    What if you weren't in an inbox though, but a subfolder or sent items right before you press Start button. If you then tap your mail tile it takes you back to the inbox or to that other folder you were just looking at?

    On a quick single test, yes, it goes back to where I was. These detailed behaviours may well change before release though. And I can see the decision to return to last location being a Marmite action.

    Wow, I sure hope they return the current functionality.
    Having to go back through the folder list to select inbox is bad.
    Having all inboxes in the same folder list rather than in their own separate tiles is bad.
    Windows Phone would end up being functionally worse just like ios and android.

    That's the problem, some people might want that behaviour.
    Having all inboxes in the same folder list rather than in their own separate tiles is bad.
    Inboxes are separated by being shown under each account. Some will undoubtedly prefer a unified Inbox and/or the ability to pin Tiles for certain folders.
    Windows Phone would end up being functionally worse just like ios and android.
    It's a long way from being finished. We hope.

    I suppose that would be an ok compromise. Have them all in one unified folder structure for people that like to scroll back through a folder list to inbox. While allowing you to pin a specific inbox to Start so people who like the current way can always get to new mail with just one press.

    I've not tested it, but the accounts list looks to be alphabetical. You could rename <whichever account> to be first alphabetically and see if that opens as the "default".

    Outlook client was the main reason i rolled back to 8.1

    ​Major Flaws:-
    Not getting nofitied when emails are arriving to folders other than Inbox. You have manually check for each folder
    Couldnt add secondry outlook account - add new account only gave ( 365/Exchange and Gmail Option )
    Unable to Pin individual folders to start screen to see if emails arrive to other folders other than inbox.
    No Live tiles.

    Outlook experience on WP is the only reason i am sticking to platform , if this outlook app is going to be same or even worst than Outlook or IOS , there is no reason for me to be on the platform.


    Nadella and Terry - specfiically said Outlook experience will be best at windows platform , but doesnt seem to be the same , this is going to another SKYPE disaster , where they aquired accompli whos engineers have no windows coding talent , just andriod and IOS

    I don't like it at ALL at this stage, and I just now realized the underlying reason why - and no, it's not JUST the hamburger...

    I couldn't get my work email to sync on my W10 test phone - which wasn't a big deal until this morning, when I broke the screen on my REAL phone, so now my test phone IS my real phone, and I kind of need my work mail - so it was off to the Outlook Web App, which I hadn't seen in years. And that was when I realized that the "new" Outlook Mail app on W10 is almost identical to the mobile view of the Outlook Web App - with all the ease of use and overall fluidity that that implies (i.e., very very little).

    A lot of developers like web apps, because they're often easy to write; a lot of companies like web apps, because you only have to write them once for all platforms. The only people who tend not to like them are the people who USE them, but two out of three ain't bad?

    If this is meant as an example of what the "Universal Apps" future looks like, then ugh.

    Of the new features, Outlook is probably going to be the roughest due to where the code/team have come from.
    I'm all for it starting to look close to OWA, but do wonder what's going on underneath it.

    The option to split to tiles is definitely better. Myself, I like the way Outlook is forming into a single system, with the Calendar accessible in the same place you choose different inboxes. If anything, I'd like more integration there: a single Outlook Live Tile rotating between Calendar's date and appointments and Mail's message count and latest message header.

    That would be good.
    I assume Cortana has some pretty good integration with an indexing service. I'd like to see the Outlook client be able to leverage that/its own index too - and let me have my beloved Search Folders. I might head off and see if the Accompli boys had it on iOS/Android.

    For me Outlook should be optional app and MS should not take away the already awesome built-in mail app. MS should learn from previous mistakes and do not force Outlook to its loyal WP fans' throat or lungs.

    MS biggest problem now is that Windows 8.1 phone is growing to its users. I personally like it and update 2 could make it the XP version of the Windows Phone so Windows 10 should not be so drastic that it alienates users just like Windows 8 did.

    I hope MS gets Windows 10 mobile right the first time.

    At present, on first launch it takes me to the Inbox of the first (alphabetically) configured account. Which for me is an annoyance, as it's one of my other accounts I want to be the "default". On subsequent launches i.e. without having closed the app or rebooted the phone, it seems to remember which Inbox I was in and goes there.

    On a "fresh launch" (as opposed to a "resume"), it takes me to my Gmail account, which isn't the first alphabetically (Comcast, Gmail, Outlook), nor is it the first one I added (that would be Outlook, Gmail, Comcast). I can't think of any reason why it would pick my Gmail account - especially given the mutual lack of love between Google & MS :-)


    However, it looks like the plan for W10 is to make "fresh launches" rare - unless you explicitly close an app (long-press on the back button, close its page in the Task Switcher) then every subsequent launch of it will be a "resume." (I haven't decided if I like this yet, but I'm leaning towards "no.")

    Rolling back too coz of call+sms filter which has since stopped working. The rest would have been fine with me.

    No universal inbox any more. :(

    I've got 5 accounts. No way I'm going to flip through them individually. I don't have the Win10 desktop OS. Is the new Outlook Mail the same there?

    No. That's gone in this release.
    I think universal inbox is still there

    I think I would still prefer the current separate tiles where Calendar is its own and shows upcoming appointments, while email is its own and shows newest mail.
    Or if it could be one of the new larger tiles and show multiple items simultaneously.

    I agree, it would be nice if they just enhanced the current mail & calendar apps, then let the new Outlook app be separate.
    They just made the Calendar really great with those "pop-open" views.

    I think virtually anything is better than the incredibly simple mail app in Windows Phone 8/8.1, and I assume the missing features (no live tile, no notifications, etc, are coming).

    I really don't get the "awesome" adjectives when used with 8/8.1 mail/messenger (and, to a lesser extent, calendar). Their aesthetics are basically out of the early 2000s, without any of the design philosophies of virtually any of the popular web apps for the popular mail services, or the popular mail apps on ios and android. I mean, I get the allure of wanting to be different as a response to our chosen platform being so behind the others, but it's not a stance I'll ever support. I'm beyond ecstatic that Windows Phone 10 appears to be trying to actually join the modern era.

    I reverted to 8.1 because I need the email notifications, and don't have a secondary phone to run Windows 10 on, but I'm fairly confident/happy in the direction they're taking mail in Windows 10 (as well as messages and calendar).

    Guys,

    I have a concern,

    In current Winphn 8.1 , In new email you can only attach image as an attachment while replying to any email as the attachment button taken you to the photos gallary.

    I would like to know is their any provision of attaching pdf, work or other files in WinPhn 10.

    Do let me know if you find something.
    I couldn't attach any file using the preview app. This should be fixed on the next update.
