  1. Eliminate Subscriptions Section

    It’s pretty much useless, especially when all it has is a bunch of spam I haven’t signed up for. It either displays links to malicious sites when trying to unsubscribe, or the automated e-mail it generates will let the spammers know it’s an active account. At least I’d like to see the option to get clean up the list of unsubscribed newsletters or whatever.

  2. Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations. Make it optional.

    Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations and I suspect a lot of other Outlook users don't use it. Why do you nerds insist on making everyone in your image? Make the **** thing optional.

  4. Allow "Unblock account" to use backup email not just SMS

    I can reset my password using the backup email I gave you, but you won't use it to unblock my account, you only accept SMS. I don't have SMS. Please allow the backup email on file to be used for account unblock as well as password resets. Also, "Contact Support" requires sign in, which you can't do if your account is blocked, please allow that from the registered backup email as well.

  9. The 2-point verification has not helped to secure my emails. I have two separate emails with Outlook and both have been hacked several times

    The 2-point verification has not helped to secure my accounts. I have two separate email accounts with Outlook and both have been hacked into. Today alone I have had to change the password on both accounts 3 times today. Both accounts have the 2-point verification and I also downloaded the separate Authenticator App. How do I recover my accounts?

  10. Easy tab

    Why can’t there be an easy tab for security settings. Why can’t you just click on a tab that shows your backup email, password settings, security questions and be able to change everything from said tab? Why is that so difficult? Why do I even use this stupid email?

  11. Misleading Uservoice website URLs

    The only working uservoice link is displayed at: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/how-to-get-outlook-com-support-f5482a98-616c-4d44-b7c5-8aaaadf5c11a where there is this link: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=866961 that goes to forums/284136...
    If you simply go to outlook.uservoice.com this forum is not listed at all, and the link for outlook.com goes to a LOCKED forum at https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/601444--the-new-outlook-com
    This is confusing. Which one is which? Why do you have multiple ones? Even your own support people don't know the difference, how should average users be able to use any of these then?
    And since many issues here were ignored with a generic answer from a bot, let this be a feature request: have only…

  12. Please make the iOS app capable with older versions of iOS I'm on 10.2.1 and it no longer works.

    The app no longer loads and asks me to update and takes me to the App Store. App Store says no update available. I tried downloading the app again and says it only works on newer iOS updates. Not happy as I like the update I'm on. And do not want my phone to slow down. Which has been proven. Thanks

  13. The buttons

    The buttons are hard to hit in your outlook mail website and I'm on my mobile phone I have to press it like 10 to 20 times to get into my mail ? I had many mobile phones and buttons are hard to hit on all of them on your site? Can you please make them easier to hit?

  16. Login accesss

    My idea is not to have to enter the name of the provider, Outlook.com or Hotmail.com, if you are already on their page, it would be more practical to just enter the login name of the user.

  20. Dutch version, some untranslated texts

    The Dutch version still contains some untranslated texts:
    Reply to a mail message.
    Use the button with the three dots.
    It says 'Hide from' in this menu, should be translated with 'Verbergen voor' or so.
    If you click 'Urgentie instellen'(Urgency), there are three options. One is 'High' which is untranslated, should be 'Hoog'.

    Also, if you click on your account picture, the secont option is 'View account'. This could be translated as 'Profiel bekijken' or 'Bekijken'.
