Old version - how do I get it back???
The new version of Outlook mail doesn't work well on my phone. The calendar won't even open. Do I have an option to revert back to the older version?

Bring back the old version. New version is too busy and it’s confusing

The new version of the calendar on my phone is really difficult to use. Entering an appointment is really challenging. Please tell me how to revert back to the older version. You can do a much better job than this! Not impressed.
This isn't working. Please allow people who don't enjoy the changes to use the previous version. This version does not separate emails by day. I am not a fan of the functionality on my phone and it isn't cute if we're being honest. It looks thrown together. My young child could've made a better platform.
It is difficult to categorize items on my calendar and the colour does not show well.
The older version worked better and the colors were brighter and easier to access
I'm on Samsung mobile phone with Chrome. When I try to get to the BCC field, the CC field's AutoFill / AutoComplete appears and covers the BCC field up. If I clear the CC field, the BCC field collapses / hides with it. At present, I have to select a dummy CC address to access the BCC field, type the BCC, then clear the CC field.
Suggestion: Please have an option to always show BCC field.

Finding the new outlook/hotmail on my phone terrible. It is making using email slower than before. I see on the feedback other people are equally frustrated. I appreciate the thought and effort behind changes but it is not a helpful change just a hindrance. Any chance it can be put back to how it was before?
I dont like not having my folder list to the left. I dont like having to click to see a message I'm replying to. I find if I delete a message the screen jumps about and I'm not looking at where I was in my list. It look a bit childish too. The list goes on but that's enough for now. So much for looking after mental health...

I need the old version back ASAP. This is completely unworkable on mobile phones. No option for marking emails high priority. Who on earth came up with this?
I need the old version back. Who in their bright mind would do something like this during a pandemic and now more than ever were working from home.
Hello, I really need my other inboxes for business back ? Why only limit to just the user, then it’s no different than a regular email ! Can we have the option to have the old version back? This is terrible.
I no longer see the revert to classic option. Newer version is an eyesore, how can I revert back?

How can I add a shared in box? I have no access to the business email that I need to be able to get when I'm not in the office
Just bring back the old one. It worked.

Do developers always think they know what is best for users, like stinking politicians? Why is it they never give you a choice but force the really unpopular outlook new view in a mobile browser and then remove the option for old view even though I never used the new view? For pete's sake just give users a choice!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I will likely not use this stupid email on the phone!
I lost all my orher email access that are essential for my Work at home. Can you restore it rapidly please ?
Update = ****. I want to change to the old version. How to do it?
I want the old version back. How do I get it back? We should have the option how to sort and manage the emails.
Android - Created chrome shortcut on home screen for outlook. I'm not able to close using back button. I hv to kill outlook shortcut/window
The old one back PLEASE.
Give the ootion to select new or old style
The new style is not helping at all
I did everything they said to get it back but there is no toggle to move etc
Are we stuck with this now???? It has removed all of my shared email accounts without warning. I have to have them. And not easy to re-add then I've tried for hours 🤬
