  2. Spam filtering

    Could you make a partnership with a spam filtering service integrated into outlook? Some of those services are very effective when they recognize spam patterns.

  3. Ability to block entire domains not just individual adresses

    I have litterally dozens of spam emails from phishing scammers coming from the same domain. I can send 5 or more different emails from the same domain and more show up hours later make the option to block domains in their entirety more visible or make it an option. I've checked PC and mobile versionz and neither seem to have this functionality.

  5. Improved spam reporting: how about 'report as spam' under the junkmail dropdown? And then MS actually DOES something about spam?

    Improved spam reporting: how about 'report as spam' under the junkmail dropdown? And then MS actually DOES something about spam? There is no way to prevent the hundreds of nuisance spam emails I get weekly. Reaching out to Microsoft for help has been a waste of time. There is no way to create rules for all the spam emails, nor is there a way to block them all. Currently one can report as phishing. What good does that do? Apparently none.

  7. Link all accounts to one email

    It'd be cool to be able to just check your email and have all your email accounts in one inbox I mean it will have it color coded so that you know which email it was sent to you but it all being one can box that way you don't have to login to that email with that email that email you log into one and wallah there's all your email s

  9. Show which emails are connected to your wmail

    If you set up an email you have the option to set up a recovery email with it. My idea is to show which emails you have linked to your recovery email so you can always keep track of your other accounts.

    So say that you have 5 emails, one of them is your main email, and your other 4 have your main set as recovery. I want to be able to see which emails are associated with my recovery so that I can remove any over the top old ones that I either closed down or have no access…

  10. On Android, MSN outlook, it would be nice if MSFT LET people compose and Send an email. You guys STILL do not get the meaning of Intuitive

    For Compose use an tap on item called "COMPOSE "
    FOR "Send" use a TAP on item called "SEND".

    YES, please do!

  13. Growup Microsoft growup. Take the case of this editbox itself. The cancel button interfers with our typing after 42 characters are typed.

    Put some developers with common sense in outlook webmail team. There is no way I can select a bunch of emails and delete in the mobile version

  15. When the folder pane is minimised the folder icons dissapear

    When the folder pane is minimised the folder icons dissapear

    This seems to be a bug as it makes the icons redundant, and in the desktop outlook the inbox icon is still accessible when the folder pane is minimised.

  16. Blind copy and Replying to all

    Today I was blind copied on an email. Not noticing that I was blind copied, I hit reply all and sent comments. If a person in blind copied, I would think the reply all option should only go to the sender.

  18. Emails do not display correctly in the Beta

    The very first email that I looked at in the Beta version of Outlook did not display correctly. This happened to be a daily newsletter from the Times of London. I had already looked at it before switching to the Beta version, and indeed did so again after changing back, and it was formatted perfectly correctly . In the Beta version, what should have been links to "read the full story", followed by a small arrow, filled the whole screen with a large blurry Arrow without text. This another display problems made the email virtually unreadable. It was almost like…

  20. How to delete gmail emails in bulk

    I used to subscribe to lots of emails from online retailers. As a result, I have thousands of these emails stored in folders (also known as “labels”) in Gmail. After deciding it was time for a cleanup, I discovered that mass deleting emails in Gmail is not that intuitive. So, here’s how to do it.
    1. Click on the folder / label you want to empty
    In the example below, I clicked on the “Build.com” folder to display the emails in it.
    2. Click on the “Select All” checkbox
    Click on the “Select All” checkbox to select all the emails…
