    Outlook new UI limits mail msg selection


    Until they just changed the Outlook UI I could select Unread in View on my email, then check the top box to check all, then delete. The same procedure now only checks the first ten boxes. I see no "toggle selection" or "select all" options.

    This UI just kicked in a few minutes ago. I like the old one better.

    Apparently once you make the mistake of logging in via outlook.com instead of hotmail.com you are stuck. On my other account I have only logged in via hotmail.com and still have the old UI. Probably only a matter of time before they spring it on me though.

    If you have an account you use to catch ads and offers then it makes it laborious to only delete 10 msgs at a shot.
