  2. 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)

  3. 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!

  5. 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

  7. Mark as read when opened

    Now when I open a mail on Outlook on the web (Office 365) or Outlook for iOS, it remains unread, and turns to read when moving away. Please change this behavior to mark the mail as read when the mail is opened.

  10. When reply to an e-mail, margins are not set to the user selected default but to a standard setting of 1/8th inch. Have to reset manually.

    When reply to an e-mail, margins are not set to the user selected default but to a standard setting of 1/8th inch. Have to reset manually every time if want a wider margin.

  13. Allow logins with just email and password

    Allow users to log in with email address and password. Currently, every time I log in to outlook via a browser, even if I use my work email, I will be logged into my school email. This doesn't seem safe at all; that I put one address and password in and get access to another.

    The posted solution is to close all windows after logging out and restart the browser. The problem with this is, I always have many tabs open that I'm working on for research and don't want to take 15 minutes to book mark everything, which I…

  14. Create Release and Allow button in End User Spam Notification email

    Right now users can release emails, but they cannot whitelist those email address unless they are a security admin. It would be nice to have a "Release and Allow" button that would let users release the message and add the email to their safe senders list. Or you could create a specific role that let's users whitelist the address instead of having to give them Security Admin.

  17. Showing seconds in sent mails

    Showing the seconds in the timestamp in ALSO the sent mails, which is VERY important in numerous occasions, could be quite handy, wouldn't you think? I have NO idea why on EARTH this simple yet effective thing isn't possible on Outlook mails!

  19. Would like option to see Recipient email address / name

    I sent one email, which I sent separately to individual email addresses.

    Once they were sent, I put them in one folder. When I open that folder, it is impossible for me to see, which email went to which person because only my email address appears (as the sender). I looked in the "Sort" option, and "Recipient" is not offered. I would like to see either "Recipient" offered as a sort option or the ability to list both Sender/Receiver email addresses.

  20. Please make the text format popup when composing email in Outlook Online OPTIONAL

    In Outlook Online (outlook.live.com/mail), when I'm typing an email in HTML format (rather than plain mode), an annoying popup appears over my text every time I highlight a piece of text. The popup obscures my text (sometimes even the literal text I'm writing, depending on my window size and where the popup simply chooses to appear) and is NOT helpful at all. I have checked Settings several times and cannot find out how to disable it.

    I guess it is intended to "help" me access the font size button, bold button, and italic button, etc., faster... but those buttons are…
