  1. GIve me a means to get rid of the Conversation History folder that I didn't ask for but which appeared in my Folders today.

    Allow me to delete conversation history folder from my Outlook. Didn't ask for it, don't want it!

    • Don't block accounts for no reason. Makes you guys seem like idiots.

      Just seriously stop doing this **** this is twice now, my accounts aren't being hacked, used to send spam, or for literally ANYTHING except waiting for emails from one specific source each. Entirely unprofessional and just plain stupid - if my main email which is tied to 100+ websites wasn't already Hotmail I would have stopped using this service years ago because it does **** like this all the time. Special hint for you - sometimes nothing .... Is actually nothing.

      • Adding folders on hotmail app

        Really disappointed that I can’t create a new folder in my hotmail account when logged in via app or safari online. This would make it much easier to manage emails whilst on the go

          • Ads without sound please!

            It's OK to have ads on Outlook of course but the messages scream at you again and again and there's no way to turn them (except by turning off the speakers). If this continues, I'm going elsewhere for my email. In any case, I'd never use the services of ads that annoyed me. Please, MS, do something!

            • Search order options

              Have search order options for Chronological. This should be here and is totally basic.

              • Safe link (SafeLink) feature is impeding URL visibility

                Starting earlier this month for me (I think it's being rolled out gradually), non-MS URLs in incoming Outlook.com mail have taken the form of what you see below (I've lopped off the majority of it, but it goes on and on, typically with hundreds of characters).
                https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https................

                The only thing that Support seems to know about this is:

                1) That it's supposed to be a new feature only for Premium users: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Advanced-security-features-in-Outlook-com-Premium-551ddf23-7f35-4697-8a71-30b3359362dd

                2) That Outlook Engineering will roll out a future release to improve the look of the safelinks.

                No word as to HOW it will be improved (no…

                  • Hotmail login screen - Change it back to plain white instead of the the landscape which shows a sun flickering and covers the login fields

                    HOTMAIL LOGIN SCREEN - Why did Microsoft change the white screen a few weeks ago to a landscape view that shows a sun flickering and covers the login fields. Cannot see or access the fields to sign in?

                      • all my emails are missing! why have they been deleted

                        what gives you right to delete all of my emails that ive had over the last 7-8 years?
                        you state that if there is no activity for a year all emails will slowly be deleted, however when speaking with microsoft support they advised me that if im not logging in at least 2-3 times a month many of my emails are being deleted and permanently deleted...which one is it microsoft? why lie to your consumers for? why was there no correspondence to alert consumers of these changes that emails will be deleted ? i am absoultey outraged and disgusted! Surely…

                        • connected

                          I often leave Outlook running when I leave for the weekend. I've run into issues where Outlook is no longer connected to my email server, but it is very difficult to notice this.

                          I'd like to have the option to change the font color if the connection status.

                          For example, it is hard to notice the difference between
                          Connected to: Server
                          and
                          Not Connected to: Server.

                          Basically, I want to call attention to this since it drastically impacts me.

                          • The platform is becoming less stable, especially when accessed through web browser. Ads now appearing in platform “inbox”, poor!

                            Poor stability of platform especially after last update. More advertising forced upon the user.

                            • Inbox folder split in 2

                              Dear Outlook Team, I have used uoutlook (hotmail) for more then 10 years now and I have always found it quite good.

                              But I find the new inbox folder split in 2 utterly annoying and unnecessary
                              Who decides if an email should be in "focused" or "other"?! Certainly not me.
                              I really don't get the logic.

                              Also, I was never asked if I wanted to have this new feature implemented.
                              Is there a way to go back to the normal 1 inbox folder

                              Many thanks

                              Kind regards

                              Eliodoro

                                    • Merging of separate email chains

                                      There should be a function that will allow a user to merge multiple email chains into a single thread. The emails would need to be sorted by date/time then combine.

                                      • Stop adding your useless folders to my Outlook

                                        Why don't you people focus on Outlook performance issues and stop adding more useless folders that will never be used??? Too much to ask? At least, give me the option to turn that **** off.
