Does newest OWA have folder options? October 2011

    Question

  • In the latest version of my company's Outlook Web App (see version info below), please tell me:

    Where are the folder options?

    I only want to see one line of text per message in all my folders, Inbox especially. I was able to do this in my company's previous version of OWA - sorry but I don't know that version number. Why did Microsoft remove/obfuscate any "Folder Options" in this version of OWA? I need the ability to maximize the number of messages per screen by only showing one line of text per message - in all folders. Here is the layout of my Options | Settings | Mail screen, in this version of OWA:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    E-Mail Signature           Read Receipts

                                         Reading Pane
                              
    Message Format           Conversations

    Message Options          [blank space - this would be a great spot for "Folder Options"]

     

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At least a note in Options | Settings | Mail would be helpful: "Folder options [are no longer available] [etc...] in this version of OWA."

    I feel like I am posting this in the wrong forum. I detest the way forums are done these days. Why can't it be easier?

    I am using Internet Explorer 8, version 8.0.7601.17514. I am at the mercy of my company; per company policy, users can't upgrade their web browser until the company pushes the update to our laptops.

    Here is a copy/paste from the Help/About of my company's current version of Outlook Web App:

  • No, it's not very flexible is it?  Pretty, though, with all those themes.  I guess that's what matters most nowadays.  By one line of text per message, do you mean having the sender and subject on the same line?  The only way to get that, I think, is to go for the 'light' version when you sign in.  Trouble is, you lose some of the interactive features of the GUI.

  • Yes, I know where the "Options" button is located, in OWA 2010. If you read my post, I indicate the path from pressing that link/button: Options | Settings | Mail

    Thanks for replying though.
