  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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)

  8. 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)

  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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Select multiple emails

    I'd like to be able to function as before: select multiple emails for deleting or moving to another folder, instead of the individual swipe function.

  16. 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. New feedback from Outlook.com

    I have been using Outlook for years. I certainly do not agree with all the changes you are making, especially when you now want us to pay in order to have features we do not want just to remove your ads from our page. I have always used my own ad blocker and now you want me to change that so you won`t take up the space on the right side of my page, it is ridiculous!

  20. Accessing mail while overseas

    If you haven't noticed this planet has gone global. People travel everywhere, yet you don't have even that much common sense to get something in the options to enable us to access email when overseas. Is it that hard to for example generate codes we can use and then that it locks the region someone is in till they either want to move again if they travel to different countries or come back home, or for example have a trusted mobile phone, laptop, etc. to be recognised by Microsoft even when you are in a different location. And I can…
