  1. Deleting Inbox messages

    Deleting inbox messages ; Make the option to delete messages from the inbox more Secure so the whole inbox doesn't land in the trash. I had 6,000 + Unread inbox emails deleted!! I am recovering from ID theft and only my Outlook email which I haven't checked in years had the evidence I needed to Press charges and file a claim with Equifax for their Data breech.

  2. 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.

  4. Give me total number of emails, not 'items'

    Please show me how many emails I have in my inbox. No, I don't care about how many "items" there are; that's such a useless bit of info. Tell me how many email chains I have in my inbox and folders.

    P.S. I hate that my new company forces me to use Outlook. Gmail is much MUCH easier to understand and use.

  6. filtering junk mail

    I would like to be able to add a filter that if a certain word appears it shouldn't even go to junk but just be deleted. I keep getting email that has certain words in it and I just don't want to see that mail at all. Filter works fine to not have mail go to inbox, but would like to be able to do same filtering for junk mail folder. Or set up option where you can say if this word appears in any incoming email just delete it.

  8. Options of selecting deleted duration date on junk email.

    The duration of date of 10 days in junk mail is too, too short. The are some important emails that goes into junk. it needs to be increase, give some options as 15 days, 30 days or 60 days, LET THE CUSTOMES DECIDE. Some life are too busy to be at computer everyday, so the junk mail can have some important inbox mail, we need to keep or before it gets deleted.

  10. New feedback from Outlook.com

    Your new way of identifying the scam emails in my junk folder - by highlighting the scam emails and adding a red exclamation mark next to each one - is an excellent innovation.

    Your filters seem to be able to distinguish between legitimate emails (from known companies) and scam ones. I can glance at the highlighted ones with the red exclamation marks and know not to open them. This is a great innovation. Thank you.

  11. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I deleted 2 thousand some messages. I deleted several folders of e-mails. before this I was sending e-mails and then it said mail box is full I need to delete. I deleted all this and it still says more needs to be deleted.

    I am wondering if it is registering correctly.

    I didn't send this many again that it should say or show it that full.

    Can you explain? my e-mail is dcd7554@live.com

    Thank you.

    Dear Microsoft/Outlook team,

    Hi :) ...Can you please make an option to remove the calendar date (or even, remove the calendar ...and people "widgets" from the side/bottom frame altogether) on mobile Web,
