Lack of customization
I find the lack of customization in the format and style of outlook to be a problem.
Sure, I can change the "theme", but I can't do anything to change the actual display style.
It was not intuitive to me how to customize the default view. I clicked around on various things and couldn't find any controls for it. There was an email that I knew someone sent me a short while earlier, because they printed it out; but I couldn't find it or see it in the view where it was grouping everything in one thread by the topic. I wanted to go to the old view where I could see every single email in the order they arrived so I could find it. Also, I couldn't find a way to make the preview smaller and see more information on the sender, subject, date, status, etc. and make those fields wider. I could drag them only so far, then it wouldn't let me drag them any further.
After switching to new view, there is no option to configure distribution lists
A) I like the overall look and design, but the larger folders make it impossible to see everything at once (and I don't have that many folders of my own creation). It would be helpful to be able to customize folder size to see them all.
B) Could you get rid of the clutter folder? I imagine those that need it can make their own.
C) I've always liked the ability to see the first line of an email - is this still an available customization?
Allow the user to specify which columns he wants to see in the inbasket and further allow the user to sort ascending or descending on any column and further allow the user to adjust the width of the column.
Is it possible to have more customization with viewing such as with column headers, layout of message lists, menu colors etc.... thanks!

The color scheme for the new Outlook is hideous, so I'd change it back. Also, I love the options to customize the colors and patterns-it makes it fun to check my email! So maybe do more of that.
Prefer navigating through drop-down lists of the features I need to customize.
In the new version I must remember the name of the features, and enter them in a Search Box.
Two Problems: 1. sometimes I don't know the names of the features; or even
2. That I have the option of customizing certain features. >>>
Old version was more efficient and useful.
Add more options to customize appearance and the ability to make display font smaller. It is all too spaced out and oddly separated.
