      How about decent readable print? This blue and grey and faded out print is pathetic. I saw an ad put out by Dell a few days ago that was championing a NEW computer with sharp readable print. But Microsoft can't do it?

      • Back button on Android reloads mobile site

        How about getting the back button to work in mobile outlook, after this many years
        Now when pressing back it reloads the entire outlook, or go back to a previous site, instead of just navigating back to the previous view

        • No wonder everyone’s switching to google. You guys are so out of touch with what everyone wants. This is ridiculous hotmail WAS awesome.

          No wonder everyone is switching to gma. This has become ridiculously difficult to do simple tasks, it was perfect when hotmail ran it.
          Now I can’t figure out how to delete 20 year old contacts from my iPhone, I can’t delete mail without refreshing because outlook loads everything in single chunks, too many slide-y windows, pop up notifications, what ever happened to keeping things simple?
          For years I have tolerated these changes hoping I’d get used to it but you still have the most uncomfortable setup I’ve ever used, get with the program. While you do that, I’m dropping my…

            • When your trying to recover an old account but still get declined even with giving all the proper details involving the account in question

              Get real people to help sort through this dilemma by asking them to provide photographic evidence, such as a picture of said client, being in the picture holding a government issued piece of identification. Or even just a true people help line to change the number is said client doesn't have the use of the phone number originally set up for email because it's broken

                • Provide the (obvious) ability to change your password on the mobile site (safari/iphone)

                  Self-explanatory. I would think this would already be an option. I work as an IT business analysts and checked the OBVIOUS places for this option. With security such a concern these days I don't understand why this isn't available. Or if it is, why it isn't fairly obvious how to do or where to access the CHANGE PASSWORD option. JEESH

                  • Consistently unresponsive & jittery on a mobile through a browser. Also, the options are mostly invisible or indecipherable

                    When selecting an email to view it often gets highlighted but seemingly nothing happens, a suggestion is that selecting something takes you to that thing. If taking you there will take a few seconds, then let the user know and don't appear unresponsive.
                    Also, make available options for an email easy to navigate. Perhaps put ext underneath each icon, even if it is all it is better than having to guess

                    • I think it would be really cool if I could change my password.

                      I think there should be a way that I could change my password

                          • You should enable people to look up their login history.

                            Enable users to be able to look up their log in history. I have had a notification saying "log in failed" when I was not trying to log in which makes me think that someone was trying to access my account without my permission. If I could see my log in (or attempted log in) history and list of ip addresses that would help me figure out if I am potentially getting hacked or not. Please make this an option, I would hate to report my account being hacked if it isn't actually being hacked! Thanks.

                                • Integration of different files of MS Office Programs

                                  Personally, I work a lot with Excel and too many times I have to open up at least 3 - 5 different files.

                                  I think it would be extremely useful if users have option to open files individually or as integrated form such as with tabs.

                                  I understand Excel does provide different sheets, but it is difficult to keep track of sheets if all the details has to be on one single file.

                                  If you could develop it in such way that users can open up numerous files into different tabs to work with, it would be much more of…

                                    • Stop innovating for the sake of innovating

                                      Don't add anything. Take things away. Make things simple and functional. 'New' is not automatically good and neither is 'more'.

                                      • Put it back like it was a few days ago. I do not like the format, makes everything go slower. Want to see all my emails at once!!!

                                        Want to change back to the way it was. I think I'm done looking at my emails, then here comes more. I want to have them all come up at the same time so I can pick and choose what I need to see right then and leave the rest til later. I think I'm done and then another one drifts up. Afraid I'll miss one. Give a way to go back to what we had a few days ago.

                                        • Recoverable is lame

                                          When I get a new email and I do not read it, but delete it based on the preview text, it gets sent to my deleted items. When I go to my Deleted Items folder and permanently delete it, it gets sent to Recoverable Emails as expected. However, if I go to the Recoverable Emails folder to empty that out, most of the time it reappears in the Deleted folder which now has a (1) next to it. RIDICULOUS! And why do we need five different steps just to get rid of email!
