    • Opt In to New Capabilities

      It would be helpful within Outlook.com settings to be able to opt-in to beta capabilities - is this possible so as to get the latest and greatest experiences Microsoft is pushing out - and provide feedback through UserVoice :)

      • Make display of right-hand "help" panel optional.

        Make the right-hand panel shrinkable to give more space for reading text. Allow more dense view of inbox, omitting first line of each email's content, in order to quickly delete unwanted emails - like it used to be.

        • Revision ideas for new Outlook Mail Preview (loved Hotmail)

          I LIKE A LOT OF THIS NEW OUTLOOK MAIL PREVIEW. There are some things I really find annoying.

          MICROSOFT, BORROW FROM THE GENIUS OF YOUR OTHER PRODUCTS. HOTMAIL AND WORD.

          EDITING MY EMAIL Use the brilliant method you have in WORD so when editing, we simply slide the mouse over specific passage, HOLD THE BUTTON, slide cursor to the new location...and release. I have no idea why you use such a complex method here, when you had such genious.

          PRIORITY SENDING EMAIL TO GROUPS OR EVEN MULTIPLE RECEIVERS. Borrow HOTMAIL'S method, simple, logical. Never ever had a problem. I loved…

          • Send group messages

            I am unable to send a group message unless I use an old email and "reply all" or the "forward" functions since the upgrade. Why?

            • GO TO DATE FUNCTION

              Previous version of outlook had a GO TO function at bottom of page. Need to bring back this function as you can't search for a particular date anymore.

              • Opening up features in a New Tab

                Opening features (contacts (people), word, etc) in a NEW TAB. I once again want to be able to open this features up on my computer, I don't want to be close a a tab to go into the feature. Or better still make sure all the features that are being offered actually work. Right now many of the feature or parts of it are useless, get your act together, you are making us all very frustrated and angry.

                  Background colors not great. Hard to distinguish between flagged messages and regular ones... A change in colors or giving the user the option to select custom colors would be nice...

                  • Add support for "Tags/Labels" in the message list and "Annotations/Comments" in the message view

                    Tags/Labels in the Message List:

                    I find Gmail's color coded Labels extremely useful for organizing and filtering my mail, and its something I would appreciate in Outlook. I know Outlook allows tagging via Categories but this feature has two major limitations:
                    1) You can specify only one category to each mail, unlike Gmail in which a mail can have multiple labels.
                    2) The visual presentation of labels (color coding, label display location) is much better.

                    I would like to see a similar feature in Outlook, whereby we can add multiple color coded custom "tags" to each mail and which can…

                    • print icon

                      Add a print icon. it's annoying to have to search for it by going to drop down arrow and then select print. Its handy just have a print icon on the bar with reply, delete, archive, junk, etc.

                          • Less click please

                            I use " Move to " and " save draft " a lot. Now I can't find those on the top bar, so I have to click "..." part . Also after clicking "move to ", I don't see all categories so I have to click " more " . Much more clicks to go where I want to go ! I don't like this.

                              • Easy migration from GMail and Google products

                                Hi guys!

                                You are doing a great job so far, that's why some people want to move from GMail and Google products to outlook, but there's a problem...it's so difficult to move everything from one place to another. Would be great a tool to import all the emails, calendar and contacts with images and all data in just one step, giving rights to outlook to connect to gmail and everything is done, 24hours later all your data is in outlook moved (copied) from gmail.

                                • Copy/Paste Nerfed?

                                  Let people copy and paste the email address from an email. rather than binging up a contact info pop up and having no ability to right click. I like adding new addresses to pre existing sorting rules so copying email addresses is an essential.

                                    • Follow-up: Outlook Mail changes

                                      A follow-up to my comments last week about the Outlook Mail preview.

                                      The view I'm seeing today is much improved. Thank you.

                                      Thank you for doing away with the buttons that had me guessing what action I was taking. Thank you for restoring the words "Send" "Reply" "Move" etc in the menu bar. Thank you for restoring the gear icon to find settings.

                                      There are a couple more improvements I would like to see:
                                      1) In the "Move to Folder" section, instead of having to click a link to show more folders, and thus open another box, please just show…

                                      • "Move to" button should list folders alphabetically

                                        Make the "Move to" drop menu have a full alphabetical list of folders, rather than sorting by most recently used. Or at least make it an option to switch between alphabetical and recent.

                                        • Allow consumer users to pin apps in the top/black bar

                                          We should allow consumer users to pin their preferred apps to the top bar, like o365 does.
