    • Generate links that redirect to specific email threads

      Hoe about creating a feature that allows you to get/create a specific link that will redirect to an email conversation/thread.
      This way one will avoid having to copy entire threads to reference a specific conversation in an email/team/group/etc.

        • I can't use finger zoom (touchscreen) on Outlookmail Inbox like I can on Yahoo, Gmail, etc.

          Make it possible to use finger control on Outlook mail's Inbox on a tablet's touchscreen like I can with your competitors.

          • color quotes

            It should be possible to view different quote levels in different colors in plain text messages, see:

            • Don't use Link Preview when email contains the word "password" or "reset"

              When resetting your password for an internet service, many websites send a one-time password reset link; that is, a URL that can only be requested once, which tells you what your new password is, or presents a form to set a new password.

              Link Preview, which is on by default, requests this url in order to show the preview to the user. Because the link can only be requested once, the server that fetches the url in order to show the user the preview has requested it by the time the user clicks the link, so the user is not…

                    • Disable "suggested meeting" underlines

                      Add the ability to turn OFF the "suggested meeting" underline in my messages. It is distracting and inaccurate. Usually it underlines anything with a day referenced. It is NOT a meeting. It is just a conversation!

                        • INBOX Tabs

                          With everything becoming electronic and you getting bombarded with emails from everybody. I would like to suggest that instead of having a catch-all "Inbox" folder (where you get email from everyone that you deal with), the user should get 5 or so per-configured tabs and can add custom "tabs" (categories) inside the INBOX folder. This is to easily organize emails and view without getting emails mixed up, deleted or lost or forgotten. The current folder system is a not very efficient system as you must either add rules or you move emails manually to a specific folder. Like a company's…

                            Give a beautiful timeline of mails wherein I can see all trail mails in a horizontal line with pop us - eg: sent date; reply date and by and time; etc.

                            Let know if this idea is good. Thanks, Cheers, Chinar

                            • Allow add multiple tags to one mail

                              Hi Team,

                              How about adding a feature for tagging the mails. Which will be useful for search.
                              The idea is: Persion/user should be allowed tag a mail with his/her own multiple tags. The similar feature can be added in Outlook as Addin.

                              Thanks
                              Kasipathi

                                • Reply button like positioned before

                                  Dear all,

                                  Each time, I want to "reply" to a mail but the button is now located on the top-right of the mail. Before this button is was in the toolbar. It's a little lack of time to say me "ah yeah, the button is now located here".

                                  Can we have the option to move the button like done before ? It's just an ergonomic idea and the new version is very great.

                                  Thanks you and have a nice day ! :)

                                  • Great user notification capability

                                    Loved Office live, custom interface, user permissions to display only data relevant to user, easy browser admin, compatibility with additional robust software, web interface with lean and intuitive formatting, I could go on but I will just end up geeking out

                                      Have Outlook.com display properly with older versions of Internet Explorer - it now displays better with Firefox than older versions of IE

                                        When outlook online does not load correctly, saying "Aw snap" is unprofessional and ghetto slang. Please be more professional

                                          Dear Out look Team

                                          I enjoy hotmail very much please re introduce the down arrow and up arrow keys so that we can brows emails from the list without opening items.

                                          It was there for many years and recently it as taken away and I find it difficult now.

                                          please let me know why it as taken away.

                                          thank youll if youll can help in this.
