  1. 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.

              • Bring the "Schedule Email" feature from Outlook Mobile to the web

                Outlook Mobile (iOS and Android) have this great feature which temporarily removes an email from my inbox, move it to a "scheduled" folder and return the email to my inbox at the time I choose.

                I think this feature would be very useful if it were part of the Outlook Service itself, not just mobile.

                So the idea here is to bring this scheduling feature to Outlook.com. Add a few quick options to schedule for tomorrow, next week, etc., and an option to pick a date.

                        • See the location of the founded email from the search

                          Maybe very helpfully to see the location of the emails if you have sub maps.

                          Now if you search the mail, you don't see where the founded mail is located!

                          • Break Inbox Down Automatically with easy manual modification

                            Use your artificial intelligence to allow the user to split their e-mail into lets say upto around 4 catagories that they can display in a "tweet deck" type arrangment. They can then drag and drop e-mails from one to the other, and the AI can learn which type of e-mail they prefer where and try to sort these for them when they come in. Sub folders within these can be seen when you tap to expand a specific window.

                                    • mark all doesn't work

                                      When marking ALL on page. It marks only 16(!) messages. Where is the magical number comes from and why not do what you are actually saying and mark ALL on the page.

                                      • FLAGGED ITEMS - bring back the separate file for them.

                                        Go back to FLAGGED items as a separate file, off the inbox page.

                                        • bold line between new mail and flagged mail.

                                          a bold line between new mail and flagged mail. this way you dont have to carefully scan to maker sure where the new emails begin.
