        • Name change

          When a business changes its name or ppl get married/divorced (or in my case when a business owner doesn't put in the right acronym for business name), having the option to change how the name appears to email recipients makes life easy. There should be an easy option in settings for that change. If it already exists, show me!

            • Sending email from outlook.com does not work when primary email address is a non-Microsoft alias

              Since several days I experience an issue with sending email from outlook.com when I use a non-Microsoft alias as sender address.

              I personally have configured my Outlook.com account with firstname.lastname@outlook.com as primary email address, and have also configured an alias firstname@lastname.de which I usually use to send emails. This works fine.

              My wife has configured her outlook.com account with her firstname@lastname.de as primary email address. When she tries to send emails with this alias as sender it won't work, from all devices (Windows 10 laptop using mail, Samsung Galaxy S7 using Samsung Mail or using outlook.com online via web). The…

                I really need to change email addresses without creating a new account. But I want it to automatically default to the new alias

                • Make it possible to assign a unique display name to main and each alias email. At this time only one display name is possible!!!!

                  Make it possible to assign a unique display name to main and each alias email. For instance I have a main email address of JoeBlow@hotmail.com and an 'alias' email address of Tennis@live.com. I want two display names -- Joe Blow and Tennis Joe. At this time only one display name is possible!!!

                  • Solve IMAP bugs on gmail and other connected accounts

                    It would be good if IMAP worked on connected accounts! Items deleted in outlook.com on IMAP account or gmail are not deleted on other connected devices. Emails sent on outlook.com from connected IMAP account do not appear in any sent folder on outlook.com nor on other devices (this works on gmail). If items are moved between folders in the connected account in outlook.com this does not ripple through to other devices. If these things are done on other devices, they do ripple through to outlook.com more reliably.

                    I'm trying to start using outlook.com as a reliable way of managing calendar,…

                        • Warning of Closing of Account

                          This option may no longer be as relevant since Microsoft seems to have undergone vast upgrades to the service and experience of their Hotmail and/or Outlook accounts. However, I had opened and consistently used for a few years a Hotmail account in my early adulthood. As times changed and other services (i.e. Google) were more paramount, I neglected my Hotmail account (i.e. distinctly did not use it for a year or more). Granted the Hotmail account was free and involved terms of service, my use of this account was understood as an implicit partnership and to Microsoft's interest was a…

                            • Fix problem with disconnecting accounts

                              I'm having trouble disconnecting accounts that were once connected to my Outlook account. I connected the accounts and was getting e-mail from them forwarded to my Outlook address. But when I wanted to disconnect them they weren't listed on the 'connected accounts' page. I tried connecting them again and they then showed up on the page - but when I deleted them on the page I still got the forwarded e-mails. Microsoft Community suggested selecting 'stop forwarding' on the forwarding page and clicking save. But 'stop forwarding' already selected, and even if I selected 'start forwarding' and then 'stop forwarding'…

                                • When you don't have access to your other outlook.com account a msg. should be sent to you notifying you of such.

                                  I thought that was what I was doing in the above typing, but I will post the issue again. When I lost my other account of norjon7@outlook.com, I went through the steps necessary to obtain it again, but never was able to do so. I have since bought me a new tablet and a new laptop and still am unable to gain access to this account. Please help

                                  • Implement correct alias work wih Office Outlook

                                    I have the Send and Receive connected account, which sends mails via SMTP server of alternate provider. Works OK with web interface and Windows Mail, but Outlook 2016 creates "send on behalf" messages and send it from Outlook.com mail servers, and this is 95% NDR. It worked correctly with Office Outlook before migration to Exchange Online platform, and it long waited fix.

                                    • Reinstate option to link+toggle dual/multiple accounts again, as was once the case. (Not via 3rd party)

                                      Please reinstate the option to link accounts again, as was once the case. Thus, enabling an efficient means of toggling through them.
                                      (I'd prefer not to resort to registering with a 3rd party merely to be able to perform this simple but invaluable function.)
                                      Currently I find myself having to log in and out all day long to try and keep on top of things, often missing important messages coming in and compromising the ability to act upon them in a timely manner.

                                      • Alias Purchase

                                        Hi I know and understand that you limit the number of alias emails to 10 within a single outlook.com account. I would like to be able to add a few more alias emails to my account. It would be wonderful if Microsoft allowed a user to purchase additional alias email addresses after the limit of 10 is reached. I’m not looking for many so a purchase limit of 5 per year with maybe a maximum of 25 addressss would be sufficient. I think a purchase price of $5 per address would be a reasonable price. This would allow me to…

                                        • Bring back unlimited Hotmail account alias

                                          As I recall 4-5 years ago, Hotmail had a feature that allowed you to create multiple aliases under one account, whether it was under a Hotmail domain or an outlook domain. Now it is just Outlook. Please allow those with Hotmail aliases to use unlimited aliases again. Thank you.
