    The "me" or "persona" control for myself does not work properly for online/invisible/etc. states.

    Switching to invisible typically does nothing, or switches to invisible for a short period of time. It's back to online very quickly.

    Worse, the control to change online status often just does not work - the drop down with the online states does not come up at all.

    Not sure what's going on here, because it seems to work much better with Exchange/Lync/OWA (vs. Hotmail/Skype/OWA).

    This kind of unpolished stuff is why I cannot suggest Hotmail or many other MS consumer services and products to anyone. We, as a company, don't seem to care much about consumers. Just wait until the world moves past our services and software and onto more polished products from competitors...

    (1) sign in to read email. notice that the status is online - why?!

    (2) change the status to invisible. seems to stay that way. lock the machine. unlock. notice that the status is online again - why ?!

    (3) there does not seem to be a way to sign out of Skype while being signed into hotmail to read email. Why ?! This is clearly supported with normal OWA/Exchange/Lync.

    Overall, OWA for outlook.com is way better then whatever we had before. However, Skype vs. email needs to be decoupled, like OWA for Exchange allows.

    Thanks.
