  1. There are issues with multimesssage selection on the main mail box.

    The issues appears on the mobile web (Chrome) version. When attempting to select messages over several days or more than 3 messages at once, the selection disappears. When attempting to reselect those previously selected messages, the big behavior seems to disappear until adding a new message to the selection, then the selection entirely disappears again.

    This bug is particularly annoying since I m using Outlook live principally via mobile web - installing the app is not considered as issue solver :)

    Hope something can be done soon,

    Cheers, Mathilde

    • Select multiple mail messages

      As part of the latest update of the Hotmail web interface it is no longer possible to select and move multiple mail messages from one folder to another. This makes the simple task of organizing the inbox virtually impossible using the web interface on a smartphone.

        • Allow opt-out of having search results in "relevant" (ie random) order

          Search results list is now returned in the order Microsoft "thinks" is most relevant - ie, the list is random and useless.

          There is no sort option.
          It is not even possible to copy the list into excel to sort it there.

          This change should be reversed so that the list appears in date order, with sort options on the other columns.

          At the very least an opt-out should be provided.

          • Bigger checkboxes

            Current size is not suitable for a finger on a cellphone screen. Have you tried to select several messages without losing the previous selected?

            • Slide-over menu on an email should include "mark as spam"

              When we slide over an email it reveals option, mark as read, flag etc. There needs to be one to mark as spam.

              Second, having to physically select one email at a time is painful. Considering you could click to multi select previously, it only allows selecting emails in the current screen. It deselects the ones out of view if you've already selected them. Please fix
              Thank you

              • Email total

                Email total - the previous version of Hotmail stated the number of emails in your mailboxes - the new version doesn't, please advise why this has been removed and can it be re-instated please?

                    • Item Checkboxes

                      When using the web version, the checkboxes are not easily clicked. When trying to select multiple items it is very easy to accidentally click off of a checkbox and select an email which causes you to lose your previous selections. Please either make the boxes bigger, or make it so it doesn't lose your previously selected items.

                      • Outlook should learn how I categorize and move certain e-mails and then bubble up those actions when processing similar mail

                        I find myself often moving emails from the same senders to certain folders. I know that I can make rules to do this, but there are some emails that I don't want to automatically move to those folders. I want to review them first. In those situations, when I right click or long press on the email: Along with move, delete, forward, and other actions, Outlook should have some intelligence and also list actions of what I normally do with emails from this sender or with similar content.

                        Also, more recent Move destinations need to be available. Screens are higher…

                        • Show unread message count on Junk folders

                          Please provide an option to display the number of unread messages in the (left pane) folder list for the Junk email folder. This makes it easy to review Junk messages periodically, to determine whether any messages were erroneously tagged as Junk. For all email folders except Junk and Drafts, this is the normal behavior. It would be useful to have an option to control this on an individual folder basis.

                            • conversation arrow difficult to see (quickly)

                              In the beta version the conversation arrow is difficult to see quickly and should be larger. The icon is large, but the little arrow in the message to expand the conversation is too small to see on a standard desktop monitor.

                              There should be a way to turn off conversation view. Personally, I like the old single message view better.

                              • Speed up deletion process

                                On iPhone when you delete an email on Google Chrome browser it comes back always. How about some cross browser compatibility or don’t allow us to visit on mobile period because it doesn’t work correctly. Instead redirect us to the app where you have developers that care about user experience!

                                  • older mobile site version was way better and safer then the new one . as you could select the squares and delete without opening .

                                    older mobile site version was way better and safer then the new one . as you could select the squares and delete without opening . where now that is impossible . if you want to delete . it opens anyway . even virus mails or spam
                                    Bring the old one back please
