  1. Create Calendar items from emails

    Allow users to highlight text from an email message and create a calendar item with that information already populated into the 'description' of the event.

    For example, someone sends you an address or directions to an event. Highlight that information from the email, click on a button or option and create a calendar event that has that information copied into the description already.

    This is coming in the new version of Outlook.com. If you don’t already see it, you should soon see “Reply all by meeting” in the drop-down menu next to “Reply” when you click on a specific email. Hope that fits your needs. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. Turn off Junk Mail Filtering

    Please allow all junk mail filtering to be turned off!

  3. After deleting message please return me to where I was in the list of messages

    After I delete a message (when I am looking at email on my phone), I am sent back to the top of the list of messages. I would like to be able to continue where I left off instead of going back to the top and having to scroll down and find where I was.

  5. Bing map integration for the location field in calendar.

    This functionality would allow a user to add addresses from bing maps directly into an appointments and launch navigation to the destination from the calendar. A similar experience can currently be found in iCloud calendar.

  6. Spam effectiveness - Improve protection against self spoofing

    It would be helful if you inproved your email filters to auto block emails that are sent to me from a spoofed email account or a email account that makes the to filed look like mine but it a no reply email account that you use to send inprotant notifications from. Which me and other users have been reciving for quite some time and often in another langage.

  7. 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.

  10. STOP SPAM IN MY INBOX

    I'm getting a ton of junk email everyday in my inbox that I don't even want to open my mail. I'm tired of sifting through the inbox and deleting. I've tried all your customer support recommendations and nothing works! I've never had this before. It's been for the past month. I keep adding senders to blocked list, even put in the domains and words to block like your support team said but I'm still getting unwanted emails in my inbox and dirty emails that I don't need my kids seeing! They share the email and this is just becoming ridiculous…

  11. Adjustable column width

    It would be great if you could let me adjust the size of the columns in my inbox. Currently the 'sender' column takes up more than half the space on the screen. This isnot ideal, as I do not regularly have senders that would be of such a length to utilize all of this.

    It would be better if I could see the subject and more of the message preview than a lot of blank space for the sender field

  12. Save sent items sent via connected account

    Please save messages in sent items even when connected accounts are used. (This used to work before transition to OWA and continues to work with migrated connected accounts, but not new ones (my setup changed and I had to delete and reconnect) - see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-osend/sent-items-no-syncing-with-connected-account/308f8245-8fd7-46f9-a384-83790cb9308f)

  13. Create a display name for e-mail Alias

    When you create a new e-mail alias on Outlook.com, it should be possible to create a new display name associated with that alias.

    Current behaviour:
    - When you send an e-mail from your e-mail alias, it displays your actual Display Name.

    Expected behaviour:
    - When you create an e-mail alias, it should be possible to create a different display name for that alias. This will help the alias to be more effective in preserving the user's anonymity or prevent their primary e-mail alias from being discovered (security reasons)

  15. Advanced Search

    With the recent Outlook Mail updates, it seems the advanced search option is unavailable. Please consider another update to allow advanced search options. This is a function I used often. Thank you.

  17. Add entries to birthday calendar without creating a contact

    Currently, if you add a new entry to the Birthday Calendar, it will create a contact record. You should have the ability to create birthday's on that calendar without the contact record. Pets, babies, etc... are 'people' I don't need clogging up my contact list, but their birthdays are important.
