    • 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 :)

      • PURGE folder - Add a Select All and Purge All option

        Either add a SELECT ALL option in your PURGE folder (if it's there I haven't found it so make it more obvious) or when offering the option to delete an email - here's an idea actually Delete it - remove it entirely.

            • Bad background colors

              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...

              • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • Display folder location for search results

                        Please can make it possible to see which folder a message is saved in when it has been located using the search function. Not being able to do this is hugely frustrating when trying to organise emails.

                          • Allow more than 5 email addresses in a personal domain for Outlook.com Premium

                            Being restricted to 5 email addresses for a personal domain in outlook.com Premium (when available outside the US) is too limiting.

                            We have a personal domain setup for the family, and currently use 7 accounts for the family members including a few aliases for shortened first names/nick names - and this is just two generations without partners.

                            As the family grows, it is easy to see many families having between 10 and 15 members (parents, family, partners, grand-children), or even more, wanting to use the same domain (as they all share the same surname).

                            There needs to be a way…

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Restore OptionTo Search Email by Date Only

                                    I need to be able to do a search for all the e-mails sent & received on a given date, regardless of who they were to/from. This was easy before but is impossible now. Can you restore this option? Thanks.

                                    • remove message number count from junk folder

                                      Remove Message number count from Junk Mail. I would like it if it only showed a number count for how many new messages you have instead of a number count for all messages that you have. It isn't important to me to know how many messages I have in the folder, but if there are new messages. I noticed this when I set up Office 2011 for mac, and I thought it was a glitch in the software, until I signed in on the web. That is when I saw the entire folder message count was shown. I have used…

                                      • Add folder cell phone

                                        Make a way to add folders on mobile site and app for people who don't have access to a computer and a way to mark mail as junk if phishing spam because my inbox fills up repeatedly because I can't move it. I would also like to be able to mark stuff "not junk" from my phone and to be able to access my junk mail from my iPhone without having to use the app because it uses more data. Also more data compression in the app would be wonderful.

                                        • Feedback on the Apps menu (the tiles)

                                          In the Apps menu (the one with the tiles), Calendar, Powerpoint and OneNote names show up in two lines and it doesn't too good. Comparing the new menu with the old one I see that Powerpoint and OneNote were already two lines before but Calendar was not; it became two lines now because it says "Outlook Calendar" which is arguably too much.

                                          The order of the icons has also changed. The order used to be "Mail, People, Calendar" and it is now "Mail, Calendar, People". Muscle memory makes me click on 'Outlook People' when I wanted to click on 'Outlook…
