  1. Add Email Aliases for Microsoft 365 Family

    I am interested in Microsoft 365 Family addition, but without the ability to use email aliases, it is not sufficient to meet my needs. Please add this as a feature, or an optional add-on.

  3. Do not delete SPAMS after 10 days

    I have VERY important mails from potential employers during job search going to spams. You should not delete spams automatically, as the SPAMS filter does not work proparly also if I forget to look to the spams or do not check my mails, I will never know as after 8-10 days, they are deleted.

  4. allow bcc meeting invites

    At the moment I'm running numerous meetings via Teams, using an Outlook invite. At present there is no way to hide the other invitees, who might be outside of my organisation. This means I'm giving away their email address, which is a potential issue under GDPR.

    If meetings had the same option as emails, to bbc and send to yourself, the other attendees would be anonymous until they accepted.

  5. 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.

  6. Changing a default answer of Office365 logging screen "Stay in?" to NO

    The Office 365 asks every time when I log in: Do you want to stay in? That's because I delete cookies after each session.
    I'm hate that box because every time I must use a mouse to answer NO, because the default answer is YES. The NO has always been the default answer in computers and it should be now also. Normally you can press tab to change NO to YES but not now!

  8. My question was is there a way that I could put extra protection on a particular folder in my list of folders? If there isn't it sure would

    My question was is there a way that I could put extra protection on a particular folder in my list of folders? If there isn't it sure would be nice if there was a method to apply a "lock" of extra security on folders that contain more sensitive data.

    Thank you,

  11. 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 ??

  14. Make animated gifs represent more diverse people

    Hello Outlook--I just sent email to my African-American nephew who graduated virtually today with his Master's Degree in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts University. I searched 'Celebration' for fun gifs, and the only African-American men were athletes. Expand your view of African-American male achievement, Bing!!!!

    Conversely, the US Women's National Soccer Team's gifs from their World Cup wins from last summer were not included in the 'celebration' gifs. Come on Bing--I have come to expect far better from you.

    Thank you,

    Nelle Steele (Microsoft FTE, 2000-2014)

  18. Search not working

    I am reading people want to search without scrolling and the answers are the same. Contact support. My search is not working and it is a huge inconvenience that I have to scroll through many emails to find the one versus using my search feature. It seems to be a major problem that wants to be addressed individually instead of just fixing the issue. Thank you

  19. 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…

  20. Folder pane configuration

    Allow the folder pane to be configured to eliminate the clutter. Things that cannot be removed: Contacts - useless and broken; Archive - why add this folder when I am not archiving?; Conversation History - unwanted and useless, can be deleted but reappears seconds later; Journal - unwanted and useless; Notes - unwanted and useless; RSS Feeds1 - unwanted and useless; Tasks - unwanted and useless.
