  1. Various Design Issues

    The new design is cluttered to say the least, the side-panel containing all the accessibility icons should really be moved to the top instead of being pushed to the bottom of the screen. The navigation and application buttons need to be more distinctive from each other. Another issue to resolve is to animate the opening of various panels, having half of the panels animated on opening and closing and half of them not is a bad design decision as it does not unify the product.

  2. Unreadable Font & Too Much White Space

    Too much wasted white space. Like an Apple website. Please remove the sender icon, or provide an option to exclude it from the display. It’s not necessary. The coloured balls just confuse the eye and don’t help me identify my contacts. Particularly because the letters inside them are virtually invisible.

    In fact, the new font is too difficult to read and will be the primary reason I don’t use this beta version of Outlook. Super-skinny medium grey letters on a white, darker grey, or coloured background are difficult to read and can’t possibly be good UX design.

    The global population…

  3. Font Boldness/Color/Contrast

    It is hard to read the font against the white background, please make it bolder/darker.

    The font colors do not contrast enough to create an easy to read interface.

    For instance, as I am typing in this review, the words in this box are bold and easy to read. However, to the right is the "Outlook.com beta, Post a new idea..," menu and even though "All Ideas" is a blue font, the thinness of the font makes it hard to read and tell the difference between the other menu titles.

  4. Paste Options

    I would like to be able to have paste options just like in Word (this was available in the previous version of Outlook). For example, when I copy some text from a webpage it gets all the text format and I cannot only paste the text without any formatting. Thanks for your time and attention :)

  5. email received in folder notification

    If I have a rule for job interviews in a business folder, I would like to get notifications for emails that come into that folder. If it would be possible to create notifications for certain folders that would be great. Right now I have to scroll and check if emails came in a specific folder daily. Thank you!

  8. Merge Tasks functionality with Wunderlist (or To Do)

    Migrate "Tasks" into "To Do" (or Wunderlist, if "To Do" can't reach feature parity quickly.) Why have 3 to-do functions?

  9. moving emails from the draft folder to inbox or any other folder after moved to draft folder

    You can't move any draft /not sent item that's not what I'm saying. In non beta version you can move emails to any folder including with draft folder. Also after moving that email to draft folder you can move that email to the original folder from the draft folder. In beta version this is not possible. This is convenient when writing email heavily depends on other emails and because switching between is easy. Please include this ability to new mail version.

  11. Horrible idea!

    I think this is an AWFUL idea it looks horrible i accepted the change when you split my e-mails in to 2 sections and decided (for me) which should go under each heading i've decided after looking at the 'beta' that if that's the way you decide to go i'll close my account down. Have you heard the old addage 'If it ain't broke, don't fix if' just a suggestion

  12. search filter

    I typically use the desktop version of outlook as opposed to the app/iphone mail for the ability to filter my search results easily. I can search for a topic and then refine my results by sender. On the beta, I did not have the same ease as I do currently. If the search result filtering ability is not remaining the same to what it is now, or something equally as similar, I would have lost one of my main means in going through my old emails. Please do not affect this ability as it is in the current version. Thank…

  14. Integrate Microsoft To-Do

    It would be very useful when Microsoft To-Do would replace the ugly Tasks feature.

  15. unsend

    Might there be an 'unsend' feature added? I had thought one appeared in the past few months, but I am unable to find it.
    thank you

  16. Signature images as attachment

    If you have a picture as a signature, it is shown in every e-mail as if it were an attachment, it would be easy to avoid the signature part from appearing in the preview of the mail

    It's hard to read the entire email by beta version. three columns seem a little bit dizzy. Not so good beta, hope improvement!

  20. Replying to the sender

    When replying to an email you are unable to respond within the senders reply like in the old version.

    My business partner and I email back and fourth a lot and it is useful to reply to certain points raised directly underneath rather then bouncing back between the senders email and your reply to make sure you have covered what you need to.
