    • Go back to previous version

      A "return to previous version" option in settings. And in future ask real people to trial new versions, not your in-house techno-nerds who need to keep their jobs and say yes to all your mad innovations

        • Retain Hotmail User Interface

          Please create a display option that leaves my mailbox looking like it did under Hotmail. I am used to Hotmail, I liked it, and I never asked to be upgraded to anything.

          Please create an option so users who preferred the old appearance and functionality can remain comfortable.

          • Bring back the check box

            There used to be a check box next to each mail that allowed me to select multiple mails and then move them to another folder or delete them at once. Now that it's gone, its takes so much time to do so. Please put it back!

            • 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 :)

              • Support for the standard CalDAV and CardDAV support

                Many third party clients support CardDAV and CalDAV for syncing of contacts and calendars. Mac OSX Mail and Calendars is the biggest example. Lack of support for these protocols is the biggest reason that my Outlook.com account is currently forwarding to my Gmail account, despite the fact I like a lot of features of Outlook.com. This is long overdue.

                • Include a 'view Desktop site' on Outlook Mobile

                  Most websites offer this at the bottom of a mobile version site: please do so, too! Mobile version Outlook is really tedious to use on big phones and tablets: we should have the option to switch

                    • Bring Back "Find all from Sender"

                      Bring back "find all from this sender" when you hover over a sender. This is what made hotmail better than other emails, and allowed me to clean up my inbox easily. I can't believe they took away this feature.

                          • Please Fix Loading Time For Scrolling Through Inbox List

                            From simply scrolling quickly through emails, there is a few second delay where the page turns white before loading each email in your inbox. This is really troublesome when you want to skim through things quickly without being confused with which area you're at within the inbox. If it is because of the "endless scrolling" , I suggest to maybe put in an option to switch to a version where endless scroll is disabled.

                              Please put the login screen back to having user name and password entry on the same screen and not two screens. It is so annoying. What had to be "fixed" that made you do this?

                                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.

                                  • 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...
