  2. Please change it back, so the select all feature only applies to the box you are working in.

    Please change the select all feature back to only select all boxes in the inbox you are working in. Right now select all is all or nothing, to include the flagged items which makes cleaning out my inbox very inconvenient.

  4. Import old junk mail rules rather than starting from scratch.

    I'm thoroughly impressed with the new Outlook.com - great job, and please carry on making it more excellent.
    I'm a bit peeved, however, by the emails asking me if a just-received email was junk or not. Typically that's triggered by an email to myself, and I'd think those are easy to qualify. I also get the same "junk/not?" prodding after each email I send myself, and I'd think the rules stick.
    Lastly, I'm now getting emails which previously (before beta) had long been filtered as junk.
    Thanks for listening!

  5. Integrate a task management (todo-list) system that is worth using!

    Currently, Microsoft (at least) has four different tasks/todo systems, and they are all half-baked. I would like to see Outlook.com combining all of them into a well-arranged view.

    1) Tasks from the Outlook.com Calendar. Simple, straight forward tasks, with no form of grouping or list-building.

    2) Tasks Cortana creates for me, including person-depending and location-depending reminders. Would nice to have a place where I can see, add and edit them. Especially when Windows 10 is here.

    3) Flagged Emails: After flagging a number of mails, I can't see all of them anymore on the top. It would be nice if…

    Thanks for the detailed feedback and comments on this. Like you’ve noted we, as a company, have put work into tasks and task management before and it is an area we continue to give thought to as there is still improvement to make. I will pass this feedback and the comments on to the right folks for more consideration. If I can share anything substantive back, I will. Thanks again for the feedback and engagement.

  7. blocking unwanted senders email

    Your new outlook version is still missing important items. One example: The older versions allowed you to hover the pointer over an incoming message & it would show who/the email address of the sender. And it allowed you a series of choices to delete or block the sender. This was very important to completely get rid of continuous junk mail or possibly email with Trojan horse--instead of opening and having possible problems.

  9. Going Back to Pages instead of Infinite Scroll

    Can you please go back to viewing you emails by pages and get rid of the infinite scroll.
    There is no way of being able to tell how many emails are in your inboxes.

  11. Retain Hotmail User Interface

    Please create a display option that leaves my mailbox looking like it did under Hotmail. I am used to Hotmail, I liked it, and I never asked to be upgraded to anything.

    Please create an option so users who preferred the old appearance and functionality can remain comfortable.

  12. Opt In to New Capabilities

    It would be helpful within Outlook.com settings to be able to opt-in to beta capabilities - is this possible so as to get the latest and greatest experiences Microsoft is pushing out - and provide feedback through UserVoice :)

  13. Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations. Make it optional.

    Get rid of that goddam CONVERSATION HISTORY in Outlook. I don't use conversations and I suspect a lot of other Outlook users don't use it. Why do you nerds insist on making everyone in your image? Make the **** thing optional.

  14. Empty Junk folder

    Why did you remove "Empty"? You need a way to empty the Junk Email folder. This is ridiculous.

  15. Bring back the check box

    There used to be a check box next to each mail that allowed me to select multiple mails and then move them to another folder or delete them at once. Now that it's gone, its takes so much time to do so. Please put it back!

  16. Sort blocked senders list by domain

    Blocked senders list - sort by domain. I'd like to clean up my blocked senders list but can't when there's still addresses using a domain I'm trying to block. The list restarts alphabetically at least three times, so it is hard to find every instance of a domain. If users could sort by domain name it would be easier to check the list and clear out unwanted entries and duplicates.

  18. logout does not work only reloads inbox

    Every time I try to log out of outlook mail it reloads my inbox and signs me back in. This is very frustrating and I am unable to properly sign out of my email which does not make me feel like this is at all secure.
    I would appreciate any feedback you could give to fix this problem.

  19. Deleting multiple emails

    Why is it that I cannot select everything in my inbox and then de-select individual emails without de-selecting everything but 10-15 emails at the top of my inbox? This is EXTREMELY annoying given all the **** email I get!

  20. font color/contrast

    Can you please give some font color options to the new interface inbox? The older font colors work much better for older eyes. The new font color really blends into the background, making it hard for aging eyes to see.

    Also, please bring back the "refresh" button by the inbox. It was very convenient.
