[Dislike]:New Message / Reply Cursor in BODY not TO
New Messages and replies place the cursor into the message body instead of the TO: field, which our users are finding to be irritating and not in keeping with the offline outlook defaults and experience.
The cursor should be in the TO: field as the usual workflow is to add emails, then possibly CC:, and Topic field... then the user clicks into the body.
Should be fixed as of sept

Someone suggested to make it optional--let the user decide and change it in their settings. I like that.
I see why this feature is frustrating to most, but I MUCH prefer to start with the body of the email, then add the recipients when I'm ready to send. It prevents me from sending an email prematurely.
so slow dreadful upgrade please go back to old version nothing good about this one at all

Agree. This is so annoying and wastes a lot of time.

When Replying the cursor goes to the bottom of the text after the included text, when it should go to the top.

This is not COMPLETED. Could somebody please listen to us and fix this problem. New message should place cursor in To field, NOT the body of the message. This is so frustrating.
I think it would be nice to have the option of where you want to have the cursor to start at. Let the end user decide. Thank you

this is absolutely ridiculous! Why make changes like this? Do Microsoft ever check the flow of anything? Might have to finally make the move to Google.
