        • Bulk delete emails without having to individually select each one.

          Make it possible to bulk select certain messages such as in the junk folder or emails after a search (i.e. bulk delete emails from a source). It is too time consuming to select each email individually to delete it.

            It would be great to have the option to have the unread messages show on top

            • Option to Permanently Turn off/Log Out from Messenger

              Add the ability to turn off Messenger. I do not use it and don't like being auto-magically signed in every time I check e-mail. Thank you.

                  __________________________________

                  Hello Outlook Developer!

                  I would like to be able to forward an email to myself (and to others), to be delivered on a certain date of my choosing, at a time of my choosing.

                  Some messages I receive routinely are invitations to events that I do not want to think about until perhaps 24 hours before the event, or only 1 hour before the event. I do not want to remember to look up an invitation I received 14 or 20 days earlier, because I am…

                  • Date format

                    Oh, come on!!
                    You've got all these different date formats... but why not this one: 01/09/2016 (meaning 1st of September 2016)? Please add this format asap! Or a similar version to it, like: 01/09/16, 01-09-2016 or 01-09-16.

                    • Remove the 500-rule limit!

                      Remove the 500-rule limit!

                      I create "rules" to have advertising email skip the inbox and go straight to a folder. The same goes for many facets of my professional and personal email. I have reached the 500-rule limit and now I cannot have new emails skip my inbox and go straight to a designated folder. I don't want to delete/clear old rules because they are still functional. This is a productivity-crippling glitch that should be resolved. Remove the limit on email-sorting rules. Thank you!

                      • One click similar deletes

                        Please enable options in mailbox with the help of which we can delete mails from a particular user just by single click.
                        If some kind of mail type is annoying me, then just by selecting or marking a type of mail i can block and delete all similar mails from the same sender.

                        • Automatically delete after any custom period of time not just 10 days option

                          The best feature of Outlook is the "delete automatically if message is older than" rule which is brilliant . Strangely it only gives the option to delete after 10 days! That's great but why not several options: 2 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year?? All of these options would be really useful! Please implement it! I cannot wait to take advantage of this feature!

                            The new big round icons you have put on the upper left hand side of the e-mails is extremely annoying. To top that off you are using red for e-mails I get many times a day for stock trading. I suffer from central pain syndrome, CPS which makes looking at the color red very painful to me. Please stop doing this or give me the option to disable it or change the color. Otherwise I will be forced to take my business elsewhere.

                                  I am using IE from a Samsung mobile to access hotmail. Previously I only see the main panel with the emails listed. After I switched off and on the Mobile, I have a new version comes up with a left navigation panel listing mail, calendar, etc.. Last time, I can find a button at the bottom to choose mobile version (change from PC site), now can't find it. I want to remove the left navigation panel. Please help.

                                    • No longer able to create rules dependent upon the email's category

                                      You used to be able to create a rule depending on what category the email was classified as. E.g. I used to have a rule that moved all "Newsletter" category emails to a new folder. Now it seems you can't. I opened my email the other day and suddenly my inbox was filled with newsletters as this functionality seems to have been removed. Please can we have this back?

                                      • Run rules on all emails from all connected accounts.

                                        Let me see all my flagged or pinned emails in one place, no matter what account or folder they are stored in.

                                        • Remove Fraud Tags Manually

                                          Can we have the ability to remove the "This sender has failed our fraud checks" message if we know for a fact it's not fraud? My work email is flagged with this tag and all it is my work schedule.
