  2. Birthdays are always set one day earlier/past when synced from phone to outlook

    The problem that Birthdays are not synchronized properly is a very old bug that only affects users in other Time zones (e.g. British, German).

    If you use Exchange ActiveSync to synchronize your Contacts some of the Birthdates are moved one day ahead and some are moved one day in past. It seems to be a problem with da date format that is synchronized as I have no problems with a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

    Pleas fix the problem.

  3. Remove 30 day security update waiting period

    If you want to change your password and have to update your security info, you are required to first update the security info and then wait for 30 days until this is approved before the password can be changed. Hypothetically, if someone has obtained a password this gives them 30 days of access to an account before the password can be changed. This waiting period essentially allows for exactly what it is trying to prevent - unauthorized access to hotmail accounts. There should be a way to change a password immediately even if your security info needs updating.

  5. 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

  8. out of office color too faint

    Hello Microsoft,
    When creating an all day out of office event in Outlook 2016, it is very difficult to change the shading to make it as noticeable as it was in previous versions of Outlook. Is there any way to make the distinction stronger by default or give end users a way of customizing this? Thanks!

  9. You should give customers the possibility to deactivate the safelinks feature

    I am an Office 365 Home subscriber. Yesterday, my Outlook started suddenly use safelinks feature that changes links in emails to a very complicated form, which is visible when using plain text, as I do. Outlook support staff was very helpful and they are going to deactivate the feature. However, I would prefer that this kind of change would be optional and, at the very least, the customer could independently deactivate the feature. It does not make sense that I have to contact customer support in order to receive emails on which links do not look terrible. The problems of…

  14. Leave things alone when they work

    need to be able to send to many more contacts than present where I get cut off after 15 contacts.

    With the old outlook I could send to many more and if I made a mistake I could restart from where I left off.

    Please fix this and why did you change the old outlook without asking if I wanted to.
    Regards
    Robert Racicot

  15. 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.

  17. Make "Not Junk" work

    Improve junk filter and "Not Junk" filter, so that once a message is marked a certain way, all subsequent messages behave as intended (move to junk or mark as not junk as the case may be)

  18. 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.

  20. use old passwords

    you need to allow for users to have the option of using old passwords that have been changed over the years as me personally i have used several for various reasons and am running out of passwords that i can remember and writing down passwords is a very bad idea. so i would like to go back to an old one
