  1. 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.

                            Why is there not an option to add a sender to your Safe Sender list in the list where you can report a pfishing scam or flag or pin or ignore or create rule or my friends been hacked. It doesn't make sense that you have to go to settings, then options, and then down to the junk mail settings in order to add your friend to your Safe Senders list. Please make this easier by adding a link with all the other links.

                              • Reinstate full sender email address to avoid virus/malware problems

                                Include the sender email address with sender name. This was there previously and prevented the necessity to click on unknown emails to see who actually sent them.
                                I just had one that was send from 'Ryanair' so I clicked onto it, still couldn't see the sender email address so trusted it was genuine and tried to enter a competition.
                                Thank goodness for my recently acquired Malware detection!! That picked it up and prevented me making a mistake.
                                This is a very IMPORTANT facility that should NEVER have been removed!!

                                • Security of connection with hotmail/outlook - disappearing https padlock

                                  Suggesting some attention to the behavior of hotmail/outlook webmail pages in regard to the page's security status. I'm using Chrome on Windows 10.

                                  I'm finding that when I update my inbox, eg. by deleting a message or moving a message into a folder, the padlock icon disappears and is replaced by the i in a circle. This is apparently because the page tried to load (or loads) images from a http site (ie. not https). If I then refresh the page the padlock reappears - until the next time I update my inbox messages. This issue has been raised on…

                                  • Fido U2F and OTPs

                                    Hi Microsoft,
                                    I would like to know if you are going to implement Fido U2F and stronger one time passwords that support YubiKeys for 2 factor authentication. It would be nice if we could add a security key like on Google accounts. This would be much easier than using an authentication app or receiving text messages.
                                    Thanks

                                      Used to change first and last mame. I do not want the name shown anymore. Nor do i wanna lose my 20 year old email address. Back then forever changed it. Its for privacy of my last name which is accepted by most as jay without issue. Babs is also preferred first name.
                                      How can this be done???

                                        Allow users to inform which countries they are visiting and therefore stop their accounts being blocked as they enter those countries
