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?

I can't access my emails or send a message or receive a message. I use an AT&T flip 2 phone.
As a Product Manager, I can appreciate that you want to know what people like and don't like about the new interface. Unfortunately it seems to me that there are so many things that are disliked that you need to rethink the strategy of forcing this new interface on your user community.
At very least you need to start asking pointed questions about the changes you made to understand if they are improving the user experience or not. From what i have seen so far, the updates have degraded user experience and satisfaction.
The old version is way better than the new one.. the new interface doesnt look clean and too slow to read messages even accessing the new outlook is too slow.. i want the OLD version.. the OLD version is absolutely amazing in terms of look, use and interface than the new one. CAN WE PLEASE GET BACK THE OLD VERSION? I am not happy with the new one..
Can I please get back the Old version of Outlook! How to do it? I'm not happy with the new one😡!

you Don’t need more details! The user wants the classic view back. So do I. The question pending is: is this possible and if yes, how? Answer please. You don’t need more details.
Good day Outlook developers🤝
I would sincerely like to request that the old Android outlook version be returned, because this new one doesn't have the read/delivery request options for mobile phones (Android).
This version is incredibly faffy, Its really hard to use the slidey toggles tool adjust the time of an event, you should give the option of manually inputting the time. to hard to do that on a phone, feels much more clunkier than it did before. You shouldn't favour what you think looks cool to actual usability

I absolutely hate the new version of outlook. How can I get the old one back?
With the newest version of Outlook for the Web on a mobile browser the Approve/Reject buttons for an approval email do not show anymore. They showed and worked in the previous UI.
Bring back the old version of outlook!!.

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.
