  1. Change Calendar Meeting Owner or Organizer

    There should be a way to transfer the owner or organiser of a meeting in Outlook. If I set up a meeting up or - more commonly - a recurring meeting but then someone else takes on the running of it, there is no way I can transfer the ownership to another member of staff so they get updates on people's availability.

    In our organisation the EAs often set up meetings from their Execs diaries (because they have the best visability of diaries and can move meetings). But they're not the ones owning the meetings. If you're an invitee (not…

      • Where is the purge page in the delete function?

        Please bring back the purge function when email has been deleted. When email is deleted, is it really deleted? How does one recover deleted email?

          • Calendar event time input should be more forgiving

            i.e. recognize inputs such as "6pm", "6:30", "0630", etc.

            • alias

              Not sure if it's already posted, not sure how to word it.. but I can't seem to find where the "TO" portion is anymore... I like to know what alias was used when an email was sent to me but it doesn't seem to show anymore at the top of the message where the sender is.

              • deleting messages

                I am trying to delete old messages. First, the little icon is irritating. Especially since I cannot simply select an item or more and hit delete! The little icons keep switching back and forth and changingdoing whatever they feel like doing. First, go back to the old system! I have been trying to delete old messages for about 20 minutes and have only managed to delete about 25! That is ridiculous! You have taken a very good, very reliable app and made it into a frustrating nightmare!! I am seriously considering changing. Have been with MS/MSN for too many years…

                • Beta feels very complicated and compressing

                  I think if Outlook used icons that were easy to read and had easy to understand meanings that gave the user an idea in the long run of how to use the interface of their email, a change would be more successful. Instead of saying "deleted files" on the far left side,, use a trashcan icon. Less wording to give more space. It was very crammed seeing a list of emails on one side that were in the inbox and then the other side showing what is inside the email. It just seemed like there was little space and it…

                    • Confusing email layout

                      I need to see my emails predominately. If they're in a side panel on the left, it because confusing to read, understand, and respond.

                      • sender address

                        Hello,

                        Problem with the sender address.

                        I usually use an alias to login and send mail with Outlook Web. With the classic version, when logged with my alias mail address, recipients see my emails sent from this alias mail address.

                        With the new version, they see my emails sent with my outlook address (outlook_F62xxxxxxxxx@outlook.com... This is very uncomfortable for my contact and they think that it is spam...

                        I think this should work as in the classic version.

                        KR.
                        Stéphane

                        • TOO MUCH GOING ON!

                          I like the old outlook better. This is just too much. There is too much happening on the screen and it can get confusing especially when one is in a hurry. It also takes longer to load. The vertical panels have too much information and a quick glance doesn't suffice anymore. I love using outlook specifically because it has a very clean interface unlike other email clients. I really wish you guys wouldn't change it.

                              Email chain seems out of order. Most recent is not at the top. I responded to an email only to find that the sender had sent another one and it was at the bottom.

                                    • icons

                                      There are far too many icons that clutter the page. There should be an option to turn icons off, or to display only icons, rather than having both text AND icons. The focus/other switch is too big and should be a smaller button. Also the contact icons are definitely not needed - they are of no use...the display the first inition of the email or contact that is already visible...these are fine for an address book but not in the inbox pane - contained within the email is fine. Choosing to hide the reading pane on a desktop looks absolutely…

                                      • Too much wasted space.

                                        Please use a smaller font. It currently wastes the screen with unnecesary white spaces. Thanks

                                        • screen too small

                                          I have I think a 17" laptop screen, but when I switch to the beta version, I feel like too much of the screen is taken up by <not emails> - folder bar, inbox bar etc. If I had a widescreen it would probably be just fine. It is similar to the version I use at work, but I have bigger screens (and 2 of them) there.
