  1. 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…

  2. "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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Black Lettering

    I'm still getting used to the new look ; however, one item that needs correction is the black lettering of the e-mail -specifically, there's no change in the color, indicating the e-mail has been opened, after clicking on the title.

    Thank you,

    Danny

  8. Different default colour for items posted in calendar

    Suggestion: Hello. I would like all entries that I create in my calendar to automatically/default display in another colour of box please i.e. auto default colour of a green box instead of the soft blue box that currently displays in the calendar.

    Reason: It is cumbersome to change/catagorize each individual entry's colour every time I post something in my calendar.

    Recommendation: Can you please change the default colour display of calendar items posted from blue to green? Or, can you add an option to the user calendar options to allow our calendars to always automatically format/display calendar entries in a…

  9. Format for date and time

    Please show me the DATE and time for e-mails, not WEEK-DAY and time!
    Or at least; DATE and WEEK-DAY.
    Can not find a setting for change of above.

  10. custom email domain

    I would recommend you create a way to allow small business startups to have custom email domain on outlook.com. I realize you can do this with business office365, but it would be a nice stepping stone to allow active office365 home accounts to have 5 users email setup with a custom domain. then an easy path to migrate to full hosted exchange as they grow

  11. Save sent items sent via connected account

    Please save messages in sent items even when connected accounts are used. (This used to work before transition to OWA and continues to work with migrated connected accounts, but not new ones (my setup changed and I had to delete and reconnect) - see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-osend/sent-items-no-syncing-with-connected-account/308f8245-8fd7-46f9-a384-83790cb9308f)

  12. Never mark as Junk Mail

    A button that is "never mark as junk mail" would be nice. Many of my emails I am consistently marking as not junk even though they are from the same sender.

  17. Calendar colours

    Please add in more colour choices for calendar. And make them streamlined with the Outlook.com app for iOS and Android. It gets confusing when the app updates and the colours go haywire! Otherwise, it looks great!

  18. Mobile App functionality

    regardless of previous comments or replies, I am still seeing nothing on the mobile app that allows you to select several messages at a time to DELETE multiple junkmails at one shot. needing to select each individual message and go through the delete process seems extremely inefficient.

  20. Create a calendar with email reminders by default

    Allow me to create a new calendar where all appointments have "remind me by email" set as default. This way I can trust that import items will always arrive in my inbox for processing, and not be lost on a desktop somewhere back at the office or at home.
