    I still use an older Hotmail Seven app (version 7.8.2.8.46.6837) and it works fine. No forced update to Outlook and notifications etc work fine.

    I also have the same problem. Microsoft says that my account can’t be use with Outlook.com since it’s an old account. I am so worried that I can’t get access to it anymore. Hope someone can help me out. Thank you.

    This Outlook is clumsy, ugly, dumbed down to the point parts do not work well. I just want to have my old hotmail. this is better compare to outlook. I don’t know why they removed swich part.means if someone doesn’t like outlook,they can’t go back hotmail. I just wanna have hotmail not this ugly one.
