  1. Provide Spell Check functionality

    The new Outlook.com web app uses the Spell Check feature in the browser. If you're using an older browser (such as IE9 or older), you may need to upgrade to the most current version of your browser. Or, there are third party spell check apps available for older browsers.

    • Outlook runs slower than dirt

      Suggestion??? How about just making Outlook run faster. It's slow and freezes up in Google Chrome, and sometimes it runs slower than my old 300 baud dial up modem did back in the late 1980s!

          • Category - delete option

            An option where I can delete a category.
            I made all the categorys I have in my hotmail by mistake, because I rushed a little bit, I guess, and pushed the "create category" - butten, when I actually wanted to create normal folders.

            Please write sulotion if there is already such a thing.
            Thank you.

            • Email Templates

              Everyday I need to send out emails that have the same format and recipients. Something I would like to see is the addition of templates which the user can customize, which would include a specific list of recipients and also text or formatting of the user's choice.

                • Send bigger files

                  To enable larger space when sending emails so that if you were sending a large document, or multiple images over email you can send more than just 2 or 3 at a time when you have many to send.

                  • Copy Paste / Drag drop text by mouse

                    I tried to paste some text in the compose window but it doesn't works. Only Ctrl + V method works. Why mouse method is NOT supported?

                    Also: Why is it not possible to copy paste, or drag and drop some text from different sources (windows) to the Outlook.com compose window?

                    • Allow a 'plain text only" message and a plain text only flag per contact (multiple platforms)

                      Previous versions of Outlook (mac and win) permitted a truly plain text only option for sending messages, and a option in Contacts to tell Outlook to use plain text only for this recipient. The "plain text" preference for composing messages appears to exist, but unreliable in application, and the setting in Contacts appears to have disappeared entirely. For those of us who need to communicate with people who can handle text only, can both of these options be corrected?

                        • Compose addresses

                          Please go back to the "Hotmail" way. I used to see suggestions for address when I started to type in a name, even those that I had previously emailed that are not in my address book. Now only those that are in my address book show up. Also it only gives me the top 20 of those in my book. This is terrible. Sometime I list people by company name and need to scroll through to find the right person...now I can' see them all. PLEASE go back. This new way takes too much time.

                          • E-mail addresses automatically inserted from past e-mails

                            I used to be able to type a name in the TO box and if it was from someone that had emailed me in the past - up came the email. No more????????? This is beyond frustrating that you now want me to make every single person a contact - why???? What a monstrous wastye of time. My company's corproate Outlook is so much easier to use - and so much more responsive. Why did you remove this - or make it something i have to elect?

                            How do i get htis back so i do not have to look…

                              When typing a new message, is it possible to have "I" automatically capitalized and when starting a new sentence, having the first letter of the first word automatically capitalized?

                              • Linking People contact emails to outlook emails

                                When I try to type in people's email address into new emails I am no longer able to automatically see a list of contacts that are saved in my People function. This means I need to go into People find a the contact and cut and paste their email address into the new email. Super annoying and time wasting! I hope this can be resolved soon. Thanks!

                                    Can you introduce advanced options to email sending?

                                    I tend to become infinitely better at spell checking etc in the 2 seconds after I hit 'send'. Could you introduce a feature where I could optionally delay the sending on an email for eg 10 minutes after I hit send. If I found an error I could then cancel sending it and I could make amendments to it as I wanted.

                                    I would also quite like some kind of drink check - For those moments when it's after 11pm on a Friday and my mind moves to work things and I…

                                      I would like to get some more colors in email body and email signatures. Thanks

                                      • Support input unicode Emoji

                                        In composing window, there is an Emoji button and we can input emojis from there. However, the emoji is NOT Unicode text emoji but just images. So please input Unicode emojis from Emoji toolbox.

                                        • back button for email composing

                                          A back button when writing emails would be awesome. I hate it when I've spent a bunch of time composing the perfect words, only to have accidentally highlight a hunk of it just before I hit the wrong buttons and lose most of what I'd just done. Grrr!

                                          Please
