    • Terrible experience

      I've tried set it up in connection with my existing Microsoft live account. Problem was that it's been gmail email address and when set up new alias it's generated two looks like £_/==_£€57@outlook corrupted addresses.
      Ohhhh, how great and safe is to be back in "GMAIL"

        • Delete unwanted "conversation history" in Outlook.com

          I just had a new folder named "conversation history" in Outlook.com. I'm unable to delete it, it's empty and I have no idea why it's there?

          Just delete it.

          • Add an option in the Field Chooser for columns for Time Zone to be added.

            My time zones got messed up, no idea how. If affected over half of the birthdays in my contacts and affected how they showed up on my calendar too. Older ones & newer ones were fine but a large amt of others somehow got set to Iceland's time zone instead of Central Standard Time. When that happened, it also changed the birthdays I had entered in the contact detail screen. They were all a day ahead. My notifications were a day late. I couldn't view what time zone was listed in each entry so that I could easily find the…

            • Set recurring appointments by Working Day calendar

              To enable scheduling of regular meetings on, say, first working day of the month, third from last working day of the month (in order to fit with our financial reporting timetable).

              1) "First Weekday" does not take account of public holidays - option to upload public holidays for a nation or sub- region (e.g Russia, England, Scotland etc.)

              2) More options than "first, second, last" - second from last, third from last etc. would be relevant to monthly financial reporting periods

                  • Request for bank details

                    I've had a request through asking to supply bank details to verify the account is managed by an adult. I believe this is because the date of birth is incorrect
                    I am not prepared to provide personal details for an account which has been created by myself. Please advise how I amend or delete the email account concerned?

                    • The inbox font size is still WAY too big. Please give me the option to reduce it.

                      The inbox font size is still WAY too big. Please give us an option to reduce this so we can see more items at once in the mail folders' list view.

                          • Simplify

                            Hadn’t logged in for years. Upon doing so I remembered why. The app is borderline horrible. Emails won’t open. Archive is completely blank and empty. I can’t search anything because the search box disappears and a gambling ad blocks it. Even loading up the feedback page was a glitchy process. All I want to do is look through my mail to see what I missed. That’s it.

                                        • I should not be blocked after entering my password incorrectly one time.

                                          I usually blunder my password once per login attempt. You guys seem to now hold each mistake against me permanently (or at least for several days) so that one day I will mess up once and be locked out just because my lifetime failed attempts exceed an arbitrary threshold.

                                          People are not machines. They ***** up their passwords from time to time. If you can't account for that, I'll do my business on my Gmail account instead.
