  1. Personal contact card

    The outlook.com account holder needs a personal contact card to identify the user. The information about the email account holder is never consolidated and is intentionally scattered on different webpages never leading to identifying the inbox, sent items and outbox owner

  2. Block Emails with a Built in Virus, Malware, or Hacking file

    To whom it may concern, I want an option to upgrade security by blocking emails even junk or spam that contains a virus, malware, or hacking File. Confidentiality is very important to me. If there is no way to block them then an option to clean them of harmful programs would be a great option as well. Thank you for taking my idea into consideration.

  3. Invite Attendees wont accept email address with o'apostrophe

    When inviting attendees to new event, Outlook Calendar now won't accept email address with apostrophe eg in format "john.o'smith@agency.gov.xx" (generates error box "One or more attendees have invalid email addresses"), even though same email address is used to send emails and even forward received calendar events. This is a new development. Outlook used to let me invite to this (same) address - now just get error - is there any setting in Outlook Calendar to fix this incorrect error/block ??

  4. Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations. Make it optional.

    Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations and I suspect a lot of other Outlook users don't use it. Why do you nerds insist on making everyone in your image? Make the **** thing optional.

  7. When I mark a sender as safe, this should automatically move any messages from them out of Junk.

    Currently. if I use the context menu in Junk to mark the message in focus as from a safe sender, it doesn't move the message I am viewing out of Junk. I have to perform a second, separate action to move it out of Junk.

    This is completely counterintuitive. If I've chosen a sender as safe, then it follows that the messages are not Spam. Why make me take the additional step of telling the system that this message - from a sender I have just marked as safe - isn't spam?

    You should change the logic so that if…

  9. Picture attached

    In the Outlook app, we should be able to have pictures as attachments rather than in the email body along with the text. It is so annoying!

  10. Allow users to disable default charms in calendar events

    I use only the browser version of the calendar on outlook.com. I hate the charm icons that automatically appear next to appointments and events that I create or edit in my browser calendar.

    For example, a cake charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "birthday", or a knife and fork charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "lunch". These charms add visual clutter and take up valuable space. I find them silly, useless, often irrelevant to my event, and a nuisance. By making the charms a "default" feature, Microsoft assumes all users need or want such…

  11. Cut libks to problem contacts

    when a contact item is deleted from your account's "People" listing, the contact should be completely removed from the accuunt and not continue a background association causing it to appear on suggested addtesses in the new email address bar. For example, many small commercial sites desperste for business or bored help desk staff keen to annoy exiting customers will continue to hack and torment users for the **** of it and use your links tokerp tabs.

  12. Allow "Unblock account" to use backup email not just SMS

    I can reset my password using the backup email I gave you, but you won't use it to unblock my account, you only accept SMS. I don't have SMS. Please allow the backup email on file to be used for account unblock as well as password resets. Also, "Contact Support" requires sign in, which you can't do if your account is blocked, please allow that from the registered backup email as well.

  14. In 'week' or 'working week' view, need a setting to 'grey out' days in the past.

    When viewing in 'week' or 'working week' view, a setting to 'grey out' (or alternative colour) the days in the past would make it easier to look at the screen and spot which is the current day. The line across the screen at the current time is helpful but a different colour or shade for the past days would be an equivalent divide for the past/present days and would be more useful too.

  20. Stop harassing me with your app ad

    Stop asking me to download your app! I don't want your app. It's annoying as **** to have to click through it just to get to my email.
