  4. Blocking certain email adresses from entering inbox

    First, I enjoy this product and service greatly, but I’m finding an issue for me. Mosty, I dont want certain people emailing anymore and cannot unsubscribe to them. Also, there should be user privacy options for disclosing my info such as name and so on to whom I choose. Thank you for your time.

  5. 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.

    Working on it  ·  WebOlkUVTriage responded

    The ability to select all messages in a given folder (not only the ones that are in view) is being worked on. As soon as we have an update on this, I’ll share with the users in this forum.

  6. Ability to block entire domains not just individual adresses

    I have litterally dozens of spam emails from phishing scammers coming from the same domain. I can send 5 or more different emails from the same domain and more show up hours later make the option to block domains in their entirety more visible or make it an option. I've checked PC and mobile versionz and neither seem to have this functionality.

  7. Blocking "junk" email

    Simplify the process of blocking and then deleting "junk" mail. Previously, a user could block and delete junk mail in a single step using the "block" feature. With the new process, there are too many steps required. First, you must block the sender, then delete or empty the blocked email, then delete the email from the deleted folder. If I have marked an email to be blocked, then allow me to block and empty the selected junk mail from the junk folder in one step. The new process is more cumbersome than the old one.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Spam filtering

    Could you make a partnership with a spam filtering service integrated into outlook? Some of those services are very effective when they recognize spam patterns.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Block Emails with a Built in Virus, Malware, or Hacking file

    To whom it may concern, I want an option to upgrade security by blocking emails even junk or spam that contains a virus, malware, or hacking File. Confidentiality is very important to me. If there is no way to block them then an option to clean them of harmful programs would be a great option as well. Thank you for taking my idea into consideration.

  20. 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 :)
