The function to search and sort by certain persons or emails seems to malfunction. I cannot search by email and get all the emails from that email address anymore. I'm switching to the old one because I could then.

I could not find a 'Search People' icon - very important; otherwise fine.
