    • Option to disable Advanced Threat Protection (aka safelinks?) on the web platform (outlook.live.com)

      I was told by the outlook support staff to also post my issue here so that the engineers could register user complaints and suggestions on the issue.

      Issue/ Suggestion:
      Option to disable Advanced Threat Protection (aka safelinks?) on the web platform (outlook.live.com).

      As of late, all links in emails are obfuscated by the safelinks.protection.outlook.com domain.
      Normally it's easy to determine where a link points by inspecting the link URL,and just not clicking on it if it doesn't look like something you've had any contact with.
      Now it's tedious to decipher where the link is pointing at a glance - as…

          Social networking sights send too much messages and among them we can’t find our important mails. So special tab should be made for social media emails.

          • Outlook needs tabs on reading screen.

            ... to make it possible to have more than one message open at a time! Every other email program/client has tabs that make this possible. I use this feature a lot to transfer information when replying, for instance. I know this has been requested in the past. Yet when you offered the "beta", it was full of useless flash, and still failed to include something as basic as tabs (by which I do not mean the folders, which is what some people are referring to as "tabs").

            My frustration level with Outlook.com is increasing, for this and other reasons. I…

              new mails must be red, can't be shown before I click.
              when a sender sent 2mails, I can't see the former one because it is already opened.

              • Unread Message to top of Inbox

                I would like to see an option to set the default view of the inbox to bring unread messaged to the top. This is a feature in GMAIL that is very handy for locating and keeping unread messages in front of your eyes.

                • Outlook Mail and Calender on windows Phone 10 is awesome and beat all other mail clients.

                  Can have same outlook experience on android. The current outlook on android ruins the mail chain format when we reply on any mail. Also it is occupying unwanted space at the top. It doesnt look compact as compared with Windows Mobile.

                    • Any new Change in your SMTP server ???

                      Initially when an mail sent through using smtp-mail.outlook.com, It will not save a copy of that mail in sent folder.

                      But yesterday itself , for newly created outlook account does it (stores same copy in sent folder) , and its not reflected for old outlook accounts.

                      Let me know , when this change is happened ? and Why did you not do the same for outlook accounts?

                        • Keyboard scrolling within message read view

                          Page up/down keys work to scroll within both the inbox and message composition window. However, for some reason, I am unable to scroll up or down using keyboard shortcuts when reading a message. This seems to be inconsistent development and a feasibly useful improvement to align keyboard scrolling functionality.

                              I miss the days from the older versions of Outlook when all you had to do was look at a the sender's line and each envelope by a sender's name showed if it was unread, read, replied to, forwarded, etc. Bring that to Outlook.com!

                                  I have an iPhone 6s and since the recent outlook updates I have noticed that my unread emails are showing as read which causes me to miss them on occasion. Can this bug be fixed please?

                                    • Move message to other inbox from focused inbox by Swipe

                                      I want to move messages to other inbox from focused inbox.
                                      I usually got some messages, which include no-focused messages.
                                      To move these to other from focused inbox quick/easy,
                                      Swipe these to move.
                                      Outlook desktop app can move selected messages from Shortcut menu.

                                      • CALENDAR VIEW

                                        WHY IN THE WORLD DID MY "UPDATE" FROM OUTLOOK 2013 TO 2016 ON MY MAC ELIMINATE MY ABILITY TO POSITION CALENDAR SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH EMAIL ON SCREEN? UPDATES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IMPROVEMENTS IN FUNCTIONALITY, NOT IMPAIRMENTS! THIS IS INCREDIBLY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. EVERY MAC USER I KNOW IS FURIOUS ABOUT THIS. HOW ABOUT AN UPDATE THAT RESTORES THAT FUNCTIONALITY???

                                        • outlook "folder pane" font

                                          In outlook 2016, Make the font in the Folder pane customisable. I am finding it hard to recognize folders with unread emails.
