  2. 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.

  4. once deleted no e mail should be still accessable and wiped off the server-Deleted!

    When a person deletes an item in e mail, a risk exist if it still exist as one can simply retrieve a deleted e mail thus it is not deleted -this is bad security-when some one deletes an e mail it should be not stored nor kept on the server. Apple is making great strides in personal security and privacy as MSN should also. Any hack could read my so called deleted e mail. This is huge. And all deleted e mail should auto encrypt until off the server.

  7. Enable Desktop Notifications

    Allow users to be able to recieve desktop notifications with outlook.com. I can't use an email client and this is the only way I would be able to get this. Even gmail has this feature.

  8. ADD contacts button

    you get new mail and theres NO "add to contacts"....button. So every day u have to go to junk mail and MOVE it out. Is it because we have too many contacts already?

  9. Simplify Login Process

    Hi,
    New Look N Feel,

    Getting used to it.

    Please change the way we sign in to the account, don't make us type the full email id, just the first part before the @ symbol should be fine.

    instead of signing in with : myname@something.com
    why not just sign in with just : myname

    Hope u guys understand the pain of keying in the full email id each time we log in to the account

    Regards
    Shashi

  10. Fix debilitating changes to Hotmail

    Please return my email account to the former setup. Outlook Mail (preview) has destroyed all functionality! I can't open my emails on my phone any longer, your outlook app is terrible, and I can't even open my hotmail with my laptop tethered to my phone while on the move, it just hangs up during the loading phase after logging in.

  12. Change the number of emails displayed on a page in Inbox

    I'd like to be able to change the number of emails displayed on any given page in my Inbox. Currently it is displaying close to 100. I'd like to be able to change it to display fewer.

  13. GO TO DATE FUNCTION

    Previous version of outlook had a GO TO function at bottom of page. Need to bring back this function as you can't search for a particular date anymore.

  15. Collapse Folders

    The functionality of Outlook OWA needs to mimic the Outlook Client in regards to collapsing and expanding folders. If I collapse the entire mail box at the top, all sub-folders collapse, and the subfolders remain collapsed when I expand the mail box. The condition of expanded/collapsed folders is maintained from one session to another.

  18. Rules no longer working

    I used to love being able to send my newsletters to different folders. ie Pinterest to a Craft folder. However none of my rules are working anymore even though I have tried to recreate them a few times. It makes going through my junk folder twice as long.

  19. Preview Mode and Delete Options

    There needs to be instructions added in the help section on how to get out of the 'Outlook Mail (Preview)" mode. Ever since my outlook mail has switched over to this, it hasn't been as easy to maneuver.

    Also, there use to be different delete options. I could select an email and delete all from in my mail box, or delete all from but current, or delete all from and block. I can't do that anymore and I used that frequently.

    I would appreciate someone contacting me 303-587-7735.
