    Sub folders can be added to the Favorite folders list, but they are not yet presented, and can not yet be viewed, as subfolders. They are instead presented as main folders. I was hoping to use the Favorite folders list to somewhat hide several extra OWA basic folders that do not have and will not have value in my organizational scheme. Since I can't hide at least some basic and useless OWA folders, and I can't recreate my folder structure in Favorite folders, this new OWA interface is still useless to me. I'll go back to Thunderbird again.

    Outlook's new dark theme is cute, and we are finally able to make web view look like a real mail client, however being stuck with MS's folder order is a deal breaker. Can't use the new web view interface simply because my folders can't be made prominent.

    The folders I regularly frequently work with should be primary instead of secondary. MS's folders should be able to be moved out of visual prominence, and/or hidden.

    The new bars for mail replies and switching between mail/search/calendar functions waste precious viewing real estate. Create settings options to allow these bars to be hidden.

    Each time outlook is opened a reminder pops up about notifications being turned off. I know what I did and why. Persistent reminders are detrimental to productivity.

    Since Outlook app is supposed to make processing email easier than other apps, or at least complete well, it seems odd that current design is only set to display the next older message after deleting the current one. Shouldn't we at least be allowed to choose whether to view the next newer message or to move on to something else instead of being shown an older message?

    Because the only Outlook account I have is part of my employment my routine is to progress from oldest new message to newest new message, instead of progressing by perceived importance or some other way. So, after deleting a message the most useful result is to automatically show the next newer email. Most email apps I've used (about 20) at least allow me to such a review, and I've never seen a person choose random review or

    Do microsoft folks not use the outlook app? My guess would be no, otherwise email processing efficiency would be much better than it is.

    A simple choice like what to read after deleting a message should be a standard feature. Several major email apps allow this choice, and I think outlook did at one point. My work flow includes review a message, delete it, review next, delete it, review next, and so on. Having to select the next message so I can review it is less efficient.

    The only reason I'm currently using outlook app is that other apps seem to again be blocked from connecting to the service and/or being able to operate reliably.

    Since I wasn't aware that at least the current rendition of Outlook (Office 365) was designed not to have sub-folders under Inbox and my employer migrated from old to new to newest I now have about 20 Inbox sub-folders that can't be permanently deleted and fill up the folder view column in the app. I've relied on multiple folders or sub-folders to orgarnize my e-mail for quite a few years, and haven't found an acceptable alternative methodology. More than a few of us rely on sub-folders instead of threads and searching a grundle of messages in the Inbox. Some folks prefer to file all papers on the several desks and tables in their office instead of putting them away in drawers, but most prefer folders and drawers.

    General IT and email IT haven't been able to figure out a solution to MS's design choice, and no one wants to delete and re-establish my account, so I'm stuck with a bunch of unusable folders.

    Scrolling past a bunch of empty sub-folders is ineffiecient at least. The app needs to function more like a client and allow subscription to folders in order to clean-up presentation.

    Other aspects of app design bother me, however I've learned that software designers seem to function best when given one idea at a time.

    Building the Read More function into Outlook app seems odd. Were customers asking for something like this, is it supposed to speed access by some minor amount, or just some wild hare that seemed to need chasing. The effort to make the change could have been much better spent dealing with pressing or important complaints.

    Daily I get at least one message that's long (fits a now somewhat arbitrary length rule) and it had been nice to just scroll through looking for content I'm interested in. Instead of simplication this change complicates daily efforts to keep up with duties and responsibilites. It's another annoyance that takes away from productivity.

    I will once again try to find an alternate app for reading outlook based email. Given the option I wouldn't keep an outlook account because of restrictions/limitations imposed similar to this read more functionality.

    Any new functionality should have a switch to allow or disallow. Then if everyone uses it you've won and it can become standard.

    Since I organize messages into folders, rather than lazily relying on threads or frequently searching for what I thought I'd seen, I need to quickly move between main and sub-folders. Having to persistently choose to see sub-folders before jumping to any is detrimental to customer experience. As with the majority of other requests for changes, customization options are the basis.

    Ability to choose to see more, or less, but some reasonable level of visual customization options instead of essentially none.

    Want to be able to see more messages at a time, or less depending on the day. Wasted space is annoying, especially when it's only white.

    Different colors facilitate readability depending on the person. Limiting to white also limits potential customer interest.

    I'd prefer to be able to use the space for previewing messages. Also, initials or images are an annoying distraction. 'Less is more.'

    They take up space that could display more valuable f data.
