  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    Hi just a couple of things , the little arrow on the top of the folders scroll bar does not work . Also the OUTLOOK get stuck in send after sending an E-Mail, so whenever you select a folder it ends up with the screen sending the lat thing sent.

  4. 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.

  6. ad blocking

    I suggest that ads marked as junk should stop coming into my in box, it would help enormously if I blocked them, they stay blocked

  7. Create option to remove Top Results from search in Outlook web app.

    The Top Results list in the Outlook web app gives random results and clogs up the user interface. It hinders rather than helps use of the application and causes the user to read emails multiple times and in a random order.

    There needs to be an option to turn off Top Results and remove that section of the search results.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. improve spam filter

    please add blocking by "site" feature. Nowadays we are seeing sites dedicated entirely to host spammers and criminals, that continuously change just the sender name, This would make difficult for them to reach us.

  12. Custom Spam Filter and Mail Blocking

    Add the ability for users to create custom "rules", which automatically block or flag emails as spam. For example, "I'm a Nigerian Prince", "%%%VIAGRA%%%".

    This would be particularly helpful, seeing as spammers use many different email addresses. Blocking one sender doesn't really solve the problem.

    This could be enhanced by automatically detecting key phrase(s) in an email, when a user flags an email as phishing or blocks the sender. Outlook could then suggest the user adds the phrase(s) to their block or junk filter, to ensure their Inbox remains clutter free.

  13. Show All Folders list when Moving Messages

    When moving messages, the drop down box only shows a few folders and will not let us scroll down through the folders. We have to click more times to move a message to a folder that is not at the top of the list.

  14. Allow different layout options (Retro Hotmail, Classic Hotmail, Current Hotmail/Outlook)

    My only idea is to give users the option of choosing from a list of layout, ranging from retro Hotmail, original Hotmail (the kind you used a few months ago), and current Hotmail/Outlook. This will allow users to use the layout they find to be the easiest to use, rather than forcing people to use what Microsoft thinks is easier for everyone, and striping everyone of the choice to change or not

  15. 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.

  16. Email total

    Email total - the previous version of Hotmail stated the number of emails in your mailboxes - the new version doesn't, please advise why this has been removed and can it be re-instated please?

  17. 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.

  18. Delete all in delete folder

    I would love to see a select all option for permanently deleting messages in the delete folder. I have this option on my computer but not my mobile device, and I have no room to download more apps. 1800+ old messages is difficult to delete by groups of five. Thanks.
