    Previously, emails all showed up in an ungrouped list, and I preferred this on my mobile app for its simplicity. Those of us who keep a clean inbox with few emails in it don't need that grouping to break things up, and it actually makes it more difficult to quickly scroll to the message I want to open.

    Stick with the previous version. I remember the sales pitch when Outlook.com first rolled out -- an uncluttered, simple alternative to the busy interfaces of options like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. As someone who previously used Gmail, the Outlook.com interface was a breath of fresh air and I've never looked back.

    This beta, on the other hand, is the very definition of the word "clutter." The groupings by day that can't be turned off are a visual distraction, particularly for those of us who only keep a small number of messages in our inboxes.

    The "Favorites" grouping of folders is redundant and gets in the way of a clean, customized filing hierarchy (all of the recent additions like "conversation history" and other automatically generated folders pose this same problem -- I don't want my mail client telling me how to organize my messages).

    I know there is an element of "keeping up with the Joneses" going on with this beta and a lot of previously launched functionality, but I'd like to say it would be great if there was any way to strip this all down in favor of the lightweight, easy-to-use, and visually inoffensive structure of Outlook.com's original incarnation.
