    • Being able to report e-mails in Outlook phone app as phishing scams / spam!

      I can report phishing scams from Outlook Email on my PC but there is no option for this from my iPhone when checking my e-mails on your app on my phone - can you add this please as all I can do is delete stuff or move to my junk folder so the only way to cut down on getting this spam is block each address individually on my phone. Very time consuming and is not helping you or others identify it as phishing scams or spam.

        Hi,
        Do something to sign out my handy from hotmail. It says "You are sign out" but If I try to sign again I am "IN" whitout Password. This is not good for protection.

        Have a nice day,
        Milan

        • Delete after delete

          Why doesn't delete mean delete? There is an option to archive, so why does delete also archive and require a purge to delete?
          Why doesn't the delete from recover allow for 'select all' which would speed the process enormously and allow users to clear space for your benefit, or is it to your benefit for the messages to be truely deleted?

              Add an encryption feature involving a password known only to the sender and receiver.

                • Outlook E-Mail Logging

                  Greetings Microsoft Outlook, I have a suggestion regarding Outlook e-mail Account Security. I suggest that a website be created to contain log-in date's and time of all log-in's. Altering the data by anyone logged into the site should be prohibited. Also, two-step verification should be an option. Kind regards, Mark D. Miller.

                        Hi,
                        I always travel to many countries,everytime i arrive in een another countrie lets say Thailand or come back to my country Belgium i always have to identify me and my account (with stupid questions like the name of my pet,passwords and other stupid questions) etc.
                        I really hate that,its takes time and i dondt feel for such an idiotic game.
                        last time it took me 2days to connect me again with my e-mail account.
                        please tell me what i can do, to no have that problem anymore! i want to open my laptop or smartphone and connect immiditly all…

                          • Display sender's address by default when viewing individual email

                            In the outlook.live.com web interface, when I click on an individual email to read it, the sender's email address is not visible. I have no idea how to make it visible. It should always be visible. Among other reasons, this would make it easier to determine whether an email is spam.

                              • Security questions instead of code

                                When signing in from a new location, add the possibility of answering a security question instead of the code you send. The code may be secure, but it can, depending on the circumstances, be impossible to use.

                                • Passwords

                                  When someone changes the password he or she does it for a reason! Keeping the other services online while the account is already changed is a very bad option! You should put the option to everyone that changes the password if they want to log out of all the other devices!
                                  Please have that in mind! You will not lose anything and your customers will be more satisfied!

                                      • Option to change phone number for receiving security texts/call.

                                        Introduce a way to change the phone/text number to send the security code to. I no longer have the same phone number and cannot find a wasy to update this.
