  1. Shrink the email sender header.

    The header of the displayed email preview (with the email sender's info) is too large (tall). Please shrink it down so more of the email is visible.

  2. Linking People contact emails to outlook emails

    When I try to type in people's email address into new emails I am no longer able to automatically see a list of contacts that are saved in my People function. This means I need to go into People find a the contact and cut and paste their email address into the new email. Super annoying and time wasting! I hope this can be resolved soon. Thanks!

  3. default mail app

    give us the option to set either outlook.com on the web or the windows 10 mail app as the default ,especially when in Microsoft edge.

    make one mail app to be used universally. Either outlook.com or windows 10 mail app.
    they do not sync as they are supposed to.

  5. Lock reading pane adjustment

    Is there a way to permanently adjust the size of the reading pane? I've got it on the bottom, but every time I go to read something I adjust the height of it so there are only two messages showing above. Then I switch folders and I have to adjust again. This is really annoying. Please make it so if I adjust the height, it stays that way until I change it again.

  7. Unsend Email Option

    I think you should add unsend email. I think that is the only thing I don't like about outlook.com. I believe you would take a lot of clients from Gmail were you to add that feature. Please add it!

  8. BCC & Outlook Hotmail Connector

    Outlook 2010 doesn't send BCC, though it appears to.
    Outlook.com will send BCC's & sync with Outlook 2010.

    It appears MS Outlook Hotmail Connector needs to be FIXED or REPAIRED.

  11. Add Quick Notes feature to Calendar

    Please add calendar functionality that allows user to add quick notes to any particular calendar date. Users do not always need to create a full event. We would like to be able to quickly jot down something important that occurs on a particular date.

  14. "Junk Email" back to just "Junk"

    Please allow me to re-name the "Junk Email" folder to just "Junk." I don't know what you guys were thinking when you changed this, but it's causing some really annoying interfacing issues with my iPhone, and it was completely pointless.

  15. Delete buttons are not in the same sequence

    I've noticed that the location of 'Delete' buttons to delete email is not consistent. For example, 'Delete' button is on the right side of 'Reply' button when you see a list of emails in Inbox. However, it is on the right side of 'New' button when you view an email. I usually delete an email after reading it, but then I often click 'Reply' immediately after deleting the email because I want to delete the next email without reading it. This is a bit annoying because I have to exit from replying the email and it sometimes creates 'Draft' then…

  16. "Return to Folder List" option after deleting or moving a message

    Include option to "Return to the folder message list" when an item is deleted or moved, not just giving the option to open the next or previous item. Automatically opening a message can be a security risk, so you should allow the user to always choose exactly which message to open. GMail does it. Yahoo! does it, so I know it's possible.

  17. Have default FROM email address for sending emails

    When sending an email. Use the last FROM email address as default. Or even better would be to have a way of deleting past FROM email addresses. For example: I no longer work at a company, I don't want my old work email address to be my default FROM email address, which it is currently.

  18. Chime alert for people in VIP list

    Please add the ability to select certain people in my contact list with alerts. For example, I want to be able to select that when I receive emails from specific people, I get a chime alert. So my email only makes noise when I get an email from those specific people. It's currently set up that way in iOS, it's called VIP and when I add a person to my VIP list, if I get an email from them, my phone will chime. All other emails are silent, I just get a badge for all others.

  19. Deleting certain years

    Is there any way to delete by years. Someone like myself I've decided to clean out my inbox and see that I have emails ranging back to 2011 and want to delete them but it would take to long. It would be great if you could just delete by years.

  20. Show if email is marked passed SPF or DKIM

    Currently, when you receive spam email, all that Outlook says is:
    "Microsoft SmartScreen classified this message as junk."

    There is no reason why e.g. did it not pass DKIM, SPF, untrustful email, suspicious email, suspected of spoofing.

    The reason why this is important is that if I receive an email from an email I trust (e.g. contact@microsoft.com), and it goes to junk, most normal users would think it's a mistake, and mark it as safe, thinking they got an email from Microsoft. What they don't know is that this email may have been spoofed. Many don't even know what…
