  1. Forwarding mails with attachments, doubles attachment

    When I foward an mail with an attachment, and then receive an answer to that mail, the single attachment is shown twice in the last mail, because there is an attachment in the original mail, and in the mail I fordward.

    Outlook should know, that I fowarded the attachment without any changes and it should therefore not list the attachment twice in the attachment preview (inbox list), because it confuses me when there's the same item twice.

  2. reply email

    When replying to an email the reply is being glitching and appearing at the bottom of the email, I suggest keeping the reply at the top of the email chain making it easier to scroll down and read the top lines of the email whilst replying. Scrolling is glitchy in beta.

  5. Application Menu.

    Like the new Application Menu from Outlook.com beta. Unfortunately the same menu UI doesn't extend when moving between applications. I suspect that this is because just Outlook.com is the beta, however I thought I would let you know.

  6. Reply from the top, not the bottom

    When I reply the input is at the bottom of the screen not the top. I would rather it remained at the top. There's probably a setting for that but I've not found it as yet.

  7. Reading the email as a whole

    I want to be able to see the whole email. Currently can only see the left and have to use the slider bar to see the other side. How can I open the whole email and see and read? Really aggravating!. Otherwise, I like the new set out and look of it.

  8. marking emails as unread impossible

    While having the unread email filter selected it is impossible to mark them as unread. Otherwise great experience.

  10. Preview side panel

    I like to look of beta as its colourful and allows you to delete unwanted emails easier. I cant see anything in my right side panel though and I was expecting to see a preview of my email.
    I think a text service would be useful; I have used this before from a work email and it proved very popular. You could link it to your company and send text reminders.
    I am a techno-phobe though, so what do I know? Basically... the more simple and user friendly the better.

  11. Font and elements too big

    Beta is much better but pls make things smaller by default. I use Outlook with 90% zoom in Chrome which makes it good. Fonts and all elements are just huge by default pls make smaller.

  12. PDF

    Could not mess around too much, had to turn off because PDF viewing had glitch displaying only black, even when highlighting text. Will try beta again after attending my PDF.

  13. Sync contacts with Gmail/Google

    I have an Outlook.com account and a Gmail account for my Android phone. I need to be able to sync contacts between the two if I am able to continue using Outlook for email, otherwise it makes more sense just to stick with one central contacts list for phone numbers and email - and because I have an android phone, I will have to make gmail my primary email service.

    I think this feature once existed, I know we were once able to link Facebook, but I'm not sure.

  14. Visual Declutter

    Not a big fan of the colored icons, it's very distracting and just not helpful in my opinion. Everything else seems good.

  15. More Ideas

    1. A Smart Calendar and Tasks that can read from mail or give options to add it to Task list or Smart Calendar.

    2. While writing an email, just like smartphones keyboard that knows the user's vocab, hotmail in desktop should know the user's vocab while composing an email. It should smartly assist the user with auto complete and auto compose. This will be an AI feature.

    3. I have always had a tough time search my mailbox. There should be more easy options to search using not just exact keywords but keywords that sound similar, synonyms, etc.

    4. Junk…

  18. Grouping threads is not friendly

    Grouping emails per thread doesn´t make it easier. It´s harder to find specific emails and who they are coming from. I was not able to find a lot of emails and had to go to my iphone and fwd to myself to be able to find them on my PC

  20. Fix the search to sort the way I want with clean results.

    Sorting is still bizarre, using some weird algorithm which for me has been 100% unhelpful. Now your listing blocks instead line items so there are only a few results displayed at a time.

    Terrible is too gentle a description for most of the beta.
