  1. ain't got no alibi

    Ugliest version yet. Tries to cram in too many needless bells and whistles. Like the last update. Email is simple text -- the more clutter you add to justify asking your clients to pay for an update, the worse your product gets. Just stop. Email should be simple.

    First off, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and to try out the new experience.

    I wanted to offer a suggestion to see if it helps with the busy feel.

    If you click on the gear in the top right try turning off Sender Photos and Attachment Previews.

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you for the feedback, and for trying Outlook on the Web.

    I just wanted to let you know that there are two options to turn off those two features you mentioned.

    1) Click on the Gear in the top right

    2) Toggle off both the Sender Photos and Attachment previews.

    This should turn off both of those features you mentioned.

    Hope this helps

    First off, Thanks for taking time to provide some feedback and for trying the new Outlook on the web experience!

    I just wanted to let you know that you are able to disable two options that I think might address some of your feedback.

    Click on the gear in the top right, and then disable the Sender Photos and Attachment Previews.

    This will help reduce some of the colors, and reduce some of the preview pictures that are shown.

    Hope this helps!

  4. search bar

    I switched back to the old Outlook because the search bar was buried somewhere and I couldn't find it.

  6. Disabled Image Icons by Default

    Image icons are ugly and waste screen space. They should be disabled by default, especially for enterprise users

    First off I just want to personally thank you for taking time to try the new Outlook on the Web experience, as well as providing feedback.

    I did want to write and let you know that you are actually able to turn off some of the new features that might be adding to the feeling of being more cluttered/more information showing.

    I would recommending trying to turn off Attachment Previews and Sender Photos. If you click on the gear in the top right, you can toggle both of them to off.

    Hope this helps!

  7. New outlook

    It seems that simplicity was sacrificed for a slightly more modern look.

    Hi there! First off, thanks for taking a few minutes to provide some feedback. We have for sure been working on improving the experience and making it feel more modern. The design has been based on lots of feedback we have received on the current version.

    You mention that it feels less simple. Do you mind me asking what exactly makes it less simple?

    Is it the new Sender Photos (colored circles) or the attachment previews?

    Did you know you can actually turn off both of those? Check out the Gear in the top right. You can quickly toggle a variety of settings that will adjust the look and feel.

    Thanks!

  8. Design is inefficient

    The display of emails take up the same amount of space with less information. It's not as readable as the old version. The enlarged navigation bar on the left takes space away from what really matters to me--being able to see the emails in my inbox.

  9. The folders side bar is no longer collapsable. Completely Unusable

    In the old outlook, the folders sidebar collapsed into a very unobtrusive thin bar. In its current state, I cannot even use the new outlook. I relegate my outlook to half of one of my screens and emails are unreadable with the folders bar taking up 20% of the available screen space.

    Hi there! Thank you for the feedback and for using Outlook on the Web!

    I just wanted to let you know that you can collapse the folder list. If you click on the icon with the three lines, located next to the new email button. It will collapse the folder list.

    Hope that helps!

  10. Do not waste space on the left side of the readable part of the mail (under circle ID)

    When you select a mail to read, there is an unnecessarily empty vertical column on the right under the circle ID ...
    Compare with the old version and you will understand the difference ...

  11. new outlook on the web

    I do not like the new look of the outlook. It seems much slower and too many different colors. I did like that it would put a red dot on the tab so I could see I got new mail while in another tab.

  12. The new outlook

    It's too much for me. I like simplicity and less, so I prefer the old look. This one is harder to tell what's read or not. I don't like how the attachments make the email cell's larger.

    First off, Thanks for taking sometime to try the new experience and for providing feedback.

    You mention that things feel a bit too cluttered on a laptop.

    Can you try disabling these two settings and see if it feels better.

    Click the Gear in the top right, and then disable Sender Photos and Attachment Previews.

    Hope this helps!

  13. The split screen when opening emails or creating a new email is to small

    Get rid of the split screen. It's a horrible design.

    First off, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We truly do value it!

    I just wanted to follow-up with you. Are you referring to the reading pane? If you are not a fan of that, you can disable it by doing the following

    1) Click on the Gear in the top right.
    2) Look for the Reading Pane section. Then select Off.

    Once this is off, it will give you a larger view of your mail which you can click in and out of.

    Hope this Helps!

  14. General UX Thoughts

    Could use better UX - the many colors made it confusing - reminds me too much of inbox.google.com
    - some more differentiation
    - making attachment icons smaller
    - keeping colors streamlined

  17. New Outlook

    I love the way the new Outlook looks on the phone but not on my computer. There is too much going on and it is difficult to see everything.

    Click on the gear in the top right and toggle off the Attachment Previews, and the Sender Photos.

    I think that will help alleviate some of the cluttered feeling you might be experiencing.

    Thanks

    Thanks for taking the time to provide us some feedback. I am sorry to hear you aren’t a fan of the new experience.

    There are a few things that you might want to try. If you click the gear at the top right, you can disable the sender photos and attachment previews.

    This might help reduce some of the new features that feel different. I would love to hear your feedback after you try that.

    Thanks
