    • Warning of Primary Alias limitation

      A simple warning that you can only change the Primary Alias twice when changing it would avoid the sudden and ridiculous wait of 1 week.

      • Fix issues with personal email addresses on NEW outlook.com

        When the PRIMARY Microsoft account is a personal email, and you have a connected account or sendonly account using THE SAME email address, outlook.com should be able to work out that these are the same account - and only use the connected account to send emails and not have two options shown with the same name, with one of which using the "sent on behalf of <GUID>@outlook.com".

        • No account identity visibility.

          I can no longer SEE which email account I am looking at. I have email accounts at ***@hotmail.com, ***@live.com, ***@gmail.com and ***@msn.com. Since I linked all these with Outlook, there is no visible means for me to determine which account I am working with. I used to be able to hover over my picture and see the account I was working with ... what happened? Working with so many different accounts is confusing enough without being blind to which account is currently being shown. PLEASE ADD THE CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS TO YOUR HEADER! There is a large amount of black…

          • Seamless Experience Between Mobile & Desktop

            I installed Outlook for Android on my phone. I've combined 3 hotmail/live.com email accounts and it works great. It would be great if I could then login to outlook.com on my computer browser and tada - those same 3 hotmail/live.com email accounts all appear without me having to do any more setting up. You want to know why? Because I have 3 different passwords which I tend to forget. And every time I forget a password you make me suffer - big time - even to the point of locking me out of my account.

            • shared mailbox

              Shared Mailbox.
              The feature exists in outlook server, but does not on Outlook.com.

              This feature would be great for spouses who want to keep their own private email accounts, but still want a shared email account that they can use for communication directed at the family rather than the individual (for example, email from the landlord).

              • Forwarding email rules

                Hi, I am unable to forward emails only during certain days, or activate and deactivate easily, or automatically the forward option. It is not possible to set up rules for forwarding emails.
                With Hotmail I was able to write the other account once and simply turn the option on and off. Now since the migration to Outlook, in order to forward, I have to write the email address to forward to every time, and then turn it off every time. Which is a real pain because in my case I must do this twice per week.
                To put it into…

                • rules created on outlook.com is not working for connected accounts

                  rules which was created on outlook.com is not working on the connected accounts. i just had an email conversation with outlook support team and they told like "at present the rules will not work on connected accounts".
                  kindly enable rules for connected accounts as well. rules are one of the best option in outlook. kindly do the changes as soon as possible

                    • Alias creation

                      As already signed into the account, why not make aliases easier to create, by having a button to go straight to the create alias address?

                      • Email (outlook) aliases not visible in "Sent Items"

                        In your SENT ITEMS box, you should be able to see what email address the email was sent from. In other words, if you have multiple aliases under one account, the alias it was sent from should be visible. This used to be the case and now it is not. Very frustrating.

                              I like the aliases idea but wish to swap from one to the other and be able to send emails from which ever one I chose without being locked in or out. You should be able to select from which address you want to send it from.

                                I had 3 hotmail accounts connected to one main account so that all messages can be read and replied to via this one account. I.e I don't need to login to all 3 accounts.

                                So I removed the connected account and tried to add it again but could not. There is something wrong with the smtp server. I contacted Microsoft customer agent via live chat and he couldn't do it and said the servers are…
