Windows 7: Just about ready to switch over to new "Hotlook"--but---

Just about ready to switch over to new "Hotlook"--but---

Couple things here I've noticed.
Seems to be cross platform, IE,-----Chrome, IE, FF.

*Messaging seems to take forever to load...if it ever does.

*PEOPLE seems to take forever to load...if it ever does.

*See those little colors for themes? 7 times out of 10 those squares are grayed.

*TrueSwitch will not transfer from Yahoo to the new account. My Outlook.com is an alias off of Hotmail.com, IE, the same account. I didn't create a new Outlook acct.
The SEND dropdown shows Hotmail/Outlook/another business acct I send from.
But when I enter 'From Acct/Yahoo...To Acct/Hotmail..I get "We don't recognize that account." Huh?

*Speed of new Outlook is astonishing. Destroys Gmail.

*How can you delete contacts in this new mail? I can't find the button.

I think that's it for now. Any insight appreciated. My constant sign-out problem was caused by Chrome's X-Notifier, which was checking for Hotmail. Which shouldn't have presented a problem as accts are the same, but there you go.

Hopefully that will be resolved, tried POP Peeper and didn't like at all.

Thanks!

I tried it yesterday (and it switched it to Outlook from hotmail). The only thing I noticed is a different color scheme. Otherwise it looks and works the same as Hotmail. ???? I use I.E.9.
