How can we improve Outlook.com?

please include hierarchical view of folders in the "move to" folder drop down

I use high level folders and lower level sub-folders to organize emails. Using the "Move to" folder drop down in the old version of outlook led (after a couple clicks) to a view that included only the TOP LEVEL FOLDERS, which could be expanded to show sub-folders if desired. The new version of outlook has messed this up. Now, when one uses the "move to" command, and goes to "all folders" ALL of the folders are displayed including both TOP LEVEL folders and SUB-Folders all in sequential order. This makes no sense at all. For one thing, the folders are now all out of alphabetical order (because alphabetical ordering applies only to the top level of the folders in the hierarchy, so if you just vomit out all of the folders without distinguishing the level in the hierarchy, you get a mess). For another, the whole point of making hierarchical folder structures is to organize and summarize emails based on topic an sub-topic. . . this doesn't work unless the hierarchy is actually consistently represented throughout the application. Can you please address this?

Thanks!
