  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 :)

  5. 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!

  6. Support for the standard CalDAV and CardDAV support

    Many third party clients support CardDAV and CalDAV for syncing of contacts and calendars. Mac OSX Mail and Calendars is the biggest example. Lack of support for these protocols is the biggest reason that my Outlook.com account is currently forwarding to my Gmail account, despite the fact I like a lot of features of Outlook.com. This is long overdue.

  8. Include a 'view Desktop site' on Outlook Mobile

    Most websites offer this at the bottom of a mobile version site: please do so, too! Mobile version Outlook is really tedious to use on big phones and tablets: we should have the option to switch

  9. Bring Back "Find all from Sender"

    Bring back "find all from this sender" when you hover over a sender. This is what made hotmail better than other emails, and allowed me to clean up my inbox easily. I can't believe they took away this feature.

  11. Eliminate Subscriptions Section

    It’s pretty much useless, especially when all it has is a bunch of spam I haven’t signed up for. It either displays links to malicious sites when trying to unsubscribe, or the automated e-mail it generates will let the spammers know it’s an active account. At least I’d like to see the option to get clean up the list of unsubscribed newsletters or whatever.

  13. PURGE folder - Add a Select All and Purge All option

    Either add a SELECT ALL option in your PURGE folder (if it's there I haven't found it so make it more obvious) or when offering the option to delete an email - here's an idea actually Delete it - remove it entirely.

  14. Login screen changed

    Please put the login screen back to having user name and password entry on the same screen and not two screens. It is so annoying. What had to be "fixed" that made you do this?

  19. Inbox Rules

    While I can create a new Inbox Rule, it's not possible to run this rule against all messages in my Inbox already that match the criteria of the rule.

    Is it possible to update this to be more akin to the Outlook / Exchange inbox rule engine?
