    • Adding opt-outs

      You keep adding more and more clutter. No apparent way to delete them. I am not interested in things like Skype, Yelp, Wunderlist, Evernote, yet there they all are; plus, the list continues to grow.

      Too much unwanted stuff. At least give us the option to choose what we want displayed.

      • expand deleted message field

        Is there anyway to expand the number of messages in the deleted folder prior to deleting them (other than paging down and doing additional ones manually)? Flagging the "deleted items box", then the delete instruction, and then confirming to get rid of just 7 messages is tiring.

            • Social Media Tab

              Can I get a tab for Social media alerts, updates, and notifications? Not just a folder but a tab so that I can temporarily toggle social media out of my inbox and deal with "real mail" before I get to the fun stuff.

                • Delete buttons for Add On

                  We need a delete button or some way to get rid of the add ons we don't want to use, like, yelp, wunderlist, boomerang, evernote, pay pal for outlook, and my templates. I'll never use these and they are distracting when your lokking for something else.. In fact I don't know how the got there in the first place without my consent..

                  • There's too much. I want to make my own catagories and folders. Yours confuse things.

                    I would like to organize my own various folders. I can make them and I don't want your selections confusing me. Thanks

                    • Sweep rules improvements in flexibility

                      Sweep rules, allow the previous flexibility and allow editing. My old rules appear to have been migrated and include options like 'keep the latest 5 messages' (or 3 or...) and 'delete if older than 30 days' (and lots of variations. I can't be sure if they are working.

                      New sweep rules only allow 'keep only the latest 1' and 'delete if over 10 days' with no variation. This is poor. There are many situations, where I'd like to stop old emails accumulating, but need to keep the last month's messages, say. I could give examples, but sure you can imagine…

                      • Select all and Move to folder option

                        Hey there,

                        Just want to suggest that add a "move to folder" function or "archive" when the select all option is used. Currently there is only delete.

                        I'm trying to organise mt inbox (there heaps in there) and I don't want to delete the lot.

                        Thanks

                        Kyle

                        • Deleting Mail

                          Hi,

                          When I'm deleting Mail from my inbox, I set the filter to 'from' first as its easier to focus on the ones your definitely not interested in at the time and then delete from there. presently I have to delete individually, but it would be great if we could have a box at the top to delete them in a block? This would save time and hopefully make it easier for people to delete Mail and keep things tidy.

                          Hope you understand what I'm explaining.

                          Regards

                          Paul Marriott

                          • Simplify the Outlook screen

                            In the New Outlook
                            1. I don't see the number of emails in a folder.
                            2. I don't see the size of the email.
                            3. The preview window needs to be separated by a thicker line to avoid confusion between the email headers and the preview.
                            4. The old Outlook was neat and in one line, now you have two lines so it looks very cluttered and busy.
                            5. Hide all unnecessary info and give option to expand with down arrow it we want to view additional information.
                            6. The fonts of the folders window on the left is too…

                                • Move to folder lists most recent folders

                                  If the Move To.. option is going to only have a short list, it makes sense to list the most used, or most recent folders, not ABC order.

                                      • Separate messages by date

                                        I would like it if I could see my emails separated by the date like it used to be before. I get too many emails every day and seeing them altogether makes it difficult to see find them as easily.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • time consuming hassle

                                          Hotmail should categorise mail from social media website in one button so it could be selected all at the same time and deleted by the bin button
