  1. SVG image support in messages

    Could you please add basic SVG image support in sent and received messages? I've wanted the feature for a very long time.

    Why can't e-mails support modern web tecnologies like HTML5, CSS3 and vector graphics like the rest of the world. I understand that JavaScript is not possible and could be a security threat - if a message contains scripts, block it out and leave the rest of it in. The same applies to SVG images, that can contain JavaScript. Block out the Javascript, and either show the SVG image without JavaScript applied (best way, in my opinion) or just…

  2. Fix your lousy email.

    How about fixing your lousy email. Imagine my surprise, when I open my email, and there's all the emails I deleted. MONTHS AGO. AND THEY WON'T LEAVE.
    THERE'S NO WAY TO DELETE THEM NOW EITHER. YOU HAVE MADE IT SO HARD TO USE, I HATE MSN NOW.
    WHO'S THE BRAINIAC WHO DESTROYED A GOOD WORKING EMAIL, AND MADE IT WORSE THAN THE FIRST MODEL EMAIL EVER DESIGNED. THEY SHOULD BE FIRED. AND THE IDIOGS THAT ACTUALLY HIRED THEM, SHOULD BE TOO.

  3. Search and Contacts

    I would like 1 - a better search tool where you just write a name and don't need to worry with capital letters, etc. and 2 - a easier way to add, delete, synchronize contacts.

  4. Easier access to Info and Clarifications to Icons Meanings.

    Menu / Navigation Bar in Outlook.com / Outlook Mail has the four Icon in the upper right hand side.
    These is the : Skype, Bell, Settings, and Question Mark.
    These Icons can have other Icons appear within them.
    For example : I get a GEAR or STAR appear with my Question Mark Symbol.
    I would like to find out what it means but i cannot find any reference to the Change in Icon meaning.
    It would be nice to have a bit more clarification and easy access to what it means.

  5. Prefer the format that has Outlook mail in one tab and Calendar in another, that doesn't change with changing e-m accounts.

  6. Put back the option to view the pic site on mobile devices! Why would you remove this? Now, I can't access all settings unless using a PC.

  7. subject on forwarded email

    Why do you make forwarded email so complicated. When is it going to be easy to change the email subject in a forwarded email? Seriously, your new outlook needs serious improvement. And basic stuff like that should not even need to be mentioned.

  9. Responsive design / float toolbar

    Perhaps a little responsive design with regard to the options on the right? When snapped to the right hand side of a 1920 x 1800 display, the window content is about 40px wider than the window. Frustrating.

  10. STOP MESSING UP MY EMAIL

    My Idea: STOP MESSING UP MY EMAIL.
    When I try to send a link in an email, you now insist on inserting a "preview". DON'T. STOP IT.
    When a package is posted to me, you insist on polluting my calendar with unnecessary entries. DON'T. STOP IT.

    STOP TRYING TO FORCE THINGS ON THAT I NEITHER WANT NOR NEED.

  11. Allow creation of NOT rule

    Allow a rule so that contacts NOT in your Contacts list or Address Book be moved to a different folder. This would allow you to keep only emails from Contacts in your Inbox, and have the rest in another folder.

  13. Not really liking the new Outlook at all


    1. The flagged emails need to be near the to so you can actually find them.


    2. There's not enough colour differentiating the areas. All too white and confusing.


    3. Please put "junk mail" back at the top of the folders on the mobile version. When you have a lot of personal folders it ends up being right at the bottom and takes ages to find. Not at all user friendly.

  14. Message Alert

    There should be a number (in parenthesis) in the tab bar to alert you when you receive email! Everyone else has this basic feature.... I can't believe you don't! It's annoying to have to always click to check. Is this something that I am missing? Thanks!

  16. Improve FROM field with just the email address (omit waffle)

    Hi, could the FROM field be simplified to just the email address of the sender ?

    Sometimes it gets really confusing with so much waffle eg one email I had yesterday said ...

    From: RecycleInBristolUK@yahoogroups.com <RecycleInBristolUK@yahoogroups.com> on behalf of aaa.aaa@gmail.com [RecycleInBristolUK] <RecycleInBristolUK-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

    That would have been better +much clearer as ...
    From: <RecycleInBristolUK-noreply@yahoogroups.com> on behalf of joanna.tidy@gmail.com

    Can that be improved please ?

  17. New "SEND" button

    My idea is to change the "SEND" button back to where it's been the last 8 years I've been on hotmail/msn/outlook, etc.

    Every single time I hit send now I'm just clicking on a "NEW" e-mail button, then have to go back to "DRAFTS", OPEN AND THEN SEND!

    Why on earth would you change something like that??? It was absolutely unnecessary and time consuming.

  19. I've called several times for help with my password reset and no one will help me!

    Maybe have better reps at Mediacom to help with password rest!

  20. Shortcut option to override the default Browser or EXE file.

    Please pass this on the correct development organization...

    Add an entry to a desktop shortcut that allows me to override the default browser with an alternative browser (like Edge).
    This would make for an easy way to test the Edge features and determine if it makes for a better presentation & function.

    It would be nice to have this feature in shortcuts for overriding default EXE files as well.

    Thanks... from a Microsoft fan,
    Frank
