    • dropdown box for GROUPS

      When I migrated from Hotmail to outlook.com I lost the dropdown box for GROUPS and now it is slow and stressful to find and manage a group. Please restore the dropdown box for GROUPS as I know many people on forums have wanted it back

        • Do not create contacts in "Agent Registry Contacts" in Android

          Since the upgrade to the new back-end, contacts created with the Android STOCK APP (not the Outlook app) are created in a special "Agent Registry Contacts" folder. However, other apps (like Windows 10's own People App) are not aware of this folder and contacts created on Android device don't appear on these apps. The only solution currently is to switch to gmail. Using the Outlook app is not a solution, Outlook.com should work with the stock apps.

            The deleted items option for contacts should be included in the mobile version of Outlook.

            • Stop the automatic merger(link) in People

              I met the problem that the contacts would be automatically merged randomly.
              So I want to know if Microsoft would add the option to switch off the function.

              The logic to merged the contacts is very strange in people and I tried to separate some contacts.

              But some time later, some persons would be merged unexpectedly.

              I'm from China, the name of most contacts are in Chinese.
              I didn't know if the language would affect the judgement of the logic of the system to merge the contacts.

              So I think it needed to add the option to switch off the…

              • email of specific address to assigned folder instead of Inbox

                It would be nice if email from one specific email address (person or mail list) would *not* go into the Inbox, but automatically go into an assigned folder.

                    • Limited number of people an email can be sent to

                      Being the Secretary of a sports club I have to send numerous emails to a large contact list approx 58 people. Until today I have had no problem doing this. However when I tried to send an email to the same group today I got the "postmaster@outlook.com reply saying - your message seems to have triggered our Junk filters. Could you edit your message and try again?"
                      After approximately 4 hours of trying to sort this out with Microsoft chat, it has been decided that Outlook has now lessened the number of people in a contact list that a…

                      • Contact Backup

                        Cloud backup of contacts. I have an old windows phone with a lot of old contacts. I don't remember the passcode to the phone, and from what I've seen the only way to get the phone unlocked is to factory reset and delete all of my information including contacts. These are potentially key clients to my business that I would like to have access to and have no idea how to get to them.

                        • Be able to delete a contact using safari login not on web/laptop

                          When using safari to log into hotmail it doesn't allow me to delete a contact.

                          I looked at other links that you sent people & they all only apply to web application. It doesn't work on safari or the app.

                          Please bring back this capability. It's crazy this doesn't already exist. The delete option should be available no matter what medium I'm using.

                                Please could you add full support for contact picture syncing over Microsoft Exchange. This is the one feature that is really annoying for me. It syncs between outlook desktop app and my android phone but not to the outlook.com website. It does appear to sync the first time you add a contact with a picture.

                                • Change My Contacts back to People.

                                  Why is it called People in the People app on Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile, People in Outlook 2016 (Office 365), My People in the upcoming Windows Fall Update, but Outlook.com refers to everything as Contacts rather than People.
                                  The Contacts page is so slow and so unprofessional looking on Outlook.com.

                                  • Import of Business Contact Manager data into Outlook Customer Manager

                                    It would be a great help if Microsoft would allow the import of data from Business Contact Manager (discontinued) into Outlook Customer Manager using a .bcm file instead of only a .csv file. It is not easy to map fields especially when there are detailed business notes in the client history. Also there is no auto link to emails in Customer Outlook Manager. At the minimum, Outlook Customer Manager should have the same features as BCM which was available in an earlier version. BCM was a great CRM for the small business - Outlook Customer Manager lacks the look and…

                                    • Auto-complete suggestions (Contacts)

                                      Is there a possible way to remove the Suggested contacts when sending a new message? These contacts are keep on showing even they are not on my contact list and worst those email addresses has been marked as junk or phishing. There is an option to remove it by clicking on the "X" icon beside the email address but it goes back once you create a new message again! Before, there's a setting in the options menu to "Only suggest people in my contact list" but now it is not available anymore after the upgrade. Is there any chance to…

                                      • Stop auto-add of (junk emails) contacts to suggested & regular contact list

                                        1) stop adding junk emails contacts to suggested contacts & contacts list
                                        2) make "Clear suggested contacts" easier to find
                                        3) re-enable the option to prevent auto-add to suggested contacts & contacts

                                        4) Enable a disable/disengage skype account

                                        • Cannot remove old and incorrect auto suggest drop down

                                          Develop a way to remove old (and incorrect) auto suggest addresses from the mail dropdown list .
                                          This problem has been discussed for years but to date I know of no solution.
