    Unfortunately they've removed the ability to range multi-select messages in your inbox and delete them. Currently you have to click on each individual email checkbox and then delete. Very frustrating, as you used to be able to click the first then hold shift and click the last and it would select them all and you could delete.

    Why does the team insist on changing, removing features; especially ones that are so basic. I am a software developer so I understand the desire to add features to a product and to make it better. However, the decision to remove a feature that users depend upon should not be taken lightly. Hotmail is quickly becoming unusable. There are other things that are going wrong with the new version as well; e.g., stale data showing for the inbox on login. Unfortunately for me, I've had an account for 10+ years now, which makes it difficult to switch. Sad

    As a workaround, you could always use Windows Live Mail to read your Hotmail...it's a great desktop app!
