  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. Fix your web browser for phones.

    I do not want to add the application to my phone, yet using the web browser on my iPhone is ******* atrocious. Its so buggy. Even just trying to tap my email to open it the side bar opens up to check off the boxes to delete the email. Even just trying to make this message it was irritating. If I didn't have years of emails on this, I would have deleted this outlook account long ago. This is a garbage system.

  8. Outlook Cursor Problem

    I am writing to complain that you changed something and my cursor now goes to the top of the page after opening every email message I view. This is absolutely ridiculous!! The cursor should automatically go back to the same location in a person's Inbox as it was when they clicked to open a message. Please see that this item is fixed and goes back to the way it worked previously.

  11. Bring back the cleanup mailbox by date button in the OWA (O365)

    O365 Administrators used to be able to 'clean up' user's mailboxes based on date. This option has recently gone missing from the OWA and can only be done by creating a sweep rule on each individual user's account. This is incredibly inconvenient!

  12. Complaint- Why is the the formatting tool bar on the bottom of the plane?

    The toolbar needs to be a the top of the plane to make it easy for users to utilize the tools needed. We read from top to bottom, up and down. Please change the formatting in new message plane.

  13. Amazing what people write reading our emails lol ok lol. Sorry but ur not that important. Anyways can WE delete 100s of EMails 1 click

    Would be very optional yes and helpful but if we could delete hundreds if not thousands of emails within one click. I've had Hotmail since high school I'm now 38 and it has changed not for the bad but for the good to be identity safe for the users which I understand and appreciate. With all the other Advanced competitors I understand we need more positive helpful comments so that Hotmail can be one of the best most user friendly the cure for our children in grade school or High School and sometimes as we keep our email address throughout…

  14. Gmail's label:unread equivalent for advanced search

    Currently, working through to clean unread emails is very difficult without the ability to search for something similar to the 'label:unread' functionality in gmail.

    By using that in the searchbar, rather than via a drop down or filter option, we can append other advanced search criteria such as 'label:unread from:*@abc.xyz" and better work through the inbox.

    This is now TABLE STAKES for any power user.

  16. Finding emails by date range

    Please can you put back the quick scroll and look up feature for searching emails by a date range. The current options of slow scroll (approx 10 emails at a time) or keyword search is not efficient nor effective. Thank you.

  18. DO NOT CHANGE SIGN-IN PAGE! IT CONFUSES SENIOR USERS!! (e.g. suddenly throwing up a Premium account option page). ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT NOW!

    My poor old mum (82) - generally very good with computers - is utterly thrown by the sudden appearance of a new sign-in page which looks NOTHING like the usual sign-in page (I'm referring to the Premium ad). It denies her access to email (because of her inability to navigate all the new options) - this must be taken seriously at this COVID19 time. She needs to be able to contact family, doctors, pharmacy, etc via email. Not being able to get in the front door of her Inbox has utterly thrown her. Please please please make it ultra simple…

  20. 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
