  1. grey out past events in outlook calendar

    We just switched to Outlook from Google calendar and there was a choice to grey out past events. This was helpful on a visual level to see which events were in the past. Any chance outlook can get this feature?

  2. Option to turn off / disable / hide 'Files' in navigation menu

    I don't use this feature and it takes up valuable screen space in the navigation menu on the left-hand side, so I can see less email folders on my screen. If I could disable it, hide it or similar, that would be great.

  3. Spam

    Spam that i indicate and want removed should just vanish and not go to my deleted folder.
    Also when i choose junk, many are not being blocked. It never has an exact count of what i am blocking.
    Thank you for letting me give my view.

  9. Get Rid of the "Files" Section above Folders

    The new "Files" section is slow to load, is inefficient, and not needed. It's easier to use the search function to find old e-mails and the files needed.

  10. In outlook.com on mobile os, allow the ability to mark email as not spam.

    The mobile site for outlook.com needs the ability to mark email as spam, and the ability to mark suspected spam as not spam. This is possible only in a desktop browser.

    It is also not possible in the Outlook iOS app.

  11. Configuration for "Invitations > Control how invitations, responses, and notifications are handled", on outlook.com not shown on desktop

    This issue is regarding Configuration options for outlook.com"Invitations > Control how invitations, responses, and notifications are handled, not visible on any desktop computer browsers. Only visible on iPad browser.
    While the look of the account on outlook.com can be different across browsers and platforms. But I am unable to understand how and why some options are available only on a particular browser. No other browser on any platform shows this option (unless you change the user agent on that browser to state Apple Safari (iPad)).
    This difference implies discrimination between different types of users based on their platform, which is…

  12. easy password reset. Touch ID for iPhone

    I was locked out of all three of my Hotmail accounts for weeks because of a problem on Microsoft’s end. Older people can’t remember passwords. Consider implementing apple’s Touch ID for iPhone to make it easier for people with memory problems like me to recover their password.

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. Add time condition to rules for messages I send.

    There have been several requests to be able to delay delivery of all messages sent outside of business hours until the beginning of the next business day. This would be an easy rule to set up if "sent during this time" were a criterion on new rules for messages I send. For example, I would set a rule to apply to all messages I send after 6PM and before 7AM, to delay delivery until 7AM the next business day.
